Did you know on average, companies spend around $17k on office relocation each year?
If you're in the process of relocating your office, you're likely faced with several options on how to get it done. Since relocating your company isn't always a cheap task, affordability and convenience is likely top of mind.
Read on to learn about the benefits of moving management services for your next move.
When you own a business, you know that time is money. All business owners fear the idea of office relocations due to long periods of downtime.
If you want to minimize downtime during an office move, hiring a moving management company, such as CFS, is the best option. Why? Because companies that specialize in move management offer organized and trained professionals that will ensure the move is fast and efficient.
They know how important it is for your business to be up and running with as little downtime as possible.
Aside from transporting all of your company's belongings, you can expect a moving management company to help you put your office back together.
The last thing you want is for all of your office supplies and furniture to arrive at the new location and not know where anything needs to go. When a move management company is in charge of taking apart your furniture and equipment, they will also put it back together in your new location.
Because they're experts in office moving, they will unpack everything exactly where it needs to go. Once they're done installing everything, it will be effortless for employees to resume their activities.
Relocating to another office is no walk in the park, especially if you don't have the right equipment. Chances are you don't know how to take apart cubicles, office chairs, desks, etc. On top of the complexity of taking apart and assembling office furniture, you also have to worry about transporting heavy equipment.
This is where a professional moving management company can help handle the entire move. Not only do they have tools to take apart and put back together furniture, but they also have the ability to transport heavy equipment such as Xerox machines, computers, and more.
Although hiring a moving management service might seem like the more expensive option, it’s actually more affordable in the long run. If you choose to pay for a professional moving company, everything should be included in the moving package you choose.
However, if you decide to handle it yourself, you will have to pay for everything separately:
- Moving truck and moving equipment
- Packing materials
- Rent or purchase tools to disassemble furniture
- Countless hours employees will spend packing
- Loss of wages due to downtime
You will end up paying more if you decide to source all these services separately.
Another advantage of professional moving companies is that they're insured. You will have peace of mind knowing that the company has insurance if anything happens to your office supplies, furniture or equipment.
You might not be as lucky if you decide to handle this all by yourself.
