Moving to a new office is the sign of a new beginning for your company. There may be some equipment you’ll leave behind in your previous space, but there are important things that you shouldn’t forget to bring over to your new office – and you want it to be a pleasant experience.
Some persons prefer to do things on the spur of the moment when it comes to moving office equipment; however, this shouldn’t be the case. You need to plan early when moving all of your office equipment because if you decide to wing it, you might end up flustered, forgetting details or even leaving important stuff behind at your previous space. It’s important to plan early so that everything will be in place when you move to your new office space. Try to make a list of the important things that you need to bring, and organize them according to their classification. Also, it’s worth noting that you should also prepare your moving budget.
Find a Great Moving Company
Before hiring a moving company, make sure that you get a quote from at least three moving companies in your area, and see which one fits best for your needs. If your budget permits, hire a full service moving company since it’ll be the one handling all the heavy lifting for you, from packing, loading, unloading and moving. If you’re still having trouble finding for one, you can ask your friends and family for trusted contacts, and narrow down your search from there.
Have a Moving Manager
Even if you’re dividing the moving tasks, it’s important to appoint a move manager to coordinate and follow up on each step to ensure everything is going smoothly. Within your staff, the most qualified person for this position is most likely an administrative assistant or someone who has experience in logistics or commercial relocations.
