4 Important Factors to Coordinate a Successful Lab or Bioscience Move

If you are planning your lab move, you may wonder where to start when coordinating the process. With so many moving parts, all team members should be involved. Our talented and professional team handles all of your moving needs and guides you on the following factors:

Having a Detailed Schedule and Moving Plan

Taking on the task of planning a lab move may be overwhelming, but our project coordinators can help you take everything into account so nothing gets left behind. During this process, it’s important to consider every piece of equipment and the scope of the move itself to establish a timetable and other logistics. We can also work with you to determine when your lab needs to be moved and where your items should go in the new lab. 

It’s also crucial to consider how long it will take to curate the plan. Taking this into account increases the likelihood of the move going smoothly and preventing delays. You may also want team member feedback on the plan to allow room for insight. This also keeps everyone informed and on task.

Maintaining Strong Communication

Communication during a lab move is essential, no matter the size or scope. Keeping everyone up to date on upcoming changes prevents confusion and promotes productivity. You may want to communicate with your team about the following:

  • When equipment will be shut down, packed, and moved
  • How long it will take for equipment to be set up and operational in the new lab
  • An overview of the entire move with a schedule of events
  • When items will become accessible

Because your entire team gets involved with a lab move, you may want to coordinate a meeting to discuss the plan and ensure everyone is on the same page.

Having a Backup Plan

Sometimes, no matter how much you plan, something may go wrong. Anything from the weather to equipment availability may get in the way of your schedule. Your project coordinator can work with you to devise contingency plans that create flexibility and allow room for any potential delays or obstacles during your move.

Taking Inventory of Your Items

Understanding how much you will have to move to your new location can help us come up with the best plan for you. Our movers can also assess potential risks with hazardous materials and better understand how to pack and ship your items safely. Additionally, taking inventory allows you to discard any items you no longer need, so you can have a more cost-effective move.
