5 Ways to Prepare for Your NYC Office Move in Advance

5 Ways to Prepare for Your NYC Office Move in Advance

Making the decision to uproot an entire office and move it across town (or down the street, for that matter) is not an easy one. It takes a lot of planning, especially in the City that Never Sleeps. It can be a hectic, busy time and it’s best to try to prepare in advance.

You’ve decided on a new location, and you’ve contacted and hired movers. Now, it’s time to get serious about packing up the office. Getting organized ahead of time is the only way to go about an office move. If you don’t, you’ll lose your mind, probably along with a few other things.

Let Your Employees Know

Let your employees know early on that you’re moving the location of the office. They’ll need plenty of time to adapt, especially if you’re switching boroughs. It will take a while for them to get used to the idea, the new area, and to plan their commute.

Also, if they know ahead of time, they’ll be easier to communicate with prior to and throughout the duration of the move. Things will run at a smoother, faster pace if they’re working alongside you.

Hire a Professional Business Mover

Hiring a professional mover is essential for an office move, but it’s also important to be sure that you’re hiring a company that is well versed in moving businesses…within NYC. The parking, the traffic, and pedestrians are all things that come into major play during any NYC move.

Establishing a good relationship with a reputable business mover will give you peace of mind before and during the move. Also, you’ll have a schedule of exactly what is going to happen on moving day.

Form a Committee

You can lead it, or hire one of your trusted employees to manage it. Either way, forming a committee made of up a few people dedicated to organizing the move will help greatly with efficiency.

Have them organize packing days, assign tasks to the rest of the office, and keep an open line of communication with everyone. They should also be responsible for where things will go in the new office space.

Visit the New Office Space

If you visit the new space a handful of times before the move, you and your committee will be able to decide where and how to set up. Not to mention you’ll know the ins and outs of the location before you officially arrive. Communicating important aspects of the new space, like where to park and times the building will be unlocked, is vital to employees settling in.

Know the New Neighborhood

If you’re switching boroughs, say from Manhattan to The Bronx, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the neighborhood. After all, The Bronx is quite different from Manhattan! As the northernmost borough of New York City, The Bronx is rich with culture, and is sometimes referred to as the friendliest NYC borough. It’s definitely a bit different from Manhattan, so give your employees (and yourself) time to adjust.

There is certainly quite a bit that goes into it, but if you’re ready to get started on your office move, contact Simply Moving today for a free quote!

    We couldn’t be happier with our recent move with Simply Moving.

    Their prices were affordable, in fact, a lot cheaper than the quotes we got from the other movers we had called in the NYC area.

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

    Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

    P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
