Rightsizing

COVID-19 Office Rightsizing

Offices may never look the same in the post COVID-19 era. Open offices may be a thing of the past, as social distancing is expected to last in some form through 2021. While many office workers will delight in the demise of the open floorplan, that means businesses are left to redesign their office spaces. In some cases, this will be essential to their ability to reopen and serve their customers.

The professional office movers at Apex Moving & Storage can help. We have moved hundreds of companies throughout Washington State, and we are in tune with what the business community needs, including safety procedures. During this pandemic, we have been keeping abreast of the latest office design guidelines, and we are ready to help you reconfigure your office or commercial building so your employees can return to work quickly and stay healthy.

Commercial Movers Ready To Help

While the vast majority of people are working from home during quarantine, office life will return. Students will return to schools and universities. Plants will reopen. Apex can help you design a plan for your office space that allows for both collaboration and distancing. We have studied government and public health regulations and social distancing protocols regarding office space, and we are poised to help devise a moving plan for you.

Following the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, local health departments across the country have required employers to take steps to make employees and the public safer. Their recommendations to employers include:

  • Minimize the number of employees working within arm’s length of each other.
  • Cancel all large, in-person meetings and conferences. Hold them instead by video conference or conference phone call.
  • For service or retail industries, ensure access for frequent handwashing, clean high-touch surfaces and provide adequate disinfectant wipes, paper towels and other hygiene products.
  • Consider telecommuting options for employees.
  • Consider staggering start and end times to reduce large numbers of people in the building at the same time.
  • Tell employees who are sick to stay home from work. Consider a flexible sick leave policy so that employees can stay home when sick without having to visit a doctor’s office to obtain a note.

Not only will adapting to these changes preserve the health and vitality of your employees, in some cases, changing with the times will be essential to the survival of the business. Companies that can demonstrate how they meet federal, state and local guidelines may be allowed to reopen more quickly than those that haven’t implemented changes.

Customer-facing businesses will find that reconfiguring commercial and retail space will gain the public’s trust and make them feel more comfortable returning to your location.

Hiring Office Movers For Rapid Redesign

Apex can accomplish a rapid redesign for your office, shop or commercial setting. Apex Moving & Storage is considered an essential business, which means that we can continue to work for you even now, while the office is empty. That results in no downtime for employees or your company as you look to return to work.

We can space desks six feet apart, the recommended measurement for safe social distancing, install partitions or reconfigure your office desks to allow for more personal distance. We provide moving equipment, packing materials and great peace of mind. Apex also offers complete packing and unpacking services.

Let us coordinate with your human resources team, subcontractors and builders as well as the IT department to make sure the move process is seamless.

Office Real Estate And Reconfiguration

Without a doubt, COVID-19 has changed the business world. What will the future office look like? No one can say for sure, but here is how many companies are responding to office design following COVID-19:

  • Conducting more meetings via video conference, even among coworkers in the same building. This means that a conference table that once held 12 executive chairs may never see that many seated guests again. If you have extra office furniture to store, Apex can help. We can pick up and store your furniture in one of our warehouse storage facilities.
  • As more and more employees work from home, some companies are finding that large offices are no longer needed, which has the added benefit of cost cutting. If you’re looking at rightsizing to a smaller footprint, Apex can help conduct the move for you.
  • With employees working from home long-term, they may require access to more than just the laptop computer that got them through the first several weeks of quarantine. Employers are now looking to send electronic equipment, such as large computers and monitors, printers and even entire file cabinets to employee home offices. Rather than leave delivery to your IT team, let the experienced electronics movers at Apex tackle this task for you. This saves the company and employees from the lost productivity of trying to relocate office equipment on their own, and it can prevent damage to equipment. Our commercial movers are trained to handle electronics and other sensitive materials.
  • Remote and small satellite offices may be a solution. Large companies are considering leasing several smaller offices and worksites to reduce the number of people gathering at one site. Apex is experienced at coordinating a large-scale, multilocation moves. As with any office or commercial move, our professionally trained moving crew will work efficiently, yet carefully, to ensure your office furniture, supplies, and equipment are being handled correctly.

As your company navigates the future, contact the professional office movers at Apex Moving & Storage for expert moves and friendly customer service.

From start to finish and on short notice, Apex was on top of our move! Our estimator (James) was professional and answered all of my questions. The... day of the move, the crew (Clint) called to let me know they were on the way. After the walk through, they laid down protective mats on my hardwoods and immediately got to work. They were quick and we came in under time!read more

I called last week to schedule an interior move so we could get carpet installed, then had to cancel at the last minute. Wendy was really nice about... it. Then I called this morning letting her know we needed their help after all. She said she would check everyone's schedule and call me back. She called about 15 minutes later stating she could get a couple guys over to us in a couple hours. She set us up for a one hour move. The guys got here right on time and moved our furniture in 15 minutes. They were so nice. Since it only took them 15 minutes, the main guy handling the paperwork called their office and got them to take $30 off the original quote. Then they offered to move a large sectional that we were going to move ourselves. Talk about 5 star service. I hope we get the same guys back when we need them to put the furniture back!read more

The absolute worst moving company I have ever used. That’s what I get for trying to save a buck. First load out of the house to the truck they spell... three boxes of depression glass. The next thing they damaged was an entertainment center that’s been in my family for over 35 years. My mom has moved countless times over the years and never once was it damaged until they got their hands on it. There was a three man crew that showed up and only one of the three really actually work. It took him four hours to move 50 boxes and one entertainment center. They tried to add on an additional credit card fee. At the end when I was looking at the bill they show their start time at 8:45 when they didn’t show up to the house till nine and then they try to say that we were done at one when we were really done at 12:30 and then to add Drive time into it have a half an hour 15 minutes each way..... The only words I have to say is con artist.Response to Owner response;We called in the middle of he move and expressed how we were feeling and they pretty much told us off. If their truck was not loaded with our belongings, I would have told them to get off my property! Don’t be fooled.read more

So we used apex movers because they were hired by the military to move us from lake stevens Washington to Bremerton Washington over all a 2 hr move... south. I have to say the packers were nice they were cool and very polite. However i feel like they didnt pack as well as they could have. While unpacking i found 3 broken glasses two of which went to a nice set my husbands grandparents gave to us our tv stand which is wooden and had some scuff marks on it before was missing the front piece of wood. My bed which was only 2 years old is now dipping badly in the middle when it wasnt before the move. When they came and did the pack out they forgot to check my pantry and ended up leaving behind 4 boxes granted they came back and got them that same day but still. There are a few more little things ive noticed as ive continued to unpack as well. Like my blu ray player was packed into a box and had other stuff piled on top of it with no bubble wrap or any such protection for it now it randomly turns itself off and on when it never did that before. My printer was also packed like my blu ray player was with no bubble wrap or protection for it just put into a box and had stuff piled on and around it. Like i said the staff was nice and personable and they were at least on time and kept in contact with us thru out the process but i feel like they could and should have taken more care to pack things and double or tripple wrap and pack them especially glass items or electronics and furniture.read more

This is the second time we have used Apex to move family members. The team members arrived on time. They were very courteous. Introduced themselves... and outlined their anticipated method of work. They treated our furnishings with the utmost care. They never stopped working. We were moved in good time and everything arrived in good condition. I would certainly recommend them for any move.read more
