Here at Eco Movers we don’t just help people move home, we’ve also got years of expertise in helping businesses to move. In that time, we have seen many examples of well-planned office moves, but we also know it just takes a small issue to cause big problems. And, unlike home moves where an oversight by the client causes frustration on the day but has minimal impact longer-term, a misplaced item or forgotten key can have a significant impact on a business following a move.

Eco Movers is here to support you during your business move, but you and your team can do a lot to help make the day run smoothly for everyone. Here is our suggestion for a rough timeline for your office move.

Once the move is agreed

  • Get your movers onboard. They will be able to help with any questions you have about the more technical aspects of the move.
  • Inform the staff. You don’t need to go into huge levels of detail at this stage but some information on where and when will do at this stage.
  • Set up a project team. We’d recommend one point of contact for each department or floor to help with organising the move and act as a point of contact for colleagues in that area.

Four weeks before

  • Have a clear out. The less you have to move, the less there is to go wrong. Encourage your staff to “clear out the clutter” leading up to the move.
  • Give more details to colleagues. It’s really important that your team feel engaged and involved in the move. By now, you should be able to tell them when they will need to be packed by and what (if anything) they will have to do on the day of the move.

One week before

  • Label everything. Everything that’s to be moved should be labelled clearly with a name and new location. This includes larger items of furniture such as desks and bookcases. This label should correspond to a plan of the new location, so the movers know where to put everything.
  • Pack non-essentials. Items such as archive filing and other items not in everyday should be packed now.

On moving day

  • If you haven’t selected a full service office move, you might need to pack essential items – this could include confidential items, computers, phones and other things that are vital to your business.
  • Use your project team – they should be present in their designated areas to liaise with staff and movers should any problems arise.
  • Keep calm! Your movers have done this many times before – use their expertise to help you move safely and calmly to your new premises.
