The Small Move Company’s Guide to Moving Office

Moving office is a task in itself, so to help you out a little we’ve compiled a checklist for you to follow!

Six weeks prior to the move

Ensure that you measure out the new office space in preparation for the furniture design and layouts.

Four weeks prior to the move

Arrange for a security company to come and survey your new office premises if your management company does not do this. Then ask your furniture suppliers if they are able to offer any advice about the layout and design in order to make the best use of the office space.

Proceed to contact the Small Move Company and obtain quotes for your move.

Make sure that you arrange any phone lines and electronics – your IT support will be able to assist you with the technical aspect of the move.

Three weeks prior to the move

The same routine as moving house, ensure that all of your existing suppliers are informed that you are moving, thus you should move or cancel everything, from cleaners to maintenance engineers.

When ordering any stationary with the new business address, and organise the change of address notifications which means they are ready to send.

Fortnight prior to the move

Take the chance, while the office is empty, to install the broadband and have your phone lines put up. Set up forwarding telephone numbers, or if you are able to transfer your phone numbers with your telephone providers.

Proceed to set up a postal redirect that is ready for the move date and send out your change of address notifications.

You may want to arrange for external storage of your desks, files, and IT equipment if there is a potential delay between your moving out and moving in date.

One week prior to the move

Set up large pieces of your storage furniture so they are available for use straight away and ask your IT company to set up all of the cables, servers and wiring.

Day of the move

Relax and let us take care of the rest!
