No matter the reason, putting all of your office furniture and important files into boxes and settling somewhere new is a big decision. There are many things to consider before relocating to ensure you maximize your time and efficiency and don’t end up scrambling at the last minute. The last thing you want is to lose precious work hours and sleep over an improperly planned move.
CRS Moving & Storage uses our 20-plus years of experience in the moving industry to help our clients formulate a logistics plan. This will detail all moving dates, what exactly you need moved, and where it’s headed. We will ensure all of the important details and questions have been asked and addressed, setting you and your business up for success.
3 Important Questions To Ask Before Relocating an Office
Whether you’re downsizing, upsizing, or your former lease is ending, relocating your business and team takes a good amount of time and planning. When you are in the middle stages and have some time before the big moving out day comes, it’s vital to consider the following three questions:
What Is the Time Frame?
It doesn’t always work out that the moving out and moving in dates align perfectly. When this is the case, you must have a backup plan for your business. With CRS Moving & Storage, our team of professionals will package your goods and ship them straight to one of our five centrally-located storage facilities, where they can stay until it is time for the moving date.
Similarly, ensure you have enough time to have sorted through everything before the movers arrive. Do you know what you want to keep and what you are interested in liquidating?
What Is Coming With Us?
If your old and new offices are the same size, figuring out what is coming with you may not be a concern. However, if your new space is smaller to accommodate a hybrid work style or cost-effective model, you might have decided you don’t need all your office furniture anymore. In this case, it is imperative to have a plan for all of the furniture you are not taking with you.
We offer eco-friendly liquidation services, ranging from disposal, recycling, to donation. With the furniture that does make the cut, we provide all packaging materials, including custom-sized boxes, padding paper, and more. Inventory is taken to ensure nothing is left behind or damaged in the process.
Will This Disrupt the Workflow?
One of the biggest concerns of an office move is not disrupting the everyday life of your business. Even one day of interrupted workflow can cause hours of catch-up and pushbacks. If you have a gap between your moving out and moving in dates, don’t fear: we offer more than just storage. While you keep everything organized and waiting in one of our climate-controlled units, you can utilize our WiFi and get some work done right at the facility. 24/7 access means you don’t have to worry about shipping delays or missed deliveries.
