Moving a business requires detailed planning and organization. At the center of this process is the professional moving company that will make sure everything arrives at the new location safely. Here are a few questions to ask when hiring a professional office moving company:
Who is in your staff?
It’s important to know exactly who will be responsible for physically moving your assets. Are they paid employees of the company? Are they contracted from a 3rd party? Is a supervisor on site during the move? These questions will help get a sense of whether or not the moving team will be careful and efficient during the move.
Are you insured?
Unfortunately, accidents happen. An insured moving company is essential to making sure your belongings are protected from incidental damage or unexpected accidents. Ask what their insurance covers in the event of property damage or injury of the moving company employees during the job.
Can you provide an estimate?
Ideally, the moving company will be able to visit the site and its merchandise, equipment, etc., and provide a customize estimate for the move. In most cases, the quote is binding for a brief duration of time. This will help in your planning for the move because you will know exactly how much to set aside for the move.
How do I pay?
Ask your company if there is a deposit for the service. Avoid companies that try to get you to pay the entire cost up front. This is dangerous because there is no monetary incentive to do the job well.
