Although residential moving can be an arduous and even complex process in and of itself, commercial moving can pose even greater challenges. There are a number of additional variables and tasks to consider when it comes to office or commercial moving services. Houston businesses, however, can take advantage of the help afforded by professional office and commercial movers.
These agencies have the resources and personnel to meet the tasks that need to be done with an office move head-on. Consider the following information as you embark upon the process of getting your commercial move in motion.
One of the first things to realize is that a commercial mover will provide you with an estimate of commercial moving services. In order to give you an accurate quote, the moving professional will likely need to visit your location and assess the entire scope of the project. With your prospective moving company representative onsite, you may want to ask him or her about some things.
Possible Items of Inquiry:
You may want to ask about the quote itself and how it will be broken down. Try to get a quote that itemizes every single major task so that you really know what you’re getting for your money. This will also enable you to compare quotes.
Ask about the overall process of the move and how it will be accomplished. The moving professional may give you this information voluntarily, but if not, it is important to ask so that you are fully in the loop about what will be done.
Ask about valuation coverage and what it covers. This is important to know in advance of signing a contract.
As far as specific commercial moving services, you should expect the following and possibly more:
- Single point of contact
- On-site project management
