With the situation of mounting college tuition, employment is getting more and more important. With that being said, some people take the process of hiring an office mover lightly in order to save money or time. However, doing so can lead to a variety of issues that could end up costing you a lot more than you would have spent hiring a professional moving company.
Many office movers that are not affiliated with a company do not have insurance. This means that if they break your furniture or damage a wall in your office, they will not reimburse you for the damages. If you hire a professional moving company, however, they will have insurance to cover any damages that may occur during the process.
You Could Be Liable for Broken or Stolen Goods
If any of your items get broken or stolen from an unprofessional mover, it is up to you to prove that it was not your fault and that it was an accident on the part of the moving company. This is because if the company has no insurance, then there is no one to reimburse you for your loss.
If you hire a professional mover, however, you will be covered by insurance to a certain extent and will not have to worry about liability.
You Could Have a Privacy Breach
Many companies today store customer information on computers and hard drives. These files are extremely important for the survival of your company and should not be exposed in any way possible. An unprofessional mover might just throw your hard drives into a box without any protection or padding and could easily cause damage during the move that could lead to a security breach of your sensitive personal information.
You Could Be Responsible for Any Damages
If a professional mover damages your office, they could be held accountable for repair costs. In the case of an unprofessional mover however, if you have to pay to have your walls or floors repaired after the move, it is your responsibility to get that work done and you will have to pay for it.
They Won’t Care About Your Belongings
When a professional mover comes to pack up your office and load everything onto the truck, they will take care of your things like they would their own because they are trained to do so and because they will be held accountable if anything is damaged in transit.
