Retail Business

Geographic Market: Chicago, Illinois

Industry: Retail

Budget: $30,000

Duration: 1 Month

Services: Decommissioning, Installation

When a local retailer decided to move on from the temporary swing space, their first call was to MAC Relocations to facilitate the removal of all furniture and equipment from the space.

The office space was filled with over 100 workstation cubicles, each with a chair , mobile pedestal and height adjustable desk. The first step was removing all chairs from the location. Then, each desk was unplugged and carefully removed. Since the office was in Chicago, each workstation was hard wired for power. After having an electrician disconnect the stations, each junction box was carefully and safely removed. That just left the cubicles, which were taken apart and securely packed for removal from the site. Lastly, the site was cleaned and returned to its original broomswept condition.

Property Management Company

Geographic Market: Chicago, Illinois

Industry: Property Management

Budget: $45,000

Duration: 4 Months

Services: Furniture Removal, Commercial Storage, Reinstallation

A local property management company wanted options to disposition furniture assets in a space they were renovating for a client. They turned to MAC Relocations to help them to find cost-effective solutions and implement a strategy resulting in cost savings and furniture reuse. MAC was tasked to remove the office furnishings, temporarily store them and return them when the space was renovated.

MAC’s Relocation Consultant first met with the property manager to understand the scope of the project and compile an inventory of furniture items to be removed and stored. We then created an operational plan and budget to meet the project timeline. Once the project was awarded and the project was kicked-off, we disassembled and carefully packed all furniture items. Upon removal the assets were placed into secure storage at MAC’s 40,000 sq ft Chicago commercial storage facility.

Once the renovation was complete, MAC returned all the furniture to the facility. Working with the property manager’s team MAC staged and installed the furniture accordingly to the mast how er layout plan. Prior to returning the furniture, each item was thoroughly inspected and cleaned as an ancillary service provided by MAC. The project was completed on time and budget with no loss or damage to the client’s furniture. It ultimately saved the end user thousands of dollars by reusing its existing furniture and eliminated over 100 tons of material ending up in a landfill.
