There are numerous ways to move office and by choosing the best way for you will undoubtedly leave you unstressed and not too out of pocket. Depending on the size of your office and the contents within it, you may find that by employing a professional office removal company you can be rest assured that the move will be a smooth one with no mishaps or breakages.
It may also be possible to embark on the work by yourself and where possible ask for some assistance from others. There are however several good reasons to hire the specialists to do the move for you, for example there is one main obvious reason: they are experts in their field and have done this many times before. They will know exactly how to pack your property safely to avoid damage.
Most if not all companies will offer an insurance to protect your property in the unlikely event of there being damage or loss of it. Depending on the nature of your own business you might have sensitive or confidential items which will need to be moved or disposed of in a professional manner. An example of this is when there are toxic chemicals or waste involved which will need to be moved very carefully, and in many instances legally. Getting good recommendations is certainly one of the best ways to find a reliable company with a sound reputation.
Local newspapers will have adverts of companies who offer office removals. You can call them and ask for names of previous clients who have used them for office moving. The older more established companies usually prove to be the best and most trustworthy.
Decide when you would like the move to take place. Many people prefer to move on a weekend so that there will be no disruption to the normal office working hours. This way the move could commence on a Friday immediately after the office closes for the weekend. It may be worth considering that some companies will add an additional charge if they have stairs to use in order to move your contents. There may also be an extra cost if they will be required to use a lift to complete the work.It’s helpful to make sure to keep your staff members informed about the move and kindly asking them to keep everywhere tidy and clutter free.
Ask them also to remove any items that will not need to be moved. Doing this can save precious time and money, and lead to a much easier move. Prior to the move you should make use of your staff by giving them all a task to assist in moving. This could consist of anything from cleaning to dismantling office furniture or just gathering items in preparation for the move. Do not expect them to lift heavy items in case of injury.Before the move begins you should do a stock take to list in detail every item that will be moved. This is a good time to get rid of all those things that you no longer need.
There is no point paying to move items that are eventually to be scrapped at the new office. If something not needed, simply discard it.It’s important that you visit your new office premises before moving your belongings to it. You can then organize and decide where you will be placing each item that you are bringing from your old office. This will reduce the moving time and the office will be up and running in the shortest possible time with very little interruption. Plan ahead and don’t rush anything and your office removal should be an easy one.
