Business Solutions FAQ

What is a commercial mover?

Commercial movers are companies that relocate businesses. Office movers can offer an array of solutions beyond a simple commercial move, including commercial storage, ongoing facility support, office move planning and reconfiguration and decommissioning services.

Not all commercial movers are the same. It takes specialized experience and equipment to carry out complex commercial moves in specialized industries like industrial and warehouse relocations, healthcare facilities and academic centers. However, when you work with a well-established, full-service moving company such as Suddath, you get access to a broad menu of traditional office moving services, combined with an expanded suite of specialized commercial moving and storage services, which simplifies the move process, enabling you to bundle solutions for cost savings and work with a single commercial mover to save time. 

How much does a commercial move cost?

One of the highest costs to consider when planning a commercial move is the lost revenue from interruptions in service or production, which is why it’s important to work with an office moving company that can streamline the move process for reduced downtime.

There is no set cost for a commercial move since every move is unique. The price commercial movers charge typically depends on various factors such as the weight and volume of the load, how many hours of labor are involved, and the amount of planning and preparation that is needed. Suddath is the only commercial moving company that offers award-winning technology to give you faster, more accurate estimates as well as reduce downtown during a commercial move. Fill out this form, or contact us today to get a quote on your upcoming commercial move.

Do I need a commercial mover to move my business?

Working with a commercial mover is often a smart choice. Most business moves involve moving large equipment and allowing a team of professional movers to do the heavy lifting can protect you and your employees from injury. Not only that, but it can prevent costly damage to your equipment and supplies. Also, experienced commercial movers like Suddath will get the job done more quickly and efficiently than movers with no experience helping businesses move. Suddath also offers award-winning technology to give you control over inventory, progress and quality throughout an office move.

Since your employees’ work routines will likely be at least partly interrupted until the move is complete, getting timely help from professional office movers can often pay for itself. One of the many benefits of working with a full-service commercial mover such as Suddath is that you’ll avoid dealing with multiple vendors. Let us be your one-stop-shop for quickly moving your business and getting you up and running again.

What does a logistics company do?

A logistics company manages and oversees how resources are acquired, stored, and transported from point of origin to destination. Selecting the right third-party logistics (3PL) company to support your business is crucial. There are a variety of 3PL companies that range from well-known, large providers that offer solutions around the globe to smaller, more regional companies. Both types of 3PL providers have advantages and drawbacks when it comes to scalability, capacity, sophistication, responsiveness and a level of flexibility. Often, companies are forced to make compromises between the capabilities of a big global logistics company and the service and flexibility of regional providers. At Suddath, we offer our customers the best of both worlds. We have the capabilities of large providers with the flexibility and responsiveness of smaller 3PLs. Contact us to learn more.

Which company is best for logistics?

A large 3PL logistics company typically has access to more experts and resources, while a smaller logistics company usually means more flexibility and responsiveness. With Suddath, you get the best of both worlds, which is why we believe we’re the top choice for logistics. We take pride in the fact that we’ve managed to combine big company resources with a small company feel.

How do you prepare for a corporate move?

If you’re an employee being relocated, it may be time to start sorting through your belongings in preparation for the move. Most moving experts recommend that you begin packing rarely used items about four to six weeks before moving day. That said, with corporate moves, the employer often pays for packing and unpacking services, which means less preparation for individual employees. Still, it’s advisable to take a personal inventory, and you may want to organize and pare down your items before the packers arrive.

If you’re a business owner or manager facing an upcoming move, there are several steps involved in preparing for the relocation. First, you’ll need to decide on a timeframe and discuss the move with your employees. Next, you’ll want to develop a moving checklist, which will go a long way in keeping you organized.

Relocating a business is complicated, so you’ll want to select one person to be a single point of contact during the move. This person would be tasked with the responsibility of communicating with employees, vendors, and anyone else affected by the move. To ensure your move takes place on time and to get help during the early planning stages, contact a reputable moving company as soon as you know your move date.

Choreographing an office move can be daunting but staying organized and chipping away at your to-do list will help minimize your stress. Also, when you trust Suddath with your move, you’ll have a dedicated move coordinator just a phone call, email, or chat away to assist you throughout the relocation process.

What is a corporate relocation?

The term “corporate relocation” usually refers to a situation where a business is paying to move an employee to new location, often as part of a new role, territory, or work assignment. Corporate relocation involves offering a “relocation package” to the employee. This package could include financial benefits from an employer that may include directly paying an employee’s household goods move or reimbursement for moving expenses.

One of the largest expenses associated with relocating employees is the cost of hiring professional movers. Companies know that corporate moving is a valuable benefit for employees and having professional packing and moving helps employees get to their new roles safely and quickly. At Suddath, we offer corporate relocation services at an affordable price. Because we realize that no two corporate moves are alike, we offer a full continuum of employee moving services for both international and domestic moves. There’s a reason why some of the world’s leading companies rely on Suddath to move their employees.
