Services You Can Expect From a Commercial Removalist

If you own a business, whether it's a factory, warehouse, office or some other work location,  you may have to move during the course of your ownership. And to ensure an effective move, you will need to hire a commercial removalist. To help you understand what types of services, they offer, here's a rundown of what you can expect when you contract with these professionals.

Internal Relocation 

If you are moving an office from one floor to another within the same building, a commercial removalist can supply you with a team that can make that move efficient. One of the biggest challenges in an office relocation is moving big items such as computer network mainframes, conference room tables and safes.

Commercial removalists have hydraulic equipment that makes moving these items safer and easier, and ensures that none of these items will be damaged, which can cause a delay in the work day.

Employee Relocation 

One lesser-known service that commercial removalists offer is corporate relocation, in which employees are transferred to other work locations in a different Territory or abroad within the same company.

If you're a business owner, this can be a valuable service, as the commercial removalist company will arrange for your workers to visit their new location, arrange for flights and other transportation as well as lodging, provide an orientation at the new destination to acclimate your workers to their new city, arrange for meetings with realtors for house buying or to let an apartment, and facilitate any language program courses that may be necessary.

Global Tracking 

When you hire a commercial removalist, they can offer you global tracking; they can track every moving truck or van, and includes information such as packing dates, delivery dates, custom clearance (for overseas moves), storage data (for long term storage of furniture) and any delays due to weather or other unforeseeable circumstances.

This tracking is available to you on your computer, tablet or smartphone, so that you're never more than a click away from knowing exactly where your items are during the moving process.

Customized Packing

Commercial moves aren't the same as residential moves, because there is so much more fragile business devices that must be protected. Commercial removalists use customized packing equipment such as computer covers, computer trolleys and padded crates to protect valuable documents. Computer trolleys are encased in foam to provide additional protection when they're on the move and the crates are made to be stacked to increase the efficiency of loading and unloading.
