Why you need a good office removals company and how to choose one
Published on Tuesday, 08 May 2012
There often comes a time when your business needs expansion or relocation due to different circumstances. Whether you have hired too many employees or your rooms are too packed with documentation, relocation sometimes is inevitable. Moving is not only a stressful time for the employer but also for the employees. Using the service of an office removals company is a must these days - it shows your consideration to your business and workers. Making people pack, carry and load is simply not acceptable. An employee will have enough stress coping with the change of workplace and any potential changes in his transport habits, to be able to stress over the moving process too. This is one of the biggest benefits of hiring a professional company - less stress for you and your team. Stress is bad for business and stays long after the relocation. Hiring professionals can be done with one phone call - fast and easy. You can agree on the fee and leave the rest to the removals company. Trained movers know how to pack your belongings and large furniture and efficiently deliver it to the new place without causing damage, while you focus on your business. One of the reasons to use professional help is the guaranteed safety - if you try doing things yourself you can easily injure yourself or break something. You will also save lots of time if you trust a removals company. All the money you spend on the removal is reasonably spent money.
There are a few tips to follow in order to choose a reputable removals company. The most cliché of these tips is the regular Google search. This is the fastest way to browse local companies and compare prices. Read clients' reviews - this will give you an idea of how good the company actually is. Most removals company's websites offer quotes, which can help you see how much the service will cost you. Don't risk hiring a company which reputation is bad - these are the people who have to deal with your files, documentation and belongings - your whole business space. If you find it difficult to choose, talk to other business owners in the building, especially to the recently moved in. A mouth to mouth recommendation is usually the best one. After you have chosen a company or a few ones call for a consultation. Good companies offer consultations, so if they don't they are probably scammers and you can move on to your next choice. Once you have chosen the company you're going to use, choose the best way for the packing and moving. It's better to ask your employees to gather their personal belongings from their desks and pack them in boxes or just bring them to the new place. If you cannot fully trust the movers pack everything properly and label the boxes ready for moving. This is a way to make sure all your office's belongings are arranged in boxes and will make it easier to unpack. Even if you hire the best removals company you still need to be involved in the process and make sure everything is organized and goes by plan. Do not involve too many of your employees - after all this additional work is not part of their job description. It is good to have a move manager present during the whole move - communication is vital so if you need a fast move he/she is the person to discuss this with. Follow these tips for an efficient and smooth move.
