Whether you’re upscaling or downsizing, every physical business relocation brings its own stress. If you’re unprepared, multiply that stress by ten. So here’s the good news: Whether you’re a small business switching buildings or the head of an entire floor of cubicles to disassemble and reassemble . . . whatever it takes, AB Moving knows what you’re facing and will take load off your shoulders.

What’s the source of that Texas-sized confidence? We Texas’ best movers. From around the country, as large numbers of new talent flock to cities like Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Lubbock and Amarillo—thriving hubs of commerce and opportunity—for where companies want to go, we’re the go-to mover.

So if you’re in Texas, whether you’re moving up, moving back, or moving just because you can, there’s a way to make your relocation smart, efficient and cost effective. There’s a way to make sure that getting everything and everyone to a new address disrupts not one single day of what you’re in business to do. Read on and highlight at will. From many miles and many hard-earned smiles, this basic checklist, as simple as it may sound, goes a long way to de-hassling any corporate move.

  1. Set a budget. Like a GPS on the highway, a well-reasoned moving budget sets the monetary road map to get an entire company, sanely, from now to the future. AB Moving Tip #1, is to estimate your moving budget on every essential service to design, furnish and set up your new office. Don’t forget disassembling and reassembling the furniture. And don’t forget IT and telecom infrastructure restructuring.
  2. Plan early. The inalterable rule is that the sooner you begin to plan the easier the move for your entire company. From the time you think you may relocate, document your notes and correspondence as you assess where you are now and where you need to be. Lead time is its own reward—you’ll see. With time to discover where the holes are, with time to articulate exactly what you need, you increase the leverage and competition among the services you plan to use and the supplies you purchase. Good planning very often saves a bundle.
  3. Use experts. Hire a moving company that knows office relocation. It’s that simple. In the way your customers come to you for what only you can know, trust experienced moving experts to make quick work in a field you don’t know. Yes, you can load the responsibilities of a business move on the shoulders of your employees. No matter how able they are, however, the money you save may not be worth it. Let your employees do their jobs; let licensed, insured and professional movers do theirs. With your budget set and a clear vision of what you want to accomplish (see steps one and two) evaluate proposals, choose a moving company, and stay on your core mission.

The Physical Move

Clean out the underbrush. To establish your pre-move packing schedule, get with your team to determine what to pack vs. what to sell off or donate before the move. Both before and after the move, inventory all cords and all contents of your supply closet. All those years of intending to “get around to it” have come home to roost. And it feels so good. You get to send the stuff you no longer use not to the next office location but right out the door. Sweep out old materials. Go through stacks. Empty and consolidate boxes of supplies. You know the rule: If you haven’t used it in three years . . .  And not only does the Great Sweep save you money in the move, not only does it help someone else who can use it, the new clarity and order help people think better.

Equip everyone to fill and seal boxes. Suggestion: Create an “Everything box” for knick-knack necessaries such as scissors, tapes, label makers, etc—items small enough to get lost anywhere, especially for large companies with a lot of employees. To see packing grind to a halt because only one pair of scissors can be found and someone used the last bit of tape . . . well, don’t let it happen to you. (Also, before moving, confirm that each and every crate is properly packed and labelled.)

Misc. Two more quick tips: Inform the businesses around you of your move, in case you need additional parking space or need to block entrance for few hours. For smooth sailing on the other end, distribute the floor plan of the new office, each room labelled so movers get specific boxes directly to their destinations.

Clean Up & Settling in the New Office

In the mountain of moving details, it’s easy to overlook getting your new address to all the right vendors and clients—and on all the marketing materials. That’s another “don’t let this happen to you.” Touch base on business cards, social media, Google, Yelp! and any place on the web you’re listed or known. Double- and triple-check the new address on your materials—or else risk a customer or client showing up at the wrong address . . . or failing to show up at all. For the Great Unpacking, arrange work stations and flow for maximum efficiency. This is when the lost productivity of a move really can become a hit in the budget for the entire company.

This was my first time ever using a moving company. I was blown away by everything they did. They were so nice, respectful, took care of everything, fast but very careful with my items. Kept me updated on their arrival. Asked if I needed any additional help. A job well done!! Very Satisfied!!! Will recommend this company to anyone that needs help moving.

We scheduled and rescheduled our move multiple times due to our closing date being moved back. They were very responsive and accommodating. The movers showed up on our move day, were very professional and quick. We had quite a bit of stuff for them to move and they tackled it and made it look easy. When unloading our items into our house, they took great care, and asked us where we wanted everything. They even put our beds together so we were able to sleep on them right away. It made things so much easier for us! Thank you AB Moving!

Our family had to move a senior into a smaller home. Three moves were required. One to transition him from his four bedroom home into a one bedroom apartment. One to transition the remaining furniture from his large home to a different family member’s home. And another to move a piano and several large pieces of furniture and appliances within the final home. Each experience with AB moving was extremely impressive. We had three different teams for the three different moves. Every teammate was highly trained and careful. They moved everything we asked quickly. We never felt we overpaid for an hour because they worked so diligently. Watching three teams perform so well gives me a lot of reassurance about the entire rest of the company, honestly. 10/10. They worked super hard and we tipped well. Overall great experience.

I highly recommend AB Moving Co. I must admit, at first I was somewhat apprehensive about using a moving company for my move into my apartment. But now I am very happy that I did. Eddie and his crew arrived promptly to my storage facility. The three-man crew was very polite, friendly and hard-working. They knew they were on the clock so they did not waste time or my money by messing around. Eddie and his crew were careful to wrap all of my furniture carefully as there would be no damages during the move. When they departed, the crew was quick to arrive to my apartment without wasting precious time driving around "getting lost". They helped my wife and I set up our furniture and washer and dryer and organized our boxes as directed. Eddie and his workmates actually finished within the two hour minimum time. They were all polite, professional, responsible, efficient and fast. My wife and I will definitely be using AB Moving Company on our next move. Thank you, Eddie and your wonderful crew, for a job well done!

