Streamlining Your Company

There aren't many things that make me mad, but when it comes to running a company, few things are more frustrating to me than lazy employees. A few months ago I started keeping closer tabs on my workers, and it became immediately clear that there were some team members that didn't care at all about things like productivity, saving money, and doing the right thing. I wanted to do something to correct the situation, so I started honing our processes, holding more team meetings, and perfecting the processes. This blog is all about streamlining your company and making things right.

4 Things You Can Do To Save Money When You Relocate For A Job

by Elmer Johnson

Relocating for a new job opportunity is an exciting experience. However, it's also inevitably stressful because it's so important to get off to a good start in your new location so that you can excel in your new professional position.

You need to get off to the best possible start by ensuring that your move doesn't become too expensive. The following are four things you can do to save money during your job relocation:

Ask your new employer for assistance with relocation expenses

If you're moving a long distance for a new job, your new employer may be willing to help you with moving expenses. You should definitely make sure that your new employer knows that you're going to have to change your place of residence for your new job. 

Discuss your move with your new employer and request assistance if you're confident that your new employer wants and needs you badly enough to invest some money upfront in relocating you. 

Ask your new coworkers for advice on an affordable moving service

If you're in touch with your new coworkers, ask around about the best moving services in the area. Many of your coworkers may also have relocated from another place in the past. As such, they're probably one of the best sources out there for info on making the move cheaply. 

Negotiate a timeline for making the move with your new employer

Don't let your new employer pressure you into making a hurried move that's both inconvenient and expensive for you.

If you do things last minute, you're probably going to pay more and struggle to find a mover that can accommodate you on short notice. Stand up for yourself and negotiate a doable timeline for making the move that won't cause you to start your new job under a lot of stress and debt.

Get a storage unit in your new location

It might be a good idea to get a storage unit in your new area so that you can initially put a lot of your belongings there rather than having to arrange them right away in a new home.

Renting a storage unit is typically inexpensive, and it can drastically cut down on the work and even costs of your relocation. If you rent a storage unit, you might be able to initially rent a small apartment in your new area rather than immediately buying a home. This way, you can take your time to shop around and find a good deal on a new home rather than overspending on an impulsive and rushed decision.
