Planning an office move is not one of the easiest things to do. With multiple hidden costs that begin to appear while you are undergoing the process of moving, it is also not one of the most inexpensive things. While there could be many external factors that affect the price of an office move, such as time of year, location, current market of equipment rentals, there are still ways you can have a successful move without breaking your bank.
Here are 4 ways you can save money during an office move:
1) Get prepared before the office move
When it comes to saving money, you want to ensure that you don’t use up too much of your company’s time and budget to prepare for the office move. As soon as you have confirmation about the move, you want to notify your staff so they can wrap their heads around it and slowly begin to consolidate their own items and pack the things they want to take with them to the new office.
2) Unpack your equipment and furniture efficiently
Similar to getting prepared for an office move, unpacking your equipment and furniture also needs to be done in a way that limits interruptions in the business operations. It’s important that you unpack the items that you need access to immediately and work on unpacking the rest as you need it. Not everything needs to be unpacked and if you feel that you have a lot of unpacking to do, you can see if another team member has downtime and can help you out.
3) Sell or recycle unused office furniture
Depending on the size of your new office, you may not need all the furniture you previously had in your old office. As post-pandemic, many companies have adopted remote or hybrid working models so, not all staff may be required to be at work in the office at the same time. This can allow you to downsize and sell the furniture you don’t have a use for. There are also options for recycling your old furniture, so they don’t end up in a landfill.
4) Hire professionals to increase efficiency
If you feel that you will not be able to get your office move done due to time constraints posed by your type of business, you can hire a professional team of office movers to help you get the job done. Your own staff can continue to work and not worry about their own deadlines during the office move. You can also rest assured that the team of office movers from DLO know how to get the job done within your budget and time frame.
