Depending on the size of your business, moving your entire office to a new location can get pretty pricey pretty fast. Especially if you’re trying to simultaneously keep two places up and running while the move is completed.
There are a couple measures you can take to make sure that you don’t waste precious time and money, after all, you do have a business to run. It all comes down to perfect planning, and a few other little tips and tricks that we’ve learned along the way.
Choose A Reputable Moving Company
Okay, this seems like it might cost you more money, right? Well, it could…but you’ll save thousands in the long run. Moving an office is a massive task, and keeping your employees on hand to complete the move will likely end up costing you more than hiring a company who knows what they’re doing.
You could go with a company who offers dirt cheap prices, but you won’t get any sort of quality control. Industrial printers and the bustling streets of New York City do not mesh well. If you don’t have someone familiar with expertly maneuvering office equipment through the crowded street, you’ll end up with broken office appliances.
A good, honest company will give you a good honest price. They will also take care of your things the way you would, and get it all safely to its new location.
Sell, Sell, Sell
If you can’t find someone to purchase your unwanted used office supplies and furniture in New York City, then you’re not trying. A fantastic way to make money and save on moving costs is to sell anything you won’t use at your new location.
Shelves, printers, desktop computers, desks, cubicle walls…all of it is fair game! Brand new office equipment can be incredibly expensive, so chances are there will be more than one person interested in what you’ve got to offer.
Get A Head Start
Getting started on your move in advance will help you to save on the scramble that will come of hiring office movers last minute. If you pack what you can on a daily basis, you’ll be surprised at how quick and easy it is to get organized.
Let your office moving company know exactly what they’ll have to do and when they’ll have to do it. This can help to gather an accurate estimate that you’ll know how to plan funding around. Also, pick up discarded cardboard boxes so you don’t have to buy them, and they are so easy to find in the City, and can be recycled again and again.
