Office Moving Tips For Your Office Move:
Give Each Employee 2 Office Moving Boxes To Pack All Their Personal Items In.
Professional movers are not responsible for personal items that are lost or damaged during an move.
Therefore, it is recommended to have your employees pack and transport any personal items that they have in their offices in advance of your move. They can transport these items in their own car and take them home until your everything is completed.
-It is recommended to give them 1 small moving box and 1 medium moving box. This should provide them with enough storage to clear out their personal items.
Some companies like their employees to pack their own files in file boxes. Ask your mover what is recommended for files.
Make Your Office Move As Stress Free As Possible With Effective Employee Communication
The single best way to relieve stress from an office move is to have excellent communication with all the employees. Often companies make it much more difficult than it needs to be.
Do not send out a big office moving booklet, as it is difficult for people to read. Instead, the shorter the better. All information should be on one piece of paper to ensure that it is read. Bullets and numbers are great to use.
Steps To Create an Office Moving 1 Page Guide:
1. Put a brightly colored piece of paper on each person's day 1 month before the move letting them know the 10 things they will need to finish by a certain date. (A bright piece of paper will stand out over all of the white pieces of paper)
2. Put a second brightly colored piece of paper on each person's desk 1 week before the office move with any tasks that are yet to be completed.
-Make the tasks simple and clear so there is no room for misunderstanding.
Questions To Ask Your Office Mover in Advance:
Not all office moving companies work the same way. It is best to understand how your office moving provider prefers to operate and then organize the move accordingly.
Questions To Ask Your Office Mover:
1. If you are packing yourself, what is the best way that boxes should be labeled? With stickers or just a black pen. Should the label be on one side and/or top of each box?
(Many businesses prefer that the mover do all of the packing for their office move)
2. How do they prefer to label the boxes so they know where to place them in your new office?
