WHY MOVING THE OFFICE CAN BE ‘RISKY BUSINESS’

moving the office

Do you plan moving the office in the near future.  Worried about stopping your business operations?  You want to minimizing downtime? Want to work normally on Monday morning? What about protection and moving fragile and delicate IT equipment? How will these be relocated? Who will disconnect and re-connect all the office equipment?

 

These are normal worries, when moving the office. Because of the technological age, nowadays there are so many fine parts that can snap or break in a computer. There is a risk of damaging them when you move from one place to another. When you move with Allied you can have a professional team take control of the whole process and arrange specialized transit insurance. This protects your business from the risks involved in moving the office.

 

That’s exactly why you shouldn’t think about moving the office by yourself. There’s just too much risk, and it’s unlikely that you’ve been trained in how to move items professionally and safely. Also if you move something yourself and it breaks the insurance may not cover your damage. It will leave you not only exposed to the replacement of the item but not working when you need it! It could be a laptop, or a whole server broken down. Until you can either get it repaired or replaced, your business operations is going to be interrupted.

HOW CAN INSURANCE FROM ALLIED PICKFORDS GIVE YOU PEACE OF MIND?

Instead of trying to pack everything by yourself with a risk not to do it right, you should let a professional moving team pack everything. Your manager will be able to sort out everything from what packing materials you’ll need, to what items should be specially packed. Furthermore how much the insurance will cost and the level of coverage it is will need.

 

Insurance will be an extra expense, of course, but it will protect from factors outside your control during the moving. You’ll be thankful that your belongings are alright. You don’t want to have extra expenses just because a major server got broken, or one of your employees now has to work from home because of IT equipment not arriving safely or it’s not connected in time.

 

All of the downtime you’ll go through organizing your relocation shouldn’t be extended just because you didn’t have sufficient relocation insurance. There’s no need to involve a third-party and make the process more difficult.
