Moving from one office location to another is often a logistical nightmare. Between multiple locations, hundreds of devices, and short timelines, a move quickly becomes difficult to align. It can be especially daunting to entrust your IT equipment to a standard moving company: Will your assets be handled and reassembled appropriately?
Relocation Best Practices
Every move is different, and success is dependent on careful consideration and planning. The first step is hiring the correct type of professionals. Movers who aren't familiar with technology may handle sophisticated equipment without care (and create more problems than solutions.) In contrast, relocation specialists with an IT background will know that technology is an investment vital to your business's efficiency. For planning purposes, it is also crucial to define a timeline with your moving professionals upfront. Businesses often need to relocate a fleet of equipment or an entire office on a tight deadline, and movers who are unqualified or ill-prepared may damage or misplace equipment parts. Any unnecessary downtime on account of a move can mean lost business. To ensure prompt and correct equipment relocation, BLM Technology created a program called FlexForce™ to help companies seamlessly transition from one location to another.
