When planning a hotel renovation, the company you select to provide FF&E logistics services will play a key role in operational efficiency and a successful renovation project. From service reliability and attention to detail to project management with time sensitivity, the right hotel logistics services help ensure your renovation project remains within its budget and timeline with minimal disruption.
Begin your search for a logistics solutions provider during the early planning phase of your hotel renovation project. Ideally, the company you hire can properly handle the full logistical needs of your project, from packing and storage of current furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) to freight management, delivery and installation of any new FF&E merchandise.
FF&E Packing & Storage
Before work can begin, the rooms and public spaces scheduled for renovation should be stripped. You will need a professional crew to pack and store all of the furniture, fixtures and equipment. A delay in removal delays construction work, putting the renovation project behind before work even begins.
The hotel logistics provider you select should be able to take care of the FF&E packing and storage for you in a timely manner.
Managing FF&E Logistics
Ideally, you will have the FF&E scheduled for removal fully inventoried and procurement of new merchandise handled well in advance. With a boom in hotel renovations, lead times for FF&E products are longer than usual, so strategic planning is necessary to ensure timely and cost-effective delivery of new merchandise.
The hotel logistics provider you select should be capable of properly handling many of the details for you, from strategic planning to inbound freight management, warehousing, delivery and installation. The company should make it possible for you access inventory and tracking data, which can be helpful in making scheduling and construction-related decisions, and assist in coordination of any necessary scheduling changes.
You will want a trained white-glove crew to ensure timely installation of your FF&E in flawless condition without damage to your facilities. The right FF&E logistics company will provide one.
