Furniture providers make the best office movers. Think about it: who would you rather have moving heavy, fragile–not to mention expensive–equipment besides those whose day-in-day-out business involves moving heavy, fragile, and expensive equipment?
You may think you’ll save money by settling for the lowest bidding office movers who promise to move your furniture and office equipment quickly. According to moving expert John Ruskin, when you choose the lowest bidding moving company you actually risk your experience being a far more expensive than you wanted. “If you deal with the lowest bidder,” Ruskin says, “add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.” Perhaps a better move experience, and more.
It is one thing to hire some strong-arms to move any furniture and valuables, but furniture dealerships spend a good portion of each week moving furniture that they sell. Taking care of each piece and ensuring it’s safe transportation and mint condition upon delivery is a priority.
This daily process qualifies furniture providers as excellent office movers. Not only will your valuables and equipment find themselves at your new location in a timely manner, but they’ll also look as good as they did before you moved them.
In an earlier article of ours, we mentioned one of the most important office moving tips was communicating and over-communicating with every party involved.
When it comes to logistics, high volumes of details often cause multiple crucial moving instructions to be lost along the way. At a scale of an entire office, one or two crucial instructions could mean days or weeks of work being delayed or compromised.
Furniture providers know which commonly overlooked logistics should be emphasized throughout the moving process. You shouldn’t have to remind your office movers of your concerns. Instead, furniture providers will know the best ways to pack bulky items, which 3rd party vendors are most helpful, and plenty of other helpful bits along the way.
This reason may seem obvious, but a short web search of worst moving stories ever will prove to you that knowing the furniture and equipment being moved is an advantage you don’t want your office movers to be lacking.
Rather than having to inform your movers about the furniture they’ll be moving, qualified and expert furniture providers already know the ins and outs of each furniture piece.
For example, let’s say you have a series of workstations that need to be moved. Your furniture provider has already handled receiving and shipping that product, or a similar line, and brings that experience to your move. As you scale to more and more items, the space and time savings really add up.
Of course, it’s quite possible that your furniture provider has all this experience, but lacks the time and resources necessary to help you manage your office move. This is where we come in. As a leading furniture provider, McCoy-Rockford has helped customers of all sizes manage their office move without a hitch.
1. Due to their experience moving their own pieces daily, furniture providers are more qualified to be your office movers.
2. Furniture providers plan pro-actively from start to finish. This serves to your advantage when they’re communicating and organizing your move.
3. The extreme familiarity furniture providers have with a variety of furniture piece will inform your office move so you learn from their experience instead of trying to teach them from your own.
