What's the difference between office and industrial Moving?
In our industry, you'll probably come across the term "O & I" from time to time, which stands for "Office and Industrial". They are normally lumped together because the office and industrial mover’s training come from the same department, but it's important for you to know - if you're looking for industrial moving services - the difference and why it matters.
Most industrial moves will consist of:
- Pallets and pallet racking
- Heavy equipment
- Sensitive material
- Bulky material
With that in mind, industrial moving requires a different expertise than office moving. Just as household goods are different from office and commercial relocation, the responsibilities of Industrial movers are different, yet still, that's where we shine. Typically, industrial moves are more challenging than simple office relocation because of the nature of the moving service required. Often, industrial moving requires moving large industrial machines or equipment. Most companies have to hire third-party riggers, industrial movers, and equipment to handle all of it, but we have individuals on our staff in both crew and sales with large amounts of experience moving large and heavy equipment. We can limit your cost by avoiding large amounts of sub-contracting.
