If you’re ever moved, you know that it can be a long, arduous process that often leaves your life in disarray for a while. For many businesses looking to relocate their offices, this is simply not an option. Business relocation needs to be as quick and seamless as possible so that you and your employees can get back to business as usual – the more efficient the move, the less money you lose. The average workforce of any office is probably not prepared to execute such a complicated relocation in a short period. This is why it’s important to outsource to professionals. Before choosing a commercial moving company, Denver business owners should ask the following questions.
Do You Specialize in Office Moves?
The answer should be yes. You want to work with a commercial moving company that is experienced moving businesses of all types, including offices, laboratories, hotels, schools, etc. Residential movers will simply not have the necessary experience. It’s also important to ask if the company is certified by IOMI (International Office Moving Institute). Make sure to ask if the company has full-time employees, as companies that hire part-time movers often don’t screen them thoroughly. An experienced company will also be trained in minimizing disruptions.
How Will My Spaces Be Protected?
A good company will take care to protect critical areas like carpets, floors, woodwork, doors, door jambs, and elevators. If you work with an IOMI certified mover, they should also know the protocol for protecting computers, servers, and other IT equipment. They should even be prepared to move artwork and other delicate items. A good mover will more than likely offer you a computerized tracking system so you can ensure your assets’ safety and accountability.
Do You Offer Storage?
Offering storage is key, especially if there is some time in between your Move-in and move-out dates. Make sure to ask to see these facilities in person, or check to see if the company’s site offers a virtual tour. You should also ask if documents and records can be stored, and if you’ll be able to access them easily.
What About the Things I Don’t Want to Move?
Exceptional Denver movers should offer additional services like shredding and recycling of old papers and purge services for the old, unwanted items you don’t want to take with you.
