Office relocation is a responsible event so it is better to approach to it with the utmost responsibility. And of course, it isn’t cheap. After all, when you move your office or enterprise, it stops operation for some time period that means money loosing for the owner. It is reasonable to use the services of moving companies dealing with apartment or office relocations to protect yourself from unnecessary expenses and losses. At present time, such services are provided by many companies. There is a huge proposal of such services on the Internet and in newspapers.
Let’s consider features of office relocation to understand what kind of services you need to get from the moving company. First of all, you need to move various important papers, tax accounts, documents that are difficult to recover without loss and damage. Perhaps, the single lost paper during the move will cause essential losses and the company will go bankrupt. Therefore, careful attitude with papers, a separate package for each stack, quality packing materials are required from the moving company. It is reasonable to mark each package with papers, give them a serial number and make a list of packs in order to be confident that all the papers were moved from point “A” to point “B”. Then office equipment, especially computers and laptops with valuable accounting information or customer base should be properly packed. The loss of such information can cause irreparable losses for the company. It is better to copy all important databases before start moving and to entrust packaging and transportation to professional movers. Improperly packed office equipment like printers, scanners and phones can be damaged so you have to replace them and purchase new equipment that means additional expenses. Transportation of furniture and various office equipment should be performed by experienced people who know how to pack, move and place objects in a truck, what kind of vehicle to choose.
As it was mentioned before office temporary downtime results in essential losses. The less time is needed for relocation – the less money you lose. The experienced movers carry out small office relocation within one day with a full packing /unpacking and furniture placing. Transportation of heavy furniture items and safes can greatly increase the time needed for moving if you do not use the services of professional movers. They have special rigging tools for heavy items loading at their disposal to minimize time for loading.
Packing of office employees personal belongings is also very important. An experienced moving company provides boxes for each employee in advance, so the staff can quickly pack personal items on their own and not mix them. Office employees can quickly begin to fulfill their duties in new office and not to waste time on their personal belongings moving. I hope that these recommendations will save you from unnecessary costs during office relocation.
