When you begin the process of commercial moving, you’ll find that there are quite a few things to take care of. Not only will you need to find quality professional assistance, but you will also need to prepare your employees and customers for the impending change. You’ll have to organize your business, because there will be a time when things are temporarily offline. There is so much to take care of that it’s easy to forget the little things, which is why this commercial moving checklist will help keep you on track. This commercial moving checklist has been put together by the expert commercial relocation specialists at Acclaimed Office Movers, who have years of experience handling all manner of commercial moves, and who understand how to simplify the process.
The Commercial Moving Checklist
Two or three months prior to the move--
- Set a moving date in stone
Choose a time when traffic will be light, and the move will be able to enjoy maximum efficiency.
- Gather moving quotes from multiple companies
Give yourself a chance to compare and contrast the various services offered.
- Research all of the companies you’ve gotten moving quotes from
This will verify whether the companies you’re looking at are as reputable as they advertise.
Six weeks prior to the move—
- Choose a moving company
Make sure you choose a fully licensed and insured commercial mover, who has the skills and equipment necessary to complete your move.
- Begin the process of discarding items that will not be making the move
Gently used office and commercial goods can be donated to a local church or charitable organization.
- Gather supplies and materials
Save on total costs by gathering tape, boxes, moving blankets, shrink wrap and other packing materials yourself.
One month prior to the move—
- Notify employees and customers of the impending move
This is the time to prepare the people in your company for the transition, and to prepare any customers as well.
- Begin the packing process
If you’re handling the packing yourself, using your own labor force, now would be the time to begin the process.
- Notify utilities and services companies about the change
You will need to have mail, internet services, and other services transferred to your new address prior to the move. This will make it easy to get your business quickly up and running in the new local.
Two weeks prior to the move—
- Confirm your moving date with the moving company
You want to ensure that your movers will arrive as scheduled, so confirm the move with the company today.
- Notify your building of the transition, and gather any necessary paperwork
Some buildings require moving permits and insurance, so be sure to get those items in order now.
- Organize a space for the moving truck as near to the building as possible
This will save you on labor costs and possible additional charges that come with long carries. By doing this now, there will be no surprises on moving day.
- Make sure that the moving company
gives you your state-mandated packet outlining the different aspects of the moving industry. This information will help guide you through moving day, and must be presented to you.
- Step back and let the moving company
help your business transition into the future. As long as you’ve chosen a good company, the process will be efficient and effective.
