5 Organizing Tips for Your Office Move That Are Not a Waste of Time

OMX blog cover

Did you know that around 9 in 10 businesses move into a new office at least once every decade?

Whether it’s to save money or find a better location with more foot traffic, there are tons of reasons why moving can benefit a business. Even though there’s a lot to gain, that doesn’t mean that planning an office move isn’t stressful.

Are you moving offices soon? Keep reading for 5 expert tips that can help you stay calm and organized.

1. Hire a Moving Company

Moving an office is no easy feat, which is why hiring a moving company can help you save lots of time and other valuable resources. Another bonus is that experienced movers can help you pack everything in a safe, organized manner. If this is your first office move, strategizing with your movers can make the process much smoother.

2. Think About Square Footage

Are you moving into a new office that’s a different size or layout? If so, you’ll want to spend some time studying the blueprints so you can make the most out of your space. Downsizing is a tricky task in particular, so you’ll have to think about which supplies are essential and which supplies you can do without.

Sometimes seeing the space in person can give you a better idea of how you want your office to look. If a visit is feasible, be sure to take your phone along to record a walking tour. Having this footage can help you remember every detail throughout the entire planning process.

3. Work Closely with Your Employees

As soon as you know that you’re going to move, you need to speak with your employees so they can start preparing, too. Moving can create a lot of concerns, so it’s important to be open about the move and send out regular updates to avoid unnecessary stress.

4. Build a Team and Make a Realistic Moving Timeline

Since there are a lot of different chores that need to get done, it’s nice to get your employees involved with the move. If you develop a special moving team, they can help you develop a realistic moving timeline and outline everything that needs to be completed to make this transition as seamless as possible.

5. Inform Your Clients About the Office Move

One downside of office relocation is that you have the potential to lose customers. This is why it’s crucial to create a list of all of your clients’ contact information so you can keep track of who you’ve informed and who needs to be informed. Updating your business website, social media, and any other platforms can also help everyone stay in touch.

With these 5 tips for moving offices, you can make sure your business thrives at its new location.
