Furniture handling during an office move

Furniture handling during an office move

In our time, office relocation, carried out in the “northern capital” of our homeland, is no longer customary to compare with global and destructive events. Everything happens in a dignified, civilized manner and without nervous strain. An interested client makes a call to the moving company he likes and briefly describes his application. Representatives of the company, at the same time, announce the approximate cost of the service, based on the initially received data. This figure is very conditional, since it depends on many factors: the distance that will need to be overcome during the move, the volume of things being transported, the complexity of the design of the furniture being transported, etc.

For example, a simple cabinet made of chipboard cannot be harmed by moving. But if fragile glass, antiques or expensive electronics are found among the things being transported, the conditions of transportation and its cost will be different.

If the initially named moving cost is acceptable for the client, the manager of the moving company goes to the place, makes the necessary calculations, negotiates additional conditions and saves the received data. Based on these data obtained during personal contact, a further calculation of the cost and conclusion of an agreement between the client and the company is carried out.

The contract must specify: the final cost of the office move and a list of all services provided. Transportation of office furniture and office equipment is not recommended to be trusted even by employees of your company, not like outside loaders. Both those and others will not be able to professionally disassemble, move and put all things in the correct order. Practice shows that employees of a moving company will definitely break something; and non-professional movers, and at all, will treat expensive furniture like sacks of potatoes. In the end, what was originally conceived as saving money, in the end, will lead to additional costs.
