Book Relocation Services Early and Plan for a Successful Move of your Office
If the thought of moving home with the help of the family strikes fear and trembling into your heart, imagine how you will feel as a big office relocation nears. Moving office can be as difficult or as easy as you plan for it to be. The trick is to plan properly and to make use of a company offering office relocation services that has a great reputation and track record in the industry.
You might take a chance every now and then when moving small personal items by hiring casual labourers to do the heavy lifting, but this will only create problems if you do the same when moving corporate office contents. First of all, an untrained individual will have no concept of the value of the items that they are moving and, secondly, won’t have the know-how to cautiously and safely move awkwardly sized or heavy objects. Imagine seeing an expensive piece of artwork being balanced precariously on the corner of a sharp object. Even if it does not tear or crash to its demise, it can still be scratched and scraped (or stretched if it is made of canvas). The value of the object will instantly decline and what’s worse is that you won’t have any professional insurance in place to cover the damages. All professional office relocation services should come with basic insurance cover attached.
If the move is an extensive one, a great deal of planning will need to go into it. In addition to remembering to do basic things, like the change of address or letting your customers know of your move, there are other things regarding the physical move that will need your time and attention. When planning a move, it is important to have a close look at the new premises so that you can strategise. If you have access to the new premises, take your chosen moving company to take a look at it. They should also visit your existing premises so that they can get a better idea of what needs to be moved and what sort of workforce will be required on the day. It is also a good time to bring heavy, awkward or highly valuable/sensitive items to their attention. Take the time to make a note of these items at the same time so that you can create an inventory of items to be moved.
Any company offering professional office relocation services should have space planning and layout experts available to consult with you and your interior designer. You will be surprised at just how much more ergonomic your workspace can be when a fresh set of eyes and a bit of experience is applied. Expecting your regular staff members to handle all of the layout and set up tasks can negatively impact on productivity and morale. Your moving company should also assist you with unpacking boxes, placing furniture and assembling office furniture on the other side. Any relocation company that intends to simply pick up and drop off without assisting with the finishing touches is probably not a company with your interests and excellent customer services as priorities.
