In short, no. In additional words, let's count the ways.

Moving to a new business space in Wichita Falls is a wonderful thing--it indicates your company is thriving and growing. It's also a hassle, because you've got to load everything up and move it to the new location. In actual terms it indicates a bit of downtime for the move preparation, transportation, and setting everything back up in the newer location. It also suggests more cost during a period when you are already laying out significant cash for an office uplift, so you might be inclined to save a little bit of capital by packing and moving yourself.

Your Investment Is Really Worth Professional Packing

Don't try to DIY this one. Organizations nowadays operate on modern technology, and the components of that technology have got a sensitivity which belies their workhorse functionality. Truly the only feasible way you could potentially pack up all your equipment is if you set aside all the original packaging from all your purchases. AND if you're aware of how to repack in reverse. Face it--you didn’t, and you probably would not know in the event that you did.

Be sure to ask your accountant how much you've allocated to components and also equipment--that round number will be enough to convince you that choosing professional movers in Wichita Falls is definitely worth the price. If it isn't, be sure to ask your insurance provider if they will cover any damages you incur when you drop your new laptop or 3D printer--they will possibly cover losses, after the hefty insurance deductible.

The Experts Know

As you did not hold on to all the packaging and padding supplies, you need more of them to pack and protect all your computers and technology. Professional packers know which components to utilize and also have the means to access professional materials (things like shaped cardboard) which supply companies tend not to normally maintain in stock.

Additionally, they understand how to make boxes, crates, and cushioning to move the big objects, like enormous copy machines, refrigerators, and file cabinets and load them in the moving truck safely.

On the subject of trucks. There is an art in addition to a science to recognizing not only the quantity you require, but what sort. If you're moving large equipment, you might need to have a moving truck with a lift gate in addition to a team who is familiar with how to lift and load without injuring themselves. Plus there is the actual loading--packing the cargo space so that nothing shifts, tumbles, or breaks throughout transport is a job of engineering best not left to amateurs.

Limit Your Downtime

You will have inevitable downtime. You can diminish a little of that through moving through the weekend, yet plan to be offline for about a day or two.

How can you know this will happen? Because they're pros.

The logistics of a corporate move are generally intricate and the whole thing can go off the rails should you overlook a detail.
