1 Day Before your Move
Finish All your Packing and Labeling
If you have any equipment that needs to be specially handled or packed mention this to the person or people who are responsible for this.
Collect Security Cards, Passes, and Keys
Refer to the inventory list and make sure you collect all parking passes, security cards, and key. You will also need to make sure they are deactivated before you dispose of them.
On the Day of the Move
Check that the utilities are working properly. Do the lights come on? Is there water running through the faucets? If something isn’t right contact the utility companies. You cannot have a fully functional office if something isn’t right.
Get your Office Set Up
Use the office plan or outline so you can arrange all of your furniture, machinery, and equipment. If you plan to hire a moving company this is where all of that planning will pay off. You’re probably aware by now that office relocation planning isn’t always easy. However, having a plan can make this stage so much easier.
Plug in the IT Systems, Internet, and telephone
Do all this with your local provider so that your office is completely connected.
Walk-through your Empty Office
Walk-through your empty office and make a note of any damages. Not only will you need to report any damage but this walk-through will also help you spot anything that has been missed in the move.
