A Complete Guide to Office Relocation

Smooth office relocation is dependent on a few key factors. Get them right, and you’ll reduce the stress, increase the efficiency, and stay on budget. Here’s what you need to know.

Plan Ahead

As soon as you confirm your relocation, start making a plan. Six months out is the perfect time to put logistics in place. If you don’t have that much time, start as soon as you can. Begin by determining a move date, setting a budget, getting quotes from moving companies, and creating a plan to get you from point a to point b.

The Checklist

Never try to move an office, even a small one, without a to-do list. Include action items, deadlines, individuals involved, team member responsibilities, and tasks that need doing.

Communicate Internally and Externally

Keep the lines of communication with your employees open. Inform them of the plan and the status every step of the way. Ensure they know and understand their roles and responsibilities throughout the process. And be sure to inform your customers, clients, vendors, partners, and other external parties about your move so they know where to find you and when.

Rely on Your Moving Company

Once you get down to a month or two out, rely on your moving company to help you with the final steps in the relocation process. From packing office supplies and furniture to ensuring electronics, computers, and technology move safely, they’re the experts and can help make your move smooth and hassle-free.
