Moving offices or locations is a major decision for any business, large or small, and there are a lot of logistics to work through in order to get everything done.
These duties are on top of the responsibilities you already have running your business. That’s why it’s crucial that you don’t try to move offices on your own. You may think that you could fit the organization, planning, and execution into your busy schedule, but you may be risking time with your business, as well as the loss of precious equipment.
The Benefits of Professional Help During an Office Move
Save Time and Money
You may look to move on your own to save the cost of hiring a moving company. While this may sound frugal, dismissing professional help may actually cost you in the long run. Instead of taking valuable time to pack up your office, plan a move, coordinate schedules, and physically move items, you could be spending that time doing your daily work and continuing to grow your business.
Plus, a move would take time away from your employees’ work schedules as well, reducing their capacity to do their jobs effectively.
Ensuring All Items Are Accounted for
All items are accounted for when you have a professional mover on your side. The professional office mover’s project manager will spend up to several days labeling and organizing everything so it easily gets routed to the correct location at the new office. Without this help, you’re either left to do this work yourself or risk missing items that may be crucial for your business.
Professionals also know how to treat a wide variety of items and materials. Is there a conference table covered by a glass top? Or, is there a valuable and fragile piece of art in the office? Finding an experienced office moving company lets you relax in the knowledge that your items are being moved by people who have done this before and have the training to get the job done right.
Moving offices isn’t just about moving desks, computers, and chairs. It also involves moving people. Your employees need to be able to continue doing their jobs without a major interruption. Hiring a professional moving company ensures that the move will happen on schedule and in an efficient matter.
The process will also ease the minds of your employees, as they won’t have to worry about packing up their belongings and moving on their own — they can just focus on their jobs and participate in the process when necessary.
Plus, aside from physically moving to a new space, your staff may be busy setting up new features in your new office, reconnecting phone lines and internet, and changing business documentation. They don’t need any more tasks to worry about that may put aside important business responsibilities.
The IT “Problem”
Whether IT is a foreign concept to you or you specialize in the field, it’s crucial to consider IT logistics when moving offices. Even if your business has nothing to do with IT, you still have phones, computers, and internet to move to your new location. Some of this equipment can set you back a lot of money if damaged, so you need an experienced team to transfer your IT materials to your new office.
A professional moving company specializing in IT relocations will know how to disconnect your technology equipment, pack it in an organized way and keep it protected on the way to your new space. This ensures minimal interruption in your business operations and allows you to start work in your new location seamlessly.
