Things to be Mindful of When Preparing for Your Vancouver Office Move

Moving your office can be extremely exciting! Perhaps you are growing and need more space, or you finally decided to move to a newer space. While it is important to celebrate this milestone in your business, there are a lot of important things to be mindful of when moving offices. With all the different elements that go into a corporate office move – it can be overwhelming to know where to start. As Vancouver’s corporate moving experts, DLO Move Support Services has a few important things to be mindful of when packing for your Vancouver office move.

Everything takes longer than expected.

We’ve learned that sorting takes longer than expected, packing takes longer than expected, moving takes longer than expected, and unpacking takes longer than expected. It’s important to start the process early to avoid unnecessary stress and reduce the risk of mistakes due to rushing. Your team should begin packing their spaces around two weeks before the move. Don’t hesitate to look for extra support if needed. If you’re utilizing Vancouver office movers like the DLO team, they will typically offer packing assistance.

Have a disposal plan.

Inevitably, when packing you will discover many items that you don’t need, never use, are broken, or are outdated. It’s important that you decide in advance what will happen with any items you’ll no longer be needing. Removing unwanted furniture before the move will speed the operation along – and save you money! Renting a rolling bin is a great way to make it easy for your employees to recycle papers they don’t need, without having to empty your recycling bin multiple times a day. If you have gently used office furniture that you don’t need anymore, instead of sending it to the landfill, we recommend utilizing DLO’s Office Furniture Repurposing & Recycling services. This is a great way to reduce the items in your office while staying true to your company’s green promise. 

You will have more than you expect.

Just like packing will take you longer than you expect, you will also likely have more than you expect. When tucked into shelves, drawers, and closets, it’s easy to underestimate the amount of stuff our offices hold. Packing will reveal just how much you have! Utilize your disposal plan to reduce the amount of stuff you will be taking with you when you move to your new corporate office. We also recommend renting eco-bins to increase how much you can fit in each box, utilize efficient stack ability, reduce space in the moving vehicle, and improve box durability. This will ensure all your items have a secure place to be packed for the move. 

Have a moving plan.

One of the biggest things to be mindful of is your moving plan. Having a moving plan helps avoid confusion when you arrive at the new location and create a seamless corporate office move. A more efficient move results in less displacement for your employees, more productivity for your business, and happier clients. Not sure what to include in your moving plan?
