How to Choose the Perfect Bay City Moving Company to Move Your Business

So the time has come to relocate your business. You've meticulously weighed the move, done your due diligence, found a new location, and are set to make the move. There's only one thing left: choosing the ideal moving company to handle the relocation. So, how do you select the right Bay City commercial mover for your business? After all, not every moving company is up to the task.

A mover experienced in workplace relocations will work with you to develop a detailed action plan to help cut your company’s downtime. No matter the size and scope of your move, the right movers will make sure you have a smooth moving experience resulting in a cost-effective overall relocation expense.

It’s important to thoroughly research before choosing a mover. There are many movers to select from out there, yet only a small fraction of those are truly competent and skilled in office and industrial relocations.

Here are some suggestions to help facilitate the journey of finding and choosing more manageable for you:


Get references

Ask the mover to provide multiple references of recent moves they have completed for other businesses that are in your industry. Some movers who will advertise themselves as Bay City commercial movers primarily only handle household moves. These companies will be incapable to offer any references of similar businesses that they’ve moved recently. Asking for references will certainly help you differentiate the pretenders from the experts.


Certificate of insurance

Ask the mover if they will provide a Certificate of Insurance on their insurance coverage, listing your company and/or the building owner as “additional insured.” This provides you with crucial protection against damage to property and/or workers compensation claims. This is a common request. If the mover is reluctant or declines, they might lack a strong safety track record or lacks experience in commercial moving and should be avoided.


Plan of action

Once you conduct a pre-move survey with the prospective movers, require them to give you a detailed action plan along with their cost estimate. The plan should give important information, like estimated number of trucks, men, and support equipment they will commit to your project, how the move will flow, and the estimated duration from start to finish. Ask yourself: Does it make sense, and does it align with my goals and expectations?


Hourly rates vs. net cost

Do not make the mistake of solely focusing on the hourly rate. There are many examples of companies selecting a moving company based on the lowest hourly rate only to find out their move lasted much longer than estimated. This will cause the final cost to be higher than what would have transpired with a more exerpienced and skilled commercial moving company. If a mover’s quote is too good to be true, it most likely is.

If you stick to these steps and drill down into the details, you will be able to choose a Bay City commercial mover that rises above the rest. Expect to get a smooth, efficient, high-quality yet affordable relocation, and don’t compromise on quality.
