Changing to a new location sounds intimidating – and often exciting. Relocating to larger premises offers so many possibilities, but how will you get there and set up shop?

Equally, moving your business is sometimes unavoidable. Rental rates and consumer bases can change, and eventually, you may have to move your company for practical reasons.

Keep reading to learn the best tricks and techniques to relocate your company with minimal stress and maximum efficiency.

1. Use High-Quality Storage Containers

Storage containers are a great way to ensure that everything is accounted for when moving. There tends to be a rush when moving out of a location – deadlines must be met, and sometimes that means having to keep important equipment in storage for a while.

Sometimes you may have to move out of one location several days before you have access to your new location, making it tricky to meet these deadlines. To make it easier, high-quality portable storage containers are readily available so that you have a safe place to store all of your items.

2. Stay Organized

Keeping everything as tidy as possible is a great way to avoid complications as you move. Organization is 100% necessary when you are moving – and not as easy as you might think.

When you are in a rush to pack, items can be put in boxes where it is difficult to find them again. Some helpful tricks you can use when packing to stay organized are:

  1. Label everything
  2. Keep lists of where items are, for example, lists of where the “computer cords” or “Spring merchandise” are packed and what items are included
  3. Give clear directions for your team if you have multiple people working to pack

Clear labeling can solve so many problems. Know what you have and where it is!

3. Deep Clean Before Packing

If you have ample time before your move-out deadlines, it will make your life so much easier if you can plan to clean and declutter before you start to pack.

Going through all of your office supplies and merchandise will give you a chance to remove old items, out of order, broken, or unusable for any reason. These things can lead to clutter and complicate your moving process.

There are cases, of course, where you aren’t given the luxury of time and must then work around decluttering and packing at the same time, which is tricky. However, if you can remove as much clutter as possible, you will be able to start fresh and with a clean slate at your new location.

4. Start With A Plan

When you start your move, you will need a plan. The plan you make will depend on the time you have left before your move-out date. This is because if you have 6 weeks, you can’t expect to have everything ready and in storage in 2 weeks, or you’ll lose too much time.

The best way to make this plan work for you is to start with identifying things you need daily vs. weekly for business. The things you need daily should be packed last, whereas things only needed weekly (or monthly) should be the first to pack.

Getting the timing right so that the most important things will be instantly available after the move will make the transition much easier.

Final Thoughts

Getting your company packed and ready for a big move is essential for a successful and smooth transition.

Find good storage options, plan your move ahead of time, and take the opportunity to get rid of useless office clutter! We guarantee you’ll enjoy a seamless transition to your new workplace.
