In a word, no. In more words, let's count the ways.

Moving to a fresh business space in Oklahoma City is a wonderful thing--it suggests your company is successful and growing. It is also a pain, because you have got to pack pretty much everything up and move it to the new space.

Talking about trucks. There is an art in addition to a science to recognizing not merely the quantity you'll need, but what kind. In case you are moving heavy components, you could possibly need to have a moving van with a lift gate and a crew who knows the way to lift and load without hurting themselves. Plus there is the actual loading--packing the cargo area to ensure that nothing shifts, drops, or breaks in the course of transport is a task of engineering best not left to amateurs.
