Even in the dead of winter, work must go on. And, when the time to move your business arises, you can’t always choose the time of year. When the time to relocate pops up during the winter months, there are a few additional factors to keep in mind. As expert commercial movers for Minneapolis and the surrounding areas, we’ve put together some things to keep in mind if you’re preparing to move your business before spring arrives. And, don’t hesitate to give our commercial movers a call to schedule your upcoming move!
When moving during the winter you’ll need to consider a few more factors than if you were moving during a warmer month, including:
Namely, unpredictable weather. Your sensitive office equipment needs to travel safely from your old office to your new one while avoiding snow, rain, sleet and similar weather that could cause damage. Plan to cover all walkways movers will need to use to prevent your items from getting damaged. Shovel and salt all pathways to prevent slipping, and ensure your commercial movers take necessary precautions to protect your equipment. After all, your computers and what’s held within them is essential to your business and must be handled with utmost care.
Don’t forget to keep the heat on. Both the office building you are leaving and the one you are relocating to will be prone to chilly temperatures during winter as commercial movers come in and out of the buildings. Consider keeping the heat on in both places during moving day. Not only will the commercial movers appreciate it, your employees will enjoy having their equipment and personal desk items moved into a warm environment. Cold sensitive electronics will also benefit from more temperate conditions.
Make sure to prioritize supplies that are needed for everyday operations. Set up coffee machines, computers, and phone lines before organizing materials that employees use sparingly.
Moving during the winter can even become problematic due to unforeseen complications. Be sure to listen to advice from your commercial movers during travel as they have experience in moving furniture, large equipment and electronics during the winter months.
Along with these possible complications, it is important to keep in mind that there are also many benefits to moving your business in the winter. Choice moving day selections is just one of them!
