Commercial Relocation and Office Moves.
12/03/19 | Advice and Tips
Over the past 40 years, we have built on our high standards and reputation with our Office Move and Commercial Relocation service. We began our process planning and executing the most seamless Office and Commercial Relocations services in 1978. During this time, we have worked in tandem with some of the largest corporations and enterprises in this country. Aaltonen has since provided successful moving solutions for all sizes of businesses and industries. Moving your business has never been easier!
Back in the day…
In the early days, it was not so easy. The South Mall in Cork to this day houses a lot of solicitors and bankers offices. The street still consists of Grandiose Georgian office blocks. Some of which were remodelled from Georgian houses. The majority of these buildings proved too difficult to modernise internally. During the eighties and nineties, we encountered various issues with these tight layouts. Can you imagine negotiating fireproof filing cabinets, safes and boardroom tables up these narrow-winding stairs? It was vigorous and robust work and still can be!

Progession and Growth
As time progressed so did our planning. We modernised our approach. The company invested in specialised moving equipment. We developed in-house procedures to make large scale commercial moves more efficient and effortless. This included state of the art hand trucks and stairs climbers. Bespoke file and computer crates. An ample amount of dollies and customised moving labels. We quickly learned that our clients required as little downtime and disruption to their business workings as possible. Our goal was simple – #MovingMadeEasy.
In order for this to be successful, we typically appoint an experienced commercial Move Co-Ordinator to visit your premises. This ideally will take place well in advance of your move date(s). Ordinarily, we advise our clients with large numbers of staff and higher volume of inventory to move over the course of a weekend. In this instance, your staff will ideally leave work on a Friday evening. Our crews execute the move over the weekend. Then your staff return to your entire enterprise fully functioning in your new location on Monday morning!
If this is not possible, we can arrange for alternative scenarios which similarly keep disruptions to a minimal. It is not uncommon for us to work around your staff as they work, or even arrive just as they are leaving. With every office move, we provide our own customised crates along with easy peel labels. We also provide you with a PDF packed with advice to be shared with your staff. On move day our crews arrive fully equipped with dollies, hand trucks, ramps and office floor plans.
Before your Move
Each member of your staff should label their own crate and furniture. Then our experienced crews set up their workstation as they wish. For specialist heavy items such as safes, fireproof cabinets, large photocopiers and printers we have motorised stairs climbers. Our attention to detail is the reason why Aaltonen International Removals & Storage is the firm you can trust.
