Who Will Be My Main Point of Contact?



You may have already or will soon be introduced to a relocation assistant or consultant. They work along with the organization and with you to ensure an easy and smooth transition, organize and submit paperwork, arrange transportation and do other tasks that will help you move from one destination to another.


If you are reading this, you will most likely be relocating to the Toronto downtown area. The benefits of a corporate relocation assistant are to help you ease the financial burden and stress so that you start your new position as soon as possible. They can help cover parts of moving you, your family, and home goods, arrange a vehicle, temporary accommodation, a trip to find a new home in a good neighborhood, and more.

What Services Does a Relocation Package Include?



One of the components of corporate relocation is to be given access to a corporate relocation package organized by your current company. With terminology you will hear more often soon on corporate relocation such as a full pack and unpack service, excellent quality moving service with reasonable insurance coverage, home sale or lease/tenant/breaking penalty assistance, house-hunting trip, temporary relocation housing stay for at least 30 days, transportation, including auto moving to the destination, and other miscellaneous expenses coverage.


Keep in mind that a corporate relocation package can differ slightly depending on whether the employee is relocating internationally into Toronto, Canada, or domestically by the province, region, or city. And that the employee can always ask and negotiate additional services as needed.

Where Can I Find a Reliable Moving Company?



Whether you or your relocation assistant looking to book a moving company to have your home goods transported from location A to B, it is important to look for a reliable, honest, and trustworthy company. Looking at different companies for quotes, asking questions, and seeking if your organization has worked with one in the past.


Keep in mind that you have a budget and schedule you need to move with and a lot of paperwork and legal documents to keep track of. The best way to avoid scams and the hassle of coordinating a long-distance move with fragile personal valuables is to find the best movers in your city, recommended by your corporate relocation service, or one that is nationally known, with good reviews and ratings.
