How to Choose the Right Commercial Movers for Your Business Relocation Needs

When it comes to relocating your business, nothing beats experienced commercial movers. They can provide you with a comprehensive suite of services that simplifies the entire relocation process and ensures your company’s operational downtime is minimal. These movers can provide a wide variety of services such as packing, labeling, furniture disassembly and reassembly, storage, installation, and more. They also assist with logistics, including coordinating with building management and acquiring any necessary permits or parking permissions. Additionally, they can help with project planning, identifying and locating equipment and coordinating with IT to ensure all data is properly moved over to the new location.

Hiring a professional moving service can make the difference between an efficient move and a disaster. Choosing the right one requires research and careful evaluation of several different factors. These include:

Reputation: Ask for referrals and speak with former clients about their experiences. Find out if they were happy with the moving services, how fast their queries were answered, whether they had any hidden fees or costs, and how quickly any damage claims were resolved. Licensing: Look for a USDOT license, proof of insurance, and a certificate of workers’ compensation. In addition, reputable movers should be members of a professional moving organization and have an excellent Better Business Bureau rating.

Pricing: Get an in-person quote and avoid ballpark estimates. The size of your office, type of furniture and equipment, and any special items will factor into the estimate. You may be able to get a better deal on hourly rates if you hire a moving company that has been around for awhile.

Insurance: Ensure that the commercial movers you are considering have adequate general liability and workman’s compensation coverage. Also, ask if they have a non-binding estimate in your contract and how much they require payment before the move.

Specialized Equipment: Commercial movers are familiar with the unique requirements for relocating various types of equipment, such as servers, computers, and other technology. They know how to protect these delicate components from damage during transport, which can be challenging for non-professional movers.

Dedicated Move Manager: Commercial moving companies often assign a move manager to oversee the entire relocation process. This individual can be a valuable resource when it comes to ensuring the success of your move, as they can create a schedule and checklist that helps to ensure that every detail is covered and nothing gets overlooked.
