Your company has decided to move. All of a sudden, there are dozens of things on your to-do list. Near the top, though, is finding a commercial moving company to help with your corporate move. Unless you’re familiar with the process, though, this can seem like an intimidating step. Luckily, it’s easy to find a commercial moving company that streamlines your move and helps you settle into your new space as easily as possible. In this post, we’ll share our top tips for hiring a commercial moving company you can trust, and finding someone to help with your corporate move. Let’s dive in. Step One: Do Your Research When it comes to professional movers, you have a lot of choices. The first step to narrowing them down is to do your research. We recommend making a list of commercial moving companies you’re interested in and researching the service quality provided by each. Here are a few things to pay attention to: Online reviews. Look at the company’s website and Facebook page. We also recommend looking at online reviews in places like Yelp. Service offerings. Make sure the company offers the services you need by consulting their service offerings. Contact the company and view their website to be sure they offer things like corporate storage, high-value item moving, logistics, and long-distance moves. Background. Look into the company’s background. Pay special attention to the number of years they’ve been in business, their industry certifications, and whether or not the company is locally owned and operated. Once you’ve found a few moving companies you like, make a list of them and request a quote from each. Step Two: Verify the Availability of Your Moving Date You’ve probably already chosen a moving date. Before you can hire a moving company to help you, though, you need to make sure they have that date available in their books. You’ll have the best success with this if you start planning your move in advance. With about 2-3 months of lead time, most moving companies should be able to accommodate your chosen date. Keep in mind, though, that the books do fill up a little faster during peak seasons like summer. Step Three: Secure the Quote By now, you should have a good idea of which moving company you want to work with. The next step, then, is to secure the quote from the said moving company. Most teams will have you sign a moving contract that locks in the date, prices, and services offered. If you have any questions about the process, this is a great time to communicate your concerns to the moving team. Your Commercial Moving Company Company Should be a Trusted Partner You have a lot to think about as you relocate offices. The last thing you want to worry about is whether or not you can trust your commercial moving company. Because of this, we always recommend finding a commercial moving company that you feel comfortable with. In addition to offering the services you need, the company should be easy to communicate with, and the moving experts should be professional and accommodating. Finding a company like this helps you avoid problematic moving bottlenecks and ensures a long, happy partnership.
