The first impression your clients have of you and your company is extremely important. The client will build an expectation based on that initial impression and they’ll remember that impression when they leave, whether you exceeded it or not. The problem you’ll face will come when your office has seen better days and is starting to show age and wear. If that’s the case, your client will instantly have a poor expectation of the work or service you provide. After all, if you don’t take care of your office, how will you take care of them? You’re fighting an uphill battle. An FF&E Company can help to take care of the details for you.
Deciding to refurbish your office is an important decision that can have a huge impact on your client’s impression of your company. When choosing an installation company to help you transition with the new furniture, fixtures, and equipment you’ll need, ensure the company meets your expectations and needs in the following categories:
Furniture, Fixture, and Equipment Services You Need
Selection and Shipping
Many relocation services are limited in their resources and partnerships, making the process of refurnishing your office much more difficult. At The Quality Group, we partner with interior designers that have extensive knowledge in furniture selection. This strong partnership helps to give you the options you’ll need to find exactly what furniture, fixtures, and electronics you want.
After our partners at the interior design company select the perfect furniture for you, The Quality Group can help to order the furniture within a reasonable time frame. If you have limited space in your office or you can’t receive a delivery at any time, we have the ability to receive the shipment of furniture, fixtures, and equipment for you. From there, it’s important to ask about storage and warehousing.
Storage and Warehousing
Your office has limited space because it’s already filled with furniture and fixtures leaving no spare room for new items on top of the old ones. This means you can’t store the new furniture in your office while waiting for all of it to arrive from the different suppliers. You also may want to do the update room by room to limit operational disruption. For these reasons or others, if you want the new furniture, fixtures, and equipment to be stored off site until you are ready for it at your office, ensuring your installation company can store everything for you will be essential.
Ask your installation company if they have the storage room for your furniture and equipment. A professional installation company like The Quality Group will have warehousing space capable of storing your furniture until you need it at your office. They will also inventory check the items that you ordered for accuracy and quality control. Once your installation company has every item in, they’ll arrange for shipping to your office on your schedule.
Delivery and Installation
Updating your office is a massive project that can be taken in small steps or be done all at once. For your specific needs, verifying your delivery options with your installation company is important. The Quality Group can deliver your furniture, fixtures, and equipment in a way that is custom to your needs, whether that may be half of the new items at one time and half at another or all at once. Ask your installation company beforehand what your delivery options are.
You’ll also want to check on the installation company’s installing process. Ensure that the company will not only install case goods, which are already assembled but also knock down items, which need assembly. This will prevent you from unexpected surprises.
Every installation company is not equal. For a full-service installation company that partners with interior designers in order to take care of your every need, call The Quality Group, or ensure that the one you choose provides each of the above services. Your company update will go smoothly with a professional and customer-centric installation company supporting you.
