    How to Declutter Your Space Before a Move

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Moving day is stressful enough without having to deal with a disorganized mess inside your office. Although you probably plan to organize and pack miscellaneous items the day before or even the day of your move, the key to a successful office relocation is to declutter your space before the movers arrive. To help you get up and running in your new office as quickly as possible, here are a few tips on how to declutter your space before the corporate moving company arrives.

    Get Organized
    First and foremost, get everyone involved in organizing the space. Not only will organizing your office help with your relocation, but it will also help you put your new office in order in less time. To organize a cluttered office space, start by filing or shredding papers and documents left lying around. Next, try to find a place for everything in your office. If there isn’t a place for something, consider how necessary it really is.

    Throw Out the Trash
    Once the important items are organized and stored away, break out the trash bags, shredders, and boxes to get rid of unnecessary junk in your office. In addition to trash and old documents, consider throwing out or donating unused office furniture and electronics to clear up space and make your relocation easier.

    Set Up Staging Areas
    Before the movers arrive, it may help to set up staging areas for the various items in your office. This will certainly help your move go faster, but it will also help you visually see everything in your office, which may make it easier for you to get rid of unwanted or unnecessary junk.

    How to Boost Your Productivity During an Office Move

    Last updated 3 months ago

    If your business is getting ready to move to a new office, you may be worried about experiencing a dip in productivity. However, if you take the right steps before and during your move, you can maintain a high level of productivity. Continue reading to learn some tips for boosting productivity during your office move.

    Be Prepared
    One of the best steps you can take to boost productivity while you move to a new office is to make sure you are prepared for the unexpected. Find out where the nearest office supply stores are from both your old and new offices. This way, you’ll know where to go in case you need to print labels or make copies while your office equipment is in transit.

    Plan Ahead
    You cannot be too prepared for an office move. Before the moving process begins, make sure you know where the cubicles will be, how your local network will be set up, and where each piece of office equipment will go. This will help you quickly get reestablished in your new office so your staff can get back to work.

    Allow for Downtime
    You might not want to think about your employees having downtime and your workflow being delayed during the move, but it is a possibility. Establish a plan of action in case the unexpected happens, notify clients before the move so they will be aware of possible delays, and make sure your employees know what their roles are in case they find themselves unable to perform their normal tasks.

    Upgrade Your Office Technology
    Relocating to a new office offers a great chance to upgrade your office equipment. Rather than moving printers, computers, monitors, and other pieces of technology that are old or malfunctioning, you can use the move as an opportunity to get rid of the outdated pieces and upgrade to newer models. When your move is complete, your workflow will be improved due to the advantages provided by the new equipment, giving your business a boost in your new office.

    If you’re getting ready to move into a new office, U.M.C. Moving Company, Inc. can help. We provide office relocation services throughout the NYC area. To find out more about our commercial moving expertise, call us at (718) 628-4477.

    Essential Tips for Staying Organized While You Unpack

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Unpacking your business’s belongings in a new office can quickly get messy if you’re not organized. First, make sure you have enough time set aside to unpack properly. If you are short on time, you may begin to rush and end up losing track of items or putting them in the wrong places. You should also stick to unpacking one area of your office at a time. Start with the most important areas for your office’s productivity, such as the workspaces for employees, and finish unpacking the areas that are less essential to daily productivity, such as the conference room. It’s also a good idea to pack a box of essential items that will help you quickly get your workflow back on track in your new office. Basic items like a printer, computer cords and cables, and an office phone can go into this box.

    U.M.C. Moving Company, Inc. offers corporate relocation services to help make your office move simple and easy. We can even do the packing and unpacking for you. To find out more or to get a moving quote, call (718) 628-4477.

    Tips for Setting Up a New Office

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Getting your business established in a new office can be a daunting, but exciting, prospect. With the right commercial mover on your side, you can soon have everything your business needs to run smoothly in a new office space. Continue reading to learn some tips for setting up your new office.

    Find the Right Space
    The most important step in getting established in a new office is finding the perfect office space. First, you should choose the right general area to set up. Next, view the available properties in that area. Be sure to narrow down your choices to those that can accommodate all of your current employees and allow for some growth in the future. If you are just starting your business, renting or leasing your office space may be a better choice than purchasing it.

    Set Up Utilities
    Once you have secured your new office space, you will want to set up the utilities. It can sometimes take a few days to make arrangements and have the utilities activated, so it is best to do this as soon as you have chosen your office. In addition to basic utilities like water and electricity, you’ll want to have your phone system and internet set up when you begin to move into the space.

    Lease or Purchase Office Equipment
    When setting up a new office, you’ll need workstations for your employees and enough chairs to accommodate everyone. Leasing these pieces of office furniture can be useful when setting up a new office, as you won’t have to worry about spending a large amount to outfit your office right away. In addition to office furniture, you’ll also want to get computers, USB and HDMI cables, and a printer as you move in. Choosing a multi-function printer will allow you to save space and money, since you won’t need a fax machine or copier.

    Once you have found your new office, let U.M.C. Moving Company, Inc. help you move everything into the space. Our NYC-based office relocation company also provides document storage services, which can be essential if you’re setting up a new office. For more information, contact us online or call (718) 628-4477.
