While balanced calendars are growing more widely acknowledged, regularly, we encounter educational institutions with restricted job schedules happening mostly between the months of June and September. We participate routinely in several local school relocations of virtually every complexity and size. While the wide majority of local school moving stipulates our crew to be on-site to move goods and technology to and from short-term storage facilities during larger construction projects, Corrigan is also capable of providing solutions to newly constructed facilities.
A Conventional School Move: The Evaluation
Through the move out phase of a project, our crew of skilled professionals is usually responsible for handling the disassembly of furniture, packing equipment and relocating items to a protected storage facility. And, despite its seemingly easy procedure, there is a slew of particulars that must be planned for prior to moving a school.
To start, and for proper planning, an overall job assessment needs to take place. Throughout this process, a commercial relocation professional from the Corrigan team will generally complete a “walk through” of the location or buildings involved. He or she will accumulate details relative to the scale and difficulty of the school moving job, including the placement of all items to be relocated. Depending on the actual project itself, this can be a chain of classrooms, offices or departments.
While the general location is assessed, our commercial moving team of experts will also be determining furniture and technology included as part of the move. They’ll be asking about details, like if any pieces will require disassembly and reassembly as a piece of this project. If disassembly is required, for cubicles or other commercial systems, our experts will also want to know if there’s any rearrangement scheduled for reassembling. In the case of cubicles, the pieces will be put together as they originally fit the space. Throughout this walk-through procedure, electronics such as computer systems, monitors, media and other pieces will be pointed out. Our relocation professional will be noting any disconnect and reconnection work required as well as the experience required for each part of technology being moved. In the event of moving science laboratories, or technology labs, our team will be absolutely cautious to articles requiring special care and handling, expensive equipment as well as any samples or caustic materials being relocated.
While our moving professional works to determine the physical pieces requiring to be moved, he or she will also be planning additional, and perhaps not so clear requirements of the job. When working with Corrigan, as with any skilled craftsman, there’s an extreme sense of expertise that intrinsically addresses the out-of-sight and frequently overlooked essentials non-experts lack. Our crew of trained relocation and storage experts are educated to establish the volume of goods along with any storage requirements, building protection, as well as key access locations for an extra layer of protection. We’ll be considering packing materials and supplies like how many totes, stickers and boxes are needed, in addition to dollies and speed packs required. Further, our commercial relocation expert will decide the number of crew members required, and time necessary to swiftly fulfill the needs of each specific project.
Once the specifics of the project are understood, Corrigan’s relocation professional is able to organize the details and calculate a budget for the project.
School Relocation: Phase I, Move Out
After the task of making sure all details are covered, it’s time for Corrigan’s relocation crew to join and actually do the heavy-lifting. We can say, without delay, Corrigan’s movers are some of the best intelligent and educated movers the industry has to offer. With our in-house, hands-on training facilities and corporate teacher, our relocation crews are the best of the best.
Provided the specifics and details documented from the initial project evaluation, our relocation crew will be ready to do the tasks required and keep the project on schedule. During the initial move out phase, our team will ensure the facility is correctly protected, including protecting all door jams, walls and floors in traveled spots. We will correctly document each spot and the pieces being moved, accomplish any needed packing as well as correctly disassemble and box up any pieces needing our crew’s attention. Our team will appear on-time, with the appropriate equipment to ensure all schedules are reached.
Once our moving team has appropriately packed all articles, they will be placed into interim 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 tradesmen.
School Relocation: Phase II
Though Phase II of the relocation process for most schools is booked, Corrigan realizes this is a ballparked timeline dependent on all other trade work is complete. Assuming there are no delays in the building stage of the project, Corrigan will initiate phase II at the first discussed scheduled day and time.
Basically this stage of the school relocation job is reverse of phase I. Our team will again guarantee the property and facilities are properly protected, protecting all traveled locations, including door jams, elevator entrances, walls and flooring. Items will be delivered out of storage and moved to their appropriately labeled location. Our moving crew will work to reassemble any furniture, before setting up technology and devices.
Once items are effectively delivered to their appropriate area, and all reconnection services have been completed, our crew will conduct one last walk through with appropriate school representatives to see that all tasks have been correctly completed to the finest level Corrigan is known for.
