Moving can be a very complicated and time consuming process, but it doesn’t have to be. We here at Move Logistic have created a guide that you can follow to have the smoothest move possible when working with us.

2 Months Prior to Moving

• Commit 1-2 persons to manage move & maintain communication with Move Logistics representative

Identify move dates and work with personnel to ensure everyone is aware of target dates

• Begin discarding items not going to new office location

• Obtain floor layout for new office to determine more or less where furniture and
personnel will be put. Measurements may be needed to ensure items will fit as planned.

• Begin informing clients and vendors of upcoming move.

• Ensure all inspections and permits are obtained prior to moving into new office.

• Once pertinent dates are in place with Move Logistics, hold a meeting with staff members
to ensure everyone is aware of important dates.

• Obtain moving supplies-Don’t worry we can provide & deliver you all moving supplies!

• Begin compiling an inventory of all equipment and pertinent assets.

• Ensure all crucial data is backed up.

1 Month Prior

• Begin packing common areas i.e. kitchen, waiting rooms, supply closets.

• Have staff members begin packing personal belongings and files into boxes.

Tip 1: All heavy items such as books should be packed in small boxes

Tip 2: All boxes should be taped very well on bottom and top to ensure safe transport

Tip 3: Please be sure all loose and personal items are packed properly, & boxes are clearly labeled as to ‘who’ boxes belong to

• Work with your IT department to coordinate dates for all electronics to be disconnected and packed.

• Reserve elevators and loading docks for moving day.

• Coordinate changing of locks and access codes for new building. This ideally would be handled before move occurs.

• Finalize floor plans, seating arrangements, and electronics placement.

Tip 4: develop a color or number system in order to label important offices and furniture

pieces. Put onto a blueprint of new office for reference. Make several copies.

1-2 Weeks Prior

• Ensure every staff member is 100% packed and ready to go.

• If possible, arrange a tour of the new office so that everyone understands the new floor plans.

• Ensure Electricity and A/C are connected prior to move.

• Coordinate 1-4 other people to help you manage and work with movers. Create copies of

blue prints to give to staff members who will be directing movers.

1-2 Days Before Moving Day

• Check once more that all desks, file cabinets, fridges, etc. are completely empty.

• Ensure all computers, telephones, TVs, and cables/wires are disconnected and packed.

Tip 5: Every employee should take their own keyboard and mouse

• Begin putting color coded or numbered labels on offices and furniture that correlate to where they will be placed at new offices.

• Ensure everyone knows their duties and expectations prior to moving day.

Moving Day!

• General office staff should be prepped and ready at the new office to receive their belongings.

• Upon moving, office staff should stay a safe distance from movers to prevent the possibility of injuries.

• Reconnections & setups should take place after move is done to avoid delays.

• Coordinators should stay relatively stationary and prepared to help coordinate movers throughout the entire move.

• Relax! Move Logistics has you covered from start to finish!
