6 TIPS TO REDUCE OFFICE MOVING STRESS
#1 Before moving your office, it is important to note that you need to start the planning early. Give yourself at least three months of time to put together a clear plan. Evaluate what needs to be moved and decide what should be donated or securely eliminated. Keep employees in the loop as your plans unfold so they can manage workflow appropriately and support a smooth transition process.
#2 It is essential to dispose safely old laptops, phones or any gadgets lying around to protect your company's security and prevent harmful environmental damage. Do not trade, sell, donate or recycle old electronics until you've wiped them clean.
#3 Let customers know that you may be a bit slower returning emails or answering phones during the moving period. If your employees are helping out during the transition period with moving related duties, consider designating one employee as the emergency client contqct. This ensures uninterrupted client support without distractions.
#4 Conduct a thorough analysis of all parts of your office and divide items between "essentials" and "non-essentials". Reduce downtime by moving non-essential items first to your new office space. .
#5 Is your company downsizing to a smaller space? Opting to put rarely used documents and files in storage rather than taking up space in your office will help cut down on overhead costs. .
#6 In addition to updating vendors and clients about your new address, don't forget to change your information with Google. Simply updating address information with Google My Business listing won't be sufficient. You will need to fix your data on websites and social media pages also.
