Companies have their own needs when moving. The challenges you face as a company, where you have a group of people performing certain tasks that require specific tools and need to stay in touch with their clients, is inherently different from moving house. Nothing is impossible, however! Follow this guide and your company move will be almost effortless
As with any other type of move, it’s always a good idea to create a timeline that will allow you to outline all the necessary stages you need to undergo as you commence on your move. Depending on the size of your company, you will need to outline a time of as little as three months to eight months and more. Whatever the actual amount, you can’t start too early. You shouldn’t rush it – the more detailed your timeline, the better. Take time to constructively evaluate what problems you may encounter in the new space, which items need to go, which must be replaced, etc. Make sure you have enough room for all your co-workers and all the necessary equipment. Leave no stone unturned in your investigation. It’s also important to consider disruption minimisation – for assembly lines and other heavy equipment, you don’t want to interrupt the company workflow, so, when crafting your schedule, make sure you take into account the shifts you want your employees to work in, so that you can remove your heavy equipment one by one. This will help you maintain operations even in this critical period.
Gather your team and involve them in your work. Appoint people from each department to coordinate everyone else in their division – this will really help you keep tabs on everything that is going on in the company. Consult them to make sure you are up-to-date with all the current office issues that can interfere in the moving process. Make sure you all meet regularly to ensure that everyone is on the same page and everybody takes responsibility for their appointed tasks. Listen to your co-workers – another view point can really help make the whole process much smoother. Create a comprehensive list of task that will clearly define who has to do what. One person needs to hire the movers, so make sure someone responsible carries out this important task. Remember that you are moving a place that consists of a large group of people – communication is a key element of coordination. For this very reason, you need everyone to be informed of the progress, so make sure someone is supervising all the contacts. Also, don’t forget about your clients and collaborators – they need to be informed about your move ahead of time as well if you want your company to keep functioning!
