Are you moving your office to a different location? Upgrading to a bigger and better office is exciting, and is often a sign your business is doing well. But with moving comes a myriad of expenses and stress.
When you’re in a negative mood, this can impact the movers who are helping you through the moving process.
This may not be the biggest concern on your mind, but the movers are the professionals. They’re the ones who know how to achieve the easiest move possible.
Don’t let deadlines and time constraints stress you out. Here are 4 moving tips that will benefit you and a commercial moving company.
1. Schedule in Advance
To properly prepare yourself for your move, schedule your mover well in advance.
Give yourself at least several months lead time when contacting movers to schedule your relocation. The size of your company, distance of the move as well as availability will all be factors when determining your moving date.
2. Donate Old or Unused Office Equipment
Do you have office equipment, supplies, or even furniture you don’t want or need? Do good for someone in need while making the process smoother for the commercial moving company. Donate the unwanted equipment to charity.
This is especially true for outdated electronics. Do you plan on upgrading your printer, copy machine, phone, and even your computers? If they work well, resell them or send them to a charity.
3. Start Packing Early
When the moving company arrives, they want everything packed and ready to go. So the last minute moving deadline doesn’t interfere with your work, start packing early. Don’t stress about packing the whole office, pack a little at a time.
Worry about the little items first, such as the small items around your desk. As those are packed, focus on the larger objects such as furniture.
4. Always Label Your Boxes
Chances are, you’re upgrading to an office with different rooms. You’re going to need to direct your movers. If they see an unmarked box, they will place the box in a random place.
To increase production, label your boxes by the room they need to go.
When the boxes are in their designated rooms, this makes unpacking easier.
You also won’t endure the hassle of finding lost objects or materials. If the movers don’t know what’s in the box, they can’t be blamed for placing the boxes in the wrong room.
