Melbourne office relocations are a lot different than moving the family home. Not only does it involve a great deal more items, but several other people are going to be affected by the move.
Since 1995, family-owned firm Eastern Suburbs Removals has been providing professional office moves throughout Melbourne. That’s over two decades of experience in hauling materials and listening to the concerns of management and office employees.
We’ve gained plenty of experience as office movers in Melbourne, and we are going to share some of our top tips in this post today.
1. Move during a down period
If at all possible, avoid moving your office during a busy season. Chances are there are a few consecutive weeks throughout the year when business operations slow down. Make your move then so that business operations aren’t as adversely affected.
2. Know where you’re moving
Yes, you may have the address, and you have hopefully had a walk-through before confirming the move. But management needs to have a better grasp on their office space if they want the move to be simple and successful.
If possible, be sure to have a copy of the office floor plan. At the very least, take photographs of the space and start plotting out where, what, and who, will be present in which area. This will go a long way in helping you organise not only where your belongings should be shifted to by movers in Melbourne, but in getting the company up and running faster and more efficiently.
3. Get rid of what you don’t need
Why spend time and energy on junk you don’t want in the first place? Be realistic about your current and future business needs, and see this moving time as an opportunity to toss out that ancient fax-copier or to donate an old computer to a charity.
4. Don’t under-estimate the importance of labelling boxes
Label and list absolutely everything you are putting into a box, and be clear about its final destination. That way you won’t be scrambling for a stapler, a pen, or a printer (or be tempted to waste company resources on buying new office materials).
Take pictures and itemise what you are putting into each box. It’s a time-consuming task, but it will be worth it in the long run.
5. Discuss your moving plans with your movers in Melbourne
Whenever our team of movers in Melbourne at Eastern Suburbs Removals meet with commercial clients, we make sure that we discuss moving preparations with our clients so that there is 100% clarity in both our role and the client’s role during the move.
We will ask questions like:
- Will employees be packing up their own cubicles or will we?
- Will we be disposing of items?
- Do you have a plan in place for your IT items and how can we help?
