Short-term moving means changing of residence for a relatively short period of time. The relocation can extend from 3 months to the year. The main point is that both employee and the company know that the relocation won’t be permanent. Such a moving takes place in several occasions:
The company opens a new branch in another city and it needs to transfer several employees there to control the work, educate staff or manage other issues.
An employee or a manager is working on the specific project that requires his constant attendance in another city.
In the case of the short-distance relocation the aspects of the moving process depend on the specific period of the relocation. Sometimes you are moving only for 3-6 months and there is no need to take everything you own. You only need a limited amount of items and sometimes a few furniture pieces.
Even if you are going to stay in the new place for a year, sometimes the company rent for you a fully furnished apartment so your belongings can stay in your old place or you can keep them in the depository.
In any of these cases the moving process in quite easy. You need a small van or only your car to transfer your property.
