The Risk of Hiring Super Cheap Movers for Your Office Relocation
January 12, 2023 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsCorporate Moving
Packing up and relocating your business’ office space can be a costly and timely experience. There are the moving fees, packing fees, set up fees, and the cost of lost business hours. As you try to juggle all the different moving parts and find the best option for your business, you may find yourself leaning toward the cheapest option available.
However, when choosing a relocation service company, there are a few risks you will want to consider before going with the one that will burn the smallest hole in your pocket. CRS Moving & Storage offers affordable and holistic relocation services for an affordable price without the risks or consequences.
3 Possible Consequences of Hiring Super Cheap Movers for Your Office Relocation
A super cheap price tag usually comes with a couple of caveats. Why is the price so low? What services are actually included in the relocation package? When browsing your local moving company options, three possible consequences of hiring the cheapest movers you can find for your office relocation include:
Higher Risk of Lost or Broken Items
Lower prices mean your relocation company is spending less money on the protection of your items. Unlike CRS Moving & Storage, they likely will not be providing moving materials, like padding paper or specially-sized boxes. Relocating your office space is a multipart process with a lot of different components, and it’s easy for something to get lost or broken in the process.
In the long run, it’s worth paying a little more money upfront for better service and perks, like inventory services. You may save money in the beginning, but having to find the cash to repair and replace your important work tools can leave you with a higher bill in the end.
One of the hardest parts of moving your office—whether it’s across the street or across the country—is ensuring you are not losing any precious business hours. It’s a costly enough expense to pack up the desks and computers, but to lose out on valuable work time because your moving company is taking longer than expected can severely impact your business. Your employees and customers would all benefit from a moving company that works with your schedule, not against it.
By skimping out and going with the cheapest relocation moving company you can find, you likely will be stuck with their schedule, no matter if it’s a weekday or if it works for your business or not.
Ultimately Requires More Time and Energy On Your End
When you partner with a full-scale moving and storage company, you are not just paying for the relocation process. For example, customers who partner with CRS Moving & Storage can expect the following provided benefits:
- Provided protective items, like padded paper and boxes
- Inventory management
- IT equipment take down and set up
- Liquidation services
- Storage services
- Climate-controlled vans
The cheaper the moving company, the fewer perks offered, meaning you are not likely to find a company that offers packaging, has a climate-controlled van, or offers qualified IT equipment and technology setup services.
