What to Avoid During your Commercial Move

Is your business or office planning a move? Commercial moving is never easy, and there are so many different things to take care of—relocating employees, taking items out of storage, hiring movers, etc.—that can raise your stress level. With all of these things come the possibility of mistakes or oversight that can set you back and cause unneeded frustration. You don’t want your business to suffer from wasted time during a poorly-planned move—making the move as efficient as possible should be your #1 goal!

At Brandon Moving Moving & Storage, we want your business relocation, or office move, to go as smoothly and care-free as possible. Avoid these four common mistakes when planning your next business move, and get back to business fast!

Don’t procrastinate!

Planning ahead is crucial to any successful move. In the hustle-and-bustle of a busy work week, it’s easy to overlook or forget about the details in scheduling your relocation. Don’t find yourself on moving day realizing a dozen little things you forgot to plan for! To avoid this headache, we recommend contacting your moving company and scheduling your move at least three months in advance. Schedule far ahead and enjoy some peace of mind!

Don’t have unrealistic expectations.


Even the smallest office move can involve an overwhelming detail and logistical issues. Whether your business is small or large, there are steps you can take to get a realistic idea of everything you need to move so your office is ready on moving day. You can begin boxing up lesser-needed office items in advance, placing items in storage to get them out of the way, and making detailed moving checklists to stay on schedule and on top of every little necessary task. Taking these steps early will help make your move go easily and efficiently. 

Don’t get slapped with unexpected costs!

Lack of planning can also lead to extra, unneeded moving expenses. It is extremely important to start early to get quotes from different moving companies when planning your commercial move. By starting this process early and doing your homework, you will have more freedom to choose a quote that fits your budget. Lastly, be sure to get any moving quotes in writing, and review it thoroughly before signing a moving contract!

Don’t be the victim of a scam or shoddy work!

Choosing the right moving company is extremely important. Make sure to do background research on each company that gives you a quote so you can choose a company that is reputable and trusted. You don’t want unprofessional hands moving your valuable property! 

When you conduct your research, you will find that Brandon Moving & Storage’s reputation for excellence and professionalism has stood since 1965. Choose Brandon for your next commercial move, and your business will be in the right hands!
