If your business is looking ahead to moving your office, you’ve probably already realized how complicated things can get, and how stressful the process can be. By making a phased move plan and using commercial moving services, Vancouver area businesses like yours are cutting their downtime to the bare bones, and having a smooth, less stressful experience.
Start By Figuring Out What Really Needs To Be Moved
The first response that pops into your mind may be, “Everything, of course!” Take a little time to re-evaluate, though. Are you changing décor in your new office? How much of your current furniture will fit into that design? How old are your printers, microwaves, and coffee maker? If any of them are older, you may be looking at replacing them soon anyway, so consider whether it might make more sense to get rid of the old ones before the move, and having replacements delivered to the new office. Do you have leased office equipment like copiers? Look into the possibility of having them picked up and newer ones delivered directly to your new location. Get your employees on board as soon as possible, so they can begin paring down their workspaces and be ready to move lean.
Learn About Logistics
Many commercial leases include restrictions and requirements for move-ins and move-outs. Be sure you know when you are allowed to move (often after normal business hours), and how to ensure access to things like freight elevators, HVAC, loading space for the truck, and any requirements for floors coverings and additional insurance. You’ll also need to identify things in your office that may require special handling or packing supplies, so you can make sure you have everything you need on hand when packing day comes.
