5 tips for a Successful Office Move

No one ever said that moving was easy, but with the right planning and preparation it can be a lot less stressful. When it comes to moving your office, there are a few extra considerations to take into account to make sure the process goes smoothly. Here are our top 5 tips for getting your business ready for an office move:

Make a List of What Needs to Be Done

Before you can start packing, you need to make a list of everything that needs to be done. This includes tasks like notifying your utility providers, transferring your phone service, and notifying your insurance company as well as your clients or customers. By making a list, you can be sure that nothing gets forgotten in the chaotic days leading up to the move.

Notify Your Utilities and Phone Company

Your office move won’t go very smoothly if you forget to transfer your utilities and phone service. Make sure to notify your electricity, gas, water, and trash providers as well as your internet and phone service providers of your upcoming move. That way, they can make the necessary arrangements to have service transferred to your new location saving your business any downtime.

Notify Your Insurance Company

Your business insurance policy should cover your office contents in case of damage or theft during the move. However, it’s always a good idea to contact your insurance company to let them know about the move and see if there are any special requirements or procedures that need to be followed.

Backup Your Data

One of the most important things you can do to prepare for your office move is to backup all of your data. This includes your financial records, customer databases, and any other important files. That way, if something does happen to your computer during the move, you won’t have to start from scratch.

Hire a Professional Moving Company

While you could try to move everything yourself, it’s usually much easier (and less stressful) to hire a professional moving company – such as Lee Atkins Removals. We have the experience and expertise to get your office moved quickly and efficiently with minimal disruption to your business.

Pack an Office Survival Kit

On your first day in the new office, there are bound to be a few hiccups. To make sure that you’re prepared for anything, pack an office survival kit with essentials like toilet paper, paper towels, coffee, snacks, and first aid supplies. That way, you can be sure that your employees will be able to get through the first day (and beyond) without any major problems.
