From filing cabinets to display cases, there are a number of heavy items to transport during a move from one commercial space to another. If you're getting ready to bid farewell to an old office, studio, or store, and you could use a little help with the moving process, then be sure to speak with the experienced team at Men on the Move about our commercial moving services. Here is a helpful guide to moving your small business to a new location:
Create a Timeline
The first thing to do once you've found a new location for your business is to set a practical timeline for the move. Within this timeframe, set a date and time for important tasks like purchasing boxes, packing, transporting items with help from movers, and unpacking items. Since the moving process can require the business to take a day or two off, you should also consider keeping clients up to date on your timeline.
Choose a Dependable Moving Company
The next step to take after developing a basic timeline is to contact a moving company to assist you with the move. The most important qualities to look for in movers are reliability, efficiency, cost, and experience. Here at Men on the Move, we're proud to possess all of the traits you are looking for in a professional moving company, and we can provide you with countless references from satisfied clients who would recommend our moving services.
Purge Unwanted Items
One of the easiest ways to make the moving process smoother is to go through your office or commercial space and eliminate items and furnishings that you no longer need. Once you've collected old or unwanted items, give them a new home by donating them to a local charity. If you have some items you'd like to keep but prefer not to have in the office, have your movers take them to a self-storage facility where they will be safe and secure until you can find use for them again.
