A commercial move can be a far more daunting task than a residential move, but not impossible to pull of successfully. The commercial moving process can be complex with many different parts to consider. There is a need for careful planning to prevent unwanted mishaps along the way. After all, you are moving to a new business location, and any significant problem that arises could prevent a smooth transition. Check out these useful tips to help you plan how to carry out your next commercial move.
Choose the Ideal Moving Company
A professional moving company is the best option to help with your commercial moving. If your coworkers have added professional support, this will reduce some of the work they have to cover. You want to do your research on a few moving companies and make your selection based on the one with a solid reputation that meets your specific needs. You need a moving team that is fully licensed and insured and is experienced in commercial moving.
Establish a Strong Moving Team
You don’t want to make this commercial move by yourself so enlist the help of your staff. Create a moving team with a designated project manager to supervise the relocation that you need help with. A priority should be informing employees about the relocation of the business, date included and instructing them to pack up their workspaces, emphasizing the need to maintain organized files. There should be a person who is the primary contact onsite at the old and new locations to meet with the movers and packers.
Seriously Consider Offsite Storage
The packing process could prove overwhelming, especially if your business is large. You may have a lot to move, and at the end of the day, you will have a lot of boxes that you may not have the space to accommodate. The last thing you need in new is clutter that can make the packing process even more difficult. Consider temporary storage with a storage company, or if the moving company you hired offers storage services, arrange storage with them. The fewer boxes you have to tackle, the easier the moving process will be.
Design the New Office Layout
What will the new business location office space look like. It’s helpful to have a space planning service team come into the new location before the unpacking begins. This technical, professional team can help design and organize the new office layout that will provide efficiency, enhance productivity, and create an attractive work environment.
