I want to thank you and Mayflower for making my move a pleasant experience! After living in the same home for 21 years, I was dreading the ordeal. Although excited about the future, moving was an emotional experience with lots of sentimental feelings associated with leaving the home that I raised my two daughters in. I want to compliment your team for their customer service. They carefully evaluated and estimated my moving needs and was in tune to my concerns. They responded to all my calls, concerns, and requests with urgency. I will enthusiastically recommend Nilson Van & Storage, Mayflower, to all who are moving. The move that I was so greatly dreading turned out to be a very pleasant experience. Thank you so much for your team of professionals and their dedication to customer satisfaction.

Thanks for your help. I can't say enough how happy I was with the movers. The competition casted a cloud upon ya’ll with talk about hidden charges, that could not have been farther from the truth. Things could not have gone better. The moving crew was a pleasure to work with. If you ever need a recommendation, please call me.

Really, all of the individuals that worked on the move were conscientious, very pleasant, worked long and hard. We all went through a lot to get this move onto the barge and off the island and on to the storage unit near our new home. This was not the usual move and all of these people "stepped up to the plate" to make it happen. So far what we have unpacked is in excellent condition and only one minor bit of damage to a table. Again, The crew that packed the first day and loaded and especially the driver and crew that unloaded at the storage unit deserve special recognition.

Commercial moves are a whole different ballgame than a residential move.
Commercial moves are nothing like what you’ve experienced in a residential move or even a small office relocation. They require unique planning, logistical considerations, and relocation expertise. And they include more than just packing, moving, and unloading. Take a look at what most commercial moves include.
Small and large businesses need to have a commercial moving company come and assess their needs before planning a relocation. This step is crucial to ensure the moving company has a complete understanding of the scope of the move. Not only will this allow them to provide an accurate quote, but it will help them prepare for the right manpower, trucks, and storage, if necessary.
Transportation of Equipment and Sensitive Materials
There are equipment and materials considerations with a commercial relocation. Most businesses have an enormous amount of electronic equipment that requires careful handling, so it arrives at its destination intact and ready for use. Additionally, it’s important to move sensitive materials and documents without exposure or compromise. Protecting expensive equipment and sensitive information is one of the most important things your moving company should provide.
Coordination with Your Business Needs
Business moves are often complex and monumental tasks, but they can’t put you out of business. A good moving company will coordinate move logistics with your business needs. Getting you packed, shipped, and unloaded in the shortest timeframe so you can get back to work is the priority.
At Nilson Van and Storage, our team of skilled movers has the experience to make your relocation go smoothly with as little interruption to your daily business as possible. Contact our team of experts to get the best service and support for your commercial move.
Are you looking at an office relocation in your near future? The thought of it can send some people running for the hills. But an office move doesn’t have to be torture. With a few simple tips, it can run smoothly and be a success, from start to finish. Here are three of our favorites:
Tip #1: Assign a Move Leader
Most projects have project managers, and your move is no different. Assign a manager to oversee every step. They can facilitate choosing the moving company, organize logistics, and keep everyone and everything on track.
Tip #2: Make a Plan
Whether your facility is big or small, having a plan in place is the best strategy for a successful move. And starting early is essential. Before you even start packing, determine what needs doing and who will do what. Assign tasks and keep track of the status of everything on the to-do list. The move manager should be the primary point of contact for all of these things.
Tip #3: Hire a Reliable Moving Company
The biggest hurdle to overcome when moving your place of business from one location to another is a bad moving company. Hiring the right team is critical to a successful relocation. You need to get packed up, moved, and get back to business as usual as quickly as possible. At Nilson Van & Storage, we pride ourselves on being the best in the business of relocating companies.
