Moving your office

Moving your office

Moving a home can be tough, but moving an office can be considerably tougher.  Not only do you have to work out how to move your electronic, office furniture and supplies without them being rendered inactive for too long a period but you also need to pack hundreds, if not thousands, of critical documents and files that you simply cannot afford to lose.  The good news is that there are some tried and true tips to help you to relieve the pressure of your office move and get back to work as quickly as possible.

One good tip is to make sure that you have familiarized yourself with your new office early on.  This is crucial, as it means you will be able to get on with unpacking the moment the move has been completed.  You will already know if there is the space for all your furniture and documents or if some of your file storage or the work space will need to be reconfigured.  Measure all areas, visualize how it will all look with your own file cabinets and furniture in place, and search for working outlets.

You will be very reliant on the moving company that you have hired to move your office; therefore, it is vital to choose an experienced office moving company that has a reputation for being timely and reliable.

Make sure that you have checked with your current and future building managers so that you can make use of the service elevators on the day of the move.  This should be done prior to confirming the moving date with your moving company.
