Running a business is difficult, but tack on the additional stress of an office move and you may feel like managing things is downright impossible. Coordinating employee relocation, furniture packing, and notifying client of your new address can be too much for some. You don’t have to do all this alone. Instead, contact the experts at Bekins Moving Solutions. We have decades of experience in helping organizations of all sizes. Our team would like to share with you how to plan the perfect, seamless, stress-free office move.
Create a Moving Committee
The first step in planning your office move should involve creating a moving committee of other employees who can commit just a little of their workday to assisting in some aspect of the move. Put one person in charge of ensuring all personal items are removed before the big moving day. Put another employee in charge of cleaning. The key is to delegate tasks across the group, so no one is stuck with excessive duties. If you need help, Bekins Moving Solutions can provide a commercial moving consultant that can assist you from start to finish.
Research Your New Location
While many people focus on packing and loading, they tend to forget the arrival to the new office. Make sure to do research about where you are moving. If you are relocating to a new city or state, it can be helpful to learn a bit about the history, events, and amenities the city provides. Put together a packet for your employees with the following information:
- Directions to the new building
- A bit about the new city or state
- What employees can expect once they arrive
- What duties each employee has when they arrive
- Reimbursement for relocation expenses
- New rules and regulations of the building
- Where they can park
- What they should bring to assist in settling in
- A start date when business will resume
- A number to contact for questions or moving issues
Provide this information to each employee. This can assist in minimizing confusion during the office relocation.
Create a Moving Checklist
Keeping organized is key during your move. By creating your own moving checklist, you can ensure you will have everything done come moving day. Sit down with a few employees from your committee and create a list of everything you will need to have done. You can also check out one of Bekins Moving Solutions’s handy moving checklists for ideas.
