Plan moving services in advance – emergency moves do happen
As the saying goes, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Although you’re comfortable in your current office and have no intention of moving in the near future, having emergency moving services planned in advantage will give you peace of mind. Life is unpredictable and there is a vast array of situations that could result in you needing emergency moving services and you’ll certainly want to be prepared ahead of time.
There’s no better time to talk about the risk of a natural disaster forcing you to move than now. From forest fires in California to tsunamis in Indonesia, hurricanes in Japan and beastly hurricanes in Florida, there’s no denying that natural disasters can arise at any time. Not only that but they can completely change your plan in terms of where you intend on living.
Now, that’s not to say that you should avoid areas prone to natural disasters but you will certainly want to put some emergency moving services into play. Consider storing your most prized possessions in a storage unit, such as important employee information, irreplaceable documents, legal papers, etc. You likely don’t access your filing cabinet very often or at the very least, the majority of the content within it, so consider moving it out to storage to ensure it remains safe.
Another alternative is to have emergency moving services put in place to ensure that your business can be transported to another area if need be. Perhaps you have another business location, warehouse or even storage in another city. These are all great options to have put in place in the case of an emergency.
Business Repairs and Renovations
You’ve decided to give your employees a couple of days off to get some business repairs and renovations done. Great idea! However, you still need to figure out what you’re going to do with all of the office equipment. Shuffling all of the desks to the side of one room is certain to leave your employees’ workstations disarray and that’s not to mention all the dust and debris that will remain on the surface after the renovations are done. Add in the fact that doing renovations in an office or building where furniture remains is not only a possible safety hazard but it could also put your business data at risk.
A great alternative is to rent a storage unit and to hire full-service moving solutions to clear out the space for the duration of the renovation, whether it’s to a storage unit or other location. Bekins Moving Solutions will do all the hard work for you – from the disassembly of office furniture to the loading, transportation, and storage, as well as the transportation back to your office, unloading, and reassembly of office furniture. It’s a one-step solution which will certainly come in handy if an emergency was to occur.
There are few things worse than no-show movers when your lease is up and your business packed with nowhere to go. So, the first rule is to make sure you do your research prior to hiring any moving company to make sure that you will not be at risk of this easy-to-avoid emergency. If it’s too late and you’re concerned about the moving company you hired, have a plan B put in place by renting a storage unit. It’s there if you need it.
Some situations may feel out of your control, such as being evicted from your office space for whatever reason. However, by having emergency moving services put in place, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that regardless of what happens on-location, all of your hard work (and business) will have a safety plan
Depending on your location, you may be at a higher risk of needed emergency moving services. Create a plan with your family as to what you’ll do in the case of an emergency, and perhaps consider setting up a storage unit today to keep your prized possession safe at all times.Back to all blogs
