During an office move, you may find that most of the organizing, packing, and loading is done by others. However, you will still be expected to complete certain tasks to assist with the move. Everyone working together can help make an office relocation go much more smoothly. Bekins Moving Solutions has assisted many businesses of all sizes with their office moving. Here are few of our best office moving tips for employees.
Talk to Your Boss
Before your move, it is always best to schedule some time to talk with your boss. A great time to speak about the relocation would be after a meeting regarding the move or perhaps a few weeks prior. Show initiative and ask what your boss would like your role to be regarding the move. It is also a smart idea to ask about the following:
- What items should you pack for the move?
- Any space or layout concerns regarding the new space?
- Will new offices be assigned?
- Are there any old items you could donate, sell, or throw away prior to the move?
Those in leadership will appreciate your willingness to help and your interest in the relocation. If a professional moving company is completing all of your moving tasks, it may be worth it to take some time and ensure your workspace is clean and ready to be packed.
Get Acquainted with the New Location
If your office is moving to a location nearby, it can be helpful to drive and check out the area beforehand. Get to know the roads, any potential loading issues, and the available amenities that are close by. If you are moving long-distance to a new city, do some research about your new home and share any important information with your co-workers.
Pack Your Items On Time
You should begin packing as soon as it is scheduled on the office move checklist. Do not underestimate how much there is to do, and if your boss has set out a plan then you should stick to it. If you believe that you need more time, try to start a bit earlier. If you have any concerns, make sure to get in contact with the person in charge of the move. Whether that be your boss or a designated moving representative, keeping on schedule is crucial to any office move.
Label Personal Items
If you have items that belong in your desk or are specific to your job, you need to make sure that they are put in a box with your name on it. In this way, these items will not simply be claimed by the first person to open the box at the other end and you can easily find them after the move.
