Commercial Moving Services
If you’re looking for office movers in Edmonton or you need another kind of commercial relocation, JP's Moving Services will make it easy to move your business or office.
Reducing your downtime is at the top of our list of priorities, and organization is the key to a stress-free move. A detailed map of your new layout will make your move quicker and minimize any confusion.
You can count on us to make your office move smooth and efficient. And if your move involves employee relocation, make sure to ask us about how we could fulfill your needs.
How to Plan for your Office Move
Conventional or 2 drawer filing cabinets can be moved with the contents inside unless the move involves stair carry, but all breakables removed.
Computers and specialized equipment:
Consult the manufacturer or supplier – in most cases this equipment will require servicing before and after the move.
Server and IT equipment relocation:
If your office relocation involves moving servers and other types of IT equipment, let us know. We’ll come up with a plan to move these items safely and strategically to minimize server downtime.
Labeling Your Items:
Prepare a floor plan of your new property and construct a labeling system. We will happily assist you if required.
Color-coded labels will help make the move go smoothly and quickly.
Desks should be labeled on the top surface of the desk on the far right corner.
Label chairs at the top on the back. Chair cushions should also be labeled.
Filing cabinets should be labeled on the front of the top drawer. All sections of the sectional filing cabinets should be labeled.
Each section of bookcases should be labeled on the upper front surface.
Mark all components of furniture which may become separated during the move.
Filing cabinets in rows should be labeled consecutively to avoid re-handling.
A complete packing job is essential for an efficient move. Our experienced professional packers are available as an added service.
Cartons, tape and bubble wrap are available for purchase, and we will arrange delivery for you.
Supplies stored in cabinets must be packed.
The bottom of each carton must be taped.
Fill cartons to the top and tape securely. Do not over-fill the cartons as they will be stacked during transit.
Pictures and mirrors must be taken down and leaned against the walls. Special cartons will be brought on moving day to transport them safely.
Make arrangements for uninterrupted elevator service at both your origin and destination. Our representative will advise you on elevator requirements.
Rugs should be taken up and re-laid in advance.
Water coolers, pencil sharpeners and other fixtures should be removed from the walls before the time of the move.
Limit your own personnel just enough to maintain proper liaison with our supervisor.
Employee cars and company vehicles must be removed from loading and unloading zones. Trucks require a large area for backing up and turning.
We will need to tip your desks on end so that they can be moved on a dolly. We suggest that you:
Empty drawers and place the contents in a carton,
Wrap breakables in paper before packing in cartons,
Gather small items such as pins, paper clips in an envelope, and
Bundle papers, pens, and other loose items together with a rubber band.
All books, papers and breakables should be removed and packed in boxes or bins prior to moving day.
