Work Office

Welcome to this week’s edition of Tuesday Tips!

This week, we’ll take a quick look on how to make your office relocation in New York City more organized and efficient. 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 just a few tips for optimizing efficiency and organization during your New York City office moving project!

  • Move outside of regular business hours. Moving during regular business hours can be disruptive and slow down your company’s efficiency. Instead, move on nights and weekends to minimize business disruptions and ensure your move is more organized.
  • De-clutter and purge your office before moving. For a more organized and efficient office relocation, conduct an office purge several days before you start packing. This will help make your move much more efficient and also help save your company time and money!
  • Create an office moving calendar and checklist. To stay as organized 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 as well. 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.
  • Delegate key tasks for efficiency and lightening everyone’s workload. In addition, be sure to delegate key tasks to specific personnel and departments at your company. Doing so is a great way to lighten the pre-moving workload as well as prevent a few people from being overwhelmed by having to manage too many tasks related to the move.
  • Designate a point of contact for moving questions. Finally, designating a specific point of contact to direct all moving-related questions to, such as an HR manager, can help to minimize confusion among employees and ensure that all questions are answered quickly and efficiently.
