In a word, no. In additional words, let us count the ways.

Moving to a fresh company space in Little Rock is a wonderful thing--it suggests your company is thriving and expanding. It's also a headache, considering that you need to pack pretty much everything up and move it to the new place. In actual terms this means a bit of downtime for the move preparation, travel, and setting everything back up in the new place. In addition, it signifies extra outlay of money at a time when you're already paying out considerable dollars for an office uplift, so you may be tempted to save a little bit of cash by packing and moving yourself.

Your Investment Is Definitely Worth Professional Packing

Do not attempt to DIY this item. Businesses today operate on technology, and the components of that technology have a sensitivity which belies their workhorse capabilities. Really the only possible method you might pack up all your hardware is if you saved all the original packaging from all your purchases. And of course if you know how to repack in reverse. Be honest--you did not, and you wouldn't know in case you had.

Ask your accountant just how much you have allocated to components and equipment--that round number should be enough to convince you that appointing professional movers in Little Rock is worth the price. If it isn't, ask your insurance company if they will pay for any damages you sustain if you drop your new laptop computer or 3D printer--they may probably pay for losses, after a substantial deductible.

The Experts Know

Professional office moving companies possess the experience, supplies, and equipment to pack all of the delicate devices and also not-so-delicate hefty furniture. Because you didn't hold on to all the boxes and padding components, you need more of them to pack and secure all your computers and technology. Professional packers understand which components to make use of and also have access to industrial supplies (things like shaped cardboard) that supply businesses tend not to usually keep in stock.

Furthermore, they understand how to create cartons, crates, and cushioning to move the big stuff, such as enormous copiers, refrigerators, and file cabinets and load them onto the trucks securely.

Talking about trucks. There is an art and a science to recognizing not just the number you'll need, but what kind. If you're moving heavy machines, you could require a truck with a lift gate and a team who knows how to lift and load without hurting themselves. Plus there is the actual loading--packing the cargo space in order that nothing shifts, drops, or breaks throughout moving is a job of engineering best not left to rookies.
