Moving any type of corporate entity, business or office is a challenge, but moving any type of industrial, manufacturing, fabrication or production facility poses unique and very complex issues. Even though Houston has a very large industrial sector, finding moving companies to handle these types of moves can be a challenge.
It is also very important to talk to the industrial moving company you are considering. Ideally, try to find at least three services that will provide you with the option to compare quotes. This will be a large project, so getting the best price combined with the services need is well worth the time in soliciting and comparing bids or quotes.
Consider Your Move Requirements
Before contacting any industrial moving services, spend some time considering what will be moved and what will remain. This includes the storage and racking units, inventory, raw materials, production machines and equipment as well as the office components.
Also, it will be important to have a timeline in mind for the move. For very large facilities it may be more effective and limit downtime if specific departments or areas of the facility are moved on different days or over a span of time.
Talk to An Industrial Moving Specialist
The industrial moving companies contacted should put you in touch with their industrial moving specialists. These professionals have extensive experience in these multi-stage moves or in handling the most complex types of equipment. They will also ensure that the crew that arrives to complete the move has the training, experience and expertise needed to address your move.
This starts by working with your team to develop both a move out plan as well as a move in plan. This ensures the moving company and your staff know what is happening and in what order. This not only makes a move out of or into Houston easier, but it also ensures the move can be completed on your timeline.
