Office Moving in Tulsa: Expectations vs. Reality

Office MovingIf you are planning to move your offices to a alternate location in Tulsa in the near future, have you thought about the reality of what it's going to entail? Many people who have not moved in the past (or at least for a long time) may forget about how much is involved. Sometimes expectations do not match reality when it comes to time and costs.

So, what kind of realities should you really encounter during an office move in Tulsa? Let's review at what you might expect and what you'll probably experience.

Expectation: You Can Move in a Short Amount of Time

Just because you have a fairly small company, you may think you can put together an office moving schedule within a 4 or 5 days. In reality, you're going to need at least two months to orgainze your office move. With so many different items to ponder and carry out, you will end up being overwhelmed if you put off planning up to a few days ahead of moving day.

Start considering what you will have to plan, and keep up your agenda to the day of your move. Plans ofttimes change between when you start your list two months earlier to the morning before the relocation occurs.

Expectation: Hiring a Cheap Company to Move Your Office

The old notion you get what you pay for is most of the time more than true. Your expectation is perhaps one where you think you can contract a cheap mover and still get great service. The reality is, this is not always the case.

Some moving companies like this don't have well-trained employees, meaning potential furniture damage. You're going to need to vet the best moving companies to ensure you're getting top notch service.

Referrals are good to read, and you can research quickly online. 

Expectation: Not Needing a Place to Store Stuff

Maybe you believe you can move every item at the same time. In most cases, it could involve more than one moving trip.

When you possess additional items that require moving, storage could become necessary. A mover should offer you offsite storage for anything requiring storing before the move completes. This may mean files you need to keep separate from your office equipment.

Moving all your files with furniture may mean your business data is breeched in all the chaos. Don't automatically assume the little items are going to stay completely organized during an office move in Tulsa without some safeguards.

Expectation: You Can Relocate Your IT Equipment by Yourself

Lots of businesses try to save some dough by relocating all their IT equipment without help. Doing so isn't very rational when it involves bulkier items. Not only can moving big items without help cause injury if your employees don't understand how to lift properly, but it could also lead to damage to expensive equipment you need. Always hire a professional mover to deal with your IT equipment, including setup. The same goes for other big work equipment that requires expert lifting and packing.
