With a large workforce and years of experience on small and large loads alike, North American Van Lines can handle everything from small office relocations to hotel chain moves.
Although northAmerican has a higher overall rating than United and Bekins, it doesn’t offer as many services specific to office moves (i.e., professional installation), which is why it ranked fourth on our list.
Although North American Van Lines doesn’t provide installation services, it’s the only company on our list that offers disposal, donation, and refurbishment services—document shredding and donation drop-offs, for example. And while shredding may be low on your priority list, it’ll reduce the weight of your move, which reduces cost as well—since overall weight factors into the total cost of your move.
The same way you’d downsize before a personal move, you’ll want to toss things—like those “comfortable” office chairs or that “functioning” fax machine —that are old, outdated, or that will be more cost-effective to replace in your new location.
Before you move a single filing cabinet, northAmerican will help you map out both your current office and your new space so that movers can strategically load, unload, and rearrange your desk, chairs, monitors, etc. in a timely manner.
Transition planning makes office moves more organized and planned which makes your move more efficient and quicker, allowing you to pick up your business right where it left off.
Plus, if something unexpected happens during your move, like finding out your new office isn’t ready on your scheduled move-in date, planning ahead for things like temporary storage can eliminate any last-minute scrambling and stress.
