Packing For An Office Move

Packing For An Office Move

In a perfect world, a business owner would find a suitable building to work from that matches their needs. This is rarely the case because cash flow often dictates the type of workspace a company can afford. Similarly, there might be issues with finding somewhere that ticks the boxes when you begin property scouting.

If you run a business and your company needs more or less room, it’s time to look elsewhere. And when you find a fitting replacement, the process of relocation begins. This isn’t to be taken lightly; you must safeguard your business’s assets by using a professional moving company like Aussie Man & Van.

Using a Professional Moving Company for Your Office Relocation

When you start planning your office move, it will be tempting to reduce costs by aiming for the lowest price. What better way to do this than hiring a van and doing it yourself? Sounds great until you realise there are other things to consider. You’ll take staff off duties to perform during the day and at various times when packing and planning. That’ll have financial implications because it could cost more if you don’t finish on time.

You might then search for cheap moving companies with a view of having someone else do the heavy lifting without breaking the bank. But this doesn’t guarantee you’ll receive a decent level of service. That’s why in-the-know business owners in Bath work with Aussie Man & Van. We can provide a superior standard of removal service at reasonable prices.

That means you’ll have the ultimate level of protection for your office furniture and equipment. We’ll advise you on insurance and using an inventory to list every item moving. Our office removal experts will create a unique strategy that reduces downtime. Let’s look at what our Office Removals package offers in more detail.

Aussie’s Office Packing Service with Secure Crates

There are a few options available for businesses in Bath. Some want to undertake the packing and are ready to delegate with their team. Others need a helping hand and want us to perform the packing for them. But it’s not simply a case of unplugging everything, taking the desks and chairs apart, and boxing the rest up.

For starters, a traditional moving box isn’t always the most suitable option for office and business objects. Computers and electronic devices are easily damaged if they don’t have adequate protection. In this scenario, we suggest using secure packing crates for IT equipment. Then it’s a case of sealing and labelling them correctly for the unpacking part of the job.

Aussie has several packing crate options available in our Bath branch that are ready for use today. Should we need more, we’ll liaise with one of our partner companies to order more. This is all part of our flexible ethos, where your individual business needs come first. And we can provide the correct level of packaging and vehicle arrangement to protect your items.

Affordable Business Removals and Storage in Bath

At Aussie, we understand that budget maintenance is crucial to every business. And relocating to new premises is expensive, even with cheaper providers. That said, it’s essential to err on the side of caution as you weigh up your options. Making a decision to save money at all costs could increase your costs if there are breakages.

Aussie understands the need to strike a balance, and that’s why we have competitive rates. They’re not the lowest, but our high standards are amongst the best removal companies in the UK. You’ll receive the best value for money because the move will be stress-free. And business owners can delegate more tasks to us to free up time so you can get on with other vital tasks.

This also extends to our Business Storage packages. No two office removals are the same, and some require a staggering timeline. That means having a location offsite to keep your furniture and equipment safe and secure until the new office or workplace is ready. You can achieve this with storage, which seamlessly fits into our Removal service.

Creating a Moving Strategy to Reduce Downtime

All relocations take weeks, if not months, of planning to get from the first inquiry to your moving day. But office and commercial moves are on another level from most domestic moves. Failing to prepare adequately in this situation spells disaster. And that will lead to significant cost implications, such as prolonged downtime and supply chain issues.

For many companies, this simply isn’t a prospect they can afford to entertain. That’s why they work with Aussie – they know we’ll not only steer the map, but we’ll draw the map. Every business removal we perform comes with a unique relocation strategy. This covers everything, from the new office or workspace layout and where your current furnishings will go.

We’ll then apply each task within a set timeframe to avoid delays or downtime. Aussie’s IT gurus will map out the complete migration, including electronic installation and testing if you have IT infrastructure. We can move you on a Friday and have you up and running first thing Monday morning.

An Inventory of Workplace Equipment and Staff Positioning

Here’s how we achieve the office layout and staff positioning side of the equation. We’ll create a blueprint of how your office or workspace looks now. Then we’ll meet with you and other senior team members to work out the most efficient setup. We can mirror the same layout or put together a better model.

From there, we’ll begin the process of cataloguing every piece of furniture and electronic item before the move. We’ll record them in an inventory and save them with images and notes, such as what office they are from and what they are going into. By using an app, it’s possible to download and export this to send to your insurance company. And if you don’t have a policy, we’ll walk you through the process.

Aussie works with a network of elite removals and storage companies that we can rely on. In the event your business has specialist needs, we’ll bring in the big guns. We can refer and/or arrange a White Glove service for sensitive equipment. This also applies to businesses with heavy factory machinery where special hoists and lifting tools are necessary.

Balancing Customer Service with Good Value for Money

We’ll reiterate the point of balancing the cost of your relocation and the service you receive. You don’t need a crystal ball – use Google Reviews to check on potential movers to see what previous customers say about them. If they have lots of two- or three-star reviews, we recommend you pass on them regardless of cost. You’re putting your assets at risk and inviting the potential for delays.

Aussie provides the best of both situations because balance is the key to a successful relocation. Our affordable rates allow you to enjoy value for money without worrying about unnecessary downtime or transition issues. And because of our comprehensive range of services, we’ll handle everything.

Aussie Man & Van has a firm commitment to service delivery and customer service. We strive to uphold the highest standard of business removals on every job. Through our Quality Policy, we have a designated framework for accountability and performance. That’s what puts us ahead of other moving companies in Bath.

You will likely have valuable assets if you’re an SME owner or a senior manager at a large corporation. Even with a decent insurance policy, breakages and damage lead to unforeseen problems. Putting in a claim will result in additional fees and higher premiums. That’s why you should only work with a professional moving company.

Aussie works with thousands and households and businesses in Bath every year. We work tirelessly to provide everyone with the same ‘can-do’ attitude that underpins our positive ethos. The Aussie team will be with you at every stage of the process, from planning to unpacking the last crate.
