If you need to move your business, the best place to start to plan how to pack and move is right here. Moving an office is a large undertaking that may require additional help in the form of other colleagues or by hiring professional packers. The key to a successful move is to build some alliances who can help motivate and coordinate the rest of the employee moving. Raleigh moving professionals offer some basic steps to start the moving process.

Plan the Move
Create a timeline that will allow for all the necessary stages of your move. This will need to be discussed with the rest of your moving team or with the managers and supervisors to ensure that it is feasible for everyone. For a small office, you’ll need at least three months to prepare and for a medium to large office, at least, six to eight months. The key is to start as early as possible.

See the Layout
The next step is to collect all information on the new space. Try to acquire blueprints or floor layout so you can identify key components such as electrical outlets, storage space, etc. and most importantly, to determine the new office layout. It is also a good idea to have a general layout plan for your current space so you can compare the two if there are areas in the current office that are not working.

Identify Required Changes
Also make a list of potential problems with the new space, such as a smaller reception area or less storage area or perhaps a larger open space that may require more cubicles or temporary walls. It may be necessary to hire carpenters or painters if walls need to be constructed or painted. This may have been addressed when the new space was acquired, but just make sure that no additional construction changes need to be completed prior to the move.

Gather Your Team
For medium to large office, appoint (or ask for volunteers), someone from each department or division to coordinate an employee moving team. This could be assigned to the department supervisor or manager who can then ensure that each employee takes responsibility for packing their desk, files and personal items. For smaller offices, you may be on your own. If so, identify a few key people who may be able to help with coordinating the move.
