August 2019 “Move of the Month”

August 29, 2019 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsMove of the Month

CRS-Corporate Relocation Systems, Inc.’s move of the month is a Media Company in Lower Manhattan, which had to internally relocate more than 2,000 employees over four weekends.

What is the Media Company’s Profile? 

Relocation Profile:

  • Media Company
  • 40+ Truckloads of electronics (i.e. monitors), files, and furniture to move
  • 2,000+ staff to move internally
  • 4,000+ monitors to disconnect and reconnect (IT Relocation)
  • 250+ employees (5+ truckloads) moved each night for 8 nights

How Did CRS Movers Help Facilitate This Move?

August Move of the MonthOne of CRS’ largest clients reached out a few weeks prior to their major relocation project. Although this was a tight timeline, CRS assigned two key Project Managers to the move to work directly with the Media Company and begin move planning.

Relocating 2,000 staff members requires efficient and creative planning, to ensure each person is up and running by Monday morning (after each phase). CRS generated numbered floor plans for each phase that indicated who was moving where and when.

There are always changes prior to each move, so the two CRS Project Managers were prepared for the client to send over any final seating arrangements for staff a day or two prior to each phase.

Was This Move By CRS Movers a Success for the Media Company?

CRS’ IT Team arrived on site just a ½ hour before CRS’ Move Team to begin disconnecting all workstations so they had a head start, as movers placed bubble monitor bags over each screen and placed all electronics (keyboard, mouse, phone, etc.) in an oversized plastic bag.

Since all monitors, electronics, crates, and personal items were labeled with a preprinted CRS label, all the CRS Movers had to do was to place all contents at the new workstations, which CRS Project Managers posted preprinted placards above.

Each weekend, 500+ staff were moved on Friday night, leaving the Media Company’s IT Team and the CRS IT Team to troubleshoot any network or server problems throughout the day on Saturday, allowing the Media Company’s Staff to be up and running Monday morning.

More than 2,000 staff and 4,000 monitors moved, and there were no damages or casualties to report.
