You’ve just learned that you’ll have to move to take on a new role at work. The good news? Many companies will offer you temporary lodging in a corporate housing unit as you make your transition, according to business expert Brian Ferdinand in a recently released article. In this type of housing unit, you can find linens, appliances, furniture, and other essential items designed to make your stay as smooth as possible. However, you still need to take a couple of small steps to prepare for your corporate housing stay. Let’s take a look at them.
Do Your Reconnaissance Before Moving into a Corporate Housing Unit
In the recent article, Brian Ferdinand, the managing partner of SoBeNY and its parent company, CorpHousing Group, explains that before you move into a furnished apartment for rent, it may behoove you to ask your employer what the housing includes. In this way, you can easily determine what items you’ll need to bring with you and what items you can leave behind.
Also, if you’ll be moving to a different region of the country, purchasing a brand-new wardrobe may be necessary for adjusting to your new climate. Make sure that this new wardrobe features appropriate work clothing, casual weekend clothing, and even clothes for formal situations.
Secure a Temporary Storage Space During Your Transition
As you find yourself between homes, you’ll need to secure a place for storing your extra belongings. That place may be a spacious storage unit in the city you’re leaving or in your destination city. Alternatively, you may be able to store your belongings at a family member’s or friend’s home if he or she has extra space to accommodate your belongings. Then, once you finally buy a home or rent an apartment or house with a long-term lease in your destination city, you can transition your belongings from storage to your new home.
All in all, relocating can be a time-consuming and energy-consuming process, according to Brian Ferdinand. This is especially true if you possess a large number of items that you’ll need to move to another city. It’s also true if you’ll be moving to a city that is hundreds or even thousands of miles away. However, by taking into consideration the above tips when creating a plan for yourself and your loved ones, you can be more prepared to move into a corporate housing unit when relocating for work.
