5 Tips For Finding The Best Office Removalist in Sydney
We know that this is a very uncertain time in the world right now, and you might be a business that is looking to move offices. You will need a removalist like your expert Hurstville removalists to help you with the move, but there’s lots to consider when choosing a removalist, and we’ve got a list for you here.
Look For Experience
Practice does indeed make perfect. Chances are, you probably haven’t moved office anywhere near as often as your removalist has! The more you do something, typically, the better you will become at it. So, whether it’s a Bondi removalist, or a Western Suburbs Sydney removalist you’re after, going for experience with your office move is always a good idea.
Ask Them To Come To Your Office to Give the Best Quote
Although price should never be the only factor, it’s undeniable that it does have to be a factor. The best way to get the most accurate quote for an office is not over the phone, so get them to come out to your office and quote you from there.
Hire a Removalist Who Knows the Area, and Understands the Rules of Moving Offices
Ultimately, building managers sometimes have by-laws or rules around when and how you are allowed to move your office, and some areas (especially CBDs or industrial areas) have set rules around loading zones and directions etc. It may seem trivial, and it is to an extent, but it’s always good to choose a removalist who has already moved within the same area or even, if possible, the same building as you.
Pick a Removalist with Multiple Services
You don’t just want a removalist who will pick things up, put them in the truck, and then put them down again. You want a multi-pronged approach, a company who might package your office items up, and unpack for you at the other end too. It’s worth looking into a service that gives you organisation tips, as perhaps you are downsizing your office. Removalists who also do home moves might have some insights on how to move from a big house to an apartment, for example. Possibly you also want to look for a removalist who can organise a professional clean for your newly vacated previous office space too. What you should be looking for is a full package service approach.
Look for a Removalist Who Looks After Your Office Stuff
Office equipment generally isn’t cheap or that easy to replace. Your desk chairs might be specifically tailored to your employees for example. You want to find a removalist that treats these items with as much care as they would their own, or the personal items they move homes with. It’s also worth checking that they have moving insurance too.
Bonus Tip: Move Whatever You Reasonably Can, Before Your Removals Date
This won’t necessarily help you with choosing a removalist, but it will help your move. And it might help keep your costs down a little bit. Many employees now work from portable devices like laptops as opposed to big PC desktops now anyway, so if there is easy to move, portable equipment, this can help you in your move.
Remember some tasks while you move office, like changing your address with all your creditors and debtors, and of course, with the authorities, such as your ABN registration.
We hope these tips help you have a smooth and successful office move, and, more importantly, we hope that you stay safe and business stays strong for you during this tough time.
