A business move isn’t over when your office furniture is successfully moved from point A to point B. Naturally, each item needs to be properly, professionally and safely installed as well.
To achieve this key goal, here are 7 factors to help you choose the right office furniture installation company – and steer clear of the wrong ones:
There is no substitute for experience when it comes to installing office furniture – especially if the items being installed are older, or have been customized to fit spacing needs or work requirements.
What an office furniture installation company says about itself is important. But in some ways, what their satisfied clients say is even more informative. As such, be sure to browse testimonials, case studies, and other types of “social proof”. What’s more, a prospective office furniture company shouldn’t hesitate to provide you with references to contact.
3. Liability Insurance
Even with careful planning and meticulous professionalism, mishaps and accidents can occur. Ensure that the office furniture installation company you choose is fully insured “just in case”.
An office furniture moving company must commit to working with you long before moving day(s), in order to optimize space utilization in your new location.
5. Project Management
Office furniture installation must be part of an overall project management plan that aligns with your overall moving schedule. Otherwise, instead of getting to work, your employees will be forced to wait hours – or possibly days – for workstations, cubicles and other items to be installed and tested. This is a major inconvenience for them, and a waste of money for you!
The proposal you get should have transparent cost information with absolutely no hidden fees of any kind. If there are potential additional charges, these should be clearly itemized and mutually agreed to long before moving day. There shouldn’t be any surprises or confusion.
Last but not least: you don’t want to see dust, screws or debris left behind after the office furniture installation is complete. The company you choose must have a punch-list that include (among other closeout tasks) a full broom-clean of the premises.
