When businesses are planning a move they need a reliable logistics company. To ensure you’re choosing the right company to handle your logistics, here are a few questions to ask them.
1. Have You Worked With Businesses Similar to Mine?
Whether your business is an office, retail, or medical facility, it’s important to know if the logistics company has experience handling requests from a company similar to yours. If they do, then they likely already have a few processes down. They won’t have to adjust as much to handle your business.
2. What Products Do You Support?
Some logistic companies are unable to transport certain products. Certain items like batteries or food may require a specialized logistic company.
3. Do You Have Any Capacity Requirements?
Some logistic companies require you to indicate what needs to be moved to determine the team and trucks needed. Understanding what needs to be moved from the business is important. Large loads may need additional trucks or mover. Knowing the size of the move can help you determine the cost of the company fits in your budget.
4. What Will The Timeline Look Like?
For most businesses, moving means, putting business on pause. You want a quick actionable timeline to ensure you can minimize moving days, and get back to running the business.
5. Where are You Located?
It’s important to choose business movers in Philadelphia, or wherever your located, that are based near you, to limit the time it takes to move. Between packing, travel, and unpacking, a local mover can minimize the travel times.
6. What Integrations Do You Operate With?
The logistics company needs to have experience handling different types of equipment. As a business, your equipment is vital to your process and often expensive. The company should be able to handle moving the equipment properly and safely as they transport and unload it to your new space.
7. What are Your Pricing Plans?
Some companies may offer different plans based on your needs. Understanding their costs can help you determine whether or not they fit into your budget.
