Moving Hotels in 3 Easy Steps

You may be thinking: “moving hotels and the word ‘easy’ probably shouldn’t be in the same sentence.”  Well, you’d be correct in some ways, as moving hotels is definitely not easy as a whole, but if you break it down into steps, you have a much more manageable endeavor to take on. 

And even though our hotel movers have a big mountain to climb when it comes to the planning, packing, disassembling of furniture, moving items, loading, and unloading the truck, it is a manageable task that our long-distance hotel moving services can handle with no problem. 

Keep reading to learn how moving hotels can be broken down into 3 easy to follow steps.

Hotel Moving

Step 1: The Plan (receiving, handling, inventory control reporting, storage delivery)

When preparing for a hotel relocation you must have a solid plan. Without one, things are pretty much guaranteed to go awry. Because moving a hotel involves so many logistical components, you have to expertly craft a game plan. 

So why not let the expert long-distance hotel moving services take control and help get this extensive moving project underway? 

There are many reasons that you may be moving hotels. The why isn’t as important as the when and where. If you are moving hotels within the same city, Total Distance Solutions can easily orchestrate this move. However, if you are moving long-distance, there is a lot more to consider while drafting up your moving plan. 

Plan in advance.

First of all, you need to plan a hotel relocation as far in advance as possible. Long-distance hotel moving services will need to ensure there is enough manpower and resources available to accommodate your move. 

Not only that, but you also want to be able to give hotel goers and guests notice that your old location will not be able to accommodate them during your move. Don’t make the mistake and forget to block off the moving dates on your booking system. You do not want to have to call guests to let them know you are no longer available to accommodate their stay. That’s a great way to get a low-star rating on your hotel business. 

Expect to move over multiple days.

The average hotel can have between 75 to 313 rooms in it.  So regardless, moving hotels is not something that will be completed in a day. Be wary of any hotel furniture movers that make you a promise of 1-2 days to move. This could be a major red flag. The only way a move of this magnitude could be completed in a short time frame is if the moving company cuts corners and doesn’t ensure the safety of all the hotel furniture. Great things take time, and that is true about properly moving hotels. 

Take a detailed inventory.

When moving hotels, you should know the exact numbers of all the items in your establishment before moving hotels. That means you know the precise number of king-sized beds, queen-sized beds, cots, playpens, nightstands, TVs, desks, mini-fridges, dining chairs, dining tables, conference chairs, tables, and the list goes on and on.

Most hotel owners and managers should have a running inventory and do frequent audits, however, don’t rely 100% on your most recent audit sheet. You need to know exactly how many items you are moving so when the hotel furniture movers arrive, there is no room for error. 

When moving hotels, it’s important to know that most long-distance hotel moving services are not in the business of transporting food products, especially non-perishable or flammable items. That is something to keep in mind when moving your hotel long-distance.


Step 2: The Execution (disassembly services, loading trucks, transport)

When the first day of moving arrives and your hotel furniture movers arrive, you can finally take a deep breath and exhale all your worries. If you’ve hired Total Distance Solutions, the most trusted long-distance hotel moving services, you know it’s all downhill from here. 

Our expert hotel furniture movers will:

  • Disassemble all furniture that is large and cumbersome to move as a full piece (bed frames, desks, tables, office furniture, etc.)
  • Wrap furniture with blankets, pads, and plastic wrap to guarantee there will be no damage to the actual structure of the furniture during the moving process
  • Pack up smaller items in boxes and ensure their safety during the move
  • Carefully and strategically load the trucks to fit all items in such a way so no damage will occur during transport
  • Transport items to your final destination 

Once the last item has been loaded in the truck by our hotel movers, you can get a cleaning crew in to do a final clean of your old hotel. It’s time to move on to the next chapter!
