Under the leadership of Mark Olsen, Parsifal Corporation strives to develop quality products and services associated with auditing, billing, and relocation management. Parsifal Corporation is also the developer of MyReloWork, an advanced relocation management tool for employers and their transferring employees. The following tips may prove useful to employees preparing to undergo a job transfer that requires them to move.

1. Use employer supported resources. Many employers offer relocation services for employees undergoing a transfer, such as assistance with transportation expenses and housing searches. If your employer does not openly offer, you may try requesting them.

2. Plan ahead. A successful move involves planning ahead and making the right decisions for you and your family regarding neighborhood, travel distance to work, and similar considerations. Do research and become familiar with the area you will be moving to.

3. Keep your budget in mind. Develop a relocation budget that leaves leeway for unexpected costs and charges.

4. Factor in family needs. If your family unit includes a spouse or children, you will also need to help them adjust to the new environment. For instance, you may need to help a spouse find a new job or research the best schools for children.

5. Choose the right realtor. Make sure you choose an experienced real estate agent to list your home to receive a realistic estimate of your home’s worth and how long selling it might take. In addition, do similar research for a realtor in your new hometown.

6. Decide upon moving services. Determine what kind of moving services you will need and begin making arrangements. You may want to use an insured, reputable moving company for long-distance moves, particularly those with long-distance experience.

7. Stay organized. Keep important documents, contact information, and other essential items together for easy access. You might also want to keep a to-do list to help remind you what you have finished and what remains to do.

Under the leadership of Mark Olsen, Parsifal Corporation specializes in relocation procurement technology (RPT) and relocation auditing for household goods. Parsifal Corporation, with Mark Olsen serving as president and CEO, frequently offers relocation services to corporations, governments, and other parties.

Mark Olsen recently noted that on its website, Parsifal Corporation recently publicized updates related to the relocation industry, including news about Gateway Terminal India (GTI), Port of Nhava Sheva. The article notes that continued labor issues have caused the port’s terminal gates to remain closed in August, which has created an extreme level of congestion at the port. According to the article, the GTI port is close to Mumbai on India’s west coast, and it manages almost 50 percent of the nation’s maritime shipping. Until the labor strike is concluded, import container vessels will avoid the port, and export-loaded containers will continue to be delayed at the terminal.

Parsifal Corporation also highlighted the news that an $8 billion project to expand the Suez Canal in Egypt was recently completed ahead of schedule after just a year. Originally constructed more than 150 years ago, the Suez Canal underwent renovations that increased both the depth and width of the artificial waterway. The renovations could reduce travel time on the canal by seven hours, while also increasing the canal’s shipping capacity from 50 to almost 100 ships each day.

3 Important Tips to Make Your Move Easier

3 Important Tips to Make Your Move EasierMark Olsen, President at Parsifal Corporation, strongly recommends that you let the professionals pack your Home Goods. However, if you decided to pack your own Home Goods then continue reading. Olsen suggests 3 top tips to consider in the following:

Make a List:  Write everything down! You’ll thank yourself later. Before you pack even one box, create a simple record keeping system. Create a computer-printed list of numbers with a space to write the contents. Or have a spiral-bound notebook for the job. You will place a number on EVERY box you pack and list the contents on your record list. Don’t put the list down unless it’s in a place you will call Packing Central. This is where you’ll find your labels, marking pens, box tape, and other supplies. When describing the box contents, be specific — “A-D files” is better than “files”, and “Tulip dishes” rather than “misc. kitchen”.

3 Important Tips to Make Your Move EasierHave Plenty Of Supplies: Mark Olsen explains further that,Don’t make me say this twice”– you’ll need LOTS of boxes–probably more boxes than you think, and having enough boxes will make your life easier! (If you buy your boxes from a moving company, you can always return unused boxes for a refund. If you got them free from the grocery, just toss any leftovers.) Have about 10 boxes set aside to use for last minute items on moving day, such as bedding, clothing, and cleaning supplies. You’ll need strong plastic packing tape to close up the boxes securely. Use unprinted newsprint (newspaper can stain your items) or packing paper or bubble wrap to wrap and cushion household goods. Again, you will need more supplies than you think, so get extra materials to allow the packing to go smoothly. Return any unused supplies after the truck is packed.

Utilize Wardrobe Boxes These tall boxes are perfect for bulky, lightweight items such as comforters, pillows, and blankets, as well as clothes that need to remain hanging. Mark Olsen continues to suggest that you call your mover to ask the width of the wardrobe boxes they will be bringing. Then measure the length of clothing poles in your closets (including coat closets) to see how many wardrobe boxes you will need. You can also use them for closet storage boxes, shoe boxes, and other bulky items such fabric bolts or gift wrap tubes.
