Moving an office is a significant project that most office operations professionals will tackle at least once during their career. The logistics, planning, preparation, and communication required to pull off a move without a hitch can seem endless, especially on top of an already packed schedule. This guide outlines what to expect during your move, provides a detailed, customizable checklist to organize your move, and a template to keep track of your service providers and vendors.
Lay the groundwork for a well-organized move: make a plan, identify your new space, and research and vet service providers
Set yourself up for success as your moving day approaches: Confirm Service providers, finalize logistics, and prep your spaces
With advance preparation, moving day should be straightforward: Stay organized, communicate, and be attentive to your new and old spaces
Post move, settle into your new space, but don’t neglect the old: Orient your co-workers to your new office, set up systems to maintain your new space, and clean and repair your old
Moving an office is not a deadline that you can really miss, because it affects so many people. Plan everything out the best you can, and allow for some flexibility, because stuff is gonna hit the fan at some point.
