We have a scheduled move in a couple of weeks from East coast to midwest being paid by my spouse's current employer. But 3 days after our move is scheduled to arrive in Midwest we will be moving again. Our final destination move will be to west coast and will be paid by another employer. While in MIdwest we will need to add about 3 rooms worth of items to the truck. We are supposed to have packing and unpacking services for both locations. So, my question for you is, can the accounts be transferred on arrival to Midwest from one employer to another without unloading truck and then have one of the local packing contracters pack the rest of stuff in Midwest house to add to that truck? could they just bill the current employer for the move to MIdwest and then transfer the same inventory plus additions to the new employer.?
This is assuming the new company agrees to accepting this moving company instead of wanting to bid job to other moving companies. Please share your thoughts and advice. Thank you.

The new company will want at least three quotes. It's pretty standard. Maybe you can negotiate using this one company into your signing deal. You might have to reimburse the first company for relocation fees.

If your moving system involves you driving the truck, there would be noone to report that you did not unload it. It seems like this fits the spirit of the law, since each job is offering to pay a relocation. Otherwise, could you just bill each job for the move to the final location with one company taking the bill from current location and one taking the bill from the Midwest house?

Thanks for replies. So no we do not have to repay relo fees from current employer because we are on assignment here and moving back was part of the deal at the end of assignment. My husband was able to find a new job in another company instead of staying with old company back in the midwest and we were able to sell our house at the same time. Our closing is that same week as our move is scheduled to arrive there. We would have 3 days to pack up rest of house and clean it so that its ready for closing. No one is willing to give us an extension on time and we are trying to not pay too much from our own pocket. Crazy. Let me know if you have any more insight. I don't even know if the moving company would allow a transfer of accounts or if the new company chooses another moving service I would think that they would make us unpack so that they could pack it themselves and see if it meets their requirements.

Can't you just have truck #1 unload into you midwest home's garage and have truck #2 pack the rest of your belongings and put it all on their truck, you shouldn't have to unpack. I can't imagine the logistics of getting two separate moving companies being paid by two different corporations to play nice together.
