Which factors impact the cost of a professional move?

Factor 1: Amount of furniture

The most important thing in terms of the costs of a business move is the amount of furniture involved. Moving ten work stations will be much cheaper than moving 30 or 40 work stations! This last scenario will require not just more moving vans, but also more movers.

Factor 2: Additional movers

If you want to move as efficiently as possible, it might be worth hiring one or more additional movers. This does not have to mean the total cost of the move goes up – an additional mover also means more efficient work, which means the costs can be reduced!

Type Cost
Professional mover 20-25 GBP/hour
Optional moving coordinator 47-50 GBP/hour
  • Factor 3: Transport costs

When you use a moving firm, you must count on the transport costs, and this is also the case for a business move.  Often, a local moving firm will not charge for the first 20km, and nationwide firms may not charge for the first 50 to 100km. Generally, the price will be between 0.30 and 1.00 GBP per kilometre.

Factor 4: Additional options

There are also additional options which can ensure your business move goes more smoothly. These include a handyman service (at approximately 30 GBP/hour) or a specialised archive mover (20-25 GBP/hour).

Interesting tips to save money:

  • Ideally, move on a weekday. We realise this may not be so simple for a business, but it can enable you to save a decent amount of money. Moving firms tend to charge a 20% surcharge for Saturday moves and often as much as 50% for a Sunday move.
  • Partially carry out the move yourself! As owner of the firm, you will likely visit the new location a number of times. During these visits, you may be able to move a number of items yourself, and particularly if your firm owns a number of large vans, you can move some smaller items of furniture or computers yourself. This will save time and thus money!
  • Don’t move redundant items: A move is the ideal moment to get rid of many things which are no longer needed or which may be too old to be used, such as old computers or paper you no longer use. In this way, less items will need to be moved, which will save money!
