How to Save Money on a Quote for Corporate Relocations
Are you worried about the cost of your upcoming office move? Not happy with the final amount on your quote for corporate relocations? Moving offices can be expensive, but there are a few things you can do to reduce your office relocation quote. The idea of “time is money” is true in every industry. With the right relocation team on your side, your business can experience minimal downtown and save on those pesky extra moving costs that tend to crop up along the way.
Below are just a few ways in which to ensure that your quote for corporate relocations is in line with what you can afford:
Book Your Office Movers Long in Advance and Pick the Right Time of the Week
Experts in the industry advise that companies choose to do the bulk of their move over the weekend. This means that the business doesn’t have to be running as usual for the duration of the move. Unfortunately, most movers are booked up over the weekends for this very reason. If you book a few months in advance though, you will benefit from being able to book over a weekend and you might get a better price from the moving company. If you don’t specifically need to book your move over a weekend, you could actually save money by booking your move midweek and mid-month. Most companies need to move at the very end or very beginning of a month, so if you are flexible with your times, mid-month moves can save money!
Create a Thorough List of Items to Be Moved
Often, when a business forgets to include items of furniture on the move list, the removal company needs to pay staff for extra time spent on the move, provide additional packing materials, and spend more money on fuel. This means that leaving items off your list can result in additional costs for you to cover. Make sure that you provide your moving team with an exhaustive list of each and every item that needs to be moved.
Get Rid of Old, Outdated, or Unnecessary Items
Why pay to transport items to your new premises if they need to be replaced or thrown away? Be meticulous about going through office cupboards, furniture collections, and equipment. Throw away any items that are no longer of use to the business. This will ensure that your quote for a corporate relocation only includes absolutely essential items and you are not paying a cent more than you need to. Some of the items might be old and outdated, but you can still recoup some costs by selling them. If you can make some money back for the business in this way, you should do so!
