Successfully Moving a Business from Manhattan to Another Borough

Successfully Moving a Business from Manhattan to Another Borough

Moving your business from Manhattan to another New York City borough (any borough) can feel a lot like moving to a whole new world. The commute will change, the scenery will change, and you might even notice a difference in culture and overall demeanor.

Business movers that are familiar with New York City and it’s 5 boroughs will easily be able to help you move the contents of your office, but before you even hire movers, it’s really important that you talk with your employees in depth regarding the move. That, along with a few other things, will help your move to run as smoothly as possible.

Stay Involved

The transition might be rough on a majority of your team, so to keep the workflow moving seamlessly, stay as involved as you can. Learn everything there is to know about the new location and office building.

Put together a pamphlet for your employees about the new office spot. Give them the details about the different ways to commute, places to have lunch and stop for happy hour after work, and where to park.

Keep in touch with your business movers, so everything goes well the day of the move. Establish times, organize boxes and separate them by room. Putting in the extra organization effort throughout the moving process will make for a truly successful move.

Tiny Details Matter

Plan on making your move at a time when rush hour isn’t happening. Discuss with the new building owner, exactly what times they’ll allow office equipment to be moved in and out of the building. Coordinate this time with your movers.

Keep a detailed inventory of everything in your office as well. This will help you sort everything when it all shows up at your brand new space. You’ll have peace of mind that all office equipment, large and small, is right where it’s supposed to be.

Make it Easy on Yourself

Hire a moving company that will take care of the hard work for you. You’ve done the footwork and the organization, so hiring reputable business movers to take care of the rest is expected. Professional movers will know the best route to take between boroughs, and the best times in which to do it.

If you’re hauling your business from Manhattan to Brooklyn, for example, you’ll want to make the trip over the bridge at the best time possible. Many people travel from Brooklyn into Manhattan on a daily basis, and since Brooklyn boasts more suburban feel than Manhattan, the population is growing. While you’re employees will probably love the feel of working in culture rich Brooklyn, they might hate the commute. Learn as much as you can about it, and let them in on the details.

All of these tips combined make for a truly successful inter-borough move. Call Simply Moving today to get a free quote started. We can’t wait to help you move.

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…
