When thinking about the elements of a commercial relocation, it’s essential to ensure safety of the company’s belongings. It can be very expensive to replace the items that can get broken on a removal. And you will find that the resulting issues can really get in the way, if you are not careful.
The insurance that a lender or a removal company will give you on commercial removals will be good. But it will often have an excess, which will make it difficult to validate claims below a certain amount. This may well be more than you would need for a smashed computer monitor, despite that still being an intrusive damage, and a large amount of money. Be sure that you’re well aware of how you’re packing, so that these things don’t become a problem. Set things up for a stress free, and economically viable removal.
You will find that the best way to ensure that you’re packing well for your business relocation is to hire a packing service. You will undoubtedly be able to ensure that the job is done well by the team that your removal company provides. And they will always use the best packing supplies. You should find that there are specific boxes you can use for specific items. For example, computer monitor boxes; flat boxes for wall art. And many other item-specific packing solutions. You will need to talk over this kind of thing with the moving services, to ensure that it all makes sense for you. But beyond getting your staff to do it for you there will be little other option than a packing service, if you have a large office to move!
The way in which you pack things within the boxes is important as well. Wrap the more delicate items individually within the boxes, to ensure they won’t smash against each other, and break. You need to be well prepared with all of the materials necessary for the job if you’re going to do it yourself. Bubble wrap, packing paper, removal boxes, tape and markers are all essential.
Markers are a surprisingly important part of that list. You should always clearly label your boxes so that the unpacking process can go smoothly. Write on each moving box the room that it’s to go in, as well as its contents. This will help the movers know the best way to treat and pack the box in to the van. It will also help your unpacking team to get the job underway as quickly as possible. They won’t have to sort through the boxes, working out where each one is. If you are clever about it, you can organise the safe and sensible unpacking of the boxes whilst you are packing them. You want to get your office and work back on track as soon as possible.
