Choosing Fort Worth Office Movers

Posted by:

There are many fine moving companies in Fort Worth, but when choosing a mover to help you with your office relocation, it is very important that you take a few steps to make sure that you are choosing the right one for your business.

First things first, check with your building management to see what insurance requirements your movers will need to work in your building, so when you start contacting moving companies you will know immediately if the moving company that you are contacting meets those requirements. If they can’t produce a certificate of insurance in a timely manner it is likely that you are wasting your time, so move on. I can’t tell you how many times we have received a phone call from a panicked employee who just found out that their movers don’t have enough insurance coverage to work in their building, and they are moving in three days. Office moves usually require extensive planning and man power, so if you’re calling few days before you need to move, you might have a lot of trouble finding an office mover to help you out. So please, check with your building before you do anything.

Second, make sure you get at least 3 quotes for your office relocation. If you contacted 2 moving companies, and one gave you a quote of $2,600 and the other gave you a quote of $1,300 both while working at an hourly rate, how do you know which one is telling you truth? If you got a third estimate that came in at $2,500 you would know immediately that the moving company that the one that quoted you $1,300 either wasn’t being truthful or they simply weren’t experienced enough to estimate your move correctly. Also let’s say that you’ve received 2 fixed quotes, again one for $2,600 and one for $2,500, but you also received a quote to work at an hourly rate for $1,300. Again this is a Fort Worth moving company that is likely not being honest with you or isn’t experienced enough to give you a proper bid on your office move. Experienced moving companies should be able to tell exactly what it takes to move your office, and should be able give you an estimate to reflect that. So if you see an estimate that isn’t even close to others, then you should probably avoid them. In these situations, going with the lowest price is not always the best solution.

Third, when choosing Fort Worth movers to help you with your office move, make sure they have experience in “office moving”. Just because you hired a local Fort Worth moving company to move your house or apartment and they did a wonderful job with that doesn’t mean they will do a wonderful job with your office move. Moving household goods and moving an office are two completely different animals. Moving companies that specialize in moving household goods might not do a great job on an office move. So when you are looking to hire a moving company to help you with your office move, make sure they are experienced. If you are moving a large office and relocating a large number of employees, make sure to ask for a reference of a similarly sized office move so you know they can handle the workload. This process will help you weed out companies that would be in over their head if they attempted to move your office.

By taking a few simple steps before you choose your office mover, you can save yourself a lot of headache down the road. Choosing the right office mover is very important to a successful relocation, so I hope this information helps you with any future decisions.
