For many startups and even more established businesses, this means their team is also growing, with more departments being introduced into the company. This also means that you’ll be needing larger premises.
When you’re moving offices, there’s bulky furniture to handle, electronics such as computers, printers, and scanners to move safely. You have to figure out which department sits where, how the space is being allotted, and more.
In order to tackle office relocations successfully, here are some tips for your move:
1. Plan in advance
If you’re on the hunt for a new space, or have already found one, planning ahead is the only way to pull this move off. Obtain blueprints and maps of your new office location, look at the space you have and compare it to what you have already.
Set a budget, game plan and then begin your mission. Give yourself a realistic timeline of a few months to pack up and a couple more to fully settle in.
2. Change address orders in time
Make sure all your contacts, clients, suppliers, etc. have your updated address. Letterheads, business cards, official documents, return addresses and any other documents that require your new location should be updated and sent out well before the move.
3. Hire a moving company
Not only do you need all hands on deck, you’ll require professional help as well. PM Movers offer local moving services in Dubai for your ease. We offer packing and transportation services and our movers offer services in Palm Jumeriah, Arabian Ranches and other surrounding areas. They will help organize your belongings efficiently and safely. Given how complicated it can be, especially when handling heavy items as well as delicate ones, it’s best to rely on trained professionals.
4. Designate tasks
In addition to hiring professional movers, you can also designate tasks to your teams. Ask people to pack and clean their own desks, take care of personal belongings and help out with the rest of the organizing process. Not only will this create a sense of ownership, but it also allows your movers to finish moving quickly.
5. Get IT support
When it comes to workplaces and offices, having your networks set up and running is crucial. Your IT team needs to be proactive and offer any support they can, ensuring that your internet, computer systems, and internal networks are routed and all systems are a go by the time you’re ready to move in.
Your work is bound to slow down during the move, which is why it’s best to get all the help you can to speed things up and have them running more smoothly. Get in touch with us to learn more!
