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.

How Do I Get Ready for My Office Move?

If you plan on moving your business to another office location, or to another state, there are a couple of things you need to prepare for. First, you should figure out the best plan for packing, because it is a rather large task of moving your company office and keeping track of all the supplies and furniture. Just like anything, preparation will make all the difference, so make sure you have a solid moving plan before you decide to take action.

What Are My First Steps for Preparing My Office Move?

  • Create a moving plan: The first, and most important, step is to create a moving plan. Make a timeline that will allow for the different stages of the move. Depending on the size of your office and how many people are on your moving team, you will need from three months to eight months of preparation, so the earlier you start the process the better. Collect all the necessary information on the new office space, such as floor layouts and any potential issues with the new space.
  • Gather your team: Someone from each department or division should be a member of your moving team, and for smaller companies it may mean all employees are involved.
  • Packing: employees typically pack their own desks but you need to identify who will be packing common areas. Will this be handled by employees or the moving company? Make sure everyone knows how things should be labeled for easy placement in the new facility.
  • Servers/Computers & Phones: Have a specific person coordinating this effort and make a plan for cutting the equipment over. Are you re-using the same equipment or purchasing new? Make sure you’ve got all your vendors lined up and on the same page with your schedule. Your company will want to have the least amount of downtime.
  • Schedule a few meetings during the planning process. Meet up with your team as well as outside vendors to ensure everyone knows their assigned tasks and major milestone dates.
