In the halls of Congress, staffers are busily packing (or unpacking!) boxes. They’re arranging files in the filing cabinets, placing the furniture carefully, and trying to figure out, where, in the twisted halls of the Congressional offices, one goes to get rid of cardboard boxes.
Moving an office is no small job — and if you don’t have a host of eager aides and interns who are thrilled to make it happen, it gets even harder! Unfortunately, most of us don’t have a delegation of helpers when it comes time to move our small businesses or office. We’re left to do the job ourselves – while, of course, running a business!
Small Commercial Moves
Small commercial moves require a certain amount of expertise. You want to preserve the investment you’ve made in your business. Safely packaging office equipment, manufacturing equipment, or delicate scientific instruments is a skill in and of itself. Work with a Boston packaging and shipping company that has experience moving office assets, including communications equipment, computers, and other high tech items. This minimizes the risk of damage and resulting downtime from equipment being damaged in transit.
One of the benefits of hiring a packaging and shipping company to handle your small commercial move is it eliminates the risk of you being potentially liable for any accidents or injuries that may occur if your regular staff was to perform the move. This is especially true when it comes down to having staffers move office equipment, furniture, or files in their personal vehicle — if, by some horrible chance, there was to be an accident while your employee was in transit, who would be responsible for replacing items that were damaged and lost? Working with the pros means you know your items are always safe and secure, and that you’re not exposed to unnecessary risk.
