Planning an office move can be both exciting and stressful. The end result is enticing, a shiny new workplace for ultimate productivity. But, the actual process of moving? Daunting. Don’t start stressing out too much. As long as you plan your office move, it can be smooth and (almost) stress-free.
Before the Move
The moving process starts before the packing. Have a plan and get organized to make this process as pain-free as possible.
Don’t leave planning for the last minute. It can take months to properly organize an office for a move. Start with a clear To-Do list and keep making adjustments as you go.
It can be hard to keep documents organized during the hustle and bustle of regular business. Before you start packing, get your documents in order. The last thing you want is to misplace anything important in the shuffle of a move.
Get Employees Onboard
Involve your employees in the move. Think about asking for volunteers to join the “Moving Department” and create an e-mail just for moving-related questions. More hands-on-deck and clear communication will make a move easier for all involved.
Keep or Toss
Start deciding what will make the move with you and what you can leave behind. Mark unused office furniture and supplies for removal during the move. Don’t waste time, energy, or money moving unnecessary items.
During the Move
Keep things moving by following the plan you have in place.
Pack It Up
Keep things organized and easy to find by packing efficiently. Label everything! Make sure important documents stay together and take priority.
Hire a Moving Crew
Let the pros take care of moving your office. If you have everything organized and labeled, this part should be a breeze.
After the Move
Before you can get settled into your new office, there are a few loose ends you need to tie up at the old one.
Hire a Cleaning Crew
Make sure you get that security deposit back by hiring professionals to come prep the space for the next tenant.
