How is office moving different from residential moving?
Although office moving and residential moving appear similar initially in that they are moving items from Point A to Point B, that is where any similarities end. In fact, they are very different types of projects once you start breaking them down. Office moving and relocation involves commercial or office properties that must follow specific city codes, laws, and regulations. That is why it is important that you work with a legitimate, licensed and insured Portland local moving service.
They usually have much stricter timelines and require the use of different equipment. Plus, the logistics are more complex. Here is how the two types of moves differ:
Residential moving – moving out of an apartment, condo, or home is relatively simple. You pack up your belongings and household furnishings, the movers take your items to your new location, and then you unpack everything. You can usually accomplish this type of move with just 3-4 people and you can set your own pace when unpacking everything. Your only concern is ensuring that everything arrives intact.
Commercial relocation/office moving – whether it’s a small retail outlet or a large corporation, commercial relocation and office moving is a more complex process and requires the hiring of an experienced office movers team in Portland. A business or office relocation must be done quickly and efficiently in order minimize downtime and the loss of productivity. In an ideal situation, the Handy Haulers Moving Company and others will have the IT equipment, lighting, and office furnishings in place prior to moving in.
What office moving services do we provide?
Although you could probably enlist the help of several employees to help with the moving, this is never a good idea since you’ll be held liable in the event that one of them gets injured during the move. Our commercial relocation specialists and office movers personnel in Portland will ensure that everything gets delivered to your new facility or offices safely and securely. When you employ professionals to assist with your office move, you take the risk off you and your employees.
At the Handy Haulers Moving Company, we offer the most extensive line of office moving and relocation services at the most competitive rates in our industry. These services include but are not limited to:
- logistics and moving planning
- furniture disassembly and re-assembly at your new facility or office
- long or short-term storage (if required)

- professional crating and packing of documents, electronics, and office supplies
- truck loading and unloading
- unpacking and installation services at your new location
What is involved in planning your office move?
All successful commercial relocations and office moves have one element in common – careful and thorough planning. Before anything is packed and loaded by our office movers team in Portland, our moving and relocation coordinators will sit down with you and discuss your needs and the challenges we will be facing such as:
- available staging and loading areas
- elevator and stair access
- restricted access points
- your timeline for the move
The Handy Haulers will create a detailed moving checklist and take an inventory of all items that are moving to your new location. Additionally, we will list your requirements and develop a plan that fits within your budget parameters.
How much will it cost to move your office?
As a business owner, you have to be concerned with overhead or the costs involved in relocating to your new facility or office. The key to a successful office move is getting everything done as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. Based on a 1,500 sq. ft. office, moving costs can range from $750 up to $4,500. An office of 3,000 sq. ft. would cost between $1,500 and $9,000. Finally, an office of 10,000 sq. ft. or more would cost between $5,000 up to $30,000. The average cost per employee ranges from $50 to $250 per individual. We offer a FREE no-obligation quote on your upcoming relocation to help you get an idea on the cost related to it.
