A company relocation can be especially difficult and expensive. Here’s how to cut some of the cost and hassle.
Moving isn’t cheap, whether it concerns money or time, so it’s nice to be able to find ways to cut costs during a company relocation. Consider these two ways to save money when you are getting ready for the big move:
#1: Schedule the Move Early
Moving an entire company is an enormous undertaking, with a lot of necessary planning. This planning is essential to save money for two primary reasons. First, it allows you to get the best deals on moving costs and rates. By planning the move well in advance, you have plenty of time to shop around for the best moving services and get the best price. Second, planning well in advance helps prevent last-minute surprises and unnecessary delays. Delays and surprises never save money during a move.
#2: Hire a Professional Moving Company
When you first get a quote for the cost of moving your company, you might experience sticker shock. But before you think about handling your move yourself, understand that it will almost always cost you more money than hiring a moving company. The reason for this is simple: efficiency.
Professional movers specialize in the work of moving. Your company also specializes in something, too. If you’re in the business of selling car and home insurance to individuals, can you sell business insurance too? Maybe, but you wouldn’t be able to do it as efficiently as an insurance agency that focuses only on selling business insurance.
So you and your employees might be able to handle the move, but it’s unlikely you can manage the move as efficiently as a professional mover could. And even if you could, who’s going to cover your workers’ regular job duties while they fill up boxes, load moving trucks and unpack? Are you going to hire additional workers or pay overtime for your regular employees to complete the move? If so, there’s a good chance you’ll spend more money on those extra costs than just hiring a moving company. And the move will be a lot less stressful when someone else handles it.
