Any office move requires comprehensive planning and proper scheduling in order to eliminate downtime and minimize the impact on business hours. Business owners often hire professional movers for relocating their office in a hassle-free manner. The best way to start the office moving process is requesting free move estimates from experienced commercial movers. Getting a moving estimate is the most accurate way to budget for your office moving costs. Here are certain factors that one should consider while reviewing moving estimates:
- Type of office space: Office spaces vary in size, design, and layout. Moving your entire office involves moving server room, office furniture, phone lines, business documents, and a variety of other office items. The estimate should include a breakdown of costs for moving different office belongings based on the size and weight.
- Distance being moved: The greater the distance of the new office from existing location, the higher the moving quote. Access to pick-up location & drop off location affect the loading and unloading process. Travel time and access issues will add to the total moving cost.
- Additional services: The services provided by different movers vary. Additional services such as junk removal, office furniture assembly/disassembly, computer & server disconnecting and re-connecting may prove to be beneficial for your office moving process. Make it clear to your mover about other services you would like to opt for along with the moving service. Additional services can significantly affect the moving estimate.
Compare the moving estimates before finalizing any mover. By considering these factors, you can better determine the actual cost of moving your office, and most importantly, you’ll not get surprised by the final bill.
