Moving or relocating your office is not something to take lightly. A move can be a trying procedure for your office, affecting your infrastructure, organization, or ability to communicate with your customers, so it’s important to get the right help. Before you hire a corporate mover, make sure to ask the following questions:
Do you have full-time employees?
Be wary of companies that do not have full-time employees, as they may not be trustworthy or trained properly. Ask the company if they have a high rate of employee turnover.
Do you train your movers and drivers?
Make sure your moving company has training guidelines for their employees. They will be handling expensive office furniture and equipment, so you want to make sure they know what they’re doing.
Do you have worker’s compensation for your employees?
This is a very important question, because you don’t want to be liable for any accidents or injuries that may occur during the move.
How do you charge?
Does the company charge by the hour or by the piece? Do they have any additional fees? Make sure you know what you are paying upfront so you do not get stuck with a costly bill.
Is furniture and equipment insured during the move?
If there is an accident or theft during the move, you want to make sure your items are insured. Make sure you know exactly what is covered.
Do you have any suggestions to make the move easier or more successful?
A moving company that cares about its customers will provide the best service possible and make the move go smoothly. Ask them for their advice to see what they recommend.
