How to Plan and Calculate Moving Supplies for a Commercial Move

January 18, 2023 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsCorporate Moving

When planning your move, one of the most important parts of the process is calculating what supplies you will need. This helps you stay organized and prepared for the big day while also making the process easier. When working with our experienced CRS Moving & Storage team, we support you from start to finish, including the packing process. We can supply you with all the materials you may need so you don’t spend money on unnecessary costs. 

With our 20 years of experience working on commercial moves, we have extensive knowledge of the packing process and how many supplies you need to relocate your business. We consider the size of your space, the items you need to move, and the areas you’re packing. We strive to relocate your business successfully and efficiently so you can have a stress-free experience. We understand moving can be overwhelming, so we are here to help you every step of the way.

What to Consider When Calculating Commercial Moving Supplies

Every commercial move is unique and requires a different amount of packing supplies. Therefore, before moving day, we take the time to go through all your items and plan the materials you need to effectively move your office within your budget. During this process, we consider the following:

Types of Rooms 

Offices typically have a variety of rooms, including workspaces, file rooms, conference rooms, and break rooms. These spaces have different furniture and other items that contribute to calculating the packing supplies you need. For instance, conference rooms often have large tables, several chairs, and televisions that all require their own packing solutions, while filing rooms have less furniture and more cabinets. 

Size of Each Space

We have worked on moves of all sizes, so we also consider the square footage of your space when calculating needed packing materials. Typically, larger rooms like workspaces and lobbies require more boxes than smaller ones, such as closets and break rooms. 

Type of Business

The amount of packing supplies you need may depend on the type of business you have. Companies that have a lot of technology, like computers, televisions, and tablets, may need more supplies than those that don’t. Or, perhaps you have a more minimalist office with less furniture. In this case, you may not need as many supplies as a company that has a more packed space. Ultimately, we cater the number of supplies to your business’s specific needs.

Size of Your Team

Depending on the size of your business, you may need more or less moving supplies. Companies with more employees have more desks, chairs, files, and other supplies, and they also use larger office spaces. During the planning process, we consider this to estimate the packing materials you will need accurately.

What Packing Supplies Do You Need?

When moving your business, staying organized and prepared is the key to a successful move. We can help you by providing all the packing supplies you need to safely transport your valuable items to your new space. Depending on what you need to pack, you may need the following packing materials:

  • Various-sized boxes
  • Packing tape
  • Paper and bubble wrap
  • Markers
  • Labels
  • Tarps
  • Stretch wrap
  • Crates

We treat all your items with the utmost respect and pack them carefully to ensure they remain damage-free. Our compassionate movers always want your business to succeed, so we also provide liquidation services to get rid of items you don’t need, which allows you to save money on packing materials.
