With New York City being the the center of the world, and a great place to do business, it’s no surprise that NYC is home to thousands of businesses. From the biggest of banks to the tiniest of shops, NYC has always been the place for businesses to grow and flourish. But due to the pandemic and the downturn in the economy, many small businesses haven’t been able to survive. Some business have been forced to downsize – or worse – close their doors. It’s never an easy task to move, and it’s an even bigger endeavor to move your office. So we here at Stride have put together a few key things to keep in mind on your next office relocation.
How to Prepare for an Office Move
Firstly, you should decide where you’ll be moving all of your office inventory. Have you found a new location that works best for you and your team? Do you need to store your belongings for few weeks giving you time to figure out your next move? Take a long look at all your office inventory and see what goes and what stays. Buy red and green stickers to further help you in this process of organizing. This will help you and you team pack faster and get ready for your office move.
You’ll need packing supplies. Bubble wrap to protect your fragile inventory and boxes for loading them into. We recommend using plastic bins, because they can handle quite a bit with out breaking, but please remember not to overpack. This would make it difficult for you or you movers to pick them up on moving day. The more you spread out your inventory in these bins, the more they’ll be protected from damage during transit.
If you are on a budget because you’ve just closed your business you may be tempted to do all of this yourself, but if you can at all afford it – you should hire movers. And by that we mean professionals who are trained, and some have done hundreds – maybe even thousands – of moves during their career. They know how to protect your inventory and expedite your relocation in a timely fashion. They’ll also have blankets to help protect your fragile inventory from damage and shrink wrap to keep all your furniture clean during transport or if moved to storage. Keep everything organized and labeled as best as possible and your relocation will be a smooth one.
