Even though balanced calendars are becoming more widely acknowledged, regularly, we work with educational institutions with limited job timelines taking place primarily between the months of June and September. We participate yearly in various local school moves of nearly every difficulty and size. Though the vast majority of local school relocation requires our professionals to be on-site to relocate furniture and technology to and from brief warehouse facilities during larger building projects, Corrigan is also capable of providing solutions to recently constructed facilities.
A Typical School Move: The Estimation
Through the move out stage of a project, our team of trained experts is usually responsible for coordinating the disassembly of furniture, packing equipment and relocating goods to a protected storage location. And, regardless of its seemingly straight forward operation, there is a slew of specifics that have to be addressed before relocating a school.
To start, and for adequate strategizing, an overall job estimate must take place. Through this process, a commercial relocation expert from the Corrigan team will generally conduct a “walk through” of the location or facilities included. He or she will collect info relative to the size and scope of the school moving project, including the location of all articles to be moved. Based on the specific job itself, this may be a series of classrooms, offices or departments.
While the primary location is reviewed, our commercial moving team of experts will also be inventorying furniture and equipment included as part of the move. They’ll be asking for specifics, such as if any articles will be needing disassembly and reassembly as a piece of this project. If disassembly is necessary, for cubicles or other business furniture, our professionals will also need to know if there’s any reconfiguration scheduled for reassembling. In the case of cubicles, the pieces will be reassembled as they originally fit the area. Throughout this walk-through procedure, equipment such as computer systems, monitors, media and other articles will be shown. Our moving expert will be determining any disconnect and reconnection work required as well as the skill-level required for each part of equipment being relocated. In the case of relocating science laboratories, or technology labs, our team will be extra sensitive to items demanding unique protection and handling, valuable equipment as well as any samples or hazardous items being moved.
While our relocation expert works to determine the physical goods needing to be moved, he or she will also be gauging other, and perhaps not so clear needs of the job. When collaborating with Corrigan, as well as any trained craftsman, there is an inherent sense of expertise that innately addresses the unseen and frequently forgotten requirements non-experts lack. Our crew of skilled moving and storage experts are educated to identify the volume of furniture in relation any storage needs, property protection, as well as critical access locations for an added level of protection. We’ll be determining packing materials and supplies for example the amount of totes, stickers and cartons are required, along with carts and speed packs necessary. In addition, our commercial moving expert will decipher the number of crew members required, and time involved to swiftly meet the requirements of each specific project.
When the specifics of the job are realized, Corrigan’s moving professional is able to organize the specifics and calculate a proposal for the project.
School Moving: Phase I, Move Out
After the heavy-lifting of making sure all particulars are handled, it’s time for Corrigan’s moving professionals to enter and actually do the heavy-lifting. We can boast, without hesitation, Corrigan’s movers are some of the top versatile and well-trained movers the industry has to offer. With our company managed, hands-on training facilities and corporate trainer, our relocation crews are the cream of the crop.
Given the information and details shared from the primary project assessment, our moving crew will be prepared to do the tasks required and keep the project on schedule. During the primary move out process, our crew will make sure the building is adequately protected, including bracing all door jams, walls and floors in traveled areas. We will clearly tag each spot and the belongings being transferred, accomplish any necessary packing as well as properly disassemble and pack any equipment needing our crew’s review. Our team will approach on-time, with the correct tools to guarantee all timelines are reached.
After our moving team has securely packed all items, they will be placed into short-term storage, either on-site or, within Corrigan’s secure warehouse as agreed to by the school’s administration. There they will remain secured until any needed construction projects have been handled by other vendors.
School Moving: Phase II
Although Phase II of the relocation process for many schools is booked, Corrigan realizes this is a speculative timeline pending all other vendor work is accomplished. Providing there are no interruptions in the construction phase of the project, Corrigan will start phase II at the initially discussed reserved day and time.
Essentially this stage of the school relocation job is reverse of phase I. Our professionals will again make sure the property and facilities are appropriately protected, securing all traveled spots, including door jams, elevator entrances, walls and flooring. Pieces will be delivered out of storage and transported to their correctly labeled spot. Our moving crew will work to assemble any furniture, before setting up equipment and devices.
Once items are successfully delivered to their proper area, and all reconnection services have been completed, our team will conduct one concluding walk through with assigned school representatives to ensure that all tasks have been properly completed to the top level Corrigan is revered for.
