I was at my desk, and the headline hooked me: “Dallas-Fort Worth could see biggest population surge in U.S. through 2029.” I’m an office mover, and I kept reading.
Dallas/Fort Worth is the fastest-growing metro area in the nation, the article said, quoting a report compiled recently from the U.S. Census Bureau and Moody Analytics. Between 2010 and 2019, North Texas added more than 1.3 million new residents.
Several googles later, I had a few indicators pertinent to commercial office relocations:
As a moving-company professional of 20-plus years — a veteran of hundreds of local relocations, office or commercial — I see booming demographics and ask myself if AB Moving is prepared. Then I ask how we can help our customers prepare. If you’re a business contemplating a local relocation, from a long-time commercial mover, as you’re trading up, here’s a little insider knowledge.
Before a single box is taped up, ninety percent of the success of a company’s relocation has been determined in its preparation. “Give me six hours to cut down a tree,” Abraham Lincoln is said to have said, “and I’ll spend the first four sharpening the axe.” A business able to both run smoothly and move smoothly has sharpened its axe – trimmed its downtime – not in the physical office relocation but in the week to two months ahead of the move date.
Just as a city is more than its numbers, a good business move is more than pickup and delivery. For us and for you, a good commercial move begins well ahead of the moving date.
