Basic things to know during office relocation

Moving itself is a very tiresome experience and moving the business would be even more stressful. Planning is the most crucial thing while you are preparing for office relocation. Moving should not take a major part of your time as you can surely utilize the valuable time for productivity. Moreover the moving should not cause burdens and it should be cost efficient for the company. Here the Chicago movers play an important role as they are professional in handling office moving.

The first thing that you must do is to get familiar with the new location. Take proper measurements of the rooms and make sure that the furniture and equipments would fit well in the new space. Create a floor plan indicating the new allocation of furniture, plants and office items which would help the employees as well as the people involved with the moving company. Reliable Chicago moving company like USA moving and storage would take proper care and mainly transport the furniture after proper padding.

Office relocation is a responsible job and people should be properly assigned for getting the work done efficiently. Maintain communication with everyone as it is crucial during commercial move. Notify everyone including employees, building owners and all others concerned about the upcoming move.

Yet another important thing that you must do is to label all the furniture and other office equipments. Plan carefully and decide where to place desks, book shelves, electronic equipments and furniture at the new location. It would be better if you can mark the belongings with colored labels so that the local movers would find it easy. If you are taking the services from moving service company, they would be responsibly labeling and packing the materials. Each colored label should represent each floor or each employee so that it would be easy for unpacking and resetting.

If you are packing the things by yourself, you must make sure to remove all the items from the bookcases and cabinets and pack them securely. It is not advisable to merely empty the filing cabinets. They should be locked or securely fastened with strings. All the personal items are the sole responsibility of the owners and you must secure everything before the move. But if you need any advice on packing, the movers would be happy to help you. Empty all the desks and cabinets before moving and never leave the loose materials but keep them sealed.
