Understanding Relocation Services

Moving companies know how to get the job done. However, even the best moving company will need a little help from you to produce the best results–like, for example, hearing from you about what kind of relocation service you expect. Here’s a quick look at the main types of relocation services, so you know what to expect (and how to communicate with your movers).

Why Hire a Moving Company for Relocating?

Before we get into the details, let’s take a look at the big picture: why hire a moving company in the first place? The answer to this question can be broken down into three basic areas:

  • safety
  • stress
  • security

Safety refers to the physical dangers of moving everything you own from one place to another. Without the right tools and expertise, you risk serious injuries–so let the professionals do the heavy lifting.

Stress is all about you and your to-do list–which can get pretty long during a move. Hiring a moving company helps you shift the focus to all those other things on your mind because you can rest easy knowing someone else has got your back.

Finally, security means that you can trust a moving company to get your belongings to your new location safely, quickly, and reliably. You won’t have to worry about damage or loss because you’ll have experts on the case.

Types of Relocation Services

Now that you know why it’s a good idea to hire a mover, what are you supposed to tell them? Here are the basic types of relocation services!

#1: Local

This is the easiest and quickest type of move, but that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily “easy.” Local relocation generally means that your movers will be responsible for everything.

#2: Long-distance

Long-distance moves are from one state to another and tend to be longer and more complicated. You’ll have to work with your movers a little bit more to get all the details ironed out.

#3: International

International relocation is by far the most significant undertaking on this list. Your moving company will probably have to store your belongings while you’re getting from one country to another, and you and your movers will have to work together closely.
