4 Tips to Prepare for a Corporate Relocation
When you move your office, you’re moving multiple people from one location to another. This impacts everyone in their family and may cause stress and anxiety. You can make it easier on everyone by following these steps before moving day:
- Assign a point person. Assigning a single point of contact can make the move go much more smoothly. Choose someone responsible and willing to take on the responsibility of spearheading the relocation. This person can send out emails regarding the move, coordinate with your commercial movers in Baton Rouge, and become the single point of information to avoid confusion.
- Put together moving kits for employees. Moving kits make it easier for employees to organize their equipment, files, and office supplies. Common items for moving kits include boxes, storage bags for cords, Sharpie markers to properly label boxes, and plenty of packing tape. Once you develop a labeling system, you can include labels and instructions as part of the moving kits. You may have to customize the kits for employees with more files and paper material than others. Be sure to instruct everyone to include their name, department, and content descriptions on every box.
- Trust the professionals. If you need someone to plan the move of your electronic equipment and coordinate with vendors and internal IT staff, The Quality Group can handle this as part of our vendor coordination services. We can also provide a relocation project manager to deal with your point person to coordinate packing, transportation, and moving to the new location.
- Keep everyone in the loop. Give clients, vendors, and employees plenty of notice prior to the move. You can start by changing labels, stationary, brochures, business cards and any paper items with your address on it. Make sure that your website, email signatures, and other electronic communications have your new address as well.
We look forward to meeting you and will work hard to make the transition as smooth as possible. In fact, whenever possible, we move your modular furniture, files, and other items overnight so that your employees can get unpacked and settled in the next day.
