U.S. Relocation Services
Our U.S. domestic clients turn to us for assistance when moving employees state-to-state or across the country. We listen to what they need, and design exceptional domestic programs from the services we’ve detailed below. Aside from being top-notch listeners, we’re experts on policy review and design, best-in-class practices, on identifying your biggest challenges and most unique problems, and working with you to develop inventive and intelligent solutions. Add in our 24/7 online portal access for selected employee needs and client initiations, status updates, tracking, and reporting – as well as our full database – and your relocation capabilities suddenly become more robust! We’re happy to schedule a meeting with you to discuss our entire array of support.
The more your candidate understands about the new location, commute times, and the community, the better decision he/she can make. We can coordinate a customized, comprehensive tour of communities and neighborhoods, and address such requirements as shopping options, medical facilities, places of worship, schools, and community activities. Our Area Orientation services also can assist your company with offer acceptance rates.
Home Sale Programs & Assistance
If you find your new hires and transferring employees need to sell their homes quickly, ask us about the assistance we can offer through trustworthy, professional real estate brokers. We share your goal of home sale at the highest possible price, as quickly as possible for your employees. Home Sale Programs include: Buyer Value Option (BVO), Guaranteed Buyout (GBO) and Amended Value Sale (AVS).
A home that isn’t selling increases the cost of temporary housing, storage, and return trips home, and is a difficult distraction for the employee. Our Home Marketing Service is free to employees and corporate clients, and the employee can retain choice and flexibility after they are paired with a qualified, relocation-trained real estate agent. Our team then manages the agent, ensuring a proactive marketing plan is developed.
We can help your transferees secure their new mortgage by providing reputable, competitively priced mortgage options that are tailored to suit your specific needs and the needs of your relocating employees. Our preferred providers offer financing and banking options for our clients and their employees, as well as special benefits, such as low relocation interest rates, discounted lender fees and priority service for quick closings.
Real Estate Services
Our personal approach to relocation as your employees’ consultant, advocate and liaison helps them determine and rank priorities in their home search so they can quickly clarify which properties are most suitable, shortening the search process. We pre-screen real estate agents, setup tours of the new location and amenities, arrange home previews, and provide professional advice during the offer, negotiation and home purchase process for employees.
Household Goods Moving
We have strong professional relationships with qualified household goods moving companies who are experts in delivering quality U.S. domestic moves. Our deep experience in managing household goods moving and storage services means your moves will be fully vetted for cost-effectiveness and efficiency.
We know how essential a comfortable living space is, and how important a role it plays in an employee’s safety and productivity. Using our worldwide network of approved national providers and a comprehensive needs analysis, we present the best housing options for our clients and their employees. We also can arrange for property previews and furniture rental. Then we negotiate lease options to ensure that expectations are met and are within budget for each relocation.
Our consultants gather detailed information on budgets, housing, schooling, lifestyles and financial requirements. Through VERSA’s Relocation Counselor, your employees are provided with quality real estate agents to provide rental assistance and guidance in their new communities. We will assist with negotiation and help finalize the lease. Services also include move in/move out inspection assistance, guided specialist tours, lease negotiations, utility hook up and disconnect along with assistance with services needed when moving into a new home.
Our School Search program is designed to provide relocating families with information about local public and private schools in their new community. Your employee will be provided with performance statistics, enrollment procedures and school contact information. We also arrange guided school visits, if needed.
Our top-rated technology interface is your support system for relocation expense tracking, gross-up and operating systems. This comprehensive expense management system allows us to offer a variety of expense tracking and reporting solutions to manage lump sum payments, travel expenses, expense reimbursements, gross-up calculations and year-end payroll reporting.
Our strong relationships with top travel providers help us set convenient and cost-competitive airline, hotel and rental car accommodations, including transportation services to and from the airport. And we’re always ready to set up tracking and reporting for your program travel expenses.
Lump Sum Assistance
Without prior experience, employees often find it difficult to manage their own lump sum program. Our Relocation Counselors can identify vendors who will be most likely to offer pricing that works best with your employee’s lump sum allowance.
VERSA Relocation will help maintain and provide cost-effective programs to aid in managing lease payments, 24/7 maintenance, repair and emergency services. Additional services offered per client policy include: routine internal and external inspections, utility tracking and reporting, and maid service for move out inspections.
