Let’s not beat around the bush - moving offices is a big task. So big, in fact, that many companies put it off for far longer than is necessary. After all, if you’ve decided to move your business, you’ve done so for a reason. Perhaps you’re growing, or maybe you just don’t have the space you need to be creatively productive. Or maybe you need more space to store your things or get creative. So, why let the move stop you from achieving even greater heights? The key lies in hiring a great removals service. Here’s why.
Business continuityOne of the most common reasons businesses put off moving offices is because of the fear that everything will grind to a halt. This doesn’t have to be the case - at least not for as long as you might think. Sure, if you go ahead and move yourself, you’ll have to down tools for longer than your customers would like, but if a removals firm takes care of that job, you can still get on with yours.
Limited planning = less stressWhen moving your business without the help of professionals, you’ll have to do an inordinate amount of planning, from organising the packing to the intricacies of removal day itself. Why bother doing that when you can instead leave it to a bunch of people who know exactly what they’re doing? We could all do with less stress these days, and this is a great way to remove many stressful jobs from your shoulders when relocating the business.
The opportunity for a clear outChances are, you’ve probably got loads of stuff that has accumulated over the years for which you no longer have a need. Moving offices is a great way to have a proper clear out but, once again, if you do it yourself, you’ll be tasking members of staff with stuff that takes them away from delighting customers. Instead, an experienced removals firm will be able to dispose of your old stuff and donate the good stuff to charity. Doesn’t that give you a nice, fuzzy, warm feeling? Similarly, they’ll probably be able to remove and decommission any old IT equipment that you no longer need or use.
No chance of damaged itemsOne of the worst things that can happen during an in-house office move is equipment damage. Add that to the amount of time you’ll spend doing it yourself, and the ability to quickly spin the operation back up for clients will be near impossible. By hiring a removals firm, you’ll remove this worry completely. It’s the best peace of mind, ever.
Skilled movers and purpose-made vehiclesMoving offices yourself will call on your team members and a bunch of vehicles that probably aren’t fit for the job. Can you confidently say that the team members are, either? It’s no slight on them if not - you’re not operating a removals firm, after all! With a removals company in tow, you’ll have access to a skilled team of movers who just happen to have the keys to the best vehicles made for the job. It makes sense when you put it like that, doesn’t it?
There’s so much moreFrom packing services to hire packaging crates, and even shredding of confidential waste paper, there’s a lot more you’ll get from a professional office relocation. If you’re ready to make the big move, why not speak to Squab and see what we can do for you?
