How to Guard Against Wall & Carpet Damage During Business Relocation

Want some tips on how to prevent damages during your commercial moves/business relocations? Consider this list of simple steps you can take to keep carpets, walls, doors, equipment, and office furniture safe while moving:

• Plan ahead.

It’s always a good idea to be prepared for any move, and it’s especially important when it’s your office or business. Before the move, measure all doors and spaces, and then measure the objects you will move to make sure everything will fit. Get adequate and trustworthy help. Most business owners choose to hire a moving company to ensure the safety of their items during a move. Research commercial moving companies to find the best fit for your business.

• Acquire floor coverings.

The best way to protect your floor or carpet during moves is to get floor coverings to place on the floor before moving heavy equipment or office furniture. Moving blankets, plywood sheets, plastic sheet carpet protectors, and flattened cardboard boxes are all items you can utilize to protect the floor space.

• Protect door frames and walls.

Towels, tape, and corner and doorway pads can all be used to help protect from damage while moving. Blankets and covers can also be used over furniture to protect the edges and corners, which will also keep the walls from getting nicked or damaged.

• Hire professional movers.

The best way to ensure your floors, walls, door frames, and office equipment remain damage-free is to hire a commercial moving company. Professional movers know how to move your business the right way—effectively and efficiently, avoiding damage and injury to your business building, furniture and other items.

In addition to having the proper manpower for the job, a professional moving company will have the equipment and tools necessary. This is important for a large-scale commercial business move.
