Below are a few tips for your next move.
Keep a record of all of the expenses from your office relocation so you can try to deduct some money from your business taxes. Think about sending your books media rate to the post office so the commercial movers can focus on the larger items. You should also try to plan a move in the middle of the month when the corporate moving companies have fewer clients. Watch this video for more great tips.

Before you hire an employee, you ask a long list of questions that show you whether or not they are right for your business. When you are trying to find a corporate moving company that gives you the services you need, you should do the same. Ask the following questions to find out whether or not the commercial movers are the right fit for you:
Are You Licensed?
Protect yourself and your company by making sure your moving crew is properly licensed. A commercial moving license ensures that you are working with a reputable company.
How Do You Charge?
You should be fully informed of any charges that you will incur before you even start your office relocation. Ask whether the company charges by the hour, by weight, or by another method. You should also ask about any extra charges that could appear during the move. When you have a good idea of how much the move will cost, you can create a more accurate budget for the whole relocation process.
Is Your Staff Full-Time?
Companies that hire seasonal workers are not as able to vouch for their employees as companies that have a full-time staff. It is important that your commercial movers only work with reliable people who will show up when they are supposed to and do the job they were hired to do. A corporate moving company that works with full-time employees will be able to give you that.

You should take a leadership role in your office relocation to make it as simple and as successful as possible. Work with your commercial movers to minimize the stress of the experience and ease the transition into your new workspace. Use the following tips to streamline the moving process and decrease its effect on your business:
Communicate Freely with Your Corporate Moving Company
You should talk to your moving company more often than simply when you reserve their services and when they show up to relocate you. Stay in contact with the movers to ensure that you are both on the same page when it comes to your upcoming office move. If you have any questions, you should not be afraid to ask. The movers are there to provide you with a service that meets your needs and the only way they can do that is when you communicate.
Pack Up Some of the Small Things
The corporate moving company will handle a majority of the tasks necessary for your move, but there are a few that you and your staff can handle to make the process more efficient. Ask your staff to pack up their own desks, for example. You can also put the staff in charge of gathering up the office supplies and other small items around the workspace.
Be There on Moving Day
Just because you hire a reliable relocation company does not mean that your work is done. You should be there through every step of the actual moving day. This will ensure that the movers give you the services that you expect.
One great way to streamline your move is to work with U.M.C. Moving Company, Inc. With more than twenty years of experience, we have perfected the office relocation. To learn more about our moving or record storage services, please visit our website or call (718) 628-4477.

The right office furniture can make your workplace more aesthetically appealing to employees and clients. Old, unattractive furniture makes it difficult to get comfortable in a work environment. Before you finish planning your office relocation, look for the following signs to decide if it is time to upgrade your furniture:
You Have a Dated Décor
Furniture is often the least important aspect of a new business. When you are just starting out, you do not have the money to spend on nice office furniture. Now that you have achieved enough success to move to a new location, you are probably in a good position to update your decor. When you can collect office furniture that looks and feels nice, it is a great investment for your business.
Your Staff Gets a Lot of Backaches
Office chairs and desks directly affect how well your employees feel when sitting and working for long periods of time. If you notice that a majority of your staff is complaining about back and neck aches, it is time to upgrade to ergonomic furniture. When you can keep your employees comfortable for long periods of time, they will be better able to stay productive.
You Are Moving to a Bigger Office Space
Take advantage of your new and improved space by finding furniture that will complement it. Since you have more square footage inside your office, you should buy new furniture to make the most of it. Take the time to pick out furnishings and accessories that work well with your new space to create an office that is both attractive and functional.

Preparation is key when planning to relocate your office. If you want to execute a successful move, you have to stay organized and complete all necessary tasks. Use the following guide to figure out what needs to be done:
Hire Commercial Movers
Before you start to plan any other aspect of the move, you should find a quality corporate moving company to transport the contents of your workspace to the new office. Find a company that can work around your schedule and has a fleet that can encompass your needs. You should also try to find a company that will liquidate the items that you no longer need.
Assign Tasks to the Staff
Although the commercial movers are handling the hardest parts of the move, there are still plenty of tasks that your staff can handle. Make some office-wide checklists to which your employees can refer to see what they should be doing in the days leading up to the move. Employees should at least be responsible for organizing their own work spaces.
Notify Your Clients
When you relocate your office, it is important to inform your clients of the move. Make an effort to the spread the word about your new location. Whether use email, fliers, or phone calls, be sure to inform the public about your new location. You might want to plan a party for after the move so your customers can see the new space.
