Is your business planning an office relocation? If so, it’s essential to find an office moving company with the right qualities to help ensure that the process will go smoothly. Knowing which qualities to look for can help you be prepared for the vetting process when you’re looking for a moving company.
Below, we’ve listed four of the essential characteristics to be on the watch for when trying to hire a moving company that’s right for your upcoming commercial relocation.
1. Reliability and Good Reputation
Seek a well-established company with a good reputation in your community. Long-standing businesses have the experience required to avoid problems that can arise during the moving process. And, if a problem does occur during the move, a well-established company with good management will know how to handle it appropriately. How can you tell if a company is reliable with a good reputation? Call their references. The company you choose should have many references to offer, going back more than just a few years. When you contact the references, ask them questions such as:
- When did this moving company perform services for you?
- Would you recommend this moving company to others?
- Would you use this moving company again yourself?
- What were this moving company’s strengths?
- Did you encounter any problems during the moving process? If so, how did this moving company handle those problems?
2. Transparent Billing Practices
It’s so essential to hire a company with transparent billing practices. Read the bid from the moving company and ask any questions that you may have about the bill before scheduling that company to perform your move. When you’re comparing multiple bids to each other, remember that the lowest-cost moving company is not necessarily the best moving company for your job. Hire a moving company that will provide the best value for the amount that you’re paying.
3. Track Record for Success
Ask the moving company about their previous moves, including how long they’ve been in business and what they do to help ensure that each move is a success. The person you’re speaking with should list things about their company that make them unique. If you’re not satisfied with the answer to your questions, keep looking for another moving company. Hire a company that can discuss what makes them worth hiring over the competition.
You’re too busy managing a business and a team to worry about performing all the packing and moving all the furniture.
Find out if the commercial moving company will provide dismantling and set-up services and make sure that they will carefully transport your computers and other sensitive equipment.
It’s vitally important to hire a full-service moving company that can take some weight off your shoulders ensure that professionals will handle your move.
When you’re inquiring about their full-service moving services, ask them how long they think it will take to pack and unpack your items, whether you’ll need someone from your office on hand to keep the process moving. Having this information upfront can help ensure that your move will go as expected.
