Business relocation

No relocation project is like any other.

When an entire company relocates, individually developed structures are transplanted. There is no such thing in this case as an off the peg removal plan. Therefore, the sooner you involve us in your objectives, the more comprehensively our experience can contribute to a common plan.

Relocation planning / coordination

The move of many employees, workplaces, machines and devices needs to be planned and coordinated. For this we have founded our own planning department. Save downtime and training with perfectly coordinated processes.

Smooth implementation

In addition to the exact relocation planning, a smooth implementation is just as important, so that the production processes of the customer are not affected. For the transport of extra heavy or technologically sensitive systems, we are well trained and equipped.

After the relocation

Our Facility Management Department founded to take care of our customers before and even after the move. These range from the broom-clean handover of the old property, to the commercial supervision and control of all trades for the new premises.

We plan your solution step by step

The first step is to electronically record your removals goods. On this basis, we create a complete set of removals logistic with detailed planning and cost planning. Customised project- and process planning follow. They are so designed that downtime for your business is kept to a minimum.

We realize company moves of all kind all over the world. Therefore, Geuer looks back to 30 years of experience as moving company and planer of industrial relocations. The Geuer International GmbH is always developing since the early eighties. Out of a small business for private moves and furniture transports grew a midsize company for business relocations. Today, the company employs around 100 people for moves and transportations of companies of all industries.

The service offers from Geuer are growing continuously and cover all relocation attendances. We transport workstations from production, administration, research and many other departments on a daily basis.
But with Geuer you get more than just a transport. We also highly concern ourselves with the moved items as well as all connected special requirements like the installation or checking for functionality of all devices after the transport. Make your new location to a full-value asset with a relocation from Geuer and enjoy the advantage of a perfectly planned move or even a whole location shifting. That means little to zero downtime and no chaos for your employees while getting used to the new location. Critical points of a relocation like the familiarization of the staff to the new working place or machine failure will be minimized with the expertise of Geuer and are usually not happening at all. Ask our experts about the fitting relocation package for your company. We are pleased to provide helpful tips to let your move be performed smooth and safely.

Spezialtransporte
Professional transportation of sensitive EDP

The goods of company relocations mostly consist usually mostly out of EDP-devices and machines. For the sensitive handling of EDP-systems, like servers and terminal devices, Geuer appoints a team of EDP-specialists. Our personnel is trained for the wiring of workstations and for the transportation of server systems and ensure the functionality of all devices at their new location. Often our customers are happy to only have to push the start button and everything works perfectly. Because our EDP-team reinstalls everything, just as they uninstalled it before at the old location. The wiring of lamps, computers and ground powerstations is included.

Exact relocation coordination

The checklist for planned company relocations can be long and confusing, so mostly only experts are able to keep track. The exact coordination of every technical crew, during a company relocation, needs next to a professional project manager much more than a regular transport service provider. Thus provides Geuer for your business move a specialized team of room planners, logisticians, personnel- and resource planners. Every turn or change of the relocation planning is monitored by a project manager and will be conferred with the correspondent department of your company. All machines, devices and furniture as well as EDP-systems are under a digital assisted observation by our experts and can be redisposed at any time, due to our compilation. Changes within the rooms will be captured by our room planners and can be repatriated to single objects or workstations. This gives you the chance to always compare the old and new location. Rely on the expertise of our planning and safe time, costs and resources through far-seeing logisticians

Care and forethought, to the last detail.

For your company relocation we use modern transport vehicles, optimal packaging material and highly trained personnel. Through flexible timing, we optimise our relocation activities to the workflows of your company. Of course, this means we also pack for you overnight or at weekends.

Naturally, we can accommodate individual requests to the last detail. Because the Geuer service range is far more than just a freight forwarding company.

Moving Step by Step

 

4-6 Month before Moving:

After deciding to move, it is important to take some organizational steps at an early stage. This includes, for example, the old tenancy to terminate early, to ensure that all notice periods are met. It is also advantageous to obtain offers from moving companies in advance, which increases the chance of a relaxed and smooth move. The planning of a company move is very complex, which is why the advice of experts should play a crucial role during the preparations. The next step is now to set the move date and to inform the employees as well as customers and business partners. Also, the information about the upcoming move including new address should be sent early to tax consultants, lawyers, the tax office, insurance, etc. If necessary, the entry in the commercial register should also be changed. In addition, it is already recommended to hire craftsmen, painters, a cleaning company, installers / technicians and waste disposal companies.
