How to choose a Removals Company
If you’re about to move office, you’ll no doubt be searching to find a office removals company, but it’s important to pick the right one in order to alleviate some of the stress of an office relocation.
Whether you’re moving next door or to the other side of town, choosing the right removal company to suit all your business needs and requirements will help make the transition to the new premises a smoother one.
Before you enter into any type of agreement, it is important to get quotes from a selection of different office removal companies. Seeking a full breakdown of what is included in the price is sensible and you then have a point of reference should anything go wrong on the day. Obtaining several professional quotes well in advance of your move date is a good starting point.
Many companies will have websites where you can receive an instant indicative quote online but it is better to get a more detailed assessment before you enter into any commercial rental agreement. A professional removal company will also send out a sales estimator who will be able to see what you have to move and derive an office removals quote which is more accurate.
Leave plenty of time
Make sure that you do not leave this aspect of your office move until the last minute as the quotation process can take up to a couple of weeks and it may take further time for the company to provide you with a suitable date. A good office removal company will be booked up weeks in advance so it really does pay to start looking well before your expiry date.
Providing your office removals company with a detailed plan of your new office premises is a good idea as it will alert them to the property’s access points and layout so that they are aware of what to expect when they get there. Providing details such as how many flights of stairs there are and any other alternative access routes will save your office removals company time and make the move go smoother.
It is a good idea to check that any office removal company you contact is members of either the the British Association of Removers or The National Guild of Removers and Storers. These companies set standards and a code of conduct for their members, so you should be reassured of their professionalism and conduct at all times.
