Commercial moving makes a large portion of business for larger moving companies all over the United States. While many individuals and families may have the option of the do-it-yourself move by renting a truck and handling the move themselves, this is rarely the case for small businesses, corporations, and organizations. This is where professional commercial movers come in handy by offering a wide variety of services to clients of all shapes and sizes.
Commercial Moving Companies
A few things that you should expect from any qualified commercial moving company include the following offerings and expertise:
- State licensing, BBB approval, DOT certification, AMSA membership, and other qualifications that speak to their abilities and experiences.
- A wide enough selection of services that cater to whatever moving requirements you have.
- A professional and knowledgeable staff that is able to thoroughly explain what they offer and answer any questions you may have.
- Proven track record of success, in terms of both safety and customer satisfaction
- Up to date tracking and logistics technology to do the job efficiently and keep you apprised of your delivery every step of the way.
- Insurance coverage sufficient to cover all of your furniture, inventory, records and any other assets you may be moving.

What to Expect from a Commercial Mover
There are a host of commercial moving services to choose from so it’s very helpful if you are able to spell out exactly what you need before contacting a prospective mover. Any qualified mover should be able to understand and deliver on the promise of safely transporting everything you need moved with careful attention to detail and complete the job in a timely fashion. Time is almost always an important factor when moving, but it’s even more important with commercial moving since it helps prevent any interruption of the services they provide.

As you can see, you’ll have a lot to consider before starting your commercial move. Finding a reliable moving company by using online resources to search for movers nearby can be helpful for local moves. Call the companies that appeal to you most and gather a few quotes before deciding on whom to hire. If you have any concerns, contact the BBB or DOT to see if the company is approved through both organizations. You should also ask movers about their insurance policy and what type of protection it provides for commercial moves. If it isn’t full coverage, you may want to ask the commercial movers if you can purchase additional insurance.
