Office relocation can mean downtime, loss of productivity, potentially disgruntled employees, and plenty of headaches for the HR department. It doesn’t have to be that way though. This is an exciting time for your company but the work involved can quickly turn it into a nightmare.
This is where office relocation services come into play. We take the burden off your back so you can focus on the day-to-day operations of running a business and managing your staff. Here are 8 no-brainer reasons to hire an office relocation services company.
1. Efficient and Stress-Free
The most obvious and simple reason to hire office relocation services is because it’s simpler, easy, and more efficient this way. We’re professionals, we do this everyday, and we understand what types of issues or problems you may run into before they happen.
One of the keys to coordinating an effective corporate relocation is anticipating problems ahead of time. This isn’t our first time relocating–We have a long list of problems we’ve run into over the years. We’ve already made the mistakes so you don’t have to worry about making them this time around.
2. Turnkey Solution
No matter what business activity you’re taking on, planning and organization will determine how well everything goes. To coordinate a successful office relocation project you need a team of trained professionals on your side. Best of all, a good relocation company will provide a turnkey solution which means you won’t have to do any more or less than you want. You can be involved in the process if you’re the kind of HR manager that likes to have their hands in on everything. Or, you could be like most people and hand it off to a relocation company like ARC to handle for you. We do this all the time, we know what needs to be done, we understand how to coordinate everything properly, and we won’t stop until you’re satisfied.
3. Keeps the Office Running
One of the biggest issues with a large-scale corporate relocation is downtime. When you’re moving people, relocating equipment, setting up infrastructure on the other side, packing stuff, and planning everything it’s easy for employees to get distracted which can lead to unnecessary downtime and lower morale.
Handing the job off to commercial relocation services allows your employees to continue focusing on day-to-day operations and can protect the company from any financial downfall that may result from an extended period of low performance. If you and the whole team can focus on running the business while we focus on coordinating the move, it will make the whole thing run smoother which will result in improved morale.
4. Saves Money
This is the one point that a lot of companies don’t realize, but hiring office relocation services can actually help you save money. Some of the costs you might run into if you do everything alone are:
- Moving truck and company costs
- Moving and packing materials
- Tools and devices for disassembling and transporting furniture
- Lost working hours
Think about how quickly these costs can add up. Not to mention the fact that you’re going to make mistakes, there will be bottlenecks, and you’ll be responsible for handling everything yourself.
On the other side of the coin, you can hire a corporate relocation company, we take care of everything, and there’s one flat fee for it all from A to Z. It takes a lot of the guessing out and you don’t have to lift a finger if you don’t want to.
5. Gets The Equipment You Need
Office relocation project management requires you to think about all the minor details as much as the big ones. One thing that a lot of HR professionals overlook is the tearing down and reassembling of office desks, cubicles, tables, and other office furniture. Chances are, that stuff has been there so long that you neglect to realize it came in a box and was put together years prior.
Commercial relocation companies like ARC have all the contacts and resources necessary to make the process smooth and fast. We’ll make sure it all gets quickly and safely broken down for you, stored neatly in a way that is easy to transport, and even put back together when it gets to your new office. Trying to do this on your own or find movers that offer it will be difficult and costly.
6. Banks on Experience
Our experience is the number one reason why people hire us. Everyone has their thing and we don’t claim to know everything, but we know how to conduct a smooth and efficient corporate relocation.
Office relocation requires quick planning and the ability to pivot in a seconds notice. You have an office to run, employees to manage, and now – employees to relocate. The last thing you want to think about is the fact that the moving truck is going to be two hours later than planned. Let the experienced team at ARC take care of your cross country or international relocation.
7. Coordinates Transportation For You
Whether you’re moving five or fifty employees, transportation can be a challenge. You need to do all of this in a way that is timely, affordable, and easy for the employees. Keep in mind that they’re going through a lot as well. They might be uprooting a family, leaving loved ones behind, selling a home, taking kids out of school etc. This is all very stressful for them too.
Not to mention determining the costs of all of these things. Figuring out a relocation package for your employees is one of the most difficult aspects. If you don’t have experience, you’ll have a hard time. We’ll help you compile all of the relocation expenses so you can put together the ideal relocation package for your business.
Let us handle the transportation, airlines, moving companies, storage containers, dumpsters, and all that. You just worry about keeping your staff happy.
8. We’re Trained, Licensed, and Insured
