As a leading provider of workspace solutions, Daryl Flood believes in taking a holistic approach when it comes to the careful handling and professional management of all commercial moves.
This is true regardless of the size of the company or the magnitude of the move. As such, we are able to offer an array of out-of-the-box solutions that are often outside of the normal realm of the typical commercial mover.
This brings significant added value to our clients when they engage us for services.
Remediation of Office Space
One such out-of-the-box solution is the assistance that we provide to our clients when they are planning an office relocation, and they have repair work needed at their current location.
We find that companies are often consumed with the activities surrounding the move itself, and thus neglect the steps necessary to return their current space back to pre-move-in condition.
Not only is this an area that is commonly overlooked while in the throes of an office move, but it is one that can end up being quite costly if not properly remediated.
So, let’s have a look at the proper steps that companies should take to return their current office space back to pre-move-in condition, and the advantages of involving Daryl Flood in the process.
Re-read the Terms of Your Lease Agreement
When preparing to move out of your office facility, one of the first things that you should do is to carefully re-read the terms of your current lease agreement.
This will give you a clear picture of what your contractual obligations are as a tenant, and what your responsibilities are with regard to the turn-back condition of the space.
For example, your lease agreement might state that you are responsible for having carpets cleaned, making repairs to flooring, and for the removal of all low voltage data lines from the ceiling.
This is in addition to some of the more typical requirements included in lease agreements, such as the patching of holes in the walls and repainting where needed.
If you have been in the same building for a number of years, there might be countless other items that need to be attended to and included in the remediation.
And, for each one of those items, a different specialist might need to be called in to perform the work.
Don’t Risk Your Security Deposit
Oftentimes, companies find themselves in a bit of a jam in terms of their move timeline and are unable to manage the remediation internally before the end of their lease.
This can end up costing them either another month’s rent or the forfeiture of their security deposit.
Chances are that you paid a fairly hefty security deposit when leasing the office space, and so the last thing you want is to put that money in jeopardy by not fulfilling the tenets of your lease agreement.
Much like leasing a home, you want to be sure that you aren’t leaving behind any unsightly damage to the property that would be considered outside of normal wear and tear, so that you will be assured that your security deposit will be returned to you in full.
This one of the many areas in which Daryl Flood really shines as a commercial mover. When engaging us for services, not only will we counsel you about the remediation process, but we can also completely manage it for you.
Whether you are relocating your office, warehouse, or even a large distribution center, we know that your primary objective is to keep costs down, while maintaining business continuity at all times.
Likewise, any disruption to the regular flow of business productivity can negatively impact your company financially.
Thus, our goal is to mitigate any distractions and/or the potential for any unnecessary downtime that could be incurred by you or your team.
Daryl Flood will act much like a general contractor would, to remediate all changes, repairs, etc., while giving you the ability to manage and control the costs.
Additionally, since we have a vast network of vetted service providers, you will have the peace of mind that all work will be professionally managed and conducted.
And instead of you having to manage multiple vendors, you will have a single point of contact at Daryl Flood.
Best of all, all work will be completed before you have to return the keys to the building management company.
Planning the Remediation
As a critical component of your move, you need to properly plan for the remediation of your current space as early in the process as possible. In other words, you definitely can’t afford to leave it until the last minute.
This is because some of items may require more time to repair or change out than others, so you want to give yourself ample time for completion.
In some cases, parts might even need to be ordered, or you could run into a situation where one of the specialty companies needed is booked out several weeks in advance.
So, the sooner we can get involved; the sooner we can make things happen. Not only that, but by allowing Daryl Flood to manage the remediation for your company, that will free up valuable time so that you and your team can focus on other aspects of your move, as well as your own daily productivity.
At Daryl Flood, we continue to expand upon our array of services in order to best serve the needs of our customers. In fact, we might offer other services that you didn’t even realize were available to you.
It is for that reason that we always invite you to contact us and discuss your needs so that we can work together to come up with the most viable solution for every situation.
