Planning plays an important role in any type of move, especially a corporate move. If you are getting ready for an office relocation, then you can get your team ready by creating a moving plan. This outline will help you stay on track and tackle all of the essentials needed to enjoy a successful move. Without a planning outline, you and your team may fall victim to some of these common corporate moving mistakes:
Not calling a pre-move meeting. Unlike a residential move that involves one family, a corporate move involves every member of the office team. With so many people involved, it is easy to feel overwhelmed or to feel as though the moving process is not under control. Maintaining control is the only way to have a pleasant moving experience, which is why it is important to make sure all team members are prepared. Call a pre-move meeting to discuss the office moving schedule with your employees. You can also use this time to encourage employees to start cleaning and packing up their individual work spaces.
Choosing a moving company based on price alone. Many moving companies offer office relocation services, providing a variety of options for office managers. A lot of office managers worry about spending too much on a corporate moving company. This often results in a search for the least expensive option. But choosing a moving company based on price alone can be risky, as the cheapest option is typically not the highest-quality option. Instead of focusing on the price, you should focus on finding a moving company with a great reputation and plenty of happy clients!
Not asking for a cost estimate. Creating a budget is the best way to get an idea of what you will be spending on your corporate move. This number won’t help you out too much if you don’t ask your moving company for a cost estimate, though. Your movers should be able to give you an accurate estimate.
