Moving your business from one office to another can be stressful. Not only do you have to worry about yourself, but you also have to worry about your equipment and even your staff. Before starting the move, it is crucial to plan everything out so not only can the process go as smooth as possible, but also so you lose the least amount of time possible. Let’s take a look at some tips when it comes to planning out office moving in Gainesville.
Make Sure Your Team Is On the Same Page
What can make an office move so complicated is all the extra moving parts, including your staff and departments. It’s important that communication remains open and that everyone stays on the same page to avoid confusion. Appoint someone from each department (ideally the department heads) to be the voice of their department. Keep everyone in the loop about what is going on too. That person can also make sure that everyone in their department takes responsibility for packing their desk, files, and personal items.
Create A “Moving Committee”
This committee can consist of those same department heads or a different set of people. Have your moving committee create a list of tasks that need to be completed. Also, make sure they are relayed to the right people. In addition to needing to hire movers, you might need to hire specialty service providers, such as telephone line installers or computer network specialists. Talk to each department head and find out what specifically they need done to successfully complete the move.
