With the Covid 19 pandemic taking a backseat, the Silicon Valley of India is back to its bustling stage! As more and more offices open up, the WFH format sees a decline, and start-ups gain backing – you, too, might want to have a slice of the business market. Whether you are looking to increase the size of your company space or move into a more-trafficked area, relocating your business space is no small task. The first step of this business-space relocation is – creating a moving budget. This will include your pre-moving, post-moving and contingency expenses – whether you are following the DIY mode or hiring professionals for the job.
How to create a professional moving budget?
Suppose you are hovering on this page and wish to create a DIY budget for office relocation. In that case, you must include certain immediate costs (packaging charges, loading-unloading charges, storage charges, transportation charges) and contingency costs (accident, sudden change of plans, last-moment bills clearance). You can create an MS Excel sheet to tab the data, chart a spreadsheet, or go in for the usual calendar or pen-paper tabulation method.
However, when you opt for the services of Movers and Packers Banashankari Bangalore – they have a team who streamlines the cost by categorically connecting with the associated people in the business. Rather than the manual procedures, they have teams who connect with concerned individuals, figure out the budget, and help you stick to the same.
As an aware customer, before you opt for the services of professionals, do ask for a quote from them – and base your requirements on that ground.
What is critical to note is that whether you are creating a relocation budget yourself or opting for the services of professional packers-movers, you must include certain common factors. Let’s see the same –
What to include in the moving budget?
- The size of the movement you plan to do – is it an inter-city or intra-city movement? Also, what are the labour rates of that movement, and which one – the amount charged by the companies or that the labourers are charging individually, works for you?
- The fees associated with the services you are opting for and a whole amount set aside for accidental purposes
- The cost of packing and fuel – whatever the source you are using for the relocation process
These are some of the most important financial statements that must be there on your budget when you are curating one.
What are the benefits of hiring professional movers?
With a basic idea about moving budget, if you intend to hire professional services such as those of Packers and Movers In Bangalore, there are a couple of things that will be beneficial from your end –
1. They will have a base moving fee
If you are wondering how this is beneficial – let us inform you, this base fee includes the labour and fuel costs. When you follow the DIY method of moving, your budget has separate categories of labor and fuel costs. In most cases, they change according to the seasons (when it is peak season the rates are higher), and can lead to discrepancies in your budget.
However, professional services have a stable base fee that, once counted in, stands fixed, despite the scenario.
2. They will provide a valuation coverage
When you hire a professional packers-movers company, they come with a valuation coverage option. In this case – they take liability (both financial and legal) in case of any untoward incident. This is another cost-saving strategy since you will not have to pay for the damages sustained in case of accidents.
3. They follow a pattern to reduce costs
The biggest positive of choosing a professional packers-movers service while planning a moving budget is – they have a pattern to reduce costs. Not only do they have in-house helpers who assist them in arranging the materials, packing the boxes, and setting up the rental trucks – but also, have salaried workers, who do not demand any extra charges for the relocation process.
Additionally, they have insurance and equipment rental that on the whole reduces the total costs.
4. They have a platter for you to choose from
Lastly, they have a platter to help you choose even while creating a budget. Their team curates your demands and requirements and customizes a budget to suit your requirement. So, depending on your basic financial format – you can decide which budget suits your need and choose accordingly.
How do professional movers reduce the budget?
For those who would prefer to do business relocation – from framing the budget to transporting the office materials by themselves, they can always plan the moving budget by themselves, as per convenience.
In the DIY method, one must make the arrangements on a one-army basis. The person single-handedly has to arrange the packing-moving materials, plan out the schedule and the associated costs with that, figure out the rental costs and the financing options that they can opt from.
On the contrary, while curating a budget, professionals such as Movers and Packers Banashankari Bangalore have the required goods and services at their beck and call. They have a team who estimates the costs, is aware of the rental costs and transport vehicle insurance, a team that streamlines the concerned services and packing materials, and workers who finally handle the on-field expense. On the whole, professional services not only create the budget but help stick to it.
Additionally, since they are in the business, unlike you as a first-party operator, they get hefty discounts – which automatically transpires into your budget, reducing it. Also, they are professionals; hence, the whole payment is done upfront with no ‘side-payments’ or ‘tidbits’ (which is often allowed or suggested in the DIY mode).
Assuming you have read this article well, you now have a fair idea of creating a moving budget (in the DIY format) or choosing the right one when you have decided to work with professionals. As much as you may love doing your job by yourself, without a doubt, professionals have a unique hold over this job and, therefore, can curate the budget in a more streamlined manner than a novice and help you adhere to it.
As a responsible citizen, you must opt for things worth your time and energy, especially when taking such a huge step to relocate your office space in a hustling-bustling city like Bangalore.
