RMC Markups Prevent Cost Containment
Speaking of cutting costs, your relocation partner should help you contain costs - not add to them. When your RMC needs you to spend money in order for them to make money, its interests aren’t your interests. Your goals are misaligned. Simply put, it’s not a good match.
RMC Markups Destroy Trust
The idea that your longtime RMC may be marking up your invoices is undoubtedly hard to swallow. Your RMC may be the exception. However, if you’ve wondered why your costs are so high, or why you never see actual vendor invoices, it’s time to investigate.
Ask yourself, if your RMC has been engaging in this unfortunate industry practice, how can you trust them with your program going forward?
