We are living in unprecedented times, many of us now waking up to understand the repercussions of our voting decisions in the states we live in. Immigrants continue to flock to the United States for its reputed freedoms, yet tyranny rains down in many cities across the nation where government officials overstep their boundaries and impose new rules that take away our freedoms. 2021 has seen some of the most oppressive new rules imposed to control the virus. But, is the virus the biggest problem the people have at this point? Now businesses with over one hundred employees must make a decision to imposed vaccination requirements for employment of face major fines. Ultimately, this will drive businesses out of the states where the local government does not fight back against these rules.
Luckily for some states, their governors are fighting back. That is not the case in New York or California where residents have faced some of the strictest rules in the nation. If faced with difficult decisions, you may have no other option than to relocate your business in another state. It’s not an easy decision to make, nor a simple task to pull off, but a professional business mover can help you plan and coordinate all the stages of packing, moving and setting up in a new location to make the move go smoothly with the least amount of disruption to your staff.
Finding out what the costs are and what the move entails could be a first step in helping you make the decision about how you want to proceed. Getting quotes from a few moving companies in your area should give you a game plan and an understanding of what can be accomplished within your budget.
What to Expect:
Normally, when you invite a moving company to give you a quote, they will visit your current office space and take an itinerary of the furniture and technology that needs to be moved. That will give them an idea of the labor required to pack and move everything and how many trucks will be needed to move it.
If you need to put some furniture or equipment in storage, they may hold it at a nearby facility or transport it to a storage facility near the new location. Costs of storage will be calculated for the duration. Sometimes a company will offer a month of free storage.
Then they must consider whether the new location is move-in ready or will it require construction or wiring to accommodate a network or equipment prior to installation. The services at the new location should be evaluated to see if they fit your business’ current needs or if you will need to install wiring prior to setup.
Once you agree to a price, the moving company will provide a schedule that works around your office hours and the rules of your current building for the least amount of disruption to your employees and other offices.
Making the decision to relocate should not be taken lightly, but at the rate we are going, if you don’t have the legal means to fight back, it may be less costly to relocate to protect the integrity of your business.
