Are Your Office Movers Properly Handling Your Electronics?

Desktop computers

Your office electronics are an essential part of your business and damage or loss during a move can have far-reaching effects. You need to choose a professional who has experience with sensitive and critical equipment. Proper handling means less downtime, which can be critical to your business. Here are some questions you might ask to determine if your electronics will be handled properly and efficiently:

  • Will the moving company do a complete inventory and create a color-coded diagram to establish where each piece of electronics came from and where it will be delivered?
  • Will the company request testing the network and/or data center to establish a baseline to compare to the destination to ensure performance is equal to or better than the origin?
  • If disassembly is required, will there be documentation to ensure proper reassembly?
  • Will there be careful planning to minimize downtime, with contingencies in case something goes wrong?
  • Is there a process to ensure electronics are working properly at the destination?
  • Do the movers have an IT team who will go through the office at the destination, hook up, and test all electronics?
  • Are the movers specifically trained in packing, loading, and moving electronics?
  • Will accessories and manuals be labeled and organized to get them quickly and efficiently moved?
  • Will the movers use anti-static packing material?
  • Are the sensitive electronics protected with specialized vans?
