After months of anticipation, you finally get word from your employer that you are relocating. While this is an exciting time, it also comes with a lot of questions. Most importantly, you need to find the best relocation services and negotiate the best price. Often, people accept the quoted price. However, in this situation, you have room to bring the cost down through negotiations.
For relocation services, most companies reimburse their employees for specific things and up to a certain percentage. As an example, reimbursement for packing all of your items is usually up to 82 percent. Moving a car is also a reimbursable item up to 80 percent, fitness equipment up to 52 percent, and unpacking your goods up to 49 percent. What this shows is that in addition to negotiating with the moving company providing the services, you may need to negotiate with your employer. Ultimately, you can relocate without spending a large amount of money.
