Commercial Moving Estimate
When you decide to move your commercial space, the first step is to request a moving estimate. Once your request for a commercial relocation quote is received, the moving company will assign a dedicated move coordinator to your project. This individual will be your main point of contact, guiding you through every step of the move, from helping with the initial moving plan to the final placement of items in your new location.
Upon agreement on the estimate, you’ll be provided with an Order of Service document. This comprehensive document will detail all the services you’ve opted for and their associated costs, ensuring complete transparency. On the day of the move, as items are loaded and transported, they will be cataloged on a Bill of Lading. This critical document serves as both a checklist and a receipt, detailing each item’s condition before the move. Once the move is completed and every item is set up in your new location, you’ll review the Bill of Lading with the team leader. This ensures that all items have been moved safely and are in the expected condition. Once you’re satisfied, your signature on the Bill of Lading will conclude the process.

The cost of hiring a commercial moving company can vary widely based on several factors. These include the overall size of the move, the specific distance to be covered, and any additional or specialized services that might be required. For instance, moving a small office within the same city might be considerably less expensive than relocating a large corporation across state lines.
Based on our research, a commercial move for a 1,500-square-foot space usually costs anywhere from $1,000 – $5,000 on average, while a 3,000-square-foot space can cost up to $10,000. That being said, the cost of your move entirely depends on your specific needs. This is why it’s always advisable to get free quotes from a few moving companies to understand the breakdown of costs.

The relocation of sensitive equipment or confidential materials is a significant concern for many businesses.

A full-service commercial moving company typically offers a broad spectrum of services to cater to the diverse needs of businesses.

Reviews play a pivotal role in the decision-making process for businesses looking to relocate. They offer insights into a moving company’s performance, reliability, and customer satisfaction. When evaluating a mover, it’s essential to consider the overall rating, the number of reviews, how recent the reviews are, and the content of the reviews. Both positive and negative reviews can provide valuable insights.
It is best to look for reviews on a third-party website, such as Google Customer Reviews or Yelp. This way, you can be confident that the reviews are coming straight from the customer. Sometimes, when companies post curated reviews on their site, they remove the bad ones or edit the content, which is why third-party review sites are more trustworthy.
Our 4.7/5 star review on Google is a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and unmatched customer service. However, you don’t need to take our word for it; we invite you to check out our Escanaba, Negaunee, and Marquette Google Customer Reviews to learn more about the experience we provide to our customers.
The duration required to relocate a business can vary based on several determinants. These include the size of the business, the total distance of the move, the complexity of items, and any specific requirements or challenges associated with the move. While some local moves might be completed within a day, larger relocations might span several days or weeks. If you are moving your commercial space out of state, it is best to plan for one day of loading, one day of unloading, and another day for each 500 miles of travel.
