The New Year can be an excellent time for an office move. There are fewer workers in the office, clients are taking time off, and everything is moving relatively slowly because everyone is recovering from the holiday season. This slow-paced season is the perfect time to embark on the big office move you’ve been too busy or overwhelmed to do throughout the year.
Regardless of the season, a big move can feel stressful and chaotic without the right help. At American Moving & Installation, we make it our priority to provide reliable service, extensively trained professionals, and state-of-the-art equipment all year round. We would be happy to help you plan and execute your big new year office move.
4 Tips to Make Your Holiday Office Move Easier
While the first few days of the new year can start off slow and be a time to relax and enjoy time with loved ones, it can also be an excellent time to get a head start on the new year. Moving is stressful on any day, but responsibilities and commitments might make a big office move feel like too much to handle. Thankfully, there are tips to ease some stress when planning your office move during the start of a new year. The following are four tips to make your new year move easier:
Plan in Advance
The best way to ensure everything runs smoothly is by preparing months in advance for any issues and problems that might arise. Planning ahead of time gives you enough time to handle all the paperwork before the move. This way, you will not have to deal with paperwork during the move. You can handle tasks like changing mail forwarding, changing your address with the IRS and for your business license, and arranging for cable, internet, and phone connection. By moving day, you will be done with the paperwork, and you will be able to focus purely on the move itself.
Sort and Organize Early
Before packing everything into boxes, make sure to take the time to sort out items you no longer need. This is the time to remove any clutter in the current location to make the new location neat and organized. Start compiling items into categories; therefore, when it does come time to start packing, everything is already in its place. Having a packing plan will make leaving the old location easy and help when unpacking at the new location.
Be Mindful of Hazardous Weather and Have a Backup Plan
Weather can be temperamental, especially in January. While it’s impossible to predict the weather months in advance, it is possible to prepare for the worst. If an unexpected storm comes in on moving day, having a backup plan will help you redirect the move. Having more than one possible moving day can help ensure that the process keeps moving forward despite lousy weather.
Find an Excellent Moving Company
The best way to ensure a streamlined move is to hire experienced commercial movers to plan and execute your move. A good moving company will provide you with all the tools and help necessary for your move. They will have the resources and team to execute the move and guide you throughout the entire process. The moving company’s team and equipment can help your move run smoothly and eliminate any unnecessary stress.
