Are you about to move from your previous office space into a new office in Vancouver? If this is your first time, you may have heard some things about office moving, whether it’s online or even word of mouth from those around you. Although everybody’s office moving experience differs from person to person, there are some misconceptions and/or myths that are floating around. We recommend doing your research and speaking to an experienced Vancouver office moving company to clear up any misconceptions you may have regarding your future move.
Here are the top 5 Vancouver office moving myths you may hear:
1) You need to have everything planned down to a tee
Yes, it is almost never a bad idea to have some sort of rough plan in mind, even if you don’t have the time to formulate a full one, but there is nothing wrong with putting all your trust in the hands of a well-established Vancouver office moving company. So you don’t need to have everything planned from the pre-move to the post-move, you just need to ensure that your office moving company of choice provides office moving coordination services so a coordinator will be on site of the move and ensure everything is taken care of.
2) You can do the office move on your own with just your team
Although doing an office move with just you and your team is not impossible, it is not recommended if it is your first time doing it. Depending on the line of work you do in your business, you may not have a lot of time to do the actual move due to time constraints. It is very common for first time office moves to take longer than originally planned due to unexpected last minute changes or issues that occur. DLO Move Support Services Ltd. provides you with a professional team that can assist you on the day of your move.
3) Pack and take everything from your current office into your new one
Regardless of how long you have stayed at your current office, you may have heard that it is best to pack everything up and take it to your new office. One of the biggest misconceptions about this is that you and your team will end up unpacking and setting up many office equipment or pieces of furniture you no longer have a use for. It is a better idea to sort and consolidate all your old things instead of unnecessarily moving them into your new office. DLO Move Support Services Ltd. offer office furniture repurposing and recycling services so you can be stress free during the move.
4) I don’t need to rent any equipment for the move
This one could be considered a myth depending on perspective as well as the capabilities of your team members. If you feel that it is possible to do a successful office move without the need of renting moving equipment, you may be correct. However, an advantage of utilizing rental equipment is that they increase productivity and reduce time so you and your team can ultimately be more efficient. If you are looking for rental equipment, you should consider using eco-bins, rolling tubs, dollars, and maybe even library carts so you don’t have to make as many trips back and forth.
5) There’s no point in renting a temporary storage space
Depending on how much equipment you have at your old office, renting a temporary storage space may be the best option for you. Although it may be an extra added cost, you would be able to hold your redundant furniture or use it as a temporary staging place. When it comes to office moving services, DLO has a 25,000 square foot storage space in Vancouver that comes in handy. They provide pick up, retrieval, and set up often on the same day, as well as solutions for keeping track of the inventory.
