Schools & University Movers
Corrigan Moving has had the privilege of working with hundreds of educational facilities. We’ve supported public and private schools at the regional level, as well as relocating higher learning buildings and departments for our nation’s most prestigious colleges and universities. We know the various complexities that surround institutional learning and the strains placed on our countries administrators of each level.
The specifics involved in relocating a school or university can be as difficult as the classes taught. Our experienced moving professionals focus in the diversified moving demands of school systems. No matter whether your school or university is organizing a new build, renovations or is solely relocating classrooms, laboratories or administrative spaces, Corrigan is greatly recommended by the area’s most renowned school systems as well as some of the most prestigious colleges and universities across the U.S.
While balanced calendars are becoming more widely accepted, regularly, we work with educational facilities with restricted project timelines happening mainly between the months of June and September. We partake annually in several local school moves of virtually every scope and scale. While the vast majority of local school relocation need our team to be on-site to move pieces and tools to and from short-term warehouse facilities during larger construction projects, Corrigan is also able to provide solutions to recently constructed facilities.
A Typical School Relocation: The Assessment
Throughout the move out step of a project, our team of skilled professionals is generally responsible for coordinating the disassembly of furniture, packing equipment and moving goods to a safe storage location. And, despite its presumably straight forward process, there is a number of specifics that have to be planned for prior to relocating a school.
To start, and for correct planning, an overall job evaluation needs to take place. Through this process, a commercial relocation professional from the Corrigan team will generally complete a “walk through” of the location or buildings included. He or she will collect information relative to the size and scope of the school relocation job, including the whereabouts of all articles to be relocated. Depending on the particular job itself, this could be a sequence of classrooms, offices or departments.
While the main location is assessed, our commercial relocation team of experts will also be inventorying furniture and technology included as part of the move. They will be asking about details, such as if any articles will need disassembly and reassembly as part of this project. If disassembly is required, for cubicles or other commercial systems, our professionals will also need to know if there is any reconfiguration planned for reassembling. In the situation of cubicles, the pieces will be put together as they primarily fit the space. During this walk-through process, technology such as computer systems, monitors, media and other pieces will be identified. Our moving expert will be determining any disconnect and reconnection services needed along with the expertise necessary for each piece of equipment being relocated. In the event of moving science laboratories, or technology labs, our professionals will be extremely cautious to pieces requiring customized oversight and handling, expensive equipment as well as any specimens or regulated items being moved.
While our moving expert works to confirm the physical goods requiring to be moved, he or she will also be determining added, and potentially not so obvious necessities of the project. When partnering with Corrigan, as with any trained craftsman, there’s an extreme sense of knowledge that inherently addresses the unseen and routinely overlooked requirements non-experts lack. Our crew of skilled moving and storage professionals are instructed to determine the volume of items along with any storage requirements, property protection, along with important entry spots for an added layer of protection. We’ll be considering packing materials and supplies like how many totes, stickers and boxes are required, as well as carts and speed packs needed. Furthermore, our commercial moving professional will determine the number of crew members required, and time necessary to swiftly complete the demands of each individual project.
When the particulars of the project are realized, Corrigan’s moving professional is able to compile the information and calculate a budget for the project.
School Relocation: Phase I, Move Out
After the heavy-lifting of checking all details are covered, it’s time for Corrigan’s moving professionals to step in and literally do the heavy-lifting. We can boast, without hesitation, Corrigan’s movers are some of the top experienced and well-trained movers the field has to offer. With our company managed, hands-on educational facilities and corporate instructor, our moving professionals are the best in the business.
Provided the specifics and details noted from the first project assessment, our relocation team will be equipped to do the tasks required and keep the project on schedule. During the first move out stage, our crew will be certain the facility is correctly protected, including bracing all door jams, walls and floors in traveled areas. We will clearly document each location and the belongings being moved, accomplish any necessary packing as well as correctly disassemble and pack any equipment demanding our crew’s attention. Our team will appear on-time, with the proper equipment to guarantee all schedules are met.
Once our relocation team has appropriately packed all items, they will be placed into short-term storage, either on-site or, within Corrigan’s secure warehouse as determined by the school’s administration. There they will remain secured until any needed construction projects have been handled by other tradesmen.
School Moving: Phase II
Though Phase II of the relocation process for many schools is booked, Corrigan realizes this is a speculative schedule hinging on all other trade work is finished. Assuming there are no interruptions in the building phase of the project, Corrigan will initiate phase II at the initially discussed scheduled day and time.
Essentially this stage of the school moving job is reverse of phase I. Our team will again ensure the building and facilities are adequately protected, securing all traveled locations, including door jams, elevator entrances, walls and flooring. Furniture will be delivered out of storage and relocated to their correctly labeled spot. Our moving team will work to put together any furniture, before setting up equipment and devices.
Once articles are efficiently delivered to their final area, and all set up services have been finished, our team will perform one concluding walk through with appropriate school representatives to see that all work has been properly accomplished to the highest level Corrigan is respected for.
