2. What is the reputation of the commercial mover? If in doubt, ask for references. Seek out businesses with similar needs that have used the movers in the past. Inquire about their customer service, how frequently and clearly they communicate the business relocation plan, and how smoothly they accomplished the move.
3. Do you require an office relocation specialist? If your office includes the latest in high-tech equipment, you will want the assurance of knowing your business movers are experienced in handling an office move with sensitive computers, electronics and servers, . Movers entrusted with important documents must be able to deliver them safely and securely while respecting confidentiality.

4. What preliminary packing will be expected of you and your employees? Will the movers be responsible for the entire move from start to finish, or will you disconnect your own computers, boxed your own books, and empty your own drawers before the movers even arrive? Upon reaching the new location, will the movers unpack your belongings and set up the office or will that be your responsibility? Generally, the more the movers do the more smoothly the relocation will go.

8. When will your move take place? Reserve your chosen business movers for your office relocation as soon as you know the date(s) of your move. Preferably, make the booking 2-3 months in advance to ensure availability. If the movers are not available on your selected date(s), you will still have time to reschedule the relocation or make alternative arrangements.
9. Can you get a free quote for the office relocation? If so, is the quote an estimate or a guarantee? You are likely dealing with an estimate if your quote is given over the phone or online.
