require significant planning to run smoothly and successfully. Ask any business owner or manager who has been through the process—it’s not something you can just throw together quickly or on the fly.
However, when you delegate tasks well and have a timeline for the relocation in place, you can get through the process with your sanity—and all of your employees and office furniture—still intact.
Not sure where to begin with a timeline for your office move? This quick timeline checklist should get you started:
8-10 weeks prior to move or earlier: finalize your office’s new lease agreement; this step involves tasks including:
- Finding new office space
- Identifying and negotiating the requirements and legal obligations of your new lease
8-10 weeks before the move: research professional moving companies and hire the best one for the job; assess qualifications, customers reviews and ask for quotes; it’s also a good idea to make sure they have experience in office relocations.
4-8 weeks before move: furnish the new office space and plan out the design and any necessary build-out; this timeframe can vary significantly depending on the office size
2-12 weeks before move: planning and enacting the relocation; this phase involves:
- Delegating tasks for packing up offices and moving
- Physically beginning the moving process—or allowing the moving company you hired to get started
