Commercial Moving Services

When looking into commercial moving it typically requires a bit more planning.  ERO Moving LLC is here to make your life less stressful. We can relocate offices in the Milwaukee area, and cater to the specific needs of each customer. There are a lot of commercial moving companies out there, but none of them will give you the personal experience ERO Moving assures.

It may seem a little overwhelming when you begin looking around your office thinking about everything you have to pack. There is also the added stress of trying to keep a business running efficiently while planning for a move. In order to simplify your move, we suggest a little preparation to ensure a smooth transition to your new location.

How to Prepare Your Office

Start charting your move approximately three months out.  Begin with a general de-clutter of the office.   This will help to maintain a more efficient method of packing. Start an inventory sheet compiling a list of everything you are planning to move. Also, begin mapping out where the furniture will go, and if new furniture will need to be purchased.

It is best to ask each employee what he or she may need to begin packing their own items. Each employee will have different needs. Some may have more paper, and therefore need file boxes; while others may have more electronics.  Providing the office with permanent markers and proper storage for electrical wires will prove to be extremely useful. When each individual is packing up their area, it will help everyone if they each label their boxes and bags. Therefore when you reach your new office area everyone will be able to find all of their supplies easily.

Try to plan your office move for a weekend and one business day.  You will need to take into account the technical aspects of your move.  According to a recent study, 66% of employees use two or more devices at work. Servers, computer systems, security alarms, phones, time clocks, card entry systems; are all factors which may prolong your time frame. It is recommended to coordinate between your communications and network systems, in hopes of reducing down time. Most businesses are unable to function without technology, so this is one area you don’t want to drop the ball!

Moving Sensitive Material

While you may want to plan out the actual moving of the bigger furniture, it is best to leave that to the movers. Many commercial moving companies offer services of dismantling and reassembling furniture.  This will leave you available to gather important documents. ERO Moving LLC understands your office may have highly confidential and sensitive material.  We guarantee a secure moving process for your classified materials.  We carry out extensive background checks on all of our staff to ensure you benefit from one of the most trusted and reputable moving services in the area. Our highly trained movers are here to answer any questions you may have in order to ensure a successful moving day for your business.

The most important aspect is communication. When everyone is on the same page things tend to go a little smoother. Remember it is not only your staff who needs to be aware of the move.  Make sure to contact your clients, the post office, and the general public. Once you are settled into your new space make sure to update your new location on social media, letterheads, email signatures, and business cards.  Double check everything so you have continuity across the board.
