Avoid Disaster with Help from Corporate Movers

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Corporate Movers

There are a number of reasons to use a corporate mover if you are considering moving your office location. An office move can be extraordinarily expensive and very stressful for all employees involved. Moving is difficult for both the people doing the move and for the employees who are involved in the move itself. Changing your location means that people need to change their patterns, direct customers to a new office and adapt to working in a new team setting. This is going to add a level of stress to your operation for a short time in the foreseeable future.

How Corporate Movers Can Help You

If on top of this, you add in the fact that the people are going to need to move their stuff themselves, it is a recipe for disaster and one that is avoidable. When you hire a corporate mover, your staff only needs to worry about themselves, and not be concerned as to whether or not their favorite desk is going to make it to the new location. In addition to the stress factor, there is also the reality that people are not very good at moving and can end up losing or misplacing important items. When you have a corporate mover, who is professionally trained and licensed to complete a corporate move, you do not have to worry about broken or misplaced items.

In the event that you choose not to use a corporate mover, one of the consequences of this action could be a lack of productivity from your employees as they are helping you carry boxes rather than doing important functions like servicing customers, making sales, or running the business. In fact, it has been found that companies that use corporate movers can continue to remain productive even while the move is going on. While the manager hires people to do a very specific job and you yourself are engaged in running the business, the manager may not be an expert in moving.

Benefits of a Corporate Movers

The best way to do a corporate move is to hire a corporate mover who can take care of all the heavy lifting, literally. Due to this, your staff and team can focus on the things that make your company great.

Perhaps the most important reason to consider using corporate movers to do your corporate move is the loss of important paperwork and files that could occur if you do not use professionals to do your move. The reality is that every organization has sensitive data and information, but in software form or in hard copy.  When you are trying to do a corporate move by yourself, without the assistance of corporate movers, you were going to be focused on the large picture of moving the entire office.

This can often lead owners, and key employees, to forget critical files and information or misplace them and therefore not be able to access them when they become immediately necessary. As a corporate mover, we understand that there is sensitive information that you are going to want to transport yourself. Since you have us, your corporate movers, to move all the heavy and big stuff, you and your key staff can focus on ensuring that all the sensitive data, things like sales information and files, can make it to the new office on time and remain easily accessible.

When looking for movers in Norcross, give us a call. We can make your move easier than you ever thought possible. We understand that moving can be incredibly stressful for any family. Whether you are moving across the country or to a new house in the neighborhood, it takes a lot of time to plan, pack, load the truck, unload and unpack again. If you have small children, this can mean plenty of sleepless nights and juggling babysitters. Instead of going through all of this hassle, call us so that we can take care of everything for you.

Reasons to Hire Movers in Norcross

Here are just some of the reasons that families hire us to move them -

#1 We can pack

One of the worst parts of moving is the actual packing. If you are already handling everything like closing on a new mortgage or lease agreement, figuring out ways to get the kids enrolled in the new school and planning for a new job, the chances of you having time to pack all of your belongings are slim. We can come to your home and pack everything in a way that is safe and also convenient because we label everything. You don't have to worry about lifting a finger.

#2 We load the truck

Save your back and prevent a possible strain prior to starting your new job. We can load the truck for you so you never have to worry about getting your humongous couch down the stairs and out the door.

#3 We drive the truck

We will drive your truck to the new location so you never have to get used to driving something so large or dealing with rush hour traffic. This eliminates a ton of stress and if your move is cross-country, makes it possible for you to drive your personal vehicles instead of your belongings.

#4 We can unpack for you

Once you get to your new home, we will handle the unpacking. Since everything will be clearly labeled, you just need to let us know who is in which bedroom and we will put everything in its proper place. How much we unpack is going to be up to you. We can move everything into the right location and leave it there or we can actually unpack each of the boxes so that you can enjoy your new home without having any worries about looking through boxes.

#5 We even build the furniture again

Very often large pieces of furniture need to be disassembled for the move. Things like your dining table or bunk beds may need to be taken apart to get into the truck. The good news is that when we handle the move for you, we will build it on the other end. This means that you can walk in the door and sit down at your dining table rather than worry about attaching the legs.

