Choosing the Right Office Movers

A relocation is a complex process for an office of any size and significance. If you’re relocating to another section of the building, you still have to fight with coworkers and lift heavy boxes the whole way through. Save the time and effort of moving when you hire relocation services. Find the right office movers to plan, pack and move an office according to your terms.

Check the Experience

Find an office moving company that has helped clients in your line of business. Read customer reviews to see if they’ve worked with companies like yours.

Review the Services

Match the company’s services to your specific moving needs. Avoid looking for a long list of services because you may only need a few. Look for expedited services if you expect a last-minute move, and look for an account manager to help with a large, long-distance move.

Request Moving Quotes

A lot of people don’t consider the task of quoting a move. Instead, they look at general price ranges on the mover’s website and guess how much their move will cost. Every move is different in regards to the moving distance, the amount of weight and the number of items being moved. Even after the quote is made, the costs are not final. Some moves include unexpected charges for excess weight or last-minute packing. During the move, you could run into several problems like lost items or route diversions.

Everyone with a similar moving situation gets a different quote. The quote helps you to realize that moving is more expensive or more affordable than you thought. Overall, find a company that is honest and upfront about their service costs.

Many business owners come up with many excuses as to why they don’t use office movers. They claim that they don’t want to deal with incompetent movers; however, they hire inexperienced employees to handle the move. They think that finding a mover is time-consuming, but they don’t realize that office movers provide expedited services. No matter what type of office move it is, there are companies willing to ease the burden on your office workers.

Office Move Tips – Part 2

Office MovesYou will want as little downtime and disruption to your business when doing your office move. There are many things to coordinate for an office move and planning ahead will help ensure minimum downtime. Here are five tips on how to increase efficiency and decrease anxiety before moving day.

  1. PROJECT MANAGER – Designate a key person to oversee the entire move project in close collaboration with the moving company. You may want to assign sub-managers for specific areas: i.e. phones, new office furniture/equipment, computers. .
  2. PLAN & MEASURE – Once work areas and offices have been assigned, draw up a basic floor plan. If there is a blue print of the building that is a good place to start. Is your current furniture going to fit in the new office space? Adjustments are easier when still on paper. It can pay off to hire a professional office systems analyst, who can help plan your new space to maximize efficiency and reduce waste especially for larger projects.
  3. NUMBERING SYSTEM – Assign a number to each employee, room or area in the building and tag everything to match. A good way to do this is to start at the front of the building with the receptionist being #1 and work your way around assigning numbers. Have employees box up and tag their own items before moving day. Visibly coded furniture and equipment moves much faster, don’t forget to label everything including the garbage cans. At the new office space you should put a number on the outside of every office and room so the movers will know which room it is at a glance.
  4. PACKING – Filing cabinets:  fire proof cabinets should be emptied, two-drawer cabinets can stay full, four/five drawer files empty the top two drawers. Small items are easily handled in baggies, or wrapped in newsprint and packed in boxes. Take anything personal home until after the move. Movers aren’t responsible for personal items. Desks: all drawers need to be packed. Bookcases: all items must be removed from shelves prior to moving day. Computers: back up your hard drive shut down and unhook any cables to printers or other external equipment including keyboard and pack in a box.
  5. OTHER CONSIDERATIONS – Rent a dumpster, or inquire into your moving company’s ability to haul garbage and/or unwanted furniture away. Clearly mark any items that you are NOT moving to avoid confusion. Reputable moving companies are often able to dispose of waste in an environmentally conscious way, and have contacts in the recycling world. Ask your mover if they will take care of trash and recycling.
