Tips for Office Moving Day
Office Moving Day
If there's anything you should know about your office moving day, it is that the more planning you do in advance of the move day, the smoother you can expect the process to go!
Follow these 5 practical tips to help your office moving day goes smoothly and ensure your business is fully operational as quickly as possible in the new office:
Get crates ordered well in advance of the move and ask staff to pack their personal desk items and take any valuables home with them. By the time the Office Moving Company arrive, staff desks should be totally clear.
2. IT Equipment
All IT equipment should be fully shut down on the last working day. Power leads, jacks and other IT peripherals should be individually labelled and packed into the same box as the equipment they belong to.
Try to throw away as much garbage as possible and have a good clear out before your moving company arrive. The more you throw away, the less you will have to pack. If you have excess garbage to throw away, ask your Office Moving Company to make arrangements to dispose of it for you.
4. Building Access
Take a tour of both buildings with your Office Moving Company in advance of the move to review any access issues. This will include parking, elevator access and narrow doorways that may prevent your move day from going smoothly.
5. Internet Connection and Phone Lines
Ensure that your Internet connection is ready to go and that the phones lines have been properly tested in the new office. Remember that the sooner you get back to work, the sooner you can continue working.
