Is your company moving into a new location? Hiring a corporate moving company is a simple way to ensure that everything runs smoothly during this experience. Planning a budget is another important step that helps businesses stay organized and on-track when moving into a new building. Consider these tips when planning your business relocation budget:
Speak with Your Corporate Moving Company
Start the search for a moving company as soon as you decide to move into a new office space. Finding the right moving company is essential for creating a moving budget. Meet with different options to ask about prices for various services. When you decide on a corporate moving company, ask about specific details of your move to determine how much of your budget will go to your corporate movers.
Determine Your Packing Needs
Your current office needs to be packed before you can move into a new one! Do some research to figure out how much you need to spend on packing supplies such as boxes, tape, and paper. Speak with your corporate movers to find out if they offer packing and unpacking services that can be included in your final price.
Figure Out New Furniture Expenses
Are you going to purchase new furniture or other office essentials after moving in to your new location? If so, create an estimate of how much you will spend and add this amount to your moving budget. New furniture may be necessary if your new location offers more or less space than your current one, or if current furnishings cannot make the move to a new building.
Remember to Consider Cleaning Expenses
Your current office space needs to be left in great condition. That is why it is important to consider cleaning expenses when creating your moving budget. Determine whether your employees will take care of cleaning responsibilities or if you will hire outside help.

Moving into a new office is a great way to welcome a larger employee base, a larger customer base, or both! If your company is moving into a new location, make the most of the experience by asking your corporate movers if they offer transit insurance.
Take a closer look at transit insurance by watching this short video. As you will see, transit insurance covers items as they are being transported by professional movers. This type of liability coverage gives consumers confidence when facing issues such as damage, theft, loss, or delay.

Many companies move into new office spaces after experiencing a growth in business. If your company is preparing for office relocation, start thinking of your personal moving plan as soon as possible. The sooner you start, the sooner you will enjoy personalizing your new workspace! Use these employee tips as guidelines in order to ensure a quick and easy commercial move:
Speak with Your Supervisor
Meet with your supervisor as soon as you find out about office relocation plans. Ask any questions you may have regarding the details about your new office. Find out if your supervisor has plans for each employee in order to determine a schedule for your responsibilities. If your supervisor does not have individual plans for each employee, start creating your own list of responsibilities.
Sort Through Items You Do Not Use Regularly
Packing may seem overwhelming at first, but it can be accomplished quickly and easily if you work in sections! Start with items you do not use regularly, like unneeded documents and other items in filing cabinets and on bookshelves. Sort through these items to see what you should bring to the new office and what can be discarded or donated before the move.
Pack Up Your Workspace
As you get closer to your corporate moving date, you should pack the remaining items in your workspace. Make sure to leave out items you will need to use in the days before the move. Work with your colleagues to share items so that one of you can start packing more!
Make a Layout for Your New Workspace
Now it is time to think about how you want to decorate your new workspace. If you have a similar cubicle, office, or other workspace in the new location, consider placing your items in the same type of layout. If you want a new type of layout, find new ways to arrange furniture and other office essentials.
