Three More Tips for Choosing Office Movers in Orlando

Check Credentials

Now that you have explored a few moving companies and read their reviews, you can move onto some of the more pressing aspects of choosing the right office movers. It is essential they have all the proper credentials to not only lawfully operate a moving company, but also that they have the certifications and licenses required by state and local governments. Clearly, they will need to a have a business license, but also check that they have the proper licenses to operate their moving trucks and any specialized equipment, for instance. These checks will guide you towards a reputable moving company rather than some Joe Schmoe with a pickup truck claiming to be a professional mover. This will protect your money, time, and belongings.   

How Is Their Customer Service?

First impressions go a long way. Once you have entered the stage where you begin calling local moving companies to learn more about their business and/or to get a commercial moving quote, pay attention to your first impression of them and follow your instincts. Generally, your first interaction with a moving company will either be requesting an online quote, or calling the company to speak with them. Your first interaction can be indicative of future interactions, so you’ll want to make sure the staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to answer any questions you have. Here are some things to consider:

  • If they didn’t have an immediate answer to a question, were they willing to do some research and get back to you?
  • Were they friendly?
  • Did they offer a general explanation of their procedures?
  • Did they explain what the moving quote and costs cover?

These are just some of the things to keep in mind during your initial interaction with a moving company and their management staff.

What Makes Them Different from the Rest?

Finally, moving companies are a dime a dozen here in Orlando. As you’re researching companies and comparing them, look for characteristics that make one company stand out from the rest. For instance, do they offer a fleet of state-of-the-art moving trucks for a safer, more efficient move? Do they offer storage facilities for objects that can’t be moved into your new location right away? Do they offer packing services to make your commercial move even more streamlined? Do they manage all aspects of a commercial move with innovative, comprehensive software to ensure each and every aspect of a move is accomplished in the most efficient way possible? Are they able to uninstall, move, and reinstall everything from office furnishings and medical equipment to an entire computer network? Do they employ fully-vetted and highly trained moving crews who are friendly, professional, and trustworthy? Look for the unique characteristics that make a moving company stand out from the others.
