Frequently Asked Questions
What experience do you have?
Commercial Relocations are part of the Bristol Removals Group who have been trading for 15 years, initially concentrating on domestic moves. Due to expansion we’ve added a commercial removals division to the business, enabling us to allocate specialists to your relocation.
What size relocations do you undertake?
Commercial Relocations have vast experience, our capabilities extend from relocating small offices with a hand full of people, to large corporate organisations with thousands of people. We are extremely versatile in our approach, with experience working with the public sector in the NHS, to the private sector with large IT software companies, in addition to many other organisations.
This is my first move, what do we need to do?
Commercial Relocations provide a dedicated Move Manager, who will engage with you from the start to the completion of the project, who will understand your businesses requirements and take the stress out of the project management of the move. Your allocated move manager will plan everything, from the initial planning stages to the day of the move and the subsequent clearance of the old building. Unlike other companies, you will have direct communications with your Move Manager (Not via Head Office) both email and mobile number. We provide this bespoke communications method as we understand how stressful a move can be and often there are last minute changes that you need to discuss.
