Office and industrial relocations require extra planning, preparations, and logistics services. Often, the relocation of bulky, expensive equipment and sensitive information comes into play and requires additional vendors and coordination. Whether you’re planning a small office move or the relocation of your entire warehouse and manufacturing facility, the team at ADSI Moving Systems is experienced and ready to bring solutions to you.
Our relocation services include warehouse layout and planning, installation of racking systems, packing and material prep, temporary storage and more. Here’s a quick look at how the process unfolds
ADSI Moving Systems is here to help throughout every part of your industrial relocation journey. As a white-glove logistics provider, each of our industrial relocations includes packing and unpacking options at your new location. Once moving day arrives, our team arrives onsite to help you finalize packing and prepare and load your items for transit. Then, once we arrive at your new office space, our crews will unload and assist with unpacking. This includes placing furniture, per your layout and instructions.
Once the move in is complete, we will haul away all the debris and packing materials and leave you with a “ready-to-work” space.

Office Move Planning Tips

Picking A Good Moving Partner and Checking References
Take time to identify and interview a few candidates for managing your relocation. Be sure to ask questions about the services they can provide. Learn about their experience and capabilities, specifically how they compare to your needs. Research them online, read reviews, and check for references.
Preparing For Your Office Move
Prior to opening the doors of your new facility you will want to consider things like:
- how many days to set aside for your relocation
- furniture that will move from your old facility to the new one
- coordinating deliveries of new furniture pieces
- transferring and relocating files and filing cabinets
- IT, server, and telephone downtime
When you work with ADSI Moving Systems we are able to help you manage a variety of these processes. The initial walkthrough of your space is to see what types of equipment will be needed to relocate your items. We do this before scheduling your move and to see how we can best assist you throughout the relocation. Our professional team will be able to provide you with a timeline for your relocation and will work alongside you to coordinate the relocation of all items.
Packing and/or Storing your Items
As you are preparing for the relocation, it’s likely that some employees will begin packing items to relocate themselves. It is a best practice to clearly communicate what the expectations are of employees and staff throughout the office move. Our team will be on hand during the day(s) of the office move to help pack items to be relocated.
On Moving Day
On relocation day ADSI Moving Systems will be “all-hands-on-deck”. Our full-time, uniformed, and trained crews will be on time and ready to pack items, disassemble furniture, wrap and protect, and begin the loading process. Once the origin facilities are fully loaded on ADSI trucks, we will head to your new facility.
