Athlete Relocation as MLB Trade Deadline Approaches
Athlete relocation is a reality for professional athletes from the moment they sign their first professional contract. The contract is signed on the dotted line, and then ballplayers are shipped off to one of several minor league cities to improve their skills. From there, if the baseball gods are smiling on them, they finally make it to the big leagues, but that doesn’t mean their relocation concerns are over, for there is always the possibility they will be traded, or they will move of their own accord due to free agency.
July 31st is the deadline for trades in Major League Baseball. The first blockbuster trade of the year happened a couple weeks ago when Oakland traded away their first-round picks for 2012 and 2013, and a player to be named later, for Chicago Cubs starters Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel. With two weeks to go before the deadline, you can expect to see quite a few more trades happening.
And those trades will mean relocation, the transporting of possession and vehicles to a new city; the selling of pro athlete homes, and the purchasing of new homes in new cities.
During our ten years in the professional athlete relocation business, we are often asked how can relocation be simplified? How can this major upheaval in an athlete’s life be made relatively pain-free?
The answer, of course, is to turn it all over to a professional in the relocation business. We know that you have a sport to play. That is your business and your livelihood, and you don’t have the time to shop for a new home, sell your luxury home, move your cars and take care of the hundreds of other small details associated with a major relocation. So relocation companies like Sportsrelocation.com do it all for you.

We will sell your real estate, find you suitable real estate in your new city, or temporary luxury housing, and we will make sure that your possessions and vehicles are transported with no hassles.
