We all know how expensive, challenging and frustrating an office move can be regardless of why you are making the move. Whether you are moving your office because of downsizing or an expansion, the important element is to minimize the amount of downtime that occurs during your move. You don’t want operations to slow down and your business to suffer because of an office move, and neither do we!
There are a number of tasks you can perform in your efforts to prepare for your office move.
First, knowing you can trust our friendly but professional teams with all your moving needs. We always advise our clients to take a full assessment of what you actually have to move and what you can simply let go of. The less you have to move, the less your moving costs will be. With that said, we encourage you to start by inventorying your electronic items such as old computers, phones, printers and copiers. Those you no longer use, you can sell or recycle.
Secondly, take a close look at all your office furniture and decor. Whatever you determine is no longer of value or of use to your new office, you can donate to a local charity. Again, you want to minimize the amount of items you actually need to transport in the move. Further, throw out any items that you are unable to donate or recycle rather than move them with you.
Thirdly, we advise you to pack as much as you possibly can early on, or hire our team to do all the packing for you. Packing time is something that every person seems to miscalculate. Don’t wait until the last minute because you will find yourself faced with a near to impossible challenge. Packing in advance will save you both time and money and will allow you all the time you need to weed through all those belongings and determine what it is you want and need to take over to the new office with you.
The experts here at The Green Truck Moving and Storage Company have found that planning your office move months in advance is not only practical and easier, but reduces costs and overall stress as well. We suggest you make a list in advance of your move and check off tasks completed as you go.
Your office move should be a rather organized experience if you prepare lists in advance of procedures and steps to accomplish month by month.
Determine what needs to be done three months, two months, one month, two weeks, one week and the day of the move. Create your task lists and check them off as accomplished. This will alleviate any missing components and omit any scurrying or scrambling around last minute.
When things are put off until the last minute, not just with an office move, but with anything in life, it can cost you a whole lot of time and money that you probably did not budget for. Making lists, checking them off, and staying organized will definitely save you a good deal of time, money and frustration.
