Why Choose a Removal Company
Hiring a company to handle all of your business relocation is the best decision you can make. Choosing the right company will save you money, and will make the entire process easier and quicker. Commercial moving companies have all the required equipment and tools to handle the move without an issue and have the knowledge to deal even with the most complex items and move them without causing damage. A reputable business relocation services provider offer insurance to protect your goods in transit which mean you can be complete peace of mind knowing all of your belongings will arrive at the new location safely.
Work Out a Time
If you want everything to go according to your plan, once you find the moving company you need to book your move at least six months in advance. Talk with the manager or another responsible person from the company about your needs. Give them a clear picture whether you want a complete packing service, part packing or you want to pack things yourself but you need some of their packing materials. Ask about the long or short term storage. This is an important consideration especially if your business is downsizing but you still want to keep some of the things.
Choose a Suitable Date
Choosing the right period for relocating your business is also important. August is considered as one of the best months for moving since most of the people are away on holiday. The period around the Christmas and New Year can also be a good time for relocation but here you need to consider the weather conditions as well. Since your offices will not operate for a couple of days, prepare yourself for homework. Your business does not really need to stop, so use tablets and smartphones to continue managing the things.
The New Location
Last but not least make a good plan for your new premises. Will it be open plan, separate offices, with cubicles, will you need a kitchen or storage rooms, parking facilities or restrooms? Do not forget to think about your disabled employees (of course, if there are any) and ensure them premises with adequate accessibility. All these things are important and will have a huge impact on the productivity.
