Moving your business to a new office will require you to shut down operations, however, establishing a concrete plan could save you a lot of money and stress. Additionally, it could make the transition easier for you and your employees. Here are 7 tips that we have for your office move.

Donate Unused Office Equipment

Moving your office’s items could be very extremely expensive, you certainly do not want to pay high bills to your removalist for items that you are not going to end up using. If you are planning to have an office relocation, then it is the best time to donate your old phones, PC’s, office furniture and printers. Another reason to donate your unused items is tax breaks, donating your unused items to charity could get your office tax breaks.

Do not leave it until the last minute

To help avoid any last-minute stress or confusion, you should begin packing early and regularly. If you have a large inventory, then give yourself a few weeks to begin packing your office items. Depending on the size of your inventory, you may want to hire a removal company to save you the trouble of packing. If you decided to hire a professional office removalist, then you should call them two months in advance to create an effective plan for your moves.

Categorize your items

One easy way to make your office relocation easier for everyone is to categorize your items. Start organizing your office documents in one area, another area for your computer cables and a different area for your furniture or other items. By categorizing and organizing your items, it would help you to pack things in a more efficient manner. Additionally, by doing this, you could identify which office supplies are damaged or unused, thus helping you to know which items need to be replaced and which items need to be donated.

Label your box

Labeling your boxes will tremendously help to keep your inventory organized, also, it helps to separate boxes that contain fragile or important boxes, which require extra care. The removalist service that you have hired would not know which boxes are fragile unless you label it. To save your time, you may consider using stickers instead, to label all your fragile boxes. Your office removalist usually could provide you with these stickers. Also, you may consider using their packing and unpacking services to save time and money. So it is best to communicate with your removalist.