I’ve used AB Movers for two partial moves and one final and they’ve impressed me more with each move. They are professional, punctual and they do an amazing job!!Their attention to detail is great! They are very careful with your belongings and are beyond helpful! They are very reasonably priced too. I checked out several moving companies and AB Movers were the most reasonable without extra charges. They charge exactly what they quote with no hidden fees! Try them, you won’t regret it!

The crew was very professional. They were fast but careful. Everything arrived at my new house in the condition it was in when it left the old house. They disassembled then reassembled two larger pieces of furniture. They placed everything where I asked them to. It started pouring rain at the end of the move and they carefully double-covered the remaining pieces and safely brought everything inside. I'm extremely happy with their service. This is the third time I have used AB Moving Co. The other two moves were just as smooth. Highly recommend!

From the first time I contacted this company to the end of my move, I had a great experience! AB moving was a huge help to me during my move from out of state. I used their unpacking service because my apartment is up three flights of stairs and I couldn't get the big stuff myself. The crew members, Eric, Kevin, and Christian, were extremely friendly and helpful. All of the crew members were respectful of my things and professional throughout the entire experience. If you are looking for a local moving crew to help load/unload, I would highly recommend AB moving. Timely, professional, friendly, and cost-effective.

Reason for move:Our Lease was terminated by the Apartment, due to Natural disaster (winter storm damage) which happened on February month. We have a 7 days notice period to vacate the home. Usually we use to shift our home on our own, but this time we have no time. so we focused on packing. AB was referred by my Wife's Friend.About AB Moving company:The one word to say, it's an outstanding performance by the 3 guys who are involved in moving. I thought it would take at least 3 hours for shifting. Because i have lot of stuff, moreover they have to shift the things from 3rd floor to the new apartment which is also 3rd floor. They first took an assessment for 2 minutes and started their work.They didn't had a break, They didn't had any drinks, They didn't speak to anyone in phone.Their energy level is at top till they finish their work. They have 8 Years of experience in this field. They have two schedules per day. I don't how this work for them. They work more than a machine.Really Awesome Do you Guess How much time they took to complete their job?It's just 1 hour 22 minutes.... Really a stunning performance.People who go behind cheapest movers and spending lot of money per hour. I would suggest this AB moving company. Rate is also cheap and you will good satisfaction at end.Beautiful thing is that there is no damage in any of my package.Keep rocking guys.........

I was very impressed by the work ethic of the crew AB sent to help us with our move. They moved us from our third floor apartment (no elevator) to a two story house with ease. Despite the heatwave this week, these guys gave it 110% the entire time and seemed to be having a blast doing it (singing and joking around with each other). Besides the actual move, both people I spoke to on the phone to arrange the move were very professional and friendly. They were able to schedule a last minute move for us and then had no problem adjusting the time to suit our schedule. The moving details were confirmed by both email and by text message. I’ve used other moving companies in the past and had one of them give me a quote for this move. The quote that they gave me was 3x what AB ended up charging us. I’m not planning on moving again any time soon, but if something changes, I’ll definitely be calling AB. I highly recommend AB Moving.

I hired this company to move my late mother's things from a storage unit 40 minutes away to one closer to my home (easier access to start sorting through everything). The three gentlemen that came out were extremely professional and understanding. They handled my mother's things with care and got things moved in a reasonable amount of time. The time saved in hiring a moving company was well worth the money, and I would definitely use this company again in the future.

If I could give more than 5 stars, I absolutely would! I've experienced many moving companies in life and this is the 2nd one that I will remember forever. They were EXTREMELY cooperative and patient with me as my move date changed 3 or 4 times due to contractor delays. Never a peep of irritation or attitude to reschedule. Then, when moving day finally came, it was awesome. They paid attention to my guidance on items as I have several very heavy pieces and moving them takes calculation. Moved me in and even were flexible for a second trip to help empty out my rental. I felt like I had sons looking out for me! After the move, I realized that some of the cabinet pieces were not secured together and there was zero hesitation in sending a team to address this. The gentleman was so nice that he even addressed my concerns about some of my furniture and helped me remedy the situation. This had nothing to do with the move and was him simply going above and beyond! I can not Express how grateful I am to have had their support during a very stressful time for me.

AB Moving helped move our home from North Dallas to Austin area. Really appreciate their team communicating the logistics of our move from start to finish. Moving team was on time and had a lot of energy. They even swept and cleaned floors after packing and moving. Great service. Good people. Highly recommend.

AB Moving ,and more specifically the “Romo Crew” they sent, were absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! From start to finish, the process was seamless!! In fact, we were so pleased that we are hiring them again in less than a month to move us from our storage unit into our new home. They blew their competition out of the water in every category: price, friendliness, and service. No hidden fees, fast and careful work...wish I could give them 10 stars!!

This is our second time using AB Moving. Our first experience was off a recommendation and the moving crew we met day-of was top notch! Second moving experience - also excellent! This time we were able to take advantage of a promotional offer but ended up paying around the same (our moves were 3-4 years apart, just for reference and price comparison). Scheduling was easy, their staff who we communicated with also very knowledgeable and sweet. We would 100% recommend AB Moving and will definitely be calling them for our next (and hopefully final) move!
