Office moving in the city can certainly feel overwhelming and hectic, but by keeping a few simple tips in mind, you’ll find that your office relocation project will go surprisingly efficiently. Here are just a few tips to keep in mind as you prepare for your office move.

  • Form a supervisory team of employees to assist with your office moving project delegation and implementation. This is a great way to enlist your employees in the moving process to help keep things organized and on-time. It’s generally a good idea to enlist longtime employees and employees from various departments, as this will help to ensure a well-rounded and experienced team to help with the move.
  • Finalize your new office floorplans several weeks in advance of your office relocation as to avoid any last-minute complications or problems. Look at crafting a new floorplan as an opportunity to maximize your new office space and make it more organized and efficient than your current space.
  • Craft a communications plan internally for your employees before you move. This could include packets with instructions and details or weekly email updates about how the move is progressing. In addition to this, it’s a good idea to designate a specific individual, such as your HR professional, as the person who will handle all moving-related questions from employees. This way, your company can keep your employees in the loop easily and address any questions as soon as they arise.
  • Take an inventory before you move, especially for high-value items. Doing this can help make note of any preexisting damage to them and can easily be communicated to your insurance company and office movers should any issues arise during or after the office move.