Office Movers Can Coordinate with Tech Support

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Office Movers

office-movers

As office movers, we can help our clients make a smooth transition to a new office location. Other times, we can get emergency calls from companies who are in need of desperate help after a failed attempt to handle everything on their own. We recommend that you call us from the very beginning so that we can help your move to go smoothly.

The Biggest Problem with Moving Your Office

Downtime and a loss of productivity are typically the biggest problems with an office move. If a move is not coordinated properly, you can lose days and even weeks of productivity as your employees have spent time packing, moving, and then searching for everything at the new location. When you combine this with a lack of internet or utilities or waiting on tech support, it can become incredibly cumbersome and difficult for your team to do their job. This can result in your customers waiting for help and customers not receiving the support that they require in order to continue working with your company. Avoiding this risk is wise and we are here to help to make sure that your move goes smoothly.

One of the ways that we can assist you is to coordinate and prepare for your tech support. While we will not be the one to set everything up with them, what we can do is work hand-in-hand with them to ensure that everything is in place so that when they come to hook up the computers, set up the printers, and connect the phone systems, they have the ability to walk in and look at everything that they need. This can save you a critical amount of time. Considering how costly it is to hire tech support, you certainly do not want them waiting around for boxes to be unpacked.

We can visit your current office and create a plan with you for how to handle the move. We can then pack up office by office. This means putting everything in boxes including personal items, phones, and computers, etc. By appropriately labeling everything, we can then move those boxes and items into the correct offices at your new location. If you have a map and can label it in regards to which employee goes where that would certainly be of assistance. By the time that tech support arrives, we can have the desks put back together, the computers on the desks and the phone systems there as well.

This will allow tech support to walk in and begin immediately to wire everything and connect your devices to the server they are setting up for you. Your employees will be able to walk in the next morning or day after and begin to take and make phone calls, work on their computers, print documents, etc. They will be able to focus on your customers and doing their jobs instead of scrambling to put things together.

We are professional office movers and can assist you with all of your moving needs.

Moving Companies for Out-of-State Relocation

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Moving Companies

moving-companies

If you are relocating out-of-state, then hiring moving companies to transport your belongings is the easiest way to make the transition.  In today's economy, it is common for people to move for work. The economy has rebounded to the point where there are more jobs, but they are not necessarily in your own backyard. Thus, families may have to move in order to receive higher paying jobs or to take advantage of advancement opportunities. Moves due to new positions in the workplace are not typically made without careful thought, planning, and consideration.

Once you make that decision, you may still feel a little apprehensive. We aim to make the process as easy as possible for you by taking care of all your belongings. After all, you have a major transition on your hands and the last thing you need to do is worry about how to transport your dining room. Upon deciding to move, we encourage you to call our office and talk to us about the plans. While it is better for us to know as far in advance as possible, we can still help in the event of a sudden move.

Moving Companies Handle Everything

To make moving a breeze, we handle everything from start to finish. We can come to your home and pack all of your belongings or simply move all of your pre-packaged belongings if you prefer. We can even pack things like your fragile china and keepsakes, carefully wrapping them with paper, placing them in boxes and labeling those boxes with the rooms where they will return. Packing can be the worst part of any move. By handling the packing for you, it allows you to wrap up your affairs such as selling your house or completing your last few days at work.

After packing all the belongings, we can load it onto the truck and drive it to your new home. With our service, you never have to worry about taking furniture apart, struggling to load heavy objects onto a truck, or finding a way to make the cross-country trip while also transporting your personal vehicles. You can simply focus on getting your cars and family to your new home while we handle everything else.

We will give you a set date to expect us at your new home. Once we arrive, we will begin the process of unloading. We can put all the boxes into the appropriate rooms and bring the furniture in. We can also set up the furniture and even unpack for you if necessary. This means that you can focus 100 percent of your attention on your family and your new job, rather than the actual moving process.

If you want to handle much of this on your own, having us simply unload the truck and move everything, we can do this as well. Just let us know how much help you want when you call our office.

Business Movers Prevent Disruption to Your Operation

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Business Movers

business-movers

As business movers, we have an important role to play when a business is relocating by preventing stalls in business operations. Since a day or week without an office can make it impossible for your employees to work and customers to be taken care of, this is critical for your overall profitability.

