3 Things To Do When Moving OfficesOn March 26, 2021 by Brent Bates
There are many reasons an office may need to move to a new space. They could be expanding and need more room. Perhaps the rent changed at their current location and their budget couldn’t cover it. Finally, they may be deciding to switch to a hotelling model and don’t need as much space since employees will mainly be working from home. No matter the reason, moving an office takes a lot of work and planning. If your business is preparing to move, make sure to do these three things.
1. Hire a Moving Company
Not all moving companies are equal. While some companies are excellent at moving households, moving a business is an entirely different proposition. Research several companies that offer commercial moving services Austin TX. Determine what your moving budget is and work within that. You can ask your employees to pack up their desks themselves to save time and money.
2. Create a New Layout Before You Move In
The last thing you want to do when you arrive in your new space is to show up with no idea where everything needs to go. Make a floorplan of the new space and install any new furniture so everyone knows where things need to go. There are professional office designers you can work with if you feel at a loss for what to do.
3. Clean Out Before Packing Up
When you move house, you should go through your belongings and get rid of the stuff you don’t need or use anymore. You should do the same for an office move. Don’t move things you don’t need anymore. This just costs money and then you have to put that stuff somewhere when you get to your new space.
Moving to a new office space is exciting but if you don’t prepare properly, it can quickly become overwhelming. Follow our tips for a smoother moving process.
