You may need to move your warehouse for a number of reasons. This may include reasons such as business relocation, moving to larger premises, opening additional premises, or reaching the end of property rental. A warehouse removal job is a more complicated process than most other commercial moves. So, it is important to hire the services of the right commercial removal company. If your relocation is not handled professionally, you risk product damage, project delays, or other issues.
The right commercial moving company should provide the following services to ensure smooth and efficient warehouse removal.
A warehouse removal job is a big move and requires thorough, professional planning to ensure success and safety. The moving company should minimise downtime and allow your team to continue functioning even when the move is taking place. They should send their consultants to your premises to gather all the required information before creating a plan for your move. This should be followed by a customised quotation for the move.
2. Taking Care of Packing & Preparation
Proper packing plays an important role in ensuring safe and efficient warehouse removal. The right commercial moving company will take the following steps:
- Use the right packing materials
- Preparing your items for transportation
- Decommissioning and recommissioning of any machinery
- Use of specialised equipment for the safe and secure moving of equipment
The right company will pack as much as required and provide flexible services based on your requirements.
3. Removing Machinery
A warehouse removal task usually involves the removal of plant equipment and heavy machinery. Such machinery needs to be handled by specialised removal requirements. This means, not every commercial moving company may be capable of handling your warehouse relocation. It may also be required that the company have engineers who can dismantle and assemble the machinery if required.
It may also be required that the company have specially designed heavy-duty moving vehicles. This should help make it safer to transport the machinery.
4. Additional Moving Services
A warehouse removal company should further provide additional services based on your unique requirements. These additional services can include:
- Storage services
- Shredding services
5. Keeping Downtime to the Minimum
A warehouse removal job usually means that your warehouse can have downtime for the duration of the move. The move can halt your operations especially when it is required to remove your racking. When it comes to warehouses, time is of great essence to your business.
You should look for a warehouse moving company that has the resources, experience, and skills required to move your business while causing minimal disruption to your operations. Make sure they check how long they have been in business. More experienced companies have proven systems in place to ensure a smooth move.
So, consider all these points when choosing a warehouse removal company. As mentioned above, a warehouse or factory relocation is a complicated job and requires specialist handling.
