Tammy Birkmire / October 20, 2021

Relocating a business can be particularly difficult for a wide range of reasons and situations no matter if it might be; a pause in business, a new and expanded office location or even just moving items off-site for better storage and use of space. Fortunately, Birkmire Trucking offers a wide variety of storage solutions for moving businesses, including storage trailers and commercial storage containers for offices.

Our fully equipped warehouse facility and flexible commercial storage solutions are created with our customers and business partners in mind. Best of all, our storage solutions ensure you can store your items no matter how large or small while only paying for the space your business needs in one of our two centrally located warehouses in the Erie, PA area.

Struggles of Relocating a Business

One of the biggest challenges businesses face when relocating is knowing where to start. Whether you handle your business’s move on your own or choose to hire a moving company, there will be a transition period for you, your employees, and your customers.


While some of your items and business supplies are being transported to the new location or even placed in storage some employees may find it difficult to complete tasks during this transitional period, especially if their essential equipment is part of the relocation. Help ease their possible frustrations by letting them know what is happening and how your team can work together to make the transition easier.


If you decide to handle your own office relocation, be sure to keep in mind any potential circumstances that may arise. For example, you become responsible for the safety and security of your own equipment during the moving and storage process. A moving company that offers mobile storage solutions can help ease any fears you might have about getting your equipment and supplies from one place to another.


As you prepare to relocate your business, create a system for alerting your customers and the overall community about your move. By letting your clients know ahead of time you not only avoid any potential headaches and upset customers, but you can also use the opportunity to plan a grand opening celebration for your new location.

Each office move is different and that’s why Birkmire offers a variety of solutions to fit your commercial storage needs.
