Relocation is Exciting. It’s Also Stressful.
Where do you begin?
Relocating? Don’t worry: it’s normal to feel overwhelmed. Even a simple move within your own neighborhood can pretty much take over your life for a while. Moving to a new city or country—with a new home, maybe a new job for your partner, and new schools for your kids—takes the stress to a whole new level.
We’re here to help lift some of that stress. We’ll explain your relocation benefits, help you use them to best advantage, and give you a shoulder to cry on when you need it. And we’ll help smooth any bumps in the road during the process.
Your Dedicated Employee Relocation Counselor
Your Relocation Counselor is your single point of coordination and “go-to” person.
Throughout your relocation, your Counselor will advise you, explain your relocation benefits, and coordinate any services included in your relocation package. Most importantly: they’ll listen.
Having all the data you need when you need it is a huge stress-buster. TRC’ s ReloSource technology empowers you and lets you engage with your relocation on your terms.
Offers on homes. Inspection reports. Expense reimbursements. ReloSource delivers accurate, instant information—and lets you act on it quickly—wherever you might be. This relocation tool builds on the personal assistance from your TRC Relocation Counselor, giving you the ultimate flexible relocation experience.
What Your Move Looks Like
Every move is a little different, depending on your personal and family situation, the locations you’re moving to and from, and the benefits your company offers. Here’s the basic process.
Before the Move
Right after your company authorizes your relocation, your Relocation Counselor will reach out and set up a time to review your relocation package. The RC will discuss your preferences, needs and concerns; explain the process, and begin coordinating any departure services included in your benefits, such as help in selling your home.
During the Move
Your Relocation Counselor will continue to help you get ready for your move and transition to the new location. The RC will continue to coordinate and monitor the departure activities while also coordinating any destination services included in your benefits, such as help in finding your new home and moving your household goods.
We don’t pack you up and forget about you. Your RC will continue to work with you until you’re comfortably settled in your new home. If you’re on an international assignment, your RC will check in on you from time to time and ensure that things like visa renewals happen when they should.
Frequently Asked Questions
If my company hires you to provide relocation services, is there a cost to me?
Each client’s policy is different, but TRC’s contract is with your employer and they are responsible for contracted charges. If you request additional services outside the scope of your employer’s benefits, your employer must approve this request, and they would decide if you are responsible for the cost of any of these added benefits.
Can I pick the relocation benefits I want?
This depends on your employer’s policy. Some programs include some choice for employees and others include a standard package of benefits.
Can I sell my own home and find a new one on my own and just get a cash allowance, instead of using TRC’s services?
This also depends on your employer’s policy. Generally speaking, you can elect to use the benefits your employer offers or you can decline them.
