    Tips for Maintaining Productivity During Your Corporate Move

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Corporate moves come with an extra concern that isn’t present during home moves—how do you keep your business running while relocating? The good news is that it is possible to move your business without seriously affecting your bottom line. The first step is to hire a qualified moving company with experience performing corporate moves. At Hollander International, our corporate moving specialists can manage the entire process so you can focus on your business. During the move, use these tips to keep productivity up:

    Let the Movers Move
    It’s a good idea to keep your employees as uninvolved with the actual moving process as possible. Not only is it a liability risk for employees to be involved with moving, it also diverts their skills away from the jobs they need to do. Encourage your employees to take a step back and allow the moving company to execute the move. Consider in advance how best to use your employees on moving day.

    Operate at Two Locations
    Your business is going to straddle two locations for a period of time, so make sure each place is open for business. Keep phone lines and internet connections active in each location until the move is complete. Even if you only post one employee at each space to monitor calls and emails, this will make for an easier transition than having a window in which your business can’t be contacted.

    Choose the Right Time
    Moving is a short-term interruption to your company’s operations that usually leads to increased productivity in the long-run, thanks to more efficient office space. On the day of the move, you will likely be operating with a skeleton staff, so don’t plan your corporate relocation for your busiest time of the year. Picking the right moving day can help ease productivity concerns.

    Hollander International can make sure your Naperville company’s relocation goes as smoothly as possible. Our corporate moving specialists will help you design a moving plan that works for your business, and then expertly execute that plan. Call us at (888) 749-9029 for more information.

    Tips for Packing Your Kitchen for Your Move

    Last updated 1 year ago

    With so many small and breakable items, packing the kitchen might seem like the most daunting part of your move—but it doesn’t have to be. With some attention to detail, you can pack up all of the items in your kitchen securely and make them easy to find on the other end.

    This video offers advice for easy kitchen packing. Wrap all of your bowls and plates in double layers of packing paper and stack them on their sides in a box lined with crumpled paper. Small appliances should be individually wrapped. Leave behind perishable foods items and put any non-perishables into plastic bags.

    Take the stress out of your next move by choosing Hollander International. Find out how we can make your move go smoothly by calling (888) 749-9029.

    What Will an International Moving Company Do for You?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Though moving is always a hectic endeavor, moving internationally requires even more intense preparation. In addition to the usual packing, you have to contend with government regulations, passports and visas, and much more. That is why it is so important to select movers with experience facilitating international relocations. There are several benefits to working with an international moving company when you move overseas. Here’s a quick look at what an international moving company can do for you:

    Explain the Requirements

    When you’re moving to a new country, the process isn’t as simple as packing a few boxes and hopping on a plane with your passport in hand. In most cases, there will be special paperwork—such as visas and customs declaration forms—required for you and your belongings. These rules vary from country to country, so it’s crucial to get sound advice well in advance of your moving day. An international moving company is familiar with these rules and will help get your paperwork and approvals lined up so that there are no hiccups at the last minute.

    Help You Pack Correctly

    In most cases, countries have rules about how incoming items must be packed and which items are allowed to come within their borders. Failing to stick to these rules could mean that your belongings are held up at customs or refused entry. International moving companies are familiar with the way items must be packed and inventoried for easy customs clearance.

    Share Local Information

    International moving companies have representatives who can give you helpful information about your new town. They can explain everything from the climate to the schools and local government. Arming yourself with this information will give you a jumpstart on your transition to your new home.

    If you’re moving internationally, you need the help of an experienced moving company. Since 1888, Hollander International has been helping families move across town and around the globe. No matter how big or small your move, our Naperville moving company can help. Call us now at (888) 749-9029 if you have any questions.
