Advantage Moving and Storage, an Office Relocation Company, offers 5 items to do one week before an office move

Having a checklist when moving offices is a necessity. By completing all these tasks, you can ensure your office move goes as smoothly as possible. Advantage Moving and Storage is here with this list of 5 important things to do before an office relocation.

1. Assign moving tasks

One week before the move, round up your employees and assign them each moving tasks. One team could handle packing up sensitive documents, while another can focus on breaking down furniture that can be moved. Assigning everyone a specific task will make the move go smoothly.

2. Talk to your employees about the move

Make sure to schedule times to talk to your employees one-on-one about the move. Ask if they have any questions, concerns, or recommendations to streamline the process. Talking to your employees will make them feel better about the move and they will appreciate having their voice heard.

3. Gather all documents

Make sure you double and triple check all sensitive documents. This includes tax info, billing info, payroll info, and any client documents. If you have the time, you can try to digitize the majority of these documents so they are easier to transport.

4. Research a moving company

While you and your employees could potentially handle an office relocation yourselves, the best option is to find a professional office relocation company. Professional moving companies have years of training and experience that will make the process go as smoothly as possible.

5. Talk to IT

One hard problem with moving offices in the modern day is reconnecting your networks and digital tech in the new space. Talk to your IT department and have them draft a plan to transfer the office’s technical equipment like computers, servers, phones, etc. Your business cannot function without the proper network infrastructure so its important to have it set up as quickly as possible.
