Whatever the reason is – expanding a business or downsizing it, relocation can be a complex task. Yet, you’ve got to start somewhere. The first step is to thoroughly plan and prepare everything before the commercial moving services arrive with their trucks. Here’s how to go about things.
- Day of the move: The time is important because traffic volume may cause delays for the mover’s trucks. The actual time may also be an issue because you might need to reserve an elevator. If there’s only one in the building, you may only be able to reserve it during the night, in which case, it may be a better idea to book the move for a Saturday.
- Do you have special needs? Do you need furniture to be disassembled and reassembled? Do you need cubicles moved? All this will determine the duration of the move and the number of trucks required. Discuss these issues with the commercial moving services.
- How will you pack? Professional movers may provide you with packing supplies, or they may pack for you. How do you want your business documentation and files packed? Then, there’s all your office technology – printers, computers, etc. If possible, these items should be transported in their original packing. If that’s not possible, ask the movers for appropriate packing to prevent the risk of damaging your electronic equipment.
- Meet with someone from the moving company before moving day to familiarize them with your final requirements.
