Moving advice for small businesses

When you are moving your office to a totally new location, time and money can be saved by planning the relocation in the proper manner.  The process of packing and unpacking can take up a lot of time, and ongoing inefficiency can result from placing critical support equipment haphazardly within your new space.  The good news, however, is that an office move does not have to result in many days of disruption.

One important tip when it comes to hiring the services of a professional office moving company is to get on-site estimates rather than online quotes.  A moving company needs to have a thorough picture of all the items that will need to be moved, and a detailed on-site inventory should be taken very early in the process.  Estimates that are made without inspections and do not factor in large or cumbersome items that may need special moving equipment could end up being some way off the mark.

You also need to make sure that you pay attention to the experts.  Listen to their advice when they make an inspection and talk to them about procedures and options for the relocation of office equipment, artwork, and any other expensive or delicate items.

The key to a swift office move is to embrace efficiency.  You should take advantage of any available tools that can help to streamline your move, such as using plastic totes and time-saving carts instead of the standard cardboard boxes.
