Don’t DIY That Office Move: 5 Reasons to Always Hire a Moving Company

OMX blog cover

It’s tempting to pack and go as fast as you can when you’re moving your business to new premises. After all, downtime is an expensive affair for any company.

Yet, you can’t afford to rush things during an office relocation. Rather, take some time to plan carefully, and always enlist the services of a professional office moving team.

Here are five reasons why you’ll be so glad you did.

1. Professional Movers Save You Time and Money

An experienced and efficient team of movers is worth every cent you spend on hiring them. They’ll be able to orchestrate your move far quicker than your inexperienced, stressed employees.

A dedicated project coordinator will help fine-tune every aspect of your move, ensuring the least disruption during your corporate move.

Your employees can continue with their daily tasks right up until the last minute, saving you from losing any more revenue than you absolutely have too. They’ll also be back up and running much quicker when you reach your destination. 

2. Attention to Detail

It’s normal for everyone involved to experience stress and anxiety during an office mover. After all, change is one of the most stressful experiences for employees.

Stressed people can’t perform at their best. During a move, that means things are inadvertently left behind, damaged in haste, or packed improperly. 

3. Insurance Benefits

For professional movers, an office move is all in a day’s work. Their calm demeanor ensures all your equipment is expertly packed, labeled, and where it’s meant to be.  

Accidents can happen during any move. That’s why reputable moving companies have insurance for any eventuality. 

If anything does go wrong, you’re assured of a prompt settlement or replacement of your damaged items. There’s no haggling with your own insurance company, and no increased premiums because of your claim.  

4. Sharing the Load

Professional movers have all the equipment, stamina and know-how to move heavy objects safely. You needn’t worry about injuries to yourself or your employees while moving bulky boxes and equipment.

Avoid the liabilities and risks associated with allowing your employees to assist with moving your furniture and equipment by hiring office movers.  

5. Peace of Mind

There’s no doubt that moving is an exceptionally stressful activity. It could take weeks for your employees and operations to get back up to full speed again. 

With a professional team of movers by your side, you’re ensuring that your business and your people undergo the least possible disruption. Thanks to their expertise, you can take it all in your stride and focus on the your office move instead.

You’ll have enough to do while arranging new telephone lines, sorting out the cleaning of both offices, and notifying everyone about your new address too. 

Rather spend your time with these more important aspects of your move and leave the packing and heavy lifting to the pros.

"I wanted to let you know what a great job your crew did yesterday. Just really warm, helpful and efficient. The move went smoothly on both ends and they even added an extra stop for us when requested, and helped our CEO rearrange her office to accommodate a piece of furniture that initially seemed not to fit. Just a great experience all around. I will definitely recommend OMX to others. Well done and thanks!"

Hogan Lovells
"I’ve managed countless moves for Hogan Lovells and this was one of the smoothest moves, if not the smoothest move I have ever been involved with. Trust was the most important factor for choosing OMX. There were a lot of moving parts to our move (things to dispose of, other things to be donated) and OMX handled all of this accurately and easily."

David M. August 2021

"I have to say your OMX team was unbelievable. They were professional, responsive, hard-working, and above all, they were the best. All of my personnel were grateful for your team’s work. I would highly recommend your company to any agency that has to move. Thank you again."

"Just wanted to let you know that your team did a terrific job with our internal moves last week. They showed up right on schedule, with the equipment needed, and very efficiently got the job done. They even went out of their way to add some extra screws to tighten up a desk leg that needed some work. They were a pleasure to work with!"
