Moving Your Office?

Relocating a business can take a lot of time and effort, especially if you have numerous employees and lots of equipment that needs to be transported. The logistics involved in setting up a new office space can be overwhelming, and if you’re getting new chairs, desks, and computers, you may need somewhere to store your old equipment until you can sell it, donate it, or decide what to do with it. At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we can help you find the ideal self-storage space for anything you need to store during this transition.

Moving Out of Your Old Building

If not, the entire day’s timing could be thrown off and you may not accomplish everything that needs to get done (namely getting everyone and everything moved into the new space). One way to make sure everything goes smoothly is to make a complete inventory of what’s in your current building. You can note which chairs and desks are going to the new building, which ones are going into storage, and which ones need to be replaced due to age or damage. Having this comprehensive list can help you coordinate with your commercial movers and decide what is essential to move to your new office.

Moving Into Your New Building

A new office building can provide you with the opportunity to grow your business and gain more customers. When you arrive on moving day, make sure there is a flow to how things will be brought in and set up. Will employees be responsible for moving their own computers, or will your moving company be taking care of that? You want to get everything up and running as quickly as possible, and knowing who is responsible for what can take some of the stress off of your shoulders as a business owner.

Another important step is to plan out how everything will be arranged in your new office. Does the reception area need a desk, or is there one built into the space? You’ll want to know how and if everything you’re moving will fit before you get it up to the fifth floor and find out that something doesn’t work. Taking proper measurements of all of your equipment, as well as your new office space, can help you avoid this issue.

Storing Office Equipment
