The ultimate office move checklist

Moving house can be a stressful process, we’re all aware of this! However relocating offices is a whole new kettle of fish, especially when you consider all of the files and furnishings you may be moving. We’ve compiled the ‘ultimate office move checklist’ to help you minimise the chaos and maximise efficiency!

The checklist

  • Usteam office movee the floor plan of your new office to experiment with layouts
  • Does your new office come with furnishings or do you need to take your own? Arriving to your new office with double the amount of furniture you need is not a good way to start the day!
  • Back up your files before you unplug any computers or transport laptops
  • Move paper files into a locked cabinet or store archive files for safekeeping until you’ve finished moving offices
  • Box work stations individually if you can (packing computer equipment that goes together can lessen the stress of finding leads etc.)
  • Empty desk drawers and lock them so your removal company can manoeuvre them more easily
  • If you rent your office furniture make sure to inform the rental company of the move
  • Plan who’s items need moving in first and so should be loaded into the van last.
  • Pack up anything you don’t need immediately (office posters/signage) a few days before the move, giving you time to focus on the important items on the day
  • Inform your utility companies about moving – this will help minimise down time in regards to telephone services
  • Tell your broadband provider that you’re moving well in advance (that way you won’t have to go without email and the internet for days or weeks)
