We hope that our guides prove a useful overview to businesses that are planning to relocate, or those that are simply carrying out preliminary research.

Commercial moves are a difficult time for all organisations, and every member of staff- from senior management through to assistants- will start to feel the pressure as the deadline moves closer.

As an introduction to the process PHS Teacrate, an expert in crate hire for business moves and reorganisations, has published a series of guides to its online blog.

Ruth Scruton, Marketing Manager for PHS Teacrate, said: “At PHS Teacrate we know that changing premises is a significant undertaking for any company. That’s why we have produced three articles offering an overview of commercial moves.

“Our first guide is aimed at project managers who have been given the task of planning a business relation. It looks at steps to take in the six months up to move day, including assessing your needs and communicating with employees.

“Our second guide is aimed specifically at employees themselves, who may not be directly involved in the move but will still be responsible for transporting their belongings to their new premises.

“Thirdly, we have produced a guide focusing on international moves. This looks at the essential steps behind preparing for a move abroad from an employee’s perspective.

“We hope that our guides prove a useful overview to businesses that are planning to relocate, or those that are simply carrying out preliminary research.”

The guides are published on the PHS Teacrate blog page which can be seen here:

PHS Teacrate reminds companies that these guides are intended for advice only. For professional guidance on commercial moves, businesses should contact the British Association of Removers (BAR) or their chosen commercial relocation company.
