Moving into a new house or relocating to a different city can be expensive and stressful. Whether you’re going across town or across the country, the IEEE Financial Advantage Program has made it a bit easier by helping you to pack up and move. IEEE’s MyHomeBenefits offers members in the United States and Canada discounts on moving services, packing materials, and storage space. The service uses George Moving and Storage, an agent for North American Van Lines, one of the continent’s biggest moving companies.
The MyHomeBenefits Web site offers a number of services. Under its Moving tab, you can request an estimate of how much your move is likely to cost, including what it would cost to handle it yourself, and you can learn to pack like a pro. There’s also a helpful glossary.
The Settling-In tab can provide information about your new community. Type the city and state on the Neighborhood Reports page and you get demographic statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau about such factors as housing inventory and residents’ educational achievement and income levels. Do the same on the School Reports page and you get a list of public, private, and parochial institutions. Click on a specific school and you find enrollment and staffing information along with the telephone number and Web site.
