Industrial Relocation of Warehouses & Workshops
Industrial long-distance moving of warehouses or industrial workshops is a large-scale operation involving many steps to stay organized. The first thing you need to do is contact a moving company that specializes in industrial relocations, like Total Distance Solutions.
Then it’s time to organize and catalog your inventory. When making an industrial relocation, not being organized is your # 1 enemy. If you aren’t crystal clear on what inventory you have in stock, there is a chance that things could go missing or get overlooked. It’s imperative that this is the first thing you do when deciding to move your warehouse or shop long distance. If there are things you can sell now and won’t need to relocate, that is your best bet as it’ll save you transport costs. However, the best long-distance industrial moving company can handle any size of industrial move.
Once you’ve dealt with inventory, you need to think about the big stuff – the equipment. Decide if it’s worth moving your equipment long-distance or liquidating it and buying new things at your new location. Pricing out your options by calling an industrial long-distance moving company is the best way to make a decision concerning what to do when faced with this dilemma.
You also have to be aware of the amount of space you will have in your new warehouse. If it’s larger, then it’s no problem. But if the space is smaller than your current space, you need to have a plan about what to do with equipment and inventory.
When you have your answers to those big questions, you can get started on your industrial relocation. You will need to look at the largest and most important pieces of equipment, as these will be the most challenging components of your industrial long-distance move.
Hiring long-distance industrial movers will be the key to a successful industrial relocation as they are experts in the tearing down of industrial equipment, safe transport, and the installation of equipment at your new location.
Most warehouses employ workers who you may at first want to trust to take down the equipment since they are already on the payroll. However, too often we have seen expensive and valuable equipment damaged because of inexperienced removal.
When you hire long-distance industrial moving specialists, proper equipment teardown and removal is one less thing you have to worry about when making an industrial relocation.
