Need to coordinate a medical practice move? It’s a big job, requiring keeping patient’s needs met, moving the medical equipment, which is often fragile and expensive, and packing and transporting everything else in the office to a new address.
In this article, we’re going to focus on our particular area of knowledge: moving and storage services. Three things you’ll want to keep in mind when choosing a Boston moving company for your medical office relocation are skills, experience, and customer service.
About Moving Medical Equipment
Because most smaller medical practices lease their medical equipment, the first step you should take in advance of any office relocation is to check with the leasing company to see what rules are in place regarding moves. Generally, the use of a professional licensed and insured moving company is required.
When selecting a moving company for your medical practice move, it’s a good idea to ask about what experience they have moving medical equipment. Ideally, the moving company will have experience moving a practice of the same type as your own. It’s always a bonus when a moving company has moved several different medical offices, as well as other businesses that have similar large scale fragile electronic equipment. Here in Boston, many of the moving companies that serve the biotechnology industries also support medical practices with their moves.
The Importance of Minimizing Practice Downtime
The key to keeping patient satisfaction levels acceptable while cutting down on the stress caused to clinicians and staff is to choose a Boston moving company that has experience achieving complicated moves on an abbreviated timeline. Experienced professionals moving quickly and efficiently ensure the disruption to your practice is kept to an absolute minimum.
