Top 5 Mistakes Business People Make When Doing a Move

1. Choosing the lowest bidder without considering other important facts – Making decisions on price alone is a bad idea. Problems happen if your mover is unprofessional and cannot estimate accurately or if you have been given an intentionally low proposal. If you fail to look closely now, you could see costly change orders after it’s too late. Know what’s included. Good proposals are detailed, with a clearly defined scope of work.

2. Underestimating the risks involved – When some people think about the risks involved in moving, they think of damaged furniture and computers – period. But this is only scratching the surface. The unseen risks of moving a business are far more substantial. These risks include loss of your confidential information; your potential liability in the event of an accident and unplanned downtime; and unexpected losses when the mover lacks proper insurance and financial resources to protect you.

3. Overpaying for move related services – These days every business must accomplish more while using fewer resources. Between hiring a professional move consultant, space planners or IT support, you can spend as much as three times what it costs to move. Many of these services can be provided at little or no additional cost from an experienced commercial mover.

4. Failing to realize that all eyes are on you – Managing a move is a big responsibility that can help or hurt your career. Consider the ripple effect of your performance. It impacts fellow employees, supervisors and upper management. Even the simplest office move affects everyone in your company. Mistakes can even result in losing your job. The good news is you don’t have to go it alone. Choose a true partner who asks the right questions and knows what to look for to help you avoid mistakes.

5. Overlooking small yet important details – When coordinating an office move, overlooking small details can create large consequences. Will your furniture fit in the new space? Have the elevators been reserved? Is construction of your new office complete? A true partner asks the right questions and helps you avoid mistakes.
