If you're picking up your business and moving across town to a new location, hiring a professional commercial moving company may be the best option. Trusting your employees to pack all of the items on their desks properly and loading the items can be dangerous and distracting.
Instead, find a commercial moving company that is willing to work around your business schedule so you don't have to shut down, and that can do an efficient job. Here are a few things to look for in a company.
How does the company take inventory when they are packing the items? Is there a master list that you approve and check once they get to the destination? Find out how they make sure all of the items from your office space are accounted for, and if they take liability for every item they have documented.
How are all of your electronics and expensive pieces going to be transported? Are they going to be wrapped with paper, bubble wrap, put in a box with foam pieces? Find out so you feel confident everything is going to get to the location in one piece, and how it left the original space.

Will they pack and move the items, and unload
Make sure the company has liability insurance to cover any of your items that could be damaged throughout the moving process. They also need insurance for all of the employees, in case someone gets injured while they are working on your project. You don't want to pay for worker's compensation or a lawsuit because someone slipped a disc while unloading your office furniture.
