Moving an Office – The Ins and Outs

We will all face a residential move a few times in our lives. To be precise, the average person will move 11 times in their life time, but that is just moving houses. What about when your office moves? Most people do not think about it, but you should, especially if you are a business owner. You always want to be fully prepared and have the best professionals available to you when you are moving an office. So, let’s talk about some of the things you should expect:

The Easy Stuff
Let’s get this part out of the way first. There are a few things you won’t have to worry about when moving offices. The first one is the labour supply. Everyone knows what a hassle it can be to get people to help you move. You have to promise food, drink, favours… and that still doesn’t often work. Luckily, at the office, you will already have a pool of people who are already being paid to help you. Organize them weeks before the move and have teams who will be responsible for packing, setting up infrastructure, and arranging the new office floor plan. The other thing you don’t have to worry about? Professional movers! At Best Canadian Movers we offer experience and know-how in office relocations.

The Hard Stuff
Now, let’s talk about the harder stuff when it comes to office moving. How much will it cost you? Get an estimate; the best movers will give you a free one. Don’t forget that the move will likely cause a shut down in business. When calculating how long you will need to be closed, it is always better to overestimate than underestimate. It is best to open earlier than expected, rather than later. Finally, packing an office can be a lot more troublesome than a house. Get the professionals to do it! Let Best Canadian Movers pack for you!

Don’t Forget
Here are a few things that you want to remember as well:

  • Have a plan of how you want the new office to look before the furniture arrives,
  • Make a checklist of all the items being moved; task someone with being in charge of the checklist,
  • There will be some unforeseen start-up costs when you relocate; budget for them, and
  • Take the move as an opportunity to downsize some of the items you may have accumulated at the old office
