New hires, single renters, entry level employees, lump sum benefit recipients…this group has varying needs and, in some cases, requires a different level of service for their household goods transportation. Traditional van line services work for most relocating employees, but there are individuals who don’t need or require the full service of the van line and today’s market provides a myriad of reliable options for this group!
Transportation alternatives such as a self-haul, ABF UPack, and ReloCube/POD provide you with solutions to meet this groups’ specific needs. Each provides specialized services designed specifically for smaller shipments, and could provide a significant cost savings. And, you do not lose the ability to customize according to the specific employee needs. You can tailor the programs based on each individual’s needs and they all offer their own distinct flexibility around shipment times, storage, packing services/materials, and insurance.
While the vast majority of employees require traditional full service household goods transportation, we have had a very positive experience with these alternative methods offering the service as part of our overall Relocation Management
program. All of these alternatives have a proven track record and with guidance from the Relocation Counselor, a transferring employee can find just the right fit for getting their belongings to their new location.
