Employee/New Hire Relocations
Whether you are recruiting nationwide or worldwide for your business in the Northwest or transferring employees between branch locations anywhere in the country or the world, Hansen Bros. and Allied have a solution you can count on.
Never moved an employee?
There are many aspects of an employee relocation to consider. Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage will meet with you to establish a complete employee relocation policy outlining your requirements regarding what your company would like to authorize an employee to move. The policy is written in a no-obligation pricing agreement that can be used for 1 move or 1,000 moves depending on your needs. This can be customized depending on an employee’s position within the company. Services which can be customized include:
Rick and Josh did an outstanding job delivering our furniture that had been in storage. On the morning of delivery, we had no power and there was a fallen tree blocking access to our house from one direction. But that didn't phase them - they arrived early (despite having to take a ferry and navigate the downed tree), and put furniture together in the dark. They carried a very heavy oak desk up a narrow flight of stairs in an awe-inspiring manner. They were speedy, professional, considerate, and accommodating. They made the whole delivery process pleasant and easy. — Amy C., 11/15/2017See What 2,650 Customers are Saying
- Full packing of all loose items
- Partial packing or no packing at all
- Packing of just fragile items
- Transportation (How much is allowed?)
- Storage while looking for a new residence
- Shipping auto(s)
- Shipping motorcycles
- Shipping boats
- Bulky items i.e.; pianos, kayaks, canoes, recreational equipment
- Valuation levels
- Company paying for everything, just part or reimbursing the transferee a lump sum?
Plus many other items to consider so the company's policy and the transferee’s or new hire’s expectations are the same before the relocation begins. A clear understanding of what is allowed and expected helps ensure employee satisfaction and still maintain budgetary constraints. Moving an employee can be a stressful time for them and their family, so having everyone’s responsibilities outlined helps them plan accordingly. If it’s a new hire, it is good to have a moving policy established before the interview process so if the topic comes up, the policy is in place and it is less of a negotiable item.
Hansen Bros. can provide insight into what other businesses are providing across the country to help ensure you are staying competitive in the market. The prospective employee will be able to consider the relocation policy along with your job offer during their decision making process so there are no surprises later. Starting with a well defined plan and expectations helps them integrate into their new position easier, increasing productivity and trust with their new employer.
