The commercial moving process tends to be more complicated compared to arranging a residential relocation. If you are a business owner who will be moving soon, you will likely benefit from hiring a moving company to help with the transition.
The team at 495 Movers Inc. can help you with the planning and organization of an office move, business relocation, or even employee relocations for work. We'll also arrange storage, packing, and a la carte services for our clients to make the process of moving easier to manage. Of course, we have also put together a few suggestions to help companies get started with planning for their moves today.
Create an FF&E List
The Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment list is used by hotels, restaurants, and businesses with lots of assets to keep track of everything. You may already have a similar inventory put together with itemized assets that you can use to build the FF&E list. This is used as a checklist to ensure all of the company assets are packed and loaded, and later on, unloaded.
Develop a Move Timeline
One of our coordinators will assist with the creation of a schedule as part of our commercial moving services. We'll pick convenient times for packing, even after hours, and arrange the moving day for you. We can also arrange temporary storage in a nearby facility to keep assets in as they are packed up.
Keep Your Team Informed
Assign someone in the office to serve as a project manager for the move and make sure this person is in the loop on every decision. They can also send out memos to the rest of the team with instructions, important dates, and field any questions for you.
Save Your Contacts
Start tracking the contact information of those involved in the commercial moving process and share it with others. This can include your project manager, move coordinator, storage company, and any equipment suppliers.
Above all, pick the right moving company to do the hard work of packing, loading, and transporting your assets. Without the support of professionals your commercial relocation can quickly become overwhelming. 495 Movers Inc. can have a skilled move coordinator visit your office to provide a free consultation right away.
