Create a moving task force. You don’t have to shoulder the entire burden of a move. Indeed, that could be an impossible task and, therefore, a guaranteed failure. Establish a task force consisting of key employees who can offer assistance and guidance during the entire moving process.
Meet with a space planner and/or interior designer. Trying to fit everything into a new space with little or no expertise is asking for trouble. Make sure you enlist the help of professionals.
Take inventory and toss what you don’t need. Moving can be an excellent time to clean house. As you’re taking inventory (do this so that you can make sure everything has arrived safely following the move), consider getting rid of extraneous equipment, papers, and other items that the office has amassed.
Interview moving companies. It’s never too early to begin collecting information about moving companies and then following up with interviews. Be sure to thoroughly check references, too.
Meet with communications staff. Knowing how the phone system and computer facilities will operate at the new location is a must. It’s incumbent on you to make sure that service will not be interrupted. The best way to ensure minimal disruption is to meet with communications staff on a regular basis.
Contact appropriate utilities. You’ll need to contact your local utility companies for various services like phone, electricity, and water. Provide them with stop and start dates and schedule any necessary appointments that will require your presence.
