What To Know About Commercial Storage

October 28th, 2020

Having the option for commercial storage is so much more important than you’d think. Suppose your business is ever in-between moves or has many items they don’t need at the moment; having storage options come in very handy. Here are some tips on what to know about commercial and industrial storage:

Go Through Your Inventory

When you plan on using storage for your business, it’s important to go through what you have so you can see what is needed and what is not (at the moment). Making a list of what you want to put in the storage unit can help you keep track when you move things around. If you accidentally put something in storage, you’ll be able to know. 

Plan A Budget

Before you decide on the size of the storage unit, make a budget. Figure out roughly how long you will need to utilize it and plan out your expenses. Depending on what you want to store and for how long, you’ll be able to figure out a size and price for your unit. Maybe you can keep some items you originally wanted to store at your actual office space or facility. 

Choosing A Storage Facility

If you plan on using storage that is easily accessible for you, consider choosing one close to your workplace. That way, you can easily go back and forth as needed. If you know you aren’t going to be often visiting to add or remove items, you can consider one farther away. These options can vary due to pricing, but maybe you’ll find a reasonable price nearby. RARE Moving & Storage is always reliable, so even if you are farther away, just know we are here to keep your belongings safe!

Do You Need A Climate-Controlled Facility?

Depending on what you are planning to store, you may be in need of a climate-controlled storage space. Climate-controlled storage will ensure your belongings are kept at a perfect temperature so that they look the same as when you brought them there. This is great for areas like New England, where the temperatures drastically change all across the year. Furniture and artwork are some things that need to be in a climate-controlled facility. They can get ruined at too cold or too hot of temperatures.

Tips For An Office Move

October 28th, 2020

Moving office spaces as an entire company can be a lot of work. There are so many things that need to be moved – desks, filing cabinets, tables, chairs, and so much more. When your company plans to move to a new office space, consider hiring commercial movers to help you out. Here are some tips to help your company smoothly transition to their new space:

Plan As Soon As You Can

As soon as you know your company is moving, start preparing there and then. You don’t want to be scrambling last minute! Make a plan of how you’ll pack up your belongings and make sure everything is set to go. You will feel better and more organized this way.

Put Someone in Charge

Especially if your company is on the larger side, it’s important to appoint someone as head of the move. This can be a manager or someone trustworthy and organized. This can be the person you go to that can follow up on how everyone is doing and who is ready to go and who isn’t. This will keep everyone on task and ensure they are all packed and set to move. 

Everyone Should Pack Their Own Desk

With so many other parts of the office to pack, everyone should be in charge of their own desk space. This will help the moving process go faster. The moving company will come in and move the desks out of the office onto the moving truck, but the desktops and keyboards need to be packed up – along with any personal belongings you keep at your desk.

Pick a Moving Time

If you are currently situated in a building with other offices, you may need to check with the owner of the building to find out a suitable time to move. You may not be allowed to move items out of the building during work hours so that you don’t take up the stairwells and elevators. You will most likely be asked to complete your move after-hours or earlier in the day. It all depends on the specific situation at hand.

Choose A Moving Company
