If you are preparing to plan an office move project, it can be challenging to know where to start. Planning is everything. Like any big project, listing out the steps of your plan can help you feel more in control of the process and decrease feelings of overwhelm and even panic.
Are thoughts of your office move keeping your up at night? This checklist will help you organize by prioritizing what needs to happen first, next, and later. Don’t forget to delegate tasks to others or even turn to a professional moving company to handle the details. You don’t have to do it all yourself!
Planning an Office Move Checklist
6-12 Months Before the Move
Now is the time to determine how you want to manage the tasks of your move. Do you prefer a physical calendar, post-it notes, a digital calendar, or an app? Whatever it is, figure it out and use it consistently. This will be how you keep yourself organized (and sane) throughout the moving process.
Create a filing system to keep crucial documents you may need during the office move. These include insurance papers, contracts, agreements, and address change documents. Keeping everything in one place will save time and ensure you have what you need at your fingertips.
Inform Customers and the Public of Your Move
Use newsletters, social media, business website, postcards, and word of mouth to spread the word about your upcoming office move. The sooner you start sharing the information with others, the better informed your customers will be.
Meet with Managers and Employees
Establishing the move-related procedures and workflow strategies for your employees will ensure your business can continue operating optimally—even in the middle of a move. Take the time now to implement strategies so your business doesn’t skip a beat.
3-6 Months Before the Move
Hire a Reputable Moving Company
Six months out from your move should be enough time to schedule a moving company. However, if you plan to move during the mover’s busy season (late spring/early summer), it might be best to start the selection process even earlier. Ask other local business owners for recommendations, check out online reviews, and research the companies in your area to find the best one for the job.
Do you have items in your office you no longer use or need? Now is the time to donate and recycle. The less you have to move into your new office space, the better!
