Whether you’re upgrading to a new location, a new home, or a larger office within your home, it’s likely that movers can make your transition easier. How? Let’s take a look.
No matter if you’re moving across town or just upstairs, you’re going to need to move your work surface. That means hauling a heavy desk all over the place until you get it settled. That’s rough work, and it’s so much easier to get help from the professionals.
Why? Because they have the tools they need to take apart your furniture. Can’t take it apart? There are several different types of dollies that movers carry with them to move heavy furniture; something you’re unlikely to have. In every business, we pick the right tool for the job. It’s no different here. Movers know the tricks of their trade because it’s what they do. These professionals will get your furniture to its destination in one piece—or assemble it there when it arrives.
If you run a home business, it’s likely that you have a very high stack of files. Whether they’re digital or hard copies, hiring a moving company can help you keep them in order.
For those with hard copies or filing cabinets full of contracts, a moving company can easily slide a lift beneath the cabinets, tape them shut, and carry them out to the truck. If it’s an across-town move, this is the fastest way to secure your files.
Does your business run on digital files? Many moving companies offer digital storage protection. They back up your data for you prior to the move and deliver all copies of it, and the originals, to your new destination. This keeps your information safe, secured, and restorable in case of any issues through transportation.
Are you expanding as well as moving? This happens to most home offices that are becoming standard offices. If you have many pickups, say, for a merger, you may need to grab merchandise or furniture from multiple locations. This can be a headache, especially for those without access to large trucks.
Never fear, your movers have you in hand. Easy as counting to three, you can schedule movers to arrive at each location on different days. They can add to your current shipment and package it all together for one large delivery. This makes it so much simpler than racing all over town yourself.
If you decide to pack and move yourself, you are looking at a significant increase in downtime. This means that your business is offline longer, losing more profits and costing you wages. Whether you’re self-employed or just a small company with a handful of employees, downtime is significant.
Movers will expedite the process. Most across-town moves with good weather conditions take many hours. This includes packing, transportation, and unpacking. If you schedule this for Friday and Saturday, you’ll probably be back in business by Monday morning. Wouldn’t that be great?
Possible Tax Write-Offs
Every company would love the chance to write off another bit on its taxes. So why not use a mover to do it? Moving costs may be taken from income taxes, allowing you to deduct more than you would typically. This is an excellent opportunity to save a little money during tax time, at the cost of spending a little bit more upfront. Check with your state laws for more information.
