Commercial moves are complex because often they include more people and business assets and require more time. At Rockstar Pro Movers, we have done dozens of office moves, and we put together a short article that will help you to prepare for your upcoming office move:
Determine the Time Frame
How large is your business, and how much time do you have? This helps you to realize how big your move will be. The more time you have, the easier it is to prepare for an office move. If you have a small business, it won’t require as much time for planning.
However, if your office spans several floors, and dozens of people work for your company, then your move will be quite large. Therefore, you need to allocate more time to prepare for your office move. Remember not to get carried away with planning your move and forget about your business duties.
Create a Floor Plan
Figure out where everyone and everything will go. This will help to direct the traffic: you will know which boxes and furniture will go to which rooms. On a moving day, you should pass a copy of the floor plan to your movers.
Plan the Announcements
First, you need to communicate with your employees in advance that you will be moving on a certain date. The reminders should also be sent out one business day before your move.
Second, update your address online: Google My Business, Yelp, social media, email signatures, website, etc. Also, don’t forget about your print pieces: business cards, flyers, postcards, etc. While we are on the topic of updating the address, you should file a change of address with USPS to forward your mail to your new location.
Third, talk with your vendors: internet, phone, business suppliers, etc. You need to decide whether you will keep them or find other vendors near your new location. This article on business relocation announcement will be helpful.
Hire Professional Office Movers
Hiring full-service professional office movers will make your office much easier. Full-service means that they provide all the moving-related services including packing and wrapping, furniture disassembly and reassembly, custom crating, etc. When one company handles all your moving needs, it will be less stressful and less expensive for you.
At Rockstar Pro Movers, we will guide you throughout your office move including the preparation, planning, moving, setup, etc. Our commercial moving experts know how to prepare and execute office moves. We also created an office moving checklist to help you to prepare for your upcoming office move.
If your office is large and you have a lot to move, we have enough ready-to-go trucks and expert movers and packers to accommodate your needs. If you are moving to a small office, we won’t neglect your needs in moving labor.
