Making the decision to move to new premises can open up a world of possibilities for your company. It might allow for expansion, targeting new markets, more efficient working arrangements for employees and a whole hole of other benefits.
It will also involve planning to ensure that the down time for the business is minimised, that the office equipment, stock and specialist machinery etc is moved safely and with zero defect. The best way to avoid these potential pitfalls is to appoint a professional moving company with expertise in office removals.
How do you find the best removal company to perform the move? What are the hallmarks of a sound remover?
Here’s a few points you may like to consider when researching potential companies to carry out the move.
Make sure they’re accredited- A good remover should be a member of the British Association of Removers, to ensure that they meet industry standards and are financially protected, in the unlikely event that something goes wrong with the move.
Don’t always go for the cheapest- We all know that you will only ever get what you pay for and what may seem a better option in the short term, may cause you more problems in the long term. If you’re obtaining more than one quote, ensure you compare like for like services.
The resources- Ask them key questions- can they relocate IT equipment and carry out a full server relocation? Are their crews trained in packing? Can they supply you with professional grade packing materials for you to pack yourself? How about storage? If you need some of your office equipment to go into storage for a while, your remover should be able to arrange either containerised or self access storage for as long as you need.
Do they have a robust CSR strategy? Are they doing their bit for the local community and adhering to running their processes in an environmentally friendly way?
