Corporate Moving FAQ

What is a corporate relocation?

When a company transfers an employee to another workplace location that’s far enough away to require a move, the company may offer that person relocation benefits.
 
This relocation package typically includes funds to cover reasonable moving expenses to avoid putting the burden of relocation costs on employees. This allows employees who are offered a new role the ability to accept the new position without worrying about moving costs—and increases a company’s ability to recruit and retain human talent.

Depending upon the corporate moving package offered by a company, the employee may also receive funds to cover packing/unpacking services as well as the actual transportation costs. They may receive dollars to pay for selling their home, to cover temporary lodging, or to help with their new mortgage.

If your company offers these services (or wants to start), this is a situation where corporate relocation services can be needed.

How do you know if you need a corporate moving program?

When you need to move your talent to a role in another geographical area and intend to pay all or part of the moving expenses, you’ll need to offer a relocation package. Issues to consider when designing your corporate relocation benefits include the following:
 
Different geographies have different costs of living. If the employee is moving from a place where costs of living are lower to one where they’re higher, the corporate moving package may need to be more generous. If the reverse is true, take that into account.

If the employee is moving out of state, then state and local tax rates may vary, and your company may want to consider differences when offering a package. For international moves, tax considerations require even more consideration.  Tax laws change and vary by locality, which makes transparent and timely reporting from your mover a must for compliance.

Some employers gross-up employee benefits to cover the tax burden of benefits received.  You will want a clear policy defining what the company does or does not offer to treat your employees equitably.

Equity also implies that all relocation packages should be prepared in a consistent way for all employees. That doesn’t mean policies can’t accommodate the individual situations of employees, but you will want to put your mobility policy in writing and make it available. If policies change, inform employees of updates.

Not all corporate moving companies offer a broad spectrum of relocation services, from interns and new hires to executives and international moves. Suddath does.

What does corporate moving mean?

Corporate moving refers to a situation when an employer transfers an employee from one location of a business to another, and the new location is far enough away to necessitate a move. Promotions and new roles may take employees to different locations, or corporate decisions may be driving a transfer to a new geographic area. Either way, it’s customary for the employer to help pay for an employee’s move.

Corporate relocations can be complicated and involve more than just the process of transporting the employee’s household goods to their new home. The company may also offer to provide packing and unpacking services or storage in transit to make the move go smoothly.  Some relocation policies cover a broader range of support, such as help with purchasing a new home or temporary housing to help the transition.

If your company offers corporate relocation or plans to in the future, experienced corporate moving companies such as Suddath will review with you what your employer covers during an initial consultation. When moving day arrives, our expert moving teams will seamlessly transport an employee’s belongings from the current residence to the new one. And if there’s ever an issue, we’ll handle it promptly with our fair claims settlement process.

How do you prepare to relocate employees?

When a transfer supports business goals, your company may decide to offer a relocation package. Here are a few important considerations when determining what your corporate relocation package for employees will include:
Cost of living: If the new location has a higher cost of living than the current one, you may consider an offer of a change in pay rate as well as offering an appropriate relocation package for the higher-cost area.
Tax rate: State and local taxes vary, so if your employee is moving to another region, be sure to factor in differences in state and local taxes when calculating expenses. Check with your company’s financial advisors to ensure that your moving packages are fair, equitable, and transparent for all involved.
Fairness and consistency: Relocation packages should be consistent for all employees and provided in writing. Informing employees promptly of any updates will help prevent misunderstandings.

If you are considering moving your entire place of business, you may want to look into our comprehensive office moving and commercial moving services.

Not all moving companies specialize in corporate relocation, but we do. Our personalized approach and cutting-edge technology will streamline the corporate moving process, whether you need help with moving your business, your employees, or both.
