As one of the top moving companies in the Twin Cities and surrounding area, we’ve conducted a lot of different moves. These range from the usual apartments and houses to storage units chock full of Halloween props. We’ve moved towering statues, and custom aquariums. We’ve seen it all, and we like to share some of our experience with you. Who knows? Maybe it’ll help you out on your next move, or give you a couple ideas on how to get out of a pickle. There are always hiccups in the moving process, and here at College Muscle Movers, we want to help you make the most of your Twin Cities move.
This is the story of the Musical Credenzas.
College Muscle Movers had been brought in for a fairly simple office job just outside of the Twin Cities. There was a little bit of remodeling, a little bit of rehiring and a little bit of promotion. That meant some offices and cubicles were getting moved around. CMM brought the muscle.
Upon arrival, the movers discovered they were moving furniture exclusively. Some desks, but mostly big metal credenzas. If you’re unfamiliar with office furniture, the credenza has a tendency to be extremely heavy. Often made out of metal, with a big wood slab slapped on top. Real monsters.
Anyway, after a few hours of moving these giant credenzas from office-to-office, the HR coordinator directing the move discovered that a few employees had actually arranged to trade furniture with others. Some credenzas and desks were being split up from each other. One office worker had decided to stack two credenzas atop one another (he really needed the extra storage.)
The movers just smiled and kept moving.
At the end of the day, however, some of the credenzas had been moved to 2 or 3 different rooms before reaching their final location. There was a lull in the middle of the move when a desk had to be temporarily removed so that a rug could be taken out and put in another office. All of this after the initial credenzas and desks had been moved.
The confusion, while reasonable, caused the move to take significantly longer than it might if it had been more meticulously organized. The most important thing was to make sure everyone’s office was set up the way they needed, of course, but the whole process could have been made more efficient. Here at CMM, we do our best to plan with you or your organization. We want your move to run as smoothly and efficiently as possible, especially in a busy office setting.
It’s important to remember that sometimes you’ll be thrown a curveball when you’re planning on moving (trying to orchestrate a whole intra-office move can’t be so far off from herding cats). Also remember that your moving company is there to help you! We’ll do our best to help you prepare for your Twin Cities move, whether it’s an office, an old garage, or a new three bedroom house.
