How to Ensure a Stress Free Office Move

June 23rd, 2014 | Posted by Lise Cartwright in Moving Tips | Office Removals and Relocations | Removals Services - (Comments Off on How to Ensure a Stress Free Office Move)

Even if you’re moving to a different floor in the same building, any office move is a complicated and tedious task, which is why you should hire the best in Gold Coast removalist services, Labrador Removals.

Moving across town or even to a different state makes the process all the more difficult and challenging. Knowing how to efficiently manage the process requires a lot of planning, coordination and speed as your business can be affected by the loss of valuable work time.

When it comes to office removals, Gold Coast-based Labrador Removals is the most trusted removals company in the business.

5 Guidelines to Make Your Move More Productive:

  1. Even for a minor office move, make sure you know where the cubicles will be located and where all your network connections will be based. Local area and wireless networks affect various areas of today’s businesses, including printers, scanners, copiers and numerous PCs. So ensuring that you have these mapped out before you move will ensure you are up and running as quickly as possible at the other end.
  2. Uncertainty is always a factor in any move, so staying on your feet and being alert in case (and when) anything goes wrong is key to making sure you can respond quickly. For example, make sure you have back up resources while your office equipment is offline in case you need anything done urgently or there is damage to a machine during the move.
  3. With any move comes the opportunity to upgrade aging hardware and software programs that have been nagging at you for a while. A new office should have fresh technology, not bulky computer monitors, so it may be a good time to donate old machinery and upgrade your equipment accordingly.
  4. There is a probable chance that your business may have to be shut down for a few days while the move is taking place and so systems can get back online. Unexpected delays can, and often do occur, so it’s a good idea to be proactive and set up “Out of Office” e-mail notifications and voicemails to let clients and business partners know what is going on. If possible, leave the move till the weekend.
  5. If obtaining new hardware and software systems, making your programs and applications work for you by doing the ‘heavy lifting’ ahead of time is a great way to ensure you get back to work as quickly as possible after the move is completed. To achieve this, save all your user options and migrate to the new systems and/or PCs before you move.

No matter what the size of your company is, any office move requires careful planning and coordination. If possible, making the move during the weekend will mitigate any potential impact to your business by addressing any downtimes and dealing with less client interactions.
