1. Hire a licensed mover.
Greene Moving & Storage has many years experience moving satisfied business, offices, and other commercial enterprises throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island & New York.
2. Purge all files and throw away old printed literature before the move.
Greene Moving & Storage reminds you that paper piles up quickly and is held long beyond its usefulness. It’s worth remembering that the weight can add up quickly, which will add to your moving costs.
3. Plan ahead.
Greene Moving & Storage suggests that you can save time and make your moving experience much more pleasant if you rough out a floor plan of your new office or commercial location, and show on it where each item of furniture and business equipment will go.
4. Schedule your move.
If you plan moving your furniture, office and business equipment on a weekday during normal business hours, you can avoid overtime charges.
5. Use rental plastic crates instead of cardboard boxes.
Boxes which are the same size, stack easier and faster, reducing the time costs moving your furniture and household items. Plastic crates hold more, protect better, and cost less in the long run. Greene Moving & Storage has boxes and other items to make your move easier in our Moving Supplies Department.
6. Ask your moving company about any additional charges.
Greene Moving & Storage will supply information about “hidden” commercial moving charges such as fuel surcharges, truck charges and rental equipment as part of our estimate. We want your business move to be a pleasant experience, without unexpected surprises.
7. Try to schedule your move during “slow” periods.
Greene Moving & Storage has found that January, February and March are the least busy months in the furniture moving business. Moving during the winter months may help you find better pricing.
8. Assign only ONE person as your Move Coordinator.
Greene Moving & Storage has found that one of the biggest time problems is caused by too many people trying to direct our movers. This only makes the move take longer, and adds to the cost of your business move.
9. Check references.
Check with the local Chamber of Commerce and Better Business Bureau, and ask the moving company for references.
It always pays to be sure of the reputation of any contractor. Greene Moving & Storage is proud of its record of service and long list of satisfied customers. Ask us for references (with names and telephone numbers) from our former business customers. Our record of satisfying large and small clients with our professional, experienced and cheerful movers is unequaled. We’re proud of our history of business and office moving.
10. Take small items of high value with you.
Small objects such as laptops and personal items can easily be mixed up during a move if loaded with a large amount of furniture and boxes. Greene Moving & Storage advises that the surest way to keep these items safely connected to the people who use them is to have your employees bring them home prior to the move. They can bring them in to the new location when they report there after the move is over.
