7 Reasons you should hire professional Office Removals
One of the most critical stages of your relocation is the physical aspect of moving your office belongings from A to B. This is usually the stage of the moving process that often gets judged too, which gives you all the more reason to plan efficiently and avoid being tempted to handle this part of the move yourself. There are certainly many reasons for you to hire a professional office removals company, here are just a few that we wanted to share.
1. Assistance and Support
An Office Removals company handles relocations (in all shapes and sizes!) on a daily basis and it’s invaluable to have them on board your relocation team to ensure things run smoothly. An office removals company is usually involved in the run up to the move, not just the move day itself, and will assist with a packing schedule, systematic colour-coding of boxes as well as arranging sufficient access of both locations so that the move day runs like clockwork.
2. Minimum disruption
An office relocation can be a major disruption for businesses, both before and after the move. One of the biggest advantages of working with an office removals company is that your business will be back to normality as quickly as possible after the move and will not suffer any downtime.
3. Save Time
Your move won’t take as long when you hire a professional removals company. Typically the move can be completed within a day, or even several hours depending on the size of your business.
4. Help with Clearance
Many companies need assistance clearing out rubbish when they move to avoid taking any unwanted items of redundant furniture or equipment with them to the new office. Removals Company can usually help with an office clearance and ensure items are properly recycled and disposed of before the move so as not to interfere with the move day itself.
5. Help with IT
One of the more complex tasks of an office relocation is moving your IT and phone equipment to the new office. If your IT is down when you get to the new office, even for a few hours, it can negatively impact any project deadlines you may need to meet. An office removals company can decommission any computers, set them up and test them at the new location so that they are working by the time staff arrive.
6. Health & Safety
If you are considering carrying out the removals yourself by hiring a van, you need to seriously consider the impact of any injuries to you and your staff whilst hoisting furniture in and out of the van. More importantly, your staff may not be adequately insured to carry out this task. When you hire a properly licensed office removals company, you don’t have to worry, and you can maintain productivity right up to the move day itself.
7. A peaceful night’s sleep!
You can rest peacefully the night before moving day knowing that the move is in safe and capable hands.
