Commercial relocation in San Jose
Apr 5, 2020
Commercial moving may seem quite complicated and challenging task, either you are cutting down your business or expanding it. No doubt, most companies can’t afford such a time-consuming and exhausting process without sacrificing the quality of work. Let us ensure you that commercial relocation is not that troublesome as you may think. Just follow these useful tips.
Obviously moving to a new business location is more laborious than moving to a new home. You are expected not only to find a new place, move all the stuff and working areas but to make sure your business continues running smoothly and successfully. Under such conditions moving yourself is practically impossible. That’s why it is better to hire professional movers.

Book company in advance
When it comes to commercial relocation, price matters. To get a reliable but affordable moving company, you better start searching for it as early as possible. Low-cost movers are usually the first to be booked, so make sure you act quickly. The sooner you begin looking for affordable movers – the better are your chances to hire a good-service company. We recommend to start searching in few months before your actual relocation date. Obviously, more time will give you more options.
Prepare your place and goods
First thing you should do is making a moving inventory. Create a detailed list of items you are taking with you and present it to movers. They will take only needed goods, assemble and arrange them the way you want.
Also we advise to think beforehand about possible issues that can occur as soon as your business relocation is confirmed. Such problem situations as narrow corridors, doorways or stairs, absence of elevators or lack of access to objects can cause some difficulties. A2bmovers offers superb service – in-home or video pre-estimate. Our staff will come to your company and make a visual survey of everything you want to be packed and moved. Moreover, you can call us via video link and we’ll make a pre-estimate in 15-20 minutes! That’s what busy companies need, isn’t it? We provide our clients flat rate price: our company guarantees that final price of your relocation won’t be higher than the estimated one.
In addition, don’t forget to prepare your belongings. To prevent unpleasant surprises pull out printer cartridges, fragile equipments’ supplements, etc. Mind that we may not be able to move items weighing more than 300lbs.
Choose insured and licensed companies
Pay special attention to company’s insurance, when you’re moving your business. The moving company should be properly insured in case any of your possessions break or get lost during the move. The expense then can be recovered through an insurance claim. Hiring us you won’t have to worry about your goods’ safety – our work is insured up to 1 000 000 $. All company’s belongings will be fully covered, packed and delivered carefully in time.
Furthermore, it is very important to check whether the moving company is authorised to operate in California. Movers are licensed and regulated by the Bureau of Household Goods and Services. You can simply check the company here, on Bureau’s site https://bhgs.dca.ca.gov/enforcement/lookup.shtml
If movers operate between states, they must have a number issued by the Department of Transportation. It is a license that identifies commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce. Checking it is also easy on U.S. Department of Transportation site https://safer.fmcsa.dot.gov/CompanySnapshot.aspx . All you’ve got to do – is just to enter USDOT number or the company name and get all the available information.
If you decide to choose a2bmovers, be sure we’re licensed in California Public Utilities Commission and authorised to operate in the state.
