Everything You Need to Know About Relocation
According to Wikipedia the definition of relocation is:
Relocation, also known as moving, or moving house, is the process of one or more individuals leaving one dwelling and settling in another. A move can be to a nearby location within the same neighborhood, a much farther location in a different city, or sometimes a different country. It usually includes packing up all belongings, transferring to the new home, and unpacking, as well as administrative or bureaucratic tasks, such as changing registration data, change of insurance, services, etc.
Our simple definition of relocation is "the action of moving to a new place and establishing one’s home or business there". People relocate for many different reasons such as a new home, a family reason or a new job or job transfer offer. Whatever the reason for relocation might be in your case, TCI has you in safe hands! Relocation services vary from furniture relocation to vehicle relocation. The cost of relocation depends on different factors such as:
- Size/Weight (Physical Dimensions of Object Being Transported)
- Destination Mileage (The amount of miles required to reach delivery)
- Time of Year (Peak Season/Low Season Applies Strongly to Any Relocation)
Through years of experience, TCI has mastered the craft of relocation. Although we specialize in vehicle relocation, we can also assist in moving other things through our preferred partner carrier network. We make your relocation experience a breeze while ensuring a fair relocation cost. Because we have developed such a good relationship with our carrier partners, we can provide our customers a variety of relocation packages. Our relocation specialists guide you through the whole process so that there are no unanswered questions or concerns. It is important to note that relocation happens just as any other transport on a truck that goes down the highway. Trucks do get delayed sometimes and one must be able to understand that. If you are ever promised a “guaranteed” pick up, just know that you might be getting misled. The nature of trucking which ultimately enables relocation to occur does not allow for guarantees. By incorporating that into your plans, you will be left with no surprises. We always tell our clients that they must be flexible in order to set realistic expectations.
When searching for a relocation company, it is important to consider the following:
- Relocation Package Options
- Relocation Cost
- Timing and Availability
- Pricing and Insurance provided
One must do adequate research before selecting a relocation company. Check relocation company reviews so that you know you are selecting a reputable company to relocate your belongings. If your company/employer is paying for your relocation, make sure to ask how much is covered and if a specific company which you have in mind is an approved vendor for them. It is also important to see what moving expenses are tax deductible so that you can deduct it from your taxes to save even more money on relocation.
