There are many aspects involved in planning a business relocation or an office move. From having the mailing address changed to successfully moving complicated IT network systems, there are simply way too many moving pieces involved. When you add in the unexpected, an unseasoned mover will quickly find him or herself in way over their head. Such moves require detailed and strategic planning that requires an experienced moving company that offers CT corporate relocations.
Tips When Packing The Office
Packing for an office move is time-consuming and is best left to the professionals. While your employees are focusing on keeping your business running smoothly, having them attempt to pack office items will cause great distractions and frustrations. Having your employees attempt to DIY when it comes to packing could result in poor morale as well. Your employees are not trained to pack properly, but All Points Moving & Storage employs professionally trained and experienced packers who easily handle the packing of all types of items from paper files to fragile custom glassware. Professional packers have the ability to properly and safely pack your entire business in a fraction of the time it would take your employees to pack. Additionally, professional office movers are trained move and lift moving boxes safely. Expecting your employees to slide, lift and move heavy boxes puts them at risk for workplace injuries that will undoubtedly cost far more than the cost of hiring office movers.
Give Employees A Break When It Comes To Breaking Down Equipment
Your employees sit at their desks, in their chairs and use their computers daily, but that doesn’t mean they are qualified to disassemble these items. Office furniture such as heavy desks and file cabinets may require disassembly and reassembly to move. Large high-tech machinery and computers also require special handling. These types of office relocation tasks should be handed over to the experienced moving experts. Putting your employees at risk of injury also puts your company at risk of workers compensation claims.
Don’t Risk Downtime To Your Business Operations Or Employees
While your company lets the business relocation experts handle the heavy lifting, let your employees focus on their work responsibilities. Employees will need to focus their time on keeping the business running as smoothly as possible during the office relocation process. And once in the new space, employees will have to spend time organizing and acclimating to the new space while also conducting business as usual. Expecting your employees to assist in a business relocation not only puts your employees at risk, but also risks downtime to your business operations if your injured employee will require significant time away from work to recover. Bottom line: Rely on a trusted, experienced CT business mover like All-Points Moving & Storage for a smooth, well-executed move and to keep your employees safe and happy and your workers compensation premiums down.
