Working with the “DIY” strategy might not always be the best solution, don’t think that moving your office stuff and furniture is going to be an easy job. If you let your employees move their own stuff then you can all help each other with the rest of the stuff but is it that easy?
First thing you should think about is “Hey, can you please give me a hand to move the table down the stairs?” Obviously you don’t want to take the risk of moving that desk or table alone or even with a hand, you don’t want to worry about if any of the furniture gets hurt or scratches.
Don’t forget to add the date of your job and when do you want the move to occur and provide timing and maybe the number of tables or desks, so the companies can quote you accordingly.
