Before starting any corporate move you should take proper stock of everything that you might need to do beforehand. With a proper checklist for your corporate move, you can be prepared for any eventuality as a business owner. Here are some of the top actionable items that should be placed on the top of a checklist before your corporate move:
Examining the new space: making sure that the new office space will work in measuring out the square footage in each room will help you to make sure that well you are unloading during the moving process, you will know exactly where everything needs to be placed. By measuring the space ahead of time you could potentially handle construction projects that need to be done before your business assets are moved in.
Building an inventory list: make sure that nothing is left at your old location and build an inventory list of all of your business assets including IT assets, business equipment and more. Working to build up this list will ensure that nothing will be left behind and that you can be prepared to brief the movers when you need a quote for your move.
Declutter: getting rid of old items that you don’t plan on moving will help to make sure they are out of the way on your moving day. Consider some of the furniture items or business assets that simply should not make the move to your new location and get rid of them rather than paying an extra fee to move them again.
Prepare accordingly for communication/moving: be sure to switch over all of your bills marked the move date with all of your customers and prepare with your staff for any of the new building rules, parking procedures, layouts and more. Giving people lots of time to prepare for change or acclimatize to a change is crucial with any business move.
Keep some of these top actions in mind when you are attempting to do prepare for a corporate move.
