The moving industry is a $25 billion a year industry, with the average company spending $16 million on moving each year. Although this number may vary from business to business, properly using that money becomes the number one concern for businesses. This number will typically range depending on how large the company is and how far it is moving.
If your company is in the market for long distance workspace movers, in order to preserve your moving budget, you will want to make sure that you hire only the most reputable long distance workspace movers in your area. Optim Workspace™ is a Graebel Van Lines® Company that handles all workspace consulting, workspace solutions, and workspace moving logistics for businesses. Our team of expert workspace coordinators have drafted a guideline on how to find long distance workspace movers to suit your business needs and model.
- Research. Ask fellow business owners which long distance workspace movers they have used in the past. How long ago did they use that company? Has the company received a lot of bad reviews online as of late? Check the Better Business Bureau website to see if the company has any complaints or previous lawsuits against them. Ask for recommendations and then see if that company can provide you with the workspace solution that you are looking for. Research some other companies as well to compare them to.
- Licensing. Long distance workspace movers will have to have associated licensing in order to transport goods across state lines. Proper licensing for long distance movers can be checked through their USDOT number. USDOT numbers are licenses from the U.S. Department of Transportation. You can check a long distance workspace mover’s USDOT number online through the Department of Transportation website and make sure that the company is registered. All reputable moving companies and long distance workspace moving consultants should have their USDOT number listed on their site for consumers to easily find.
- Pricing and Services. Once you have found a workspace mover who is licensed, insured, and has a great reputation, find out what long distance workspace moving assistance they offer. Optim Workspace™ offers the shortlisting and assessing the suitability of your new commercial building, extending your existing office space, logistics and planning for moving your existing office space, workspace design and project management, contract administration, construction and refurbishment evaluation and negotiation, and more. Be clear on what your company’s workspace moving goals and the workspace solutions team should be able to clarify what they can and cannot do.
