Packing For A Commercial RelocationWhen you are looking at doing a commercial removal, you will need to think pretty carefully about the packing process. You will have two main options, the first and most common being to use commercial packing services, and the other to do the whole thing yourself, with or without the help of your staff. Whilst the first is the most attractive, some smaller businesses may not be able to make the latter make sense, and this is where the issues arise, in that the job needs to be done to a professional standard, to ensure the safety of your business’ property, whether it is equipment, stock, or whatever else your office or retail space contains. The delicate nature of the equipment used in offices, as well as the size and number of some of the furniture that may need to be moved means that the best way is usually to go for the packing service, given as you would not dream of trying to move it all on your own, the same goes for loading it in to boxes and protecting it. Have a look over the two options in the following paragraphs. Packing services will be a good option for you if you are looking to be insured by your commercial removals company. You will need to ensure that all items are looked after well, and that anything that is damaged will be replaced or compensated for. In the event that there is a commercial relocation company helping you, but you are not using their packing service, you will need to ensure that you are aware that most companies will not insure boxes that have not been packed by themselves. This makes sense in that in the event of a breakage, the blame will not be clear between bad packing, or bad handling. Better to let the company take responsibility for both. When it comes to delicate things like computers, you need to be sure that you have the right packing materials. Some technology will have designated boxes, like computer monitors and the like. These boxes will have been designed for the safe transportation of such items to prevent any damages that will cost you dearly. Remember that even outside insurance policies will have premiums that may be higher than the price of one or two bits of equipment, and whilst they will need replacing, it may well have to come out of the business’ pocket.With this in mind, you will find that packing things yourself is not the best way to do the job, unless you are sorting out a very small office or shop. Putting all your stock in to boxes needs to be done carefully, so that you are not at risk of anything getting broken, as this will affect the prices that you can get for the stock. The same goes for equipment that you need for the office, as having a malfunction in such things will lead to an issue with getting the office back up and running. The main aim of a removal in these sense of office or commercial spaces is to ensure that you’re getting the company up to a new level, where making money is easier and quicker. If you are wasting money or making it harder to make profit with the removal, then you will be doing the opposite of what you need to, and it will go against the whole point of the move in the first place.
