How to Perfectly Execute a Commercial or Office Move

Executing a commercial or office move differs greatly from carrying out a residential one. For one thing, the scope and sheer amount of stuff that is usually moved in a commercial or office move dwarfs any standard residential one. This makes the logistical and planning aspects of a commercial or office move extremely important. Here are the top tips to help with those two things so your commercial or office move goes as smoothly as possible.

1. Choose one person to oversee everything

We've all heard the term 'too many cooks in the kitchen'. This old adage applies perfectly to commercial or office moving. If there are too many people who have a say in the process or authority over how things are done, conflicts are sure to arise. This can make your office moving day a complete disaster. As a business owner or the executive in charge, you need to select one employee who will oversee everything and have the final say when the big day arrives. This will cut down on confusion and allow the person in charge to focus only on the task at hand. 



2. Confirm your Calgary commercial movers have insurance

When you hire a moving company for your commercial or office move, you assume they have the proper insurance and WCB coverage to protect their customers and property. Well you know what they say about assumptions and the word assume. You make a first three letters out of the last three letters. By confirming that your commercial or office movers have adequate insurance and WCB coverage, you can rest easy knowing all your critical assets and infrastructure will be properly insured should anything untoward happen to them.

3. Make sure your employees or workers have their own moving materials

A lot of people don't like change. This can be especially true when it comes to having to move offices or workplaces. We become comfortable in our surroundings and don't like when things are disrupted. One way you can make your commercial or office move more palatable for your employees is by making sure they each have their own specific moving materials so they can organize their stuff and easily find it at the new space. Your workers will feel appreciated and there won't be any office meltdowns at the new place when Karen can't find her favourite stapler. 

While moving offices can be an extremely stressful situation, by following the above tips you'll put you and your company in the best position to make it a seamless affair. As chaos is inevitable come the big day, try your best to embrace it and put a positive spin on the whole process. It's supposed to be an exciting time after all!
