A Step-by-Step Guide to Organizing an Office Move

If you’re moving your office to a new building, you might be celebrating a recent success that has allowed your business to take the next step forward. As exciting as this is, you need to plan your move in New York City carefully to make sure everything works out. First, you’ll need to find a viable place to move to. Then, you can look for a moving company in your area that specifically deals with corporate relocation. Finally, either you or your moving company will go back and clean up the old space. Feast your eyes on this step-by-step guide to organizing an office move.

Look for a New Space

Once you have decided that moving to a new space is the right idea for your business, start looking at what’s available. It’s helpful to get an idea of what other places will cost, how advantageous the space will be, and the logistics of the move, even if you’re not quite ready to pull the trigger yet. No matter how close to being ready you are, you will need a landing spot before you can set the plan in motion.

Hire a Moving Company

You may have worked with moving companies if you’ve moved to a different home before. Corporate location is similar, but there will be more furniture, appliances, and files to transport. That’s why you should work with a corporate relocation specialist rather than a mover who dabbles in all forms of moving. Make sure your moving services actually specialize in corporate moving, as these are the experts who have years of experience in exactly the service you need.

Clean Up Your Old Office

Depending on what kind of moving services you end up using, you might be able to have the professionals go back to the old office and clean up. Your lease may require you to leave the old space in “broom swept” condition, meaning that none of your furniture is left behind. You or your moving company can go back and get rid of any file cabinets, chairs, and desks that you no longer need.
