Streamline Your Corporate Relocation05/29/2018For many businesses, the time comes when relocating your company makes sense. Whether you're looking for a bigger workforce, lower operating costs, or tax benefits, moving becomes necessary for your corporate future. But if you're like most COOs or CEOs, and the thought of picking up your facilities, your homes, and your lives is just more than you can comprehend, click your heels three times and call A-1 Freeman Moving Group. While we can't literally pick up houses and put them down in Oz, or wherever you want to call home, we can manage your corporate move from beginning to end--with one move coordinator to act as the point person for all aspects of your move. The single point of contact concept has caught on with health care and car buying, so why not with corporate relocation? You'll have one name to remember--that of the highly experienced individual who handles everything from confirming dates to the tools needed to disassemble your office cubes. Office Moving Even if you're not moving the water cooler and potted plants, moving your corporate offices involves relocating your records, and frequently your IT systems--even if you're getting new modules and furniture. Your move coordinator will work with the appropriate staff to arrange for taking the office down if you're moving your cubes, desks, chairs, and those plants, with your IT department to ensure your equipment is properly backed up, packed, and reassembled at the new site, and professionally and safely store your equipment and inventory during transit. A-1 Freeman Moving Group also offers record management that is HIPAA approved with state of the art technology to retrieve your data quickly. The actual move is usually the most stressful part of the relocation process--the thought of packing up boxes at the office and at home is overwhelming for even the most organized souls, but when you hire the right moving company, all you have to do is meet with your move coordinator to determine the packing supplies you'll need, the crews necessary to pack, break down, and load, and figure out how this will all work within your relocation budget. You'll also have the opportunity to include specialty crew, like IT experts who know how to safely move your servers and ensure your cabling is right once you're in the new office. The same concept applies if you have heavy equipment or machinery to move--experts come on to the moving team to ensure a safe, non-eventful process--from breaking down to re-assembly and testing to ensure everything is in good working order. Employee Relocation Asking your employees to relocate their families is huge; you need to do whatever you can to ensure that you're doing everything possible to make the process easy--you don't want to lose your valued staff because you didn't pay attention to the details. A big part of the personal move is selling a house and buying a new one--if at all possible, work with a corporate relocation company to ease the transition. By utilizing Sirva’s Moving Extras program, transferees can obtain real estate services, such as marketing the transferee’s home, finding a new home and help locating temporary housing while using A-1 Freeman Moving Group as the household goods relocation provider. Then, your employees can focus on the important stuff, like getting their families wrangled into new schools and soccer teams, and figuring out their new way to the office. When you offer your employees this level of support for their move, they can rest assured-- knowing that the details of packing up and loading trucks, and then unloading and putting the kids’ bunkbeds back together--are under control. Full service moving really means just that--from estimating the rolls of tape to put the boxes together, to handling the details of customs if your move is international. Working with a truly professional moving company gives you the bandwidth to focus on what's next for your company, with the confidence of knowing the relocation is in good hands.
