Don’t Miss These New York City Office Moving Tips

Have an upcoming office move in New York City? While office moving can seem complex and hectic, simply being prepared and prioritizing organization can make your office move seamless and efficient. To that end, here are some tips for optimizing efficiency and organization during your New York City office moving project.

Designate a move leader or coordinator: A specific point of contact to manage the commercial relocation and direct all moving-related questions to can help to minimize confusion among employees and ensure that the project goes smoothly and all questions are answered quickly and efficiently. This individual completes tasks such as establishing a move schedule and assigns moving-related tasks to staff, and acts a liaison between staff and contractors.

Create an office moving calendar and checklist: You might need nearly a year to organize your move, depending on how complex your business needs are, so start planning accordingly. To stay as organized and “on time” as possible, create a commercial moving calendar and checklist as soon as you decide to move. Creating a calendar helps to prioritize what needs to be accomplished by certain dates while a checklist can also help keep your move organized and on-track.

Create an office moving budget: Always be sure to create a proper commercial moving budget. Be sure to include items such as labor, your office movers’ cost, insurance and the like. Creating a detailed moving budget will help you better ascertain the impact of your move on your company’s bottom line at the end of the year and plan accordingly
