Relocating your office is intimidating both physically and mentally. You need to look after many aspects of your business and employees for a successful relocation. Moving your office belongings is a crucial and challenging part of your office relocation. And there is not a whole lot of time to get the job done. However, planning and taking the help of everyone involved in the process can make your office move smooth and stress-free.
Here are some tips to help make your move to the new office space more organized.
Relocating an office is not as simple as moving from your home to a new place. Therefore, you need to start planning your move at least a month before. It will prevent any last miniature scrambles and setbacks. Set a blueprint for your new place and identify what will go where. Also, plan what items you will pack first and what you will use till the last minute.
Appoint a move manager
Even if you are going to divide the work, you need to appoint a designated move manager to ensure that the move is supervised. A move manager will take care of all the technicalities and update you on everything from time to time.
Hire professional movers
Another thing you need to do to relocate your office is hire professional movers. Professional movers have experience in packing all your office furniture and equipment without damaging them. Check with them how much involvement would be required from your end during the move and whether they can manage the move during off days and after shift hours.
Take help from employees
Involving the employees with the move gives them a sense of belongingness to the company. Additionally, it will make it easier for everyone to find their belongings in the new place if they pack them themselves. You can ask your employees to pack their desk items themselves and label them.
Take care of I.T
Any office space is incomplete without the tech setup. Ensure that your I.T setup is disconnected and packed carefully and then set up again at the new location. You can ask for professional help if you feel that internal technicians may have trouble managing everything alone.
Put address change orders in place
After the move, you would want all your mail orders and communications at your new place. For that, you need to update all your business documents with the new address beforehand. You should put an official notification on your business website. Also, don’t forget to get new letterheads and other stationery with the new address.
