While the concept is basically the same, performing commercial and residential moves are very different from each other. If you happen to have both commercial and residential properties, knowing the difference can help you organize a move with minimal stress.
Your expert movers at Around Town Movers shares the differences between commercial and residential moving below.
Moving out of a home or apartment is relatively simple; you pack your belongings and furniture, hire movers to take everything to the new place, and then unpack. Residential moving can be done with just a few people, and unpacking can be done at your pace. Assuming that you’ve already secured your new home, the only concern is making sure all your property has arrived undamaged and that everybody has a chance to pick their rooms.
One of the challenges of residential moving is getting the valuable and fragile pieces like pianos, antique furniture and glass pieces into the new place undamaged. Hiring movers with years of experience with such items is critical. Having the peace of mind knowing that you won’t have to deal with broken items, even if they’re insured, eliminates stress and lets you focus on the other parts of your relocation.
Whether you’re operating a small shop or a large-scale organization, relocating a business is a more complicated process and requires experienced office movers to ensure a smooth transition. Moving into a new commercial property needs to be fast and precise to minimize loss of productivity. Ideally, the office furniture, lighting and IT equipment should be installed by the time you move in.
There’s also the concern with moving large pieces of machinery, computers and other sensitive items. Some of these need to be in certain conditions at all times and, therefore, have to be moved carefully. Experienced movers take these factors into account when we move such equipment and coordinate with property managers to make sure your move is as smooth and stress-free as possible.
