Even though balanced calendars are becoming more widely acknowledged, more often than not, we collaborate with educational institutions with strict project dates taking place mostly between the months of June and September. We participate annually in various local school relocations of virtually every scope and scale. Though the vast majority of local school moving need our team to be on-site to move furniture and technology to and from brief warehouse facilities during larger construction jobs, Corrigan is also able to provide solutions to newly constructed facilities.
A Standard School Relocation: The Evaluation
During the move out step of a project, our team of trained professionals is typically responsible for handling the disassembly of furniture, packing equipment and relocating goods to a safe storage location. And, in spite its presumably easy process, there is a number of particulars that have to be discussed prior to moving a school.
To start, and for correct strategizing, an overall project evaluation needs to take place. Throughout this process, a commercial relocation professional from the Corrigan team will typically perform a “walk through” of the location or buildings included. He or she will accumulate details related to the scale and complexity of the school relocation job, including the whereabouts of all articles to be relocated. Depending on the specific project itself, this may be a chain of classrooms, offices or departments.
While the main area is reviewed, our commercial relocation team of professionals will also be inventorying furniture and equipment included as part of the move. They will be asking questions, such as if any articles will require disassembly and reassembly as a portion of this project. If disassembly is required, for cubicles or other commercial systems, our team will also want to know if there’s any reconfiguration planned for reassembling. In the situation of cubicles, the panels will be put together as they initially fit the location. During this walk-through procedure, electronics such as computer systems, monitors, media and other articles will be noted. Our moving professional will be noting any disconnect and reconnection services necessary as well as the skill-level necessary for each part of technology being relocated. In the event of moving science laboratories, or technology labs, our team will be extra sensitive to articles demanding special protection and handling, expensive pieces along with any specimens or caustic materials being relocated.
While our relocation professional works to document the tangible furniture requiring to be moved, he or she will also be gauging added, and potentially not so obvious requirements of the job. When collaborating with Corrigan, along with any trained craftsman, there is a built-in sense of experience that intrinsically addresses the out-of-sight and routinely neglected basics non-experts lack. Our crew of knowledgeable relocation and storage experts are trained to determine the amount of goods related to any storage needs, building protection, along with critical access locations for an added layer of protection. We’ll be evaluating packing materials and supplies such as the amount of totes, stickers and boxes are needed, in addition to dollies and speed packs required. Further, our commercial moving expert will decide the number of crew members necessary, and time required to swiftly fulfill the requirements of each individual project.
Once the details of the job are understood, Corrigan’s moving expert is able to organize the specifics and calculate a bid for the project.
School Relocation: Phase I, Move Out
After the task of making sure all particulars are handled, it’s time for Corrigan’s moving team to join and literally do the heavy-lifting. We can say, without a doubt, Corrigan’s movers are some of the most experienced and educated movers the field has to offer. With our company managed, hands-on educational locations and corporate instructor, our relocation teams are the best in the business.
Given the information and details shared from the first job evaluation, our moving crew will be ready to do the tasks required and keep the project on your timeline. During the primary move out phase, our team will make sure the facility is correctly protected, including securing all door jams, walls and floors in traveled areas. We will clearly label each location and the items being moved, accomplish any required packing as well as appropriately disassemble and pack any equipment demanding our crew’s consideration. Our crew will arrive on-time, with the proper equipment to be sure all schedules are reached.
After our relocation team has securely packed all pieces, they will be relocated into temporary storage, either on-site or, within Corrigan’s supervised warehouse as decided by the school’s administration. There they will remain secured until any required construction projects have been finished by other vendors.
School Moving: Phase II
Though Phase II of the move process for many schools is booked, Corrigan understands this is a ballparked timeline pending all other vendor work is finished. If there are no interruptions in the construction phase of the project, Corrigan will assume phase II at the originally discussed reserved day and time.
Essentially this phase of the school moving job is opposite of phase I. Our professionals will again guarantee the property and facilities are appropriately protected, protecting all traveled spots, including door jams, elevator entrances, walls and flooring. Items will be delivered out of storage and transported to their properly determined location. Our moving team will work to assemble any furniture, before setting up technology and devices.
Once pieces are efficiently delivered to their appropriate location, and all connection services have been accomplished, our crew will conduct one final walk through with designated school representatives to ensure that all work has been appropriately completed to the highest degree Corrigan is respected for.
