As the economy begins to pick up, we’ve seen a major influx auto transport in conjunction with home relocation. Home relocation can in some cases include auto transport services as part of a package deal, but more often than not, it is left up to the transplantee for figure it out for themselves.
Though auto transport for home relocation might seem like a no-brainer for some, for others, it seems to slip the mind until the last moment, or even worse, never occurs at all. But using auto transport in conjunction with home relocation services can be quite powerful, and can often save you a great deal of time, stress, and money.
Why Use Auto Transport for Relocation
It might be helpful to define precisely what Home Relocation is before moving forward. In general, relocation is simply the act of moving from one place to another. It could be from house to house, apartment to house, house to apartment, and any other combination that you can think of. But perhaps the most common practice associated with the term relocation is professional relocation.
When a family uses a professional relocation service, it is often a result of either a career change or promotion. In such cases, one’s corporation usually foots most or all of the moving bill. In our opinion, this is the perfect time to use auto transport for relocation. The benefits are as follows:
- Employers will normally reimburse you for the costs of shipping/moving/transportation
- It’s easy to get lost in the all of the preparation and decision making required to make a move successful. Auto transport can help ease some of that burden.
- When coordinated with other relocation services, such as household goods moving, auto transport can be extremely convenient.
Using Auto Transport is Tax Deductible in Certain Cases
It is a little known fact that auto transport can, in certain cases, count towards a tax deduction. If you’re using auto transport to move your vehicle from one city to another for the purpose of relocation, then you can actually write auto transport off on your taxes as an expense. And while some consider it to be a luxury, the IRS does not! So if you’re worried about the expense of auto transport as a person who is relocating for a job, fear not, Uncle Sam will give you a deduction.
