How bad can commercial moves be? Prevent the worst accidents with these simple tips.
Commercial moves leave plenty of room for major mistakes. You could end up with broken furniture, lost files, and damaged electronics, just to name a few. Handling these jobs the wrong way puts your business at risk. Prevent catastrophe with the following five tips.
It’s common to try to avoid extra costs by packing items without proper protection. However, there are benefits to putting everything in its own box. Computers, equipment, artwork, and other odds and ends are safer in boxes. They’re also easier to load, unload, and keep organized, which makes your move faster and reduces your downtime.
One easy way to get all the supplies you need is by hiring a moving company for full-service relocation. We’ll securely pack your items before loading them on the moving trucks. Once at your new location, we’ll unload boxes, move them to their intended positions, and put together or install items as needed.
Many commercial accounts allow you to run electricity, water, phone, internet, and other services in two locations for a short time. This allows you to ensure everything is in working order before you sign off on the delivery.
How long it takes to move your office impacts the price in more ways than one. You want to keep things moving on a tight schedule to minimize your costs and your operational downtime. Unfortunately, delays are easy when someone is out of the loop. It’s essential for the following people to communicate:
Lengthy delays could require storing your items temporarily, leading to extra costs and wasted time.
The challenges of moving an office from one location to the next may be too daunting for amateur movers. It’s important to hire a business with commercial moving experience. Not only can you trust the job to be fully insured in case of accidents, but you’ll have extra help ensuring your transition goes as smoothly as possible.

Mismanaging residential moves can lead to damage. Avoid problems with these handy tips.
Few things are as inconvenient as damage to flooring during residential moves. Worst case scenarios run the gamut, from an angry landlord threatening you with legal action to the need for temporary housing while you repair the damage. But accidents happen. Thankfully, there are several things you can do to lower your risks.
Most people aren’t familiar with what it takes to hire a mover. They assume it’s out of their budget and settle for relying on rental vans and volunteer. This is an easy way to wind up without the manpower you need on the big day. Without friends and family capable of lifting heavy furniture, you are almost guaranteed to gauge wood flooring and tear apart carpet. In many cases, the damage caused far exceeds any savings from doing things DIY. Before you lose your deposit - or worse - get an accurate quote from professional movers.
Going it alone? If so, look into floor protection products. There are different types of floor pads and protective barriers meant to prevent stains, tears, and scratches. Some of them also make the move easier on your back. If you hire a mover, they’ll take care of the floor protection for you.
Moving companies carry insurance and use proper equipment intended to protect your valuables and home features. A responsible moving company will go over the contract ahead of time and offer guidance in minimizing your risks. For instance, you might want to empty drawers before a move to ensure heavy furniture pieces are as light as possible. You might also be able to hire a full-service mover to handle packing and moving, to reduce your stress and the potential for damage during the move. Prevent expensive, inconvenient floor damage by hiring the professional team at Nilson Van and Storage for your residential move.
If you haven’t done a major commercial move, you might not be aware of warehousing services. What are they and who needs them? Read on for all of the answers you need, including whether or not Nilson provides these valuable services.
Warehouse services are often offered by moving companies to bridge the gap between locations. If your company is moving out before your new location is ready for moving into, where will you go? A warehouse is a great solution.
When it comes to commercial relocation, warehousing can make or break the process. If you are moving from one location to another, there could be any number of reasons you could benefit from warehousing. Not only does it help with timing gaps, but it can also help with equipment and furniture overflow. If you don’t have immediate space for everything you need to move, putting it in a warehouse can be a great option.
Both short and long-term storage options are often available. Every company is different and has different needs and being able to store items for a few days or a few months, or longer can help make it possible for a business to keep doing business.
