Strategies for Employee Moving to Raleigh

Strategies for Employee Moving to Raleigh

After searching for months, your company has finally found the perfect candidate to fill an open position and they have accepted the job. The only obstacle is your new employee does not live in or near Raleigh and will need to move. This is not a problem if your business has done its homework and has a moving company that you can rely on. If not, here are some things you need to know and share with your new employee.

Offering the Best to Your Employees
Even a move across town can be stressful. A good moving company can help lessen this stress for your employee. It might be that this is the first really big move your new employee has made. Or it might be that they are old hands at the moving game. Either way, when it comes to employee moving, Raleigh businesses will want to offer the best so that their new hire is happy with their move.

Research movers with good customer service records. Check out their affiliations and memberships and see if they have won any special awards. These are good indicators of quality. Once you have found a mover, meet with a representative to discuss budgets and the scope of what you will be providing your employees for their moves. Look for companies that offer a single point of contact. This will make it easier for everyone to communicate.

Moving Any Distance Requires Planning
Employee moving, Raleigh business owners know, is usually a long-distance affair. Every move requires packing, transporting and unpacking. Employees may want to do their packing, but letting the professionals handle the bulk of this job will take a lot of the stress out of the move. Movers are experts in crating and specialty packing. They can also assist the employee in de-cluttering, staging and organizing for both the move-out and move-in processes. A free move preparation packet can be invaluable in helping your employee plan for the move.

Extra Services Make for an Easier Move
Your employees will appreciate the extras that a full-service moving company can provide. These include property protection, valuation coverage, full or partial packing and unpacking, online move tracking, and short and long-term storage options. Ask if free destination information packets are available and let your employee know to ask for one. Your employee will likely want to know about other areas surrounding your Raleigh business, like Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary, Wake Forest and others.

Making your employee’s move a smooth transition will benefit you both as you begin your new employee-employer relationship. The right mover can make all the difference in starting off on the right foot.
