5 Organizing Tips for Your Office Move That Are Not a Waste of Time

OMX blog cover

Did you know that around 9 in 10 businesses move into a new office at least once every decade?

Whether it’s to save money or find a better location with more foot traffic, there are tons of reasons why moving can benefit a business. Even though there’s a lot to gain, that doesn’t mean that planning an office move isn’t stressful.

Are you moving offices soon? Keep reading for 5 expert tips that can help you stay calm and organized.

1. Hire a Moving Company

Moving an office is no easy feat, which is why hiring a moving company can help you save lots of time and other valuable resources. Another bonus is that experienced movers can help you pack everything in a safe, organized manner. If this is your first office move, strategizing with your movers can make the process much smoother.

2. Think About Square Footage

Are you moving into a new office that’s a different size or layout? If so, you’ll want to spend some time studying the blueprints so you can make the most out of your space. Downsizing is a tricky task in particular, so you’ll have to think about which supplies are essential and which supplies you can do without.

Sometimes seeing the space in person can give you a better idea of how you want your office to look. If a visit is feasible, be sure to take your phone along to record a walking tour. Having this footage can help you remember every detail throughout the entire planning process.

3. Work Closely with Your Employees

As soon as you know that you’re going to move, you need to speak with your employees so they can start preparing, too. Moving can create a lot of concerns, so it’s important to be open about the move and send out regular updates to avoid unnecessary stress.

4. Build a Team and Make a Realistic Moving Timeline

Since there are a lot of different chores that need to get done, it’s nice to get your employees involved with the move. If you develop a special moving team, they can help you develop a realistic moving timeline and outline everything that needs to be completed to make this transition as seamless as possible.

5. Inform Your Clients About the Office Move

One downside of office relocation is that you have the potential to lose customers. This is why it’s crucial to create a list of all of your clients’ contact information so you can keep track of who you’ve informed and who needs to be informed. Updating your business website, social media, and any other platforms can also help everyone stay in touch.

With these 5 tips for moving offices, you can make sure your business thrives at its new location.

"Thank you very much for the great service your team provided. We were changing plans and re-thinking things and your team helped us find solutions. Looking forward to working with you again!"

"I wanted to let you know what a great job your crew did yesterday. Just really warm, helpful and efficient. The move went smoothly on both ends and they even added an extra stop for us when requested, and helped our CEO rearrange her office to accommodate a piece of furniture that initially seemed not to fit. Just a great experience all around. I will definitely recommend OMX to others. Well done and thanks!"

Mission Square Retirement
"I want to send a special thank you to the entire OMX team. I truly value all of your hard work and excellent customer service! You guys are always willing to go above and beyond. I look forward to having your team back onsite very soon."

Hogan Lovells
"I’ve managed countless moves for Hogan Lovells and this was one of the smoothest moves, if not the smoothest move I have ever been involved with. Trust was the most important factor for choosing OMX. There were a lot of moving parts to our move (things to dispose of, other things to be donated) and OMX handled all of this accurately and easily."

David M. August 2021

"I have to say your OMX team was unbelievable. They were professional, responsive, hard-working, and above all, they were the best. All of my personnel were grateful for your team’s work. I would highly recommend your company to any agency that has to move. Thank you again."

"Just wanted to let you know that your team did a terrific job with our internal moves last week. They showed up right on schedule, with the equipment needed, and very efficiently got the job done. They even went out of their way to add some extra screws to tighten up a desk leg that needed some work. They were a pleasure to work with!"