Consider how much money you can lose if your team is not able to complete work due to the move. What happens if it took weeks to organize your new office? If the very thought of this causes you stress, it is a good idea to hire a moving company. Otherwise, your staff may be spending all of their time settling into your new location.

Plan for a Successful Move

When moving your office it is wise to plan ahead. We recommend that you call and schedule a meeting so that we can come to your existing location, discuss what you are trying to accomplish, and how you want your new office set up. By walking your current office, we can make a map of where everything is located currently. This will allow us to label everything. For example, "office #1 belongs to HR" so everything from that office can be labeled accordingly.

With the layout of your new office, we can track who will be occupying each office at the new location and move everything to the right spot before your team arrives. It is also possible for us to move each box, desk, and chair into the right office so that your team does not have to spend any time sorting through boxes to find their belongings.

How Business Movers Can Help You

We can do as much or as little for you as you like. Some of our services include:

  • Dropping off boxes ahead of time. If you want your employees to pack their own personal possessions, we can drop off boxes before the move so that they can do so.
  • Packing for you. We can pack up your entire office on moving day and label each box so that it is easy to locate at the new office. This ensures that your staff does not spend any time away from their normal job duties.
  • Moving furniture. We move all of the big items, taking them apart as necessary so that no one in your office is inconvenienced. This is also beneficial from a worker's compensation perspective. Your employees could injure themselves by becoming involved in the move, creating unnecessary issues for your company.
  • Moving all of it. We can load everything into the truck and take it to your new location. We often recommend that this is done on a Friday so that everything can be in place and ready for your employees Monday morning.
  • Set-up. Packing and moving is only the start. Once we have taken everything to your new office we will unload it and move it into the correct location as discussed during the planning sessions. Once there, our team can reassemble furniture and make sure it is in the correct place. We can even unpack smaller items if you would like to do so. Otherwise, each box will be in the correct location so that your staff can take a bit of time on Monday morning unpacking.

As business movers, we can handle your move from start to finish and avoid any interruptions to work flow. To discuss our services in greater detail call and schedule a consultation.

Planning Tips for Working with Specialty Movers

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Specialty Movers

specialty-movers

There are several reasons that individuals and businesses hire specialty movers. As one, we take a great deal of care when working with our clients to develop a plan to move their most precious possessions. When it comes to specialty and expensive objects, a plan must be created to ensure that they arrive at their destination safely. It is not enough to simply show up on moving day and put things in boxes. Instead, by creating a plan, we ensure that everything is in place so that your most precious items get where they need to go without incident or worry. After all, we understand that with your most precious possessions, that means far more to you than their actual worth. We understand that their value is intrinsic and this makes it critical that they arrive in perfect condition.

Create a Plan Prior to Moving

When hired, we will work with you to create a comprehensive plan to ensure that your specialty or high-value items are moved according to your wishes. Here are some things to consider:

  • Are the objects insured? While we take the best care to provide for their safety, it is still wise to have your most valuable possessions insurance
  • How fragile are they? It is necessary for us to provide the right type of packing materials to ensure their complete safety. If you have specific requests or things that we should know, that will give us an idea of what we can do ahead of time
  • Does this item need to be moved with security? If you are moving something that is incredibly expensive, you may want to do it with the help of security. In this case, we can have a security team work with our specialty movers to ensure that nothing happens along the journey. This tends to be more common in situations like moving family jewelry or high-value pieces of art
  •  Are there specific time frames involved with the move? When moving specialty objects that need to be coordinated with a gallery opening, a special event at a home or property, business plans etc. we have to time everything perfectly. If this is the case, we need to be aware so that we can ensure your specialty items are there when you need them
  •  Does anything need to occur so that the property is ready to receive your special items? Very often we are coordinating with household staff, assistants, etc. to ensure that everything is ready for the object to be set in place once it has arrived on site

Hiring Specialty Movers

Regardless of whether you need to move art, jewelry, furniture, or your most prized possessions, we have the team ready and available to assist you. As specialty movers, we can move virtually anything, large or small, with or without security. Do not hesitate to call us with your requests no matter how obscure they seem to be, and we will do our best to create a plan and accommodate you. Keep in mind that moving unique or specialty items can take some additional planning so the sooner you can call us the better.

