Thinking of moving your office, store or factory? It’s not a decision you can take lightly. Call a moving company – any moving company – and they’ll gladly send out a crew that can move you from here to there.
But we all know it’s not that simple. Depending on the size and complexity of your move, you want to ensure your move takes place smoothly with little interruption to your business.
No business can afford to shut down for extensive period. But with good planning, preparation and schedule, your business will be back up and running at your new location without missing a beat.
Whether you’re moving a single office or an entire office building, this is a big move for you. We can handle every aspect of your move and still your business running.
It takes special skills and equipment to safely and efficiently relocate a factory, shop, warehouse or any other industrial business.
Technology is the heartbeat of your business. Moving your entire IT infrastructure or just a computer network takes special care and experience with technology.

Rigging and Plant Relocation
Relocating a plant is an enormous task made even more difficult by the rigging requirements needed to safety breakdown and prepare equipment for moving.
Need to move something different, something that requires special skills, training, equipment or permitting, call us. We’re up for the challenge.
We move people too. We understand that sometimes a business needs to move their executives to a new location. We have a process for facilitating those moves.
The AST Difference
A Proven Moving Process
In many ways, moving day is the easy part. That’s assuming we’ve done all the necessary planning and preparation leading up to the move. As a moving specialist for the past 30 years, we use an established process for all of commercial moving assignments.
- Pre-Move Planning
- Pre-Move Preparation
- Moving Day (or Days)
- Post-Move Cleanup and Quality Checks
This is just the overview. For a more detailed checklist of our process, please call us at 508-877-6600.
Leading-Edge Moving Equipment
The moving industry has come a long way in recent years. And that goes for the equipment we now use to make our moves safer, most efficient and less costly.
Purge and Shred Bins – We use RentaCrates’s shredding bins to purge and secure your sensitive documents and ensure they are destroyed in compliance with privacy laws.
Crate and Dolly Systems – We use Pak-N-Stak crate and dolly system to move your legal and letter size files, lateral cabinet drawers, binders, books, and personal desk contents.

Customer Staff Training
With every move, our customer is asked to assign an individual or a team of people to coordinate with our moving team to ensure clear communications and a smooth move.
But we take it a step further. We put in place very specific training for your “move coordinator(s)” so they can be prepared for every step in the move process.
Union and Non-Union Crews
Every business is different and some businesses can only hire union crews.
We respect that choice and can provide your moving assignment with union moving crews. Just let us know ahead of time and we’ll be sure to meet your requirements.
Depending on your needs, we can provide off-hours scheduling to minimize interruption of your business day.
For larger moves, we can also provide staggered scheduling to spread out the move over several days so only one department is interrupted at a time.
Permits and Police Details
These are things that are often overlooked by inexperienced movers. It may not be needed for every move, but when if permitting and police details are needed, we will know about it and we will take care of it.
Price & Service Guarantee
Every service we offer comes with a ironclad price and service guarantee. When we give you an estimate, it will be detailed and guaranteed. You also don’t get billed until the job is done and you are completely satisfied with the work. We’ve been doing it this way for 30 years and we don’t see any reason to stop.
