It is very important to appoint one person from your company to organize your office move from the beginning to the end. This person should be responsible for all communications and logistics of the move within your company and writes a short guide for your employees.
In that guide all the procedures that need to be followed during and after the move should be described. Everybody should be aware of every detail of the upcoming move including employees, landlords, movers and renters. They all need to know the exact moving plan before the actual move. The less questions on the day of moving, the better. The movers need to be told exactly where each piece of furniture needs to be placed.
One way of helping out the mover is by using the method of labeling all your furniture and other equipment. For your office move you should plan carefully where to place desks, bookcases, electronic equipment, and other office furniture and appliances at the new location. To make it easier for everyone, especially the movers make sure to mark each piece with colored labels. Colors can represent different floors or different employees. Place the marks on spots that will be easily visible to the movers. Read our packing tips article for more labeling hints.
