When it comes time to relocate your business, it might seem like a daunting task. It can be an overwhelming experience, especially if you aren’t prepared or if you attempt to rush through the process. You and your employees will need to work together to create a game plan to help the process move smoothly.
Because the planning and strategizing can take up to a few months, it’s necessary to ensure nothing is left out and all details are accounted for. However, you don’t need to figure out all the details on your own. Phil’s Transfer & Storage can help you figure out all the details in advance. We are the relocation professionals you need to help move your business. Below are some things to consider to ensure a successful relocation.
1. Book Your Moving Company ASAP
Los Angeles is filled with businesses, which relocate more often than you might think. Relocation professionals, like Phil’s Transfer & Storage, book moving dates on a daily basis. Reserve your moving truck, any necessary equipment, and your moving crew months in advance. Call us as soon as you have a general timeframe of when you will be moving, so we can schedule your move date.
2. Book Your Climate-Controlled Storage Building
Housing your inventory while you move is a part of the relocation process you don’t want to overlook. Inventory often needs to be stored in a climate-controlled storage building, which Phil’s Transfer & Storage offers for large, mid-sized, or small companies.
Not sure how big of a storage unit you’ll need? No problem! We can assist you in putting together an accurate estimate. Not sure how long you’ll need a storage unit? That’s ok! We offer both long-term and short-term options. Our climate-controlled storage units do tend to get booked up fairly quickly, so call us for booking as soon as you know when you’d like to move.
3. Obtain Your Packing Materials
Residential moves are oftentimes easier to manage than commercial moves because most of the equipment and supplies you need for a residential move can be purchased at a local retailer without issue. For commercial office moves, we often need a wide variety of specialized packing materials to ensure we can handle your business’s equipment. You don’t want to go to the hassle of relocating your business only to arrive with broken or smashed supplies and equipment. Phil’s Transfer & Storage has all of the specialized items you need to ensure your business’s items stay safe in transit.
4. Keep Lines of Communication Open With Your Employees
Employees will be impacted by the move. They should be involved in the planning of the move, though not everyone you employ will have input in the relocation decision. Phil’s Storage & Moving can take care of all the details of the move to give you more time to communicate with your employees to ensure they feel supported and appreciated while you undergo the relocation.
5. Communicate With Your Vendors
You will most likely end up changing service providers when you move, so you’ll want to communicate with your vendors to see if you’ll be able to stay with them or find out if you’ll need to hire someone new. Your new property manager should be able to assist you to make sure you don’t have a gap in service.
There are plenty of moving parts that are included in your move that your professional relocation service won’t be able to help you with. Phil’s Storage & Transfer will take care of absolutely every detail we can to allow you more time to take care of the additional items you’ll need to get set up yourself.
6. Hire a Moving Crew to Assist You
No all professional relocation companies are considered equal. You think it would be an industry standard that all moving professionals would provide you with a full crew to help you pack or unpack; this isn’t always the case. At Phil’s Transfer & Storage, we stand apart against our competitors because we offer a full moving crew. We offer on-site planning before you move, and we handle every aspect of your move from planning to execution, along with all the details in between.
Our moving crew is made up of well-trained commercial movers who are experienced and efficient. Our moving crews will even unpack your items from a normal storage unit and move them into one of our climate-controlled storage units. We want to take care of all the details so you can focus on running and supporting your business.
Phil’s Transfer & Storage is here for you when you decide it’s time to relocate your business. We will support you with the full scope of moving services you need, including planning, packing, unpacking, transportation, and even truck rental. We are committed to making sure you have an easy, efficient, and successful relocation.
