Assemble a Team
If your office consists of you and a few other people, this step may not be necessary. However, attempting to move more than a handful of people can be a challenge. We suggest reaching out and asking for help from officemates. Chose your team and then begin by delegating tasks. The “moving team” can be given different tasks such as securing supplies and communicating with others in their space. You will want to schedule meetings throughout the moving process with your team to keep everyone up to date on what is going on.
As soon as possible, get your hands-on blueprints for the new office space. Familiarize yourself and others with the new layout and take suggestions on what can be improved. It may be that co-workers will have suggestions on how to lay out the new space to make it even better. Who knows? Spruce.com says that a small to medium sized office needs at least 3 months of prep before a move. For larger offices, 8 months is ideal. In each scenario, the more time you and your staff have to create an action plan, the better.
Create a Timeline
Once you know the moving date, get busy planning a flexible schedule. You will need to contact a moving company if you plan on using one. Remember that mid-week moves are easier during peak moving months. You will want to decide how to most effectively move your office. Should the officemates pack up their work belongings themselves or would a professional company like A Mother’s Touch Movers be a better choice?
During this phase, be sure to collect all contact information for everyone your office does business with. Keep the list handy and make sure working partners know that a move is coming in the near future.
Moving an office does not have to be a stressful time. With a little planning and a lot of patience, you can make it through. A Mother’s Touch Movers is here with any questions you may have. Contact us today and let us help you get a head start on your Melbourne, FL move!
