Handle Your Office Relocation Task The Right Way

Handle Your Office Relocation Task The Right Way

16Jun 2015

Moving office and relocating to a different area can be a tough, time consuming and often debilitating task, but if do it the right way and stick to some of the basics, the process can go by without a hitch.

1.    Create a moving checklist.
Juggling an office move whilst trying to stay on top of business can be an arduous task. That’s why it’s a good idea to get organised and get a plan in place. List every task that you need to do in order of importance and then get to them so that you can begin ticking things off your list. As the list becomes smaller, hopefully you’ll begin to get a sense of achievement which should be enough to spur you on to complete everything else on your list.

2.    Hire a removal company to suit your specific requirements.
You should ideally start searching for a moving company well in advance of your office move, because leave it until the last few days and you won’t really have a choice as to which company you pick. Leave yourself plenty of time so that you can do your research and make an informed decision as to what company to book with. Call up a few removal companies and accumulate some price quotes for your office move. Also, be mindful of the fact that removal vans come in different sizes, so ask the right questions and tell the company everything you plan on moving. Based on the information you give them, they should be able to decipher what vehicle will be best suited for your job. Don’t end up paying in excess for services and space that you don’t really need, so finding the right moving van is essential for a successful office move.

3.    De-clutter and get rid of any items that you no longer need.
If you’re someone that has papers and files piled high up on your desk, de-clutter before you move into the new office space. If the files are important and confidential try and convert them and store them electronically. By doing this you’ll be able to do without those large and rather unsightly filing cabinets in your new office, freeing up some extra space and making your office look more attractive.

4.    Plan before you move in.
Make sure that you know what the layout of your new office space is like. If you know this, you can plan what to put where before you move in, saving you time from faffing around on moving day.

5.    Office removals and storage.
If your new office isn’t quite ready yet, perhaps if it needs decorating or a good old clean before you begin moving your possession in, it might be worth considering putting your office equipment into storage. There are many storage companies out there, all with top notch secure storage facilities, so you can be rest assured that your important office electronics and confidential business documents will safe whilst you get your new office up and running. When you’re calling around moving companies and looking the best deals, be sure to ask if they provide any services in addition to the office removals service on moving day.  They may be able to provide you with a storage service, and if you book multiple services from the same company, you should be able to save some money and get a multiple service deal or something similar. But be sure to ask if this is the case before you make a firm decision, because you don’t want to be left disappointed or out of pocket.
