Accepting a new job or a promotion that involves relocating can be so exciting that at first you might not have considered the significant expenses involved in the process. While many employers will help with the costs, many do not have a standardized policy, so it is up to you to negotiate reimbursement for residential moving services into the job offer.
The important thing about this is knowing what costs to expect. One way to get started is to meet with a company that offers residential moving services, so you can get an estimate. At In & Out Moving & Delivery LLC, we are happy to provide a free estimate so you can make an informed decision during the negotiations. There is no obligation, so if you find that you do not accept the job if negotiations don’t go well, you don’t have to worry that you’ve committed to or are paying for a move you no longer need.
There are other expenses that you may need to consider besides residential moving services depending on your situation. Perhaps you might need temporary housing assistance or help in selling your house in the Charlotte, NC area. Always consider the difference in the cost-of-living between the two locations, as well.
We can’t help you with all the other components of negotiating with your potential new employer, but we can give you peace of mind as to the costs involved for residential moving services so you’ll know if they are offering enough to make it worth it to you.