Ways to Make Your Corporate Relocation Easier

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Corporate Relocation

A corporate relocation can be a very big deal, especially if you are upsizing or downsizing your office location. Packing and unpacking takes time, and anything that is not packed properly could end up being damaged before it gets to your new space. In addition, with a corporate move, you want to make sure that some of your key items are easily accessible once you get to the new location. For example, you do not want the entire office staff hunting for the copier while trying to satisfy customer orders. We can move and unpack you, so that this is never an issue.

The best thing you can do with a corporate move is to make sure you get an estimate, a checklist, and detailed advice from our company. We will come in, give you an estimate of how much the move will cost, and help prepare you and your staff for the big move. It is important that you listen to us, as we will give you the best advice to save you time and money. Corporate moves are a very specific type of move, and we are well versed in how to successfully transport an office and its staff from one location to the other.

The first step of a corporate relocation is to walk through the office and give you ideas and tips on moving. For example, one common mistake that people make is believing that they have to empty out all the filing cabinets because they will not be able to move unless the filing cabinets are empty. While this is a great way of applying conventional thinking, it may not be necessary, and you may be able to empty the two top drawers of a four-drawer lateral to prevent damaging the cabinet. It is important that you bring up all your questions and embrace all the options and procedures for moving things like artwork, office equipment, or something else that may be easily damaged, in order to prevent any unnecessary risk.

Any corporate relocation efficiency is your friend. You want to make sure to take advantage of any tools that are available to help you streamline your move. For example, individual cardboard boxes have rapidly been replaced by reusable plastic totes and tubs that are far easier to handle. If you think about a cardboard box and all the effort that goes into packing it, it makes sense that plastic totes or tubs would be far more efficient. You no longer have to go through all the rolls of tapes and stacks of cardboard boxes that have to be assembled before the move, and then broken down and trashed after you are done moving. Plastic totes make it plain and simple to move by allowing your employees to simply place everything into the plastic bins, close them, and put an identifying label on them. Once the bin has been transported to the new location, the employee can easily locate the plastic bin that belongs to them, pull out all the items, and finish their part of the corporate relocation

Ultimately, if you want to move with very little inconvenience, we can handle everything from the packing to the moving, and unpacking for you.

Making Your Move Easier: Tips from Moving Companies

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Moving Companies

moving-companies

As moving companies go, we pride ourselves on being able to provide our customers with the most seamless move possible. Part of this comes from our experience as a moving company and ensuring that the customers know exactly what to expect as they move houses. We know that moving can be an extremely stressful time for the family, particular for children and pets.

Tips for Moving with Children

One of the easiest things to remember about a move, which will help make your life significantly easier with the children, is to ensure that you do not pack their favorite toy and instead, let them take it with them on the trip. Parents often feel that the move is an excellent opportunity to get rid of some of the extra toys that the children have accumulated. It is important to remember that your child is already feeling stressed, and any removal of a favorite toy could lead to added stress for them and for you. While this does not necessarily fall under the purview of moving companies, we know that providing you with these kinds of easy and simple tips could help make your move far easier. Here are a few more helpful hints to plan your move successfully.

Scheduling Makes Things Easier 

Any good moving company will tell you that scheduling is one of the keys to a successful and seamless move. You want to ensure that you make your reservations for the moving company to come out at least two to four weeks before the actual day of the move. Similarly, you want to make sure to schedule disconnect times for about a week before you move, if possible. You do not want to pay and accept bills for your phone, utilities, and cable when you are no longer living at the old residence. While you are in the process of scheduling your disconnect at the old house, you should also make sure to schedule the service to be installed for at least a week or several days before you arrive at the new location. This will allow you to move into the new house and have all the gadgets and gizmos you need.  The moving company's job is to make sure we move all your belongings from location A to location B. Everything else will be up to you, so we highly recommend that you make a moving day list.

Final Tips

Once our crew arrives, things will start to move at a rapid pace. You may want to consider packing a box of essential items that you will need immediately after the move and make sure it is the last thing added to the truck. You should also bear in mind that it is against the law for moving companies to transport hazardous materials such as bottle gases, gasoline, ammunition, explosives, or any other flammable items. If you plan on moving any of these, you should pack them in your personal vehicle before or after the move.

Remember that we can pack everything for you, move you, and even unpack. As a result, we can make your move as easy as you want it to be.
