Procrastination is the natural enemy to transitions and activations. When corporate, institutional, or healthcare moves become rush jobs, there is a much greater likelihood that the transition will go awry. Furthermore, when big transitions like these are not thoroughly planned in advance, companies find themselves paying thousands more than they would have in a more lengthy timeframe. For this reason, hiring a move consultant should be one of the first steps you take when tasked with the job of moving office.
It’s important to note that as a policy, a lot of move consulting firms do not work on moves that have an expedited turnaround (under three months). At CMCI, we’re proud to be one of the few that considers speedy transitions, but we must admit that the time crunch limits us on what we can do to save our clients from higher expenses and stressful situations. When clients wait to call us about an upcoming project, the move mission becomes about getting it done on time instead of getting it done on time and under budget.
It’s a logical fallacy to think that waiting to plan your move will cost less money. In reality, the lack of plans will cause stress for everyone, and you will end up paying much more for the services you require when contractors must squeeze you into their already busy schedules to make sure your project is taken care of.
While we thrive working under pressure, at CMCI, we prefer the ability to truly work on your project with your people to find the best, most efficient and cost-effective solution for your transition or activation. Building relationships with our clients is a big deal to us—that’s why 92% of our clients become returning customers.
So if you’re wondering when the best time to bring a move consultant onto your project would be, we advise you to inquire sooner rather than later—it’ll save you time, stress, and the possibility of even more money in the long run.
