If you are preparing to move office soon, you will know that it is going to be incredibly difficult to get it all organised and moving smoothly.
No matter how much you are intending to move, there are some key things you can do to ensure that the hassle is taken out of your office move. Let’s take a look at some of them now.
Hire an Interim Location
Sometimes you need a little breathing space between the two offices. There is a lot to pack you and boxes everywhere can make for a stressful working environment.
Therefore, it might be worth hiring somewhere like a storage unit to ensure that you are going to be able to clear the office bit by bit as you need.
Safestore offer secure sites around the country which you can use to store parts of your business until the new location is available. If you want to move in stages and have as little impact on your business as possible, this is the way to do it.
Even if it is your business, you should not take on the stresses of moving all by yourself. Moving is one of the biggest stresses we can submit ourselves to but the advantage of moving an office over a home is that we have many more hands to help us out.
You need to trust parts of the move to your employees. It can be something as simple as one to organising a moving van, another to ensure everything is packed up, and so on. No matter what, you need to make sure that all parts of the move are covered. Have several meetings with your team to ensure that all aspects of the move are going as smoothly as possible. Teamwork and communication are going to be absolutely key throughout.
Notify Your Energy Providers as Soon as Possible
Just as with moving to a new house, you are going to need to move your utilities from your current office to your new one. The sooner you get in touch with your account managers to move things over, the less chance there is that something will get messed up in the transfer.
Now is also the chance to look around and see if you can find a better deal. You might be able to find cheaper rates at the new office. Make sure you leave enough time to properly have a look at what is on offer so you don’t miss out on a great new deal.
Move at the Right Time
Moving in the middle of the day is likely to be very tricky. The roads could be quite busy and you don’t want to accidentally block up the only lift in either of the buildings while you are trying to move furniture.
If you move in the evenings or in the early morning, you have more of a chance of completing the move smoothly. It might make for a very long day, but it will be worth it. If you can get your furniture and office equipment in with minimal fuss, it will always be preferable to getting in the way of others in your building.
An office move is likely to be difficult but there are several things you can do to remove some of the hassles. Make sure that you are able to plan it and execute it to the best of your abilities. No matter how complicated you think your move is likely to be, there will always be a way for you to get it done in a smooth manner as possible.
