Van Lines

Garrett Relocation has contracts with national van lines and international freight forwarders. These relationships afford corporations, of all sizes, access to competitive discounts on transportation and storage, as well as contractual benefits such as $100,000 no cost valuation on household goods. Competitive bids are secured for each shipment, helping the corporate client select the van line best suited to meet the specific requirements for every move. In addition, each transferee receives:

Monitoring of the entire move process, from obtaining quotes to scheduling the move
One-on-one counseling with dedicated account team associates
Comprehensive move information kits
Post move follow-up and evaluation
