A Guide for Moving into a New Office

Article Image

Moving office can be a very big job and can at times, feel very overwhelming. Depending on the size of the office, there can be a lot of things that you will need to do in order to make sure that the move is successful. Something to consider, is that your goal isn't simply to move, it is to move as quickly and efficiently as possible. This is both in terms of time and cost. In order to help you to achieve this, this article goes over various things that you will want to think about when you are moving office.


One of the most important things when moving office is to make sure that you keep everything organised. Once you are in your new office, you will want every employee and every room to have everything that belongs. Whether you do it before or after the move, you are going to have to do some organisation. The key thing to realise is that it is going to be magnitudes faster to do it before your move. When you are taking something out of a room, you will simply need to put it in the same box or other container that everything else from that room is in. If you were to do it after your move, you would have to be running around all over the office to put things in their place whenever you open a box. Alternatively, if you were going room by room, you would have to open all of the boxes at once and sort through them. This is even less viable. Another key thing to not forget about proper organisation, is that you will want to make sure to properly label every container to further streamline the moving in process.

Get help from your employees

It goes without saying that the more people that you have working on the move, the faster it will go. Luckily for you, you have a full workforce all ready to go that is already being paid. Getting your employees to help with certain parts of the move can make the move easier and faster. The easiest way to do this is to get everyone to pack their own offices up. This means that all that will be left will be communal spaces such as meeting rooms. If you want to go further, you could also request the help of your employees to move some of the communal spaces.

Removal Company

Hiring a removal company to move all of your office belongings and furniture is an indispensable part of the moving process. There are several reasons for this. Firstly, not only will the company be taking everything out of the office, they will also be transporting it and then moving it into the new office. Secondly, carrying a large amount of furniture and boxes can be both time consuming and tiring, especially if you have a large office. In the worst case you may end up injuring yourself from strain or improper technique. By having professionals with the physique and skills that are suited to the task, you will be able to spend your time sorting other, more pressing parts of the move. The last reason is that it is very unrealistic to transport a large amount of furniture and boxes by yourself. Not only will you have to hire a trailer, van or other vehicle that can fit these things in, you will most likely also have to make multiple trips due to the space limitations of these options. This will not only take a lot of time, it will end up being expensive due to fuel and rental costs.
