Whilst not always the case, typically, most relocation packages (if one is offered by an employer), will include some, if not all, of the following:
The Cost of a House-Finding Trip. Employers may cover the costs of travelling to the new location to find a suitable new home. These costs typically include transportation and lodging expenses.
Home Sales / Home Buying. The costs of selling your home and purchasing a new home are commonly included in relocation packages. This will include the normal expenses incurred when buying or selling a house.
Job Search Help. Some employee relocation packages will include assistance for your spouse or partner in looking for a new job in the new area.
Transportation. Companies may reimburse travel expenses to get to your new home.
Temporary Housing. The cost of temporary rental housing or a hotel for a certain period of time is often agreed upon and provided.
Moving. The cost of renting a moving truck.
Full Pack / Unpack. In some cases, you may be lucky enough to receive the expenses and logistics of the move. Moving companies will be sent to pack up your house and then transport them to your new home, where they will unload the boxes into your new home.
Storage Unit Rental. Your new employer may pay for the cost of renting a storage unit for an agreed period of time while you get settled into your new home.
Lease Break Coverage. If you are going to break a lease in your prior location, your employers may pay the fee to break any agreement.
As mentioned above, it is important to discuss with your employer just what is included in any relocation package that is offered.
