The Weichert Move Network (WMN)
Provides customers with an unsurpassed single source of communication, cost control and accountability throughout the entire household goods shipment process. Shipment and storage of household goods is one of the most significant emotional barometers of any relocation. When the process is completed in a seamless, timely and professional manner, you’re able to settle in that much quicker. When the process doesn’t go smoothly, the effects can be far-reaching, halting productivity, causing undue stress and leaving a negative lasting impression. Where many of our competitors outsource this critical function, Weichert offers a brighter solution: our unique, on-site Weichert Move Network (WMN). Through the WMN, we deliver peace of mind, providing professional, quality Move Management Services through one point of contact. We do it all: estimate costs, schedule pick-up and delivery, provide comprehensive insurance coverage, audit invoices, track cost savings and administer claims.
Our carefully-selected, thoroughly-trained alliance partners represent the best and most service-oriented van lines and agents in the industry. These alliance partners offer significant strengths: over 40,000 annual moves, more than 15,000 vehicles, access to 25 million square feet of storage, and nationwide coverage. By consolidating our activity through these partners, we can offer our clients and their relocating employees a wide range of tangible benefits, including:
- Consistent service quality

Weichert Corporate Housing
Will keep your relocating employees comfortable and productive when permanent residences in the destination location are not yet ready for occupancy, Weichert provides cost-effective temporary housing solutions through Weichert Corporate Housing (WCH).
Our properties are selected with the needs of today’s businessperson in mind. Locations are carefully researched to ensure the most contemporary amenities and proximity to corporate and business centers; major commuter arteries; shopping, dining and recreation.
The synergy between Weichert and WCH allows for unmatched flexibility and responsiveness, Weichert Counselors work directly with specially designated WCH Counselors who assess your employees’ needs and identify appropriate housing in accordance with client policy. WCH Counselors are seasoned housing experts who handle everything for your employees and their families, ensuring comfort at every step of the process and making them feel “right at home.”
Consider the following advantages that our temporary housing solutions offer over extended hotel stays:
Experienced WCH Counselors, working in tandem with Weichert Relocation Counselors, serve as your employees’ advocates throughout their stay and assist with their temporary housing needs.
Widest Range of Options
We offer the finest apartments, condos and townhouses across the U.S. and Canada, with styles to match every taste and budget. Whether you’re permanently relocating your employees or just need short-term solutions for temporary assignments or summer internships, we can help.
The apartments available through WCH are not only more spacious than a hotel room, they’re designed to function as permanent homes, with kitchens, multiple bedrooms, larger work stations and more storage space.
Greater Comfort at Lower Cost
Put your employees and their families in a hotel room for an extended period of time, and they’ll soon be cramped, confined and longing for the comforts of their departure residences –sentiments that don’t bode well for successful assignments. Our properties offer more space and better amenities, and we work to create a “home away from home” for relocating employees and their families. Further, during an extended hotel stay, the cost of restaurant meals, room service and telephone usage can become exorbitant. And this is before you factor in the hotel tax. Our properties are more economical, offering kitchens and appliances for employees to cook their own meals, and local phone service is included in the price.
Living out of a suitcase can get tiresome. When your employees are comfortably situated, they’re more relaxed, more productive, and able to focus more on the new assignment.
Consolidated Billing and Reporting
Weichert audits and processes all temporary housing invoices to ensure accuracy and simplified client billing. We can provide detailed reports to help you manage this costly relocation component.
When you consider these advantages, and the fact that your employees will enjoy the comforts of home for as little as half of the cost of a hotel stay, we think you’ll agree that Weichert Corporate Housing offers a Legendary temporary housing solution.

WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
Our Pledge to Giving Back and Sustainability
Although we have grown into a global entity with colleagues and clients across the world, we have never forgotten our roots as an independent, local business with strong community ties. For close to 50 years we have cascaded that “people first” philosophy throughout our global operations, recognizing that leadership goes beyond helping our clients grow their businesses; it’s also about making a positive impact in our communities and around the world. At Weichert, we are proud to say WeCARE.
Through our WeCARE initiative, we encourage and empower employee volunteerism and corporate giving that supports helping families and improving communities. We never cease to be amazed and humbled by our colleagues’ commitment to positively impacting the lives of others, be it employees being relocated around the globe or families in need in their respective communities.
We also strive every day to be a greener company, because promoting and implementing positive environmental processes is not a political issue, it’s a human issue. And it is the responsibility of leading global organizations such as ours to take the initiative and reduce our carbon imprint. Recognizing the importance of conducting business in an environmentally-responsible manner, we have vigorously pursued environmentally-friendly alternatives to everyday tasks and products at all of our offices across the world.
