When a company decides to move premises, they have a couple of options: do they do it themselves or do they use a business relocation service – someone to do it for them?
While enterprises big and small think they can save money and get it done quicker themselves, that’s very rarely the case. Let’s look at three reasons why moving a business is better with a little help from your local professionals.
1) They’re reliable
We all know that time is money. Any period when your business isn’t not doing what it does best is revenue down the drain. In today’s world, the exchange rate between time and money might be steeper than ever before, so you’ll need to move business premises as quickly and efficiently as possible.
That won’t happen if your removalists are late, ineffective and go over budget. When shopping around for business removalists, using a name you know offers a certain security. At Allied Pickfords, for instance, our reliability extends into better budget planning, too. There are no hidden extras lurking under the surface because we provide a written quote and detailed project plan for the relocation.
Well, we didn’t get a reputation over almost four centuries by slacking off.
2) They’re well resourced
Contrary to what some believe, you’re likely to spend more money doing a business move yourself – especially if your staff are helping out.
The World Green Building Council found that around 90 per cent of all a business’s costs are related to paying staff members. If your employees are lending a hand with carrying boxes, you’re not getting the most out of their skills, and paying for that privilege.

But that’s the exact job of your moving experts. Our staff have the time, the training and the resources to do the job effectively and efficiently, while our full-service project management oversees the whole move.
3) They’re experienced
While we’re on the topic, there’s a way to move office and a way not to. Do you know the difference? Your friendly neighbourhood moving specialists do.
From the people who will be moving your equipment to the ones who will be disconnecting and reconnecting your IT infrastructure, right up to the project managers, everyone is fully trained and experienced in getting things done quickly and efficiently.
That means we know a fair few tricks of the trade, and will be willing to share them. Well, you do learn a few things after almost 400 years in the industry!
