Brooklyn Movers New York have dealt with office moving for a long time. So we know that there are are a few things you’ll need to do when you start your office moving process: 

  • Make an announcement to your employees as soon as possible
  • Have them clean out their own desks when the time comes 
  • Inform anyone affected by the move before it happens

Get the list of the inventory

To make the process easier, have everyone make you a list of the items that are in the office they work in. If you can’t afford to have your workers waste time on that, consider hiring professional movers to help you.

Get the inventory of: 

  • Offices 
  • Kitchen space 
  • Workspaces 
  • Electronics 
  • Bathroom
  • Storage spaces 

If you had an excel overview of all the items that you have – that would be most helpful. That way, you could have all of the items listed in one place and it would make counting them much easier.

Figure out new office arrangements when office moving

When you know how many (and which) items you have, have a blueprint of your new office space ready from the very beginning. It will help you plan where to put your current furniture and how to organize your offices. 

What should you keep in mind? 

  • Kitchen and bathroom placements 
  • Office table placements and the lights 
  • Are the doorframes and hallways big enough for your furniture or it need disassembling
