Moving offices can be a hectic experience mostly because you will not have the opportunity of being able to start out early unlike with a house. When moving houses, you have the chance to start packing early so that you can make the moving process a lot easier but with an office, every day that you do not work is money lost for the company and you cannot afford to start packing up computers and furniture until the very last minute which makes the whole process a lot more hectic.
Divide in to teams and allocate tasks
The first thing that you will need to do is to make a list of everything that needs to get done on moving day and then you will need to divide your staff in to teams and allocate different tasks to each team. Have a team leader who will be in charge of each task. You will also need to have someone in charge to deal with the furniture removals company. One good way to handle the furniture would be to have each person in charge of their own office furniture and have them take responsibility for their own things so that only the general use items will need to be taken care of by the teams.If you are moving out of state, you will need to have interstate removalists from Melbourne to interstate do the job for you and this can be a lot more work and a lot more money. This means that you will need to finish the whole move with just one trip from your old office to your new office.
For this reason, you will need to place a lot more responsibility on your staff to take control. You might be able to have them work after hours on a certain day to help to pack up the things closer to moving day and you can offer them food and drinks for the work that they are doing and for their effort in working after hours. You will need to make sure that this is on a voluntary basis and that you are understanding when certain people are unable to do so. If you have an office vehicle or if you have your own vehicle, you can save a trip by packing a few of the things in to your own vehicle as well. If any of your staff are going to be travelling in their own vehicles to the new office, you can have them take a few things across as well in order to save money.
