There’s a laundry list of tasks and considerations when moving your business to a new location, but planning and executing the relocation itself doesn’t need to be one of them. The right commercial office moving company can offer you a host of benefits and assistance throughout the planning, execution and post-move stages. Here are three important factors to consider when choosing the right commercial office movers as you tackle your relocation project.
As we mentioned above, moving an entire office entails a to-do list about a mile long. Not all commercial movers offer moving management services; organizing and overseeing the move from start to finish is most efficiently conducted by experienced professionals. When you work with the right commercial office mover, you’re making an investment in moving efficiency due to the inclusion of pre-move coordination, an inventory tracking system, on-hand moving supplies, scheduled packing, loading and unloading and much more. All of your office electronics, desks and other office equipment will be moved in an organized and efficient manner. In addition, you’ll be able to enlist the help of commercial office moving services for scheduling, tracking and coordination efforts related to your office relocation.
One of the most important things to keep in mind while moving heavy office furniture and delicate electronics is safety of both personnel and the equipment itself. Skilled professional movers have the tools and knowledge to move these items safely, disassembling and reassembling when necessary. Movers who have not planned and mapped out the move in advance can damage crucial equipment during handling or transit due to lack of experience or improper packing, loading and unloading. When you work with professional office movers, you’re helping ensure that your equipment is in the hands of those with years of experience. To ensure a swift and safe move, the company in question should use industry best practices, modern techniques and specialty equipment in packing, moving, transporting and unloading.
When relocating your office, it’s understandably important to have as little interruption as possible to your business operations. The right commercial moving company can assist with executing your move on schedule and will be able to provide efficiency, accountability and flawless project coordination. Choose a company with an inventory tracking system in place to ensure every item is accounted for at the conclusion of the move. In addition, consider whether the professional mover offers IT support to assist in the breakdown and setup of client IT equipment and telecom systems, and will communicate with the destination site’s vendors to ensure communications, network and internet setup is completed. The goal is to have your business up and running as quickly as possible – after all, time is money! A professional commercial moving company with experience operating under tight deadlines and demonstrated efficiency and thoroughness can reduce delays and financial strain to your business during relocation efforts.
