5 Things to Consider Before Hiring Office Movers

OMX blog cover

Is your office looking to make a big move this year? If so, there’s a lot of planning that you need to do to get your team ready. One of the biggest things you need to do is to hire an office moving company. But, with plenty of moving companies out there, which one should you choose? Make the right choice, and you’ll have a smooth and easy move that brings minimal disruption to your business. But, choose the wrong company, and you could easily have a disaster on your hands. Don’t worry, we’re here to make the decision an easy one. Check out this guide to learn the top things to consider before hiring office movers. 

 

 

1. Get Recommendations from Those You Trust 

 

Before hiring office movers, you should first talk to those you trust for recommendations. 

Considering that 40 million people, or 14 percent of the population, move each year, there’s a good chance that you have someone in your life that you can trust for a recommendation. 

It’s possible that someone you know had a bad experience with a reputable company. On the other hand, it’s possible someone had an excellent experience with a relatively new company.

While Google can certainly be reliable for finding a moving company, asking for recommendations from those you trust can help you read between the lines. 

 

 

2. License and Insurance 

 

Before hiring an office moving company, you also want to look into their license and insurance. 

Never, under any circumstance, should you use a moving company that isn’t licensed and insured. 

If you are relocating your office within the state, then it’s important to note that each state has different rules and regulations when it comes to licensing, so it’s important to look into your own state’s information. 

Insurance is also extremely important for a moving company, as without insurance, you could end up footing the bill for a mover who gets hurt on the job. 

 

3. Experience 

 

Obviously, you want to make sure the moving company you hire has a few years of experience under their belt. 

However, you also want to make sure that the company you hire has experience in your specific type of move. 

Moving from one house to another is a lot different than moving from one high-rise office to the next. Therefore, you need to make sure you hire a company that has experience with office moving. 

Only an office moving company will know the ins and outs of moving fragile office equipment, finding parking in busy downtown areas, and fitting heavy office furniture in elevators and up staircases. 

 

 

4.Review the Estimate Carefully 

 

Last but not least, you want to make sure you review the estimate the moving company gives you carefully. Make sure you cross those T’s and dot the I’s, and read all of the fine print. 

If you get a super cheap rate from a moving company, it may be tempting to immediately say yes. But, you often get what you pay for, so tread lightly. 

Before you sign, make sure the company you hire is transparent about all of their charges.
