If you need to move your business and you prefer not to have to shut down during the moving process then you may not have to. Many business moves are conducted while the business continues to operate. Commercial business movers worth their salt will be able to accommodate businesses that need to move and operate simultaneously in many cases.
Here are some questions you can ask to find out if the business mover you’re considering is able to serve your specific needs:
- Learn a little about moving company’s history. How long have they been in business? Do they have sufficient experience relocating businesses?
- How large is their company, their fleet, and their moving crews? If they only have a couple trucks and five movers for example, and you need to move a 50,000 square foot facility, is that really enough to meet your business size needs efficiently?
- Do they have an actual commercial moving department or are they really just household movers who ‘think’ they can handle a commercial move?
You can also request to meet with the commercial moving consultant and the crew foreman. Ask them how they will handle your move. You will be able to see if the foreman has the experience and know-how to manage his crews in order to handle your business needs. Require your movers in consideration to also provide you with a tangible move plan. It should show you a schedule of when your movers will have given items, offices or departments relocated so that you can continue to operate parts of your business while other parts are being moved.
These are just a few questions and suggestions to help you find the commercial business movers you need, but remember members of the Commercial Relocation Network are already proven and certified capable movers, required to meet the highest of standards in the moving industry.
