There are several reasons to move your business to a new office space. Some of those reasons might be a lease that has expired, your business has grown and requires more space, or you may be in an office that has too much square footage and feel you could get by with less. Whatever the reason may be, moving to a new office space can seem overwhelming and downright daunting at times. RC Van Services is here with some items for your checklist when preparing for an office move.
Decide on a Moving Date
The first thing that needs to be done is get a moving date figured out. Get out the calendar and pin down a time that works best for you and your employees. Then you can start making more arrangements around this date.
Notify Employees to Moving Date
Once you have a date picked out, you can let your employees know. This is a good time to create a moving team if it’s needed. By letting employees know as soon as possible, you will have a better chance of getting the help you need. Employees may need to make arrangements to help on the moving day if it isn’t a day they are usually scheduled work. This will help create a seamless transition.
Hire Professional Movers and Packers
This needs to be done early in the moving process to ensure you get a reliable and trustworthy company. By taking care of this early on, you will have the chance to do some research and find the company that best suits your needs. If it is in your budget, hiring professional packers can drastically simplify a move. Hiring professional packers can make a move more time efficient and could end up saving you money by allowing your office to be set up quicker. You want things up and running as soon as possible.
Furniture Rearrangement for Your New Office Space
Depending on your new space, you may need to purchase furniture. If your new office space is smaller, you will need to do some downsizing. This all takes time. The sooner you can get to the new space and make plans, the better. Making a detailed plan and layout of your new office will help your employees know what is expected and they can better help in the process.
Keep Staff Happy, Motivated & in the Loop
Keep your employees in the loop as much as possible. They will be able to help you inform clients and customers about the location and timeline of your move. Having your checklists up in break rooms and other common spaces is a good way to keep the lines of communication open. This will help your staff feel involved, and help you take advantage of their help and cooperation.
