Planning A Stress-Free Commercial Move
Posted on June 16, 2022
Take the stress out of your move by working with commercial packers and movers.
Any move takes planning and coordination, especially a commercial move. There are many factors to consider when it comes to moving a business. To help alleviate some of the stress, we've put together some moving tips to get you started. Pro tip: consider hiring professional commercial movers.
It's Different From Moving Your Home
When it comes to moving your business, it's different than your home, where you pack up and move to a new location, and there's not much else to do. There are things to do with an office move way ahead of time, such as reviewing your current lease to see who is responsible for any repairs and replacing lightbulbs.
To avoid your business being affected by the move, deal with all of the IT stuff ahead of time, like hooking up phone lines, getting the internet connected, and having a plan with the packers and movers for the takedown and set up of all the IT equipment.
Don't Make Your Staff Move
Your staff already works hard, so don't ask them to assist with the move. Contact a moving services company to get a moving quote to pack your office up and use a moving truck to transport the items. If you would like a bit of a head start, look at container storage rentals to hold some of the belongings. If you are downsizing offices, consider keeping the container for additional storage.
When it comes time for the moving company to pack the items, take inventory while labeling all the moving boxes. Plan the new space ahead of time, so you know where each employee will be and where all boxes need to go. This will help to save time in the long run. Lastly, ensure all your address listings are up to date. The last thing you want is for people to be unable to locate your new office.
