So, you've decided to relocate your entire office. While this is excellent news, relocating to a new environment can be difficult for anyone, especially when relocating to a new office with a team. This move will be one of the biggest things you will experience as an organization. 

To keep these things easygoing and smooth, you want to introduce multiple checkpoints that help keep things afloat. 

Today, we are breaking down the best office relocation checklist for 2022. Following this list will allow you to make this an easy, productive, and breezy move! 

Step-by-step office relocation checklist of 2022

  1. Announce the moving date 

Once you have decided to move, work on finalizing a moving date and letting your team in on it. This helps everyone stick to one date and prepare well in time before it arrives. You can reduce delays majorly by sticking to your move date and letting everyone else know it too. 

  1. Notify your landlord 

If your current office is rented, notify your landlord well before moving day. Let them know when you plan to terminate the location and move somewhere new. It gives them enough time to make their checks and gather whatever they need. This should again help you reduce delays. 

  1. Set a budget 

Your budget will need to be adjusted later in the move as you add or subtract certain activities, but setting an initial budget allows you to stay in control of your action. In addition, it will give you an idea of how much you should spend on this move. Generally, creating this initial budget allows you to stick to it even with extra costs that come later on. 

Be realistic when setting your budget, add possible damages and possible moving costs and determine the things you cannot negotiate on. 

  1. Hire the movers in time 

Hiring professionals to move is always a good idea. They can help make even the most difficult of moves seem like a breeze. Plus, hiring movers enables you to stay on schedule. The one thing you need to look out for is booking the movers well before your moving date.

  1. Assess furniture or equipment 

Moving is always the best time to eliminate unwanted things. Assessing your furniture and equipment allows you to consider all items you wish to take and all things you want to discard. 

Reviewing pieces of furniture also allows you to note things that need special handling during the move. So, fragile items like glass cabinets will need extra care, which is the perfect time to assess them. This is also the best time to let your movers know what fragile items to look out for. 

Conclusion 

Setting a checklist for any move is always beneficial. It allows you to keep the most control over your activity, even if it's one of the most challenging things you do.
