From Point A to B: King Relocation Services Sets the Standard for Corporate Moves

According to the American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA), 11% to 13% of all relocations take place during the summer months – children are out of school, the weather is nicer, and home buying season is at its peak. Furthermore, AMSA reported that 42% of household goods moves that took place during 2012 were corporate moves. Chances are now that summer is in full swing, you are likely in the throes of coordinating one or more corporate moves for your employees and/or new hires.

At King Companies, we understand that you have many choices when it comes to choosing a provider to assist with employee relocation. We also know that the complexity associated with cross-country, or even cross-town moves, can add stress to their already busy lives. This is why we are committed to offering a suite of products and services that are designed to make any household goods relocation, regardless of size or location, as seamless and efficient as possible. In fact, we believe that after looking at what we have to offer, and comparing our relocation services to our competition, you’ll find that King Relocation Services to be a cut above the rest.

Some examples of the key factors that set our relocation services apart include:

  • Priority Move Consultation: Whether we are moving your CEO or an entry-level new hire, each employee will be assigned a single-point-of-contact at King Relocation Services who will serve as their advocate throughout the entire moving process. The Move Counselor will be part of a dedicated team of assigned professionals whose sole focus is on complete customer satisfaction. All unnecessary communication layers are eliminated due to the direct relationship between King Relocation Services and United Van Lines, which enhances the overall relocation experience.


  • Web-based Pricing: King Relocation Services leverages UniGroup’s Web-based pricing platform and Quotes-To-Go technology to provide access to real-time pricing information. Carrying Apple iPads, our surveyors, coordinators and sales managers are able to fast-track access to relocation survey results, providing a relocation cost estimate within minutes. This technology also enables us to provide you and your employees with easy-to-read inventories.


  • Customized Web Portal for all Your Reporting Needs: We can provide you with the flexibility of analyzing the household goods relocation expenses of your employees any time, through our web-based reporting tool that provides up to 80 fields of billing claim data, and enables you to export this information in a Microsoft Excel or CSV format.


  • Policy Review & Development – At King Relocation Services, we assist our clients with developing compelling and competitive corporate relocation policies that support your efforts to recruit and relocate top talent.


  • Policy Counseling – Our move coordinators also help your employees make the best decisions possible based on your corporate move policy.


  • Destination Services: King Relocation Services offers a wide range of customized destination services that are designed to familiarize your employees with their new home base, connect with the community, and ensure that they find the neighborhood and living accommodations that are right for them. We can also provide your employees an inside look at their new city, familiarizing them with the neighborhoods, school districts, local attractions, transit options, and more, so they can explore their new locale with confidence and enjoy all it has to offer. We’ll even put them in touch with real estate and mortgage professionals so that they can find the home of their dreams.


  • Rental Assistance – Based on the current real estate market, King Relocation Services is finding that many employees are choosing to rent following relocation. As such, we can assist them in finding long-term rental living that matches their needs and budget.


  • Temporary Housing – We can also help your employees get settled in a comfortable “home away from home” that will provide a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of 6 months of temporary housing, while they decide whether to rent or purchase a new home
