Is your company growing by leaps and bounds? If so, congratulations! Growing a company is extremely challenging and one of the most frustrating parts of scaling growth is having an office that is big enough for your entire team. If you’re busting at the seams of your existing office, you’re likely looking for new office space and possibly even a professional team of corporate movers to assist you in the process. In this blog, the veteran moving team at Capitol Moving & Storage is going to outline a few things to keep in mind when moving offices.
Tips to Keep in Mind When Moving Offices
- Don’t try to move yourself – If you want to watch the enthusiasm of your employees dwindle, tell them that you’d love for them to help with your corporate move. Let’s be honest, the last thing your employees want to do is help move offices. Go ahead and spend the time and money and invest in a team of professional movers in the area that have been handling corporate moves for decades.
- Label everything – When it comes to boxing up critical documents, electronics and other office equipment, you can quickly amass a mountain of boxes. By properly labeling each box you can ensure that when you arrive at your new office you’ll instantly be able to know what is in each box and where it needs to go.
- Coordinate equipment shutdowns – If you have a large amount of computer equipment that is integral to your company it’s critical to coordinate any downtime. If your existing equipment is old and outdated, moving may be a great time to purchase new equipment. This way you can keep your old equipment up as you’re moving and then have time to setup your new equipment in your new office location. This can limit, or potentially eliminate any downtime during the move.
- Encourage employees to pack their personal belongings – A moving company cannot be held responsible for your employees’ personal items. Encourage each employee to pack up these items and move them privately. This way they will not have to risk having any of their personal belongings damaged during transit.
