Although balanced calendars are growing more widely accepted, regularly, we collaborate with educational institutions with strict job schedules taking place primarily between the months of June and September. We participate annually in several local school relocations of virtually every difficulty and scale. Though the wide majority of local school moving need our professionals to be on-site to relocate furniture and equipment to and from temporary storage facilities during larger construction projects, Corrigan is also capable of providing services to recently built facilities.
A Standard School Move: The Estimation
During the move out phase of a project, our team of skilled professionals is usually responsible for handling the disassembly of furniture, packing equipment and relocating items to a safe storage location. And, in spite its seemingly clear-cut procedure, there is a number of particulars that have to be addressed prior to relocating a school.
To start, and for adequate strategizing, an overall project assessment needs to take place. During this process, a commercial relocation professional from the Corrigan team will typically conduct a “walk through” of the facility or buildings included. He or she will gather information relative to the size and difficulty of the school relocation job, including the placement of all items to be relocated. Depending on the actual job itself, this may be a sequence of classrooms, offices or departments.
While the main space is reviewed, our commercial moving team of professionals will also be determining furniture and equipment included as part of the move. They’ll be asking about details, such as if any articles will be needing disassembly and reassembly as a portion of this project. If disassembly is required, for cubicles or other commercial furniture, our experts will also want to know if there’s any reconfiguration planned for reassembling. In the situation of cubicles, the parts will be put together as they originally fit the space. Throughout this walk-through procedure, technology such as computer systems, monitors, media and other articles will be shown. Our relocation professional will be noting any disconnect and reconnection services required along with the expertise necessary for each component of technology being moved. In the event of moving science laboratories, or technology labs, our experts will be absolutely cautious to items demanding customized oversight and handling, high value pieces along with any specimens or caustic collections being moved.
While our moving expert works to determine the tangible goods requiring to be relocated, he or she will also be planning added, and potentially not so obvious necessities of the project. When partnering with Corrigan, as well as any trained craftsman, there is a built-in sense of expertise that intrinsically addresses the small and frequently forgotten essentials non-experts lack. Our crew of skilled relocation and storage professionals are trained to determine the volume of items related to any storage requirements, property protection, along with critical entrance points for an extra layer of protection. We’ll be determining packing materials and supplies for example the amount of totes, stickers and boxes are needed, as well as dollies and speed packs needed. In addition, our commercial moving expert will decide the number of people required, and time involved to efficiently meet the demands of each specific project.
Once the details of the job are realized, Corrigan’s relocation expert is able to organize the details and provide a budget for the project.
School Moving: Phase I, Move Out
After the heavy-lifting of making sure all particulars are managed, it’s time for Corrigan’s relocation professionals to step in and actually do the heavy-lifting. We can boast, without a doubt, Corrigan’s movers are some of the most experienced and skilled movers the business has to offer. With our internal, hands-on educational locations and corporate instructor, our relocation crews are the best of the best.
Provided the information and details noted from the initial project walk-through, our moving crew will be equipped to do the jobs needed and keep the project on track. During the initial move out stage, our team will make sure the building is correctly protected, including securing all door jams, walls and floors in traveled locations. We will correctly label each spot and the items being transferred, complete any needed packing as well as appropriately disassemble and box up any equipment requiring our crew’s attention. Our team will arrive on-time, with the proper equipment to ensure all timetables are met.
Once our moving team has appropriately packed all articles, they will be placed into short-term storage, either on-site or, within Corrigan’s secured warehouse as decided by the school’s administration. There they will continue to be secured until any required construction projects have been handled by other trades.
School Moving: Phase II
Although Phase II of the relocation process for many schools is booked, Corrigan understands this is a speculative timeline dependent on all other vendor work is complete. If there are no interruptions in the building phase of the project, Corrigan will initiate phase II at the initially planned reserved day and time.
Really this stage of the school relocation job is reverse of phase I. Our professionals will again guarantee the building and facilities are adequately covered, protecting all traveled areas, including door jams, elevator entrances, walls and flooring. Furniture will be delivered out of storage and transferred to their appropriately designated spot. Our relocation crew will work to reassemble any furniture, before setting up technology and devices.
Once items are effectively delivered to their appropriate area, and all set up services have been accomplished, our team will conduct one last walk through with assigned school representatives to ensure that all items have been properly finished to the finest level Corrigan is revered for.
