Choosing the right Office Removals Company
Selecting the right office removals company to undertake the most crucial part of your office relocation requires careful research. In fact choosing the right office removals company can be the key for a successful and stress-free office move.
Always try to get at least 3 office removal quotes from your local area. These office removals companies should have experience in office removals so they are used to handling specialist technical equipment, office furniture and are also experienced in making sure that all equipment and furniture is re-assembled, tested and working on that first morning in your new office without any disruption to business operations.
The office removals company will usually send a representative to your office to consider what needs to be packed and moved in order to give you an accurate quotation. This meeting will enable you to get a feel for the office removals company and also give you a chance to ask them any questions on your Office Removals Checklist and discuss any special requirements. An important part of this meeting will be to discuss access to both your existing office and your new office, and if possible, a site visit to the new office should be included.
While determining the office removals quotes, ensure you ask the office removals company the following:
- What services are included in the quotation, i.e. packing and unpacking
- Is an Office Relocation Inventory included?
- What insurances do they offer, and what are the damages that are covered in the insurance?
- How will the goods be transported?
- How will they deal with parking issues?
- Confirm whether the date you intend to move office is convenient for the office removals company
The process of moving office often involves the disposal of furniture, IT and telecommunications equipment, as companies have to re-configure space, expand or downsize. Ask your office removals company about disposing/recycling any unwanted office furniture as many of them include this as part of their service.
Once you have decided which office removals company to carry out your office relocation, ensure you have all your requirements confirmed IN WRITING. Keep in close liaison with your chosen office removals firm throughout your office move planning process.
