What is the Commercial Moving Cost?
Commercial relocations are a huge undertaking even for professional movers. There is so much involved and that needs attention during this type of move that it is worth every bit of the cost that it takes to hire a moving company for help. Every mover sets their own rates for the services they offer. However, these rates are based on the amount of time, labor and other specific details involved with that particular service. Since commercial moves are usually more time consuming and detailed, they tend to cost a little more than residential moving services.
Giving an exact price for commercial moving services before a mover has evaluated the size of your business and received certain details, is nearly impossible. Nevertheless, it is said that the average cost to relocate an office building with a size of about 1,500sqft costs anywhere from $750- $4,500, while a commercial building around 10,000sqft may cost anywhere from $5,000 to $30,000 depending on the amount of files, office equipment and furniture there is to move. The more large pieces there are to transport, the more it will likely cost.

How Office Equipment, Furniture and Files are Safely Moved
When professionals come in to move your office equipment or furniture, they will carefully disassemble it if it’s too large. Once it is completely disassembled, the movers will protect each piece with packaging wrap or moving blankets. Some of the smaller pieces may even go into a clearly labeled box. The movers will keep track of every piece so that they can reassemble the large furniture, appliance or piece of office equipment once it is safely delivered to the new location.
Trying to keep files organized and together amidst a move isn’t an easy task especially without a systematic, fool proof plan or the right moving equipment at your disposal. Professional movers will keep your filing cabinets intact, securing the drawers and lifting them onto the truck with a forklift or other type of equipment so that none of the cabinets’ contents get out of order or become lost.
Hire a Mover for Commercial Relocation
There is no doubt about it, hiring a commercial mover to help you with your relocation is the best thing you could possibly do. As the person running such a large business or office, you’ll have enough on your plate as it is due to the move. Allow professionals to handle the laborious and time consuming tasks of packing and unpacking, loading and unloading, and transporting and you’ll find that you’re commercial relocation is completed with less risk involved and in a much timely matter.
