Why Hire a Retail Business Moving Company?

Moving a retail business or setting up a new store in Halifax, Nova Scotia or any city in Canada requires a lot of planning and a high-degree of coordination. The days, retail businesses simply can’t afford too much downtime if they want to retain and build their customer base. Delays in getting a new store up and running can negatively impact any retail operation.

Keep in mind, there’s a lot more to moving/opening a retail store than just having display cases, tables, cash registers, boxes of inventory and other items transported from one location to another. Usually a new store can come with major upgrades like high-end signage and extensive digital display fixtures. That’s why a structured moving plan is essential for taking each of these aspects into consideration and ensuring a smooth transition is made.

Working with a company like Premiere Van Lines means you’ll have complete access to our business moving division, where we have the expertise, specially trained personnel and the right equipment to handle your retail move effectively. Unlike some moving companies without a specific business moving division, Premiere is your “one stop shop” for your entire project.

How it Works

To start, we’ll assign an experienced business moving project manager to oversee all aspects of your move from start to finish. Not only will your Premiere project manager work with you to develop a detailed moving plan, but he/she will ensure that everything is completed on-time and on-budget.

Storage and Delivery

If you’re purchasing new fixtures or furniture items, we can coordinate with your supplier to pick-up and store items until everything is ready for delivery at your new location. If needed, we can also spot a trailer at the manufacturer or distributor’s location to accommodate the loading schedule.

Third-party Services

As a professional retail business mover, Premiere makes the arrangements for any third-party service required, including technology providers. Your Premiere project manager will develop a schedule for loading and delivery that minimizes the time your retail store is closed to the public. We can also accommodate late nights and even statutory holidays to achieve your grand opening goal.

Customized Service

Your project manager will also work closely with assigned personnel from your business to ensure that our crews are knowledgeable about your specific needs. During your entire move process, we keep communication lines open and assure we’re accountable for an easy relocation.

Along with disassembly and reassembly of existing fixtures, careful packing and labelling, we’ll also distribute copies of your floor plan to site supervisors, so no time is lost once setting up at your new retail space. Additional unpacking, installation and set-up services are available for your convenience.

For professional assistance on a retail business move, call our Premiere Van Lines Halifax office at 902-468-4313 or contact your local Premiere Van Lines office.
