If you’re planning to move your business, you need a mover that will do more than stuff your papers into boxes and roll your desks onto a truck. You need a business partner that understands and respects your time, your belongings and your budget.
In this post we’ll take a look at the top five things you should ask about when considering an office or commercial mover.
You want a mover who’ll provide peace of mind, top-notch customer service, warehousing and storage options, and the most up-to-date moving technology. To find that Washington, D.C. mover, here are 5 questions to ask before you hire the moving company.
1. Are you Able to Provide Business Continuity?
The mover should be able to pack, ship and set up routers and IT systems to get you up and running with as little interruption as possible.
Do they provide a move plan that takes into account your specific business needs and works on your schedule?

2. Do you Have Short Term Storage Available?
Your mover should offer long- and short-term options. Always ask about climate control which is crucial to safely storing most items. Make sure that you—and only you–can have access to your stored items whenever you need them.
3. Do you rent out space or control your own warehouse? Is the warehouse staffed and under surveillance?
Ask if your mover uses the latest in bar coding technology, separate vaults for magnetic media to avoid mingling of data, and fire and theft protection.
