All things you need to know
When you move into a new house or a new city, it can be a pretty complicated process. Not only do you have to adjust to the new environment, but you also have to go through the arduous task of Packages and unPackages. More often than not, items get left behind or get damaged. Could you imagine if that happened?
We have an extremely busy schedule and don’t have much time to spare. It’s essential to hire a packer and mover to take care of our relocation needs. Nowadays, packers and movers provide tailored services so your move goes smoothly. In this article, I’ll explore the types of services provided by professional packers and movers.
You can find many types of relocation services:
Relocating an office is a difficult and expensive thing for companies. It can’t be done without setting down a detailed inventory of all the office materials, who they belong to, and how much they cost. Useful supplies that an office needs include computers, printers, tables, and chairs.
One of the most crucial parts of moving is how you pack your items. If your items are not carefully packed, they could be damaged in transit or at their new home. Packers and movers will help you with the packing process from start to finish. They’ll start by helping you inventory what you have, then assist with the packing, and even help with unpacking your items.
Moving homes is a time-consuming process and not like office relocation. For one, you have less manpower and the problem of having to move around furniture, which comes in all shapes and sizes. Fortunately, there are lots of professional movers who specialize in home relocation services. Services include packing material for specific items (e.g., glassware, china) and helpers to assist you with the process.
In this category, you are moving within the same city and usually do so via road. Packers and movers handle your transportation logistics, loading, transit, and unloading of your items. They take extra care to ensure that goods like furniture, appliances, and other articles are not damaged during transit.
Shipping your things from one state to another, across the country, is tough. There are a lot of heavy things to move and long drive hours. To make that easier, some movers and packers also offer car transport services and container stuffing.
Recent years have seen an increase in the number of people moving abroad. This might be due to the increase in the number of multi-national companies in India. There are plenty of movers and packers to serve the international relocation needs. If you need storage facilities, they will usually be provided if you’ll pick up your belongings at a later date. This feature is a big help for those who are waiting on visas or arrive before or after their goods have arrived.
Auto relocation is a convenient service that solves one of the biggest headaches every time you move to a different state or across the country – getting your car to your new location. You tell us where you need us to deliver your car and we’ll make sure it’s picked up and delivered as close to your preferred address as possible.
The cost of our car relocation services varies depending on factors such as the make and model of the vehicle being moved as well as the distance. You can get an estimate by filling out an online quote calculator.
Types of relocation packages
When you start a new job, sometimes your company will cover the cost of getting you there – and sometimes they’ll only cover some of it. We can break those two options down even further by looking at the costs.
When relocation assistance includes direct billing, your company pays all of your bills for the services they choose to cover. This is a nice option to have because you won’t have to follow up with them yourself, and you can focus on more important things like getting to your new location. Many companies love direct billing, especially for new hires, because it’s another way to simplify the process and ease their minds.
Another benefit of direct billing is that these expenses are excluded from taxes. So, instead of having to report your expenses on your tax return and pay additional taxes, these charges are completely exempt.
You can also ask your company for reimbursement. This is similar to paying for travel costs on business trips and is set at a certain amount. If your company doesn’t work with a third party for employee relocation, you’ll need to find moving services that fit your budget.
In this situation, you will have to keep track of receipts, but it’s less stressful because you know that you will be reimbursed for some of your expenses.
Lump sums are a growing trend in relocation packages. More and more companies are switching from the old-school all-inclusive packages to lump-sum offers.
Lump-sums are easier for employers to provide support for, and they give employees the freedom to figure out how to use their money.
With a lump sum, you’ll be given one per-negotiated, one-time payment that you can use to cover your moving costs. Anything over is yours too. That being said, it’s important to set a budget and stick to it.

We’ve talked about this before, but I really think it’s important to make you aware of third-party relocation. These companies are in the business of moving people, so they help companies manage the employee relocation process for them. But without a third party, most relocations are handled by the HR team.
But with one, all you need to do is send in your paperwork and they’ll give you all the information you need on benefits and how to use them (though be careful, some companies will make up benefits rather than provide what you need).
