There’s just something exciting about walking into a brand-new office on your first day open. The smell of freshly brewed coffee wafts enticingly from the break room. Every surface is sparkling clean. You can hear the low hum of the copy machine as it prints out that first job. The people are the same, the equipment is the same — but it still feels like a fresh start.
So, how do you ensure everything goes according to plan? Overall, the best way to make your office move seamless is to be prepared. That’s why Ameritex Houston has a foolproof list of suggestions on the best office move preparation tactics.
Office Move Preparation Tips
Prepare your staff.
As soon as you have your plan set, let your employees know what’s happening. Explain details of the move and their responsibilities. Communicate with them often through intranet, memos, emails, or meetings.
Prepare the office buildings — both old and new.
It’s critical to coordinate your move with property managers from both sites. You’ll need to nail down exact dates and reserve any elevators.
At the old office space, pack up, and take advantage of this opportunity to weed through unnecessary items. Once your moveout is complete, do a walkthrough to make sure you don’t lose your deposit. Consider hiring a cleaning crew in advance.
At the new office space, ask the property manager to schedule a walkthrough of the new space as well. Carefully inspect each room to make sure everything is up to your standards.
Although every office relocation is unique, following the steps of preparation will help you as a business owner. For more information on office moves, check out the following helpful resources:
