If you are moving because you have a new job, or got a promotion or building a new career, here are a few important factors to consider.
Who is paying for your relocation?
One of the most important things you need to understand is the cost of your move as well as who is going to be paying for it. For example, ask your employer about relocation expenses if you are taking on a job with a new employer or you’ve received a promotion that requires you to relocate. Every organization does this differently but one of the simple ways companies handle this is to give you a set amount and then it’s up to you to budget appropriately.
Yes you need a budget
Speaking of budgets, it’s important for you to understand how much your move will cost. And it’s not just the moving company. There are other expenses associated with relocating including travel for yourself and your family, possible temporary housing and additional services such as professional packing. If you’re moving for a job, the first phone call you need to make is to your moving company so you can start your moving budget.
Negotiate time off
If you need to move across the country for a new job, you’ll want to ask your employer about additional time off to settle in. The last thing you want to do is get to your new home and get right to work surrounded by boxes and other household items. Taking time to unpack and get comfortable in your new home is a great way to start fresh.
