Not looking to do any work for your next move? You're in luck. Professional full service movers can handle all the tasks associated with your move so that you can sit back, relax, and watch your to-do list dwindle down without having to lift a finger. It's a great option for people who'd rather not take on the enormous job of moving or for those who, for whatever reason, cannot handle the tasks of moving on their own. And while it's certainly not the cheapest option, the amazing convenience provided by full service movers is pretty much always worth it. Below, we'll go over what to expect from full service movers, including what sorts of things they'll do for you and how much you're likely to spend.

The average job relocation expenses package will include the following features. Please note that this is a more subjective, than objective, list. Depending on the industry and their competition's relocation packages, employers can tailor their programs to offer the most competitive and attractive packages to attract and retain top talent.

These should be compliant with IRS regulations, and should also align with the organization's goals and objectives. Regardless of the type and number of relocation package components, those that meet the needs of both the employer and employee will be most effective. Oftentimes, these components can be negotiated. But what are some of the features common to the average job relocation expenses package?
