Understanding which moves qualify as local can help ease some of that strain.
Local moves occur within the same city or state and do not exceed 50 miles in distance, typically including metropolitan areas in that same region.
Local relocation services are provided by domestic or international agencies for employees relocating within a country or state. These services typically involve planning and implementing various business processes such as obtaining visas/long-term stay permits, finding accommodation (accommodation), schooling children (education), helping spouses secure employment (trailing spouse services) as well as introducing family members to local culture.
Local moves typically refer to moves occurring within 40 miles within a state’s borders; however, state law may differ and Davcon Relocation Service knows all the rules and regulations specific to your state.
Long Distance Services
Moves that cover 40 miles or less within one state are generally classified as local; exceptions can be made depending on state law. Davcon Relocation Services in Lancaster County has affiliation with Wheaton World Wide Moving which gives them special authorization to transport households across state lines.
Long distance relocation services, which often encompass cross-country or even international moves, differ significantly from local moves in that they often necessitate more complex procedures and the notification of certain entities such as insurance providers, banks, utility providers and the post office of any impending moves.

Corporate Relocation Services
Corporate relocation services provide domestic and international transferees with various specialized moving support. This can include finding an appraiser to perform a home value assessment (BMA), finding temporary housing in their new location and organizing shipment of household goods.
RMCs specialize in assigning each relocating employee a relocation counselor as part of their services, who is responsible for overseeing details, expenses and company policies when moving employees.
An RMC should understand all of the complexities involved in designing an organization- and budget-specific policy, while being familiar with terms associated with your move such as per diem rates, spousal assistance or buying out lease agreements. You should ensure you have an idea of all fees involved before signing any contracts and signing any documents; this may involve determining how much the RMC will pay third-party service providers such as real estate agents or freight companies.
