How to Prepare for an Office Move
In order to ensure as little office down-time as possible, start preparing your office team in advance. On the day of the move all personal items and office materials should have been packed away, all computers should be disconnected and properly labeled. Any critical files or documents should be packed and stored separately and moved by you, your IT team or one of your trusted employees to lower any risk of unforeseen problems.
Creating an advanced layout for your new office will allow the office movers to proceed quickly with delivery and setup of your new location. Make sure you clearly label all boxes and computers, as well as have a plan in mind for where they will be placed on delivery day. To ensure that your office is well taken care of during the move make sure you ask for references and read through any customer feedback on the company before making your decision.
In case of any unforeseen problems, make sure that you have talked to your insurance company about what is covered, as well as talking to the office transport company about their insurance coverage. This is particularly important if you are moving expensive electronics or machinery that are essential to your business.
