So you got a new job and looking to relocate closer to the new workplace.

Here are some tips to have a stress free transition:

1. Planning is everything

Research the new location, learn about the new city and neighborhood. Find the best places to live there and find a good apartment, condo or house.

2. Get company support

Depending on the situation your employer may be ready to pay for some or all of the moving expenses. Contact your boss to discuss this. Often they will reimburse you after the fact. You should also research what taxes can be exempt or not.

3. Find a great mover!
