The most important detail when moving your business is the data on your computers and servers, keep in mind moving companies do not cover loss of data, this is a very important detail to note and all necessary measures must be taken in advance by the customer for backups.
The recommended method is to purchase a full package deal with a removalist as they will handle the packing for you and all insurances in this trade offer full coverage of any damage if it has been done by professional packers, this will usually take place with an organized and detailed listing and packing of the items according to where they came from, whose desk and files with a methodical inventory to make it easy to identify what belongs to who and where it should be taken to at the new location.
Are you in contact with an actual moving company or a broker???
Many so-called moving companies on the internet are actually brokers, posing as removal companies that sell your information to third parties. While this practice might provide lower-priced quotes, it does not guarantee quality or control or insurance. You should insist on working directly with a moving company so you can negotiate your own pricing and terms of service, also always ask for details of their insurance.
The other factor is the relocation processing that most businesses neglect, this has to be planned on 2 days, depending on the size of your company, the 1st day all the boxing and packaging takes place with the assembly and protection of all office furniture’s, machinery, large printers, archives ready to be safely loaded on the HGV’s for the next day.
It’s very important for the assessment of your quote to determine the volume in terms of cubic meters, and in the event of heavy machinery, their weight.
This will allow the moving company to determine the number of staff and equipment needed and the time required for the entire operation, allowing them to write an estimate or a flat rate offer.
