Brief your team of moving guidelines. It’s important that you ensure everyone on your team is aware of your moving plan and their responsibilities. Clearly communicate what needs to be packed, what the moving company will pack, moving deadlines, any special instructions for specific furniture and equipment, and personal and departmental responsibilities.
Familiarize yourself with your new space. Make sure you are knowledgeable about the layout of your new office space. Visit your new office to take measurements so you are 100% confident it will accommodate your furniture and equipment. Determine if you need to reconfigure your furniture or order entirely new systems furniture and equipment. Create a floorplan of your new office and send it to all of your team members so they are aware of the plan as well.
One way to ensure a more seamless transition to your new office space is to get organized before the move. A central part of that process is having every team member sort through personal belongings and company materials to identify items that can be discarded before the move. The more unnecessary items you get rid of now, the less you need to pack and pay to move. Here are a few tips to help make the purging progress a success:
By hiring a professional office moving company, you benefit from knowing professionals will be packing up all of your furniture systems and common areas, including conference rooms, break rooms, and storage closets. Employees are generally responsible for packing everything else, including their personal items.
However, if you plan to execute some of the packing on your own, take advantage of tips shared by All Jersey Moving & Storage’s seasoned team of office movers:
If you’re executing an office move during the winter months, be realistic about the possibility of weather-caused moving delays. Snow and ice storms often cause poor, dangerous driving conditions and heavy traffic that can delay your moving schedule.
It’s important to ensure you are working with a professional office moving company like All Jersey Moving & Storage that factors in potential weather-related issues when developing its moving schedule. All Jersey Moving & Storage draws on our experience and intimate knowledge of the roads, buildings and areas we service, which gives us an edge when it comes to navigating road closures and congestion. Still, because winter weather and driving conditions, it’s always wise to have a backup plan in the event your move is delayed or pushed off.
On a positive note, moving during the winter rather than in peak season means you will likely have an easier time securing your moving date. Despite moving companies having greater availability, it is still important to schedule your move as soon as possible. Especially when you are moving around the holidays, you don’t want to end up in a scenario where you have to move on an undesirable moving date or – even worse – with an undesirable moving company! Avoid having to move immediately before or after the holidays by booking your preferred moving company well in advance.
At All Jersey Moving & Storage we always recommend scheduling your preferred moving dates as early as you can, but we also do our very best to accommodate last minute and weekend moving requests.
