1. Schedule move:
The best time to move offices is typical during the offseason when business is slower. This way, you can minimize the amount of disruption to your work. You will also need to schedule a moving truck and crew, and book a time for them to come in and move your belongings.
2. Notify employees and customers:
Your employees and customers should be notified of the office move as soon as possible. This will give them time to adjust their schedules and make any necessary arrangements. You may want to include information about the move in your next company newsletter or email blast.
3. Organize files:
Before you start packing up your office supplies, you will want to organize your files. This will make it easier to find what you need once you are in the new office. Label each box with a description of its contents, and make sure that all of your important documents are packed up safely.
4. Pack up office supplies:
Once your files are organized, you can start packing up your office supplies. Make sure to pack up everything that you will need in the new office, including desk lamps, staplers, and paper clips. You may also want to pack up any personal items that you have in your office space.
5. Dispose of old furniture:
Before you leave your old office, you will need to dispose of any old furniture. You may want to contact a local charity or recycling center to see if they can take it off your hands. Make sure to remove all of the screws and bolts from the furniture before disposing of it, so that it cannot be used again.
6. Transport equipment and furniture:
Once everything is packed up, it is time to transport it to the new office. Make sure that you have enough people to help carry the boxes and furniture, and that you have enough room in the moving truck for everything. You will also want to keep an inventory list of everything that is being transported so that you can make sure nothing gets left behind.
7. Set up new office:
Once everything has arrived at the new office, it is time to set it up! This may involve unpacking boxes, assembling desks, and plugging in computers. Take your time setting up the new office - it should be just like home sweet home!
