• Our tried and tested business move process ensures a successful, streamlined move – every time.

Planning a Business Move

The CMS approach for planning a business move is based on a tried and tested move process which begins with listening, researching and analysing our clients’ individual needs and culture.  This enables us to gain a thorough understanding of requirements for each project.  We then work closely with you throughout your business move, ensuring that the delivery of your new working environment meets your expectations and aspirations.

The move process

Whilst every move project is different depending on size, the number of people and the locations involved, the move process will follow a similar cycle:

Step 1 - Move Suitability Analysis

– Site survey
– Building access analysis
– Move advice
– Storage requirement analysis

Step 2 - Project Planning

– Detailed cost schedule
– Key dates programme
– Methodology evaluation

Step 3 - Move Management

– Planning and implementation
– Health and Safety evaluation
– Project resource

Step 4 - The Move

– Supply and installation of building protection
– Supply of packing crates and materials
– Removal and storage of stored items
– Transportation of items to new location
– Installation of items at new location

Step 5 - Project Handover

– Client inspection and sign off
– Client occupancy

Step 6 - Post Project Services

– Managed storage
– Furniture facilities support
– Reconfiguration and move management
– Internal move management

“We have worked with Kevin and the team at CMS for a number of years on various projects ranging in both size and complication. Kevin’s experience and keen eye for detail have been vital to the success of complicated move management projects where space has been at a premium. He has been instrumental in assisting us with the design and layout of racking in a busy distribution warehouse and also with furniture installation in the main office areas. CMS also handles our archiving and storage requirements and the team are responsive, courteous and extremely efficient – always willing to accommodate any last-minute requests for either collection or retrieval of documentation and/or furniture. I rely on them all totally and would highly recommend Kevin and his team.”
