5 ways to make your Office Removals easier
We all know how stressful and time-consuming an office relocation can be, our aim is to make your life easier and hassle-free during the moving process. One sure fire way to ease the stress of an office move is to hire in support from a reputable Office Removals Company. They will work with you throughout the process to make sure that your transition to the new premises is smooth and without disruption.
Here are 5 things to do in order to prepare your business for move day:
1. Dedicated Project Manager
Assign a dedicated project manager within your organisation who is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the move and can discuss your moving requirements in detail with your removals company. The Moving Office Checklist will be a useful document for them to help plan all the key stages of the move so that everything dovetails appropriately.
2. Have a Packing Schedule
If you have a lot of files to pack up, you may need to consider a staged packing schedule where some files are packed a week prior to the move so that your moving timetable can be adhered to.
3. Involve Staff
Keep staff up-to-date with what's happening in the run up to the move, in particular, the move day itself. Staff may be required to pack up their own crates with their desk items. Be sure to order crates early so that they arrive a couple of days before the move.
4. Communicate the new Seating Plan
Make sure your new seating plan is confirmed prior to the move and communicate this to your office removals company. This will considerably help with the unpacking process and help all boxes to be unpacked in their correct location; saving time and minimising any disruption.
5. Plan your IT Relocation
IT equipment and phones should be handled separately from your office furniture. Larger companies may wish to use an IT Relocation Company to handle this crucial aspect of the move - in which case - make sure all parties communicate so that the move runs smoothly. In any event, your computers will need to be de-commissioned and recommissioned properly and you need an IT relocation plan to avoid any disruption at the new premises.
