Relocating your business will always be a big undertaking, so it’s important to look at ways in which you can minimise the stress of it all before you start packing up your office into cardboard boxes.
Planning early is absolutely essential and everyone will need to know what their own individual responsibilities are well ahead of time so they can prepare and ensure it’s done according to your schedule.
What you don’t want to be doing is rushing around late at night the day before the movers arrive, packing everything up and wondering how you’re going to take the furniture apart.
You’ve also got to think about the new space you’re moving to and, depending on the size of your new office, you may want to have a layout plan in front of you so you can work out months in advance where everything is going to go.
It might be worth starting with the tech department, as this is often one of the most complicated aspects of moving office. You’ll need to disconnect and reconnect your technical equipment – and the sooner you get this done, the sooner people can get back to work and productivity won’t dip too much.
You can also make unpacking a lot easier for yourselves if you label all your boxes properly, so that everyone knows where everything is and there won’t be any frantic searching later down the line.
Moving the smaller items yourself, such as office supplies and plants, can make it easier for the professional movers to do their jobs, so perhaps start the relocation process a bit early if you can.
