Moving into a New office, a New Beginning

Moving involves a removal not only of objects but also of emotions. You leave behind a past, endless stories, pleasant and hard moments, dreams made, etc.; a cocktail that makes moving a stressful experience; beyond the distance of the new address.

Moving an office is as complicated as moving a home and it can happen that people feel some helplessness in the move. It is not easy to start building roots in a new space, added to the insecurity that comes from seeing other people move our objects.

To make the move of your office is an experience with the least possible problems, there are a number of guidelines to consider that can help you to be easier to move and better control the costs involved.

The first thing is to know that there are professionals specialized in office removals. These professionals can help you turn your new office into a place very similar to your current space. The specialist in moving offices is also important to decide the most appropriate strategy for the move and organize the calendar so that it does not interfere with the work activity.

Planning is essential to simplify the moving process. It is important to plan for possible contingencies. Keep in mind that once installed in the new office there are things that might not work or require an adjustment; that is why it is vital to have alternatives planned.

The moving company is a fundamental issue. Look for one that, among its services, offers you the packing and labeling of things. There are companies that also offer complementary services such as electricians for the disconnection and connection of electronics and trained pawns for dismantling and assembling furniture and also change the locks.

It is very important to inform your work team of the moving plans and try to commit them to take care of their work and personal objects. If you can make everyone responsible for their job and follow the planning, everything will be much simpler.

Another issue to keep in mind is to inform your customers about the possible delays that your projects could have due to the move. Give them a specific timeframe about the time of the delays and stick to it.

The time factor is essential and delays can cost you the loss of customers. The fast transfer is important but it is also important to get things working after moving. Therefore, make sure that the new place has all the basic requirements of the office, such as appropriate plugs, cables, Internet connection, other technological features, etc.

The move is a good opportunity to update the technology. A new office may involve modernization

Remember to have a backup copy of all important documents before the transfer process begins.
