How do you price a commercial move in Etobicoke?
The moving company should explain that they will send one of their commercial moving consultants to meet with your company to do a comprehensive assessment of what will be involved in your move. This individual will do a tour of your entire premises to determine things like:
– How many work stations that need to be disassembled and then reassembled.
– How many desks, credenzas, book cases, file cabinets and other case goods to be moved.
– How many computers, copy machines and other equipment to be moved.
– How many bins required for packing files, documents and other items.
– If there is artwork or other valuable items to be packed and moved.
– If special equipment is required to handle the move.
– The number and types of trucks and moving equipment needed.
– The number of personnel needed for the move out and move in.
– What third party services are needed.
How will my commercial move be managed?
A professional commercial moving company will explain that they will assign an experienced office/industrial specialist to act as your project manager. This individual will be tasked with working with your assigned in-house contact to coordinate all the services needed to complete your commercial move on schedule and on budget.
Do you have your own installers?
Most commercial moves require the dismantling and reassembly of employee work stations. It is important that the mover chosen has the expertise to handle this task. Major Move will designate personnel who have been factory trained on a wide variety of office systems. Having this expertise in-house increases efficiency during the move.
