Tips for Successfully Moving Your Office

Whether you’re relocating an office of five or five hundred employees, you’ll want to follow the same guidelines for prepping, packing and moving your business. Here are some of the top tips for successfully navigating your commercial relocation:


  • Start early! Let your staff know you’re moving well ahead of time and have them schedule some prep time every week.  
  • Clean and purge: Depending on your business, files over a certain age (5-10 years) can be tossed out. Check with your accountant to be sure – some files need to be kept long-term for tax purposes. 
  • Records that need long term storage (legal and medical, for example) should be separated and sent to your storage facility. If you use paperwork and files for current clients, consider digitizing them and using software – it’s the 21st century!  
  • Clear out and reduce personal clutter around the office. Check the closets, locker areas, and storage rooms where clutter accumulates.  Donate those old gift baskets, empty vases, and office supplies no one uses anymore. Schools are a great place to donate – they even take empty ink cartridges for fundraising. 
  • Take inventory of your office furniture and make note of anything that’s broken or not being used. Moving is a great time to reorganize and make sure each workspace is in good repair and efficient for the employee.  
  • Sell or donate any surplus furniture or office equipment a few weeks before the move.
  • Take an inventory of your computers, printers, and other IT equipment. If something is outdated and needs replacing, don’t pay to move it. Make sure everything is in working order and decide whether you need it at your new business location.
  • Dispose of old computer equipment properly – donate it if it’s working or recycle it. Old cords and cables should be recycled for their copper. Be sure to keep computers and monitors out of the trash and out of the landfill.
  • Make a notebook (and digital file or spreadsheet) of your inventory to keep track of everything during the move.
  • Buy large colored stickers and assign each workstation a unique color. Decide on a uniform naming system for labels – “Employee name/Job” for example.
  • Before disassembling any computer setup, make sure everything is backed up and you have a secure copy of all your data.
  • Have employees pack their own desk areas the day before the movers arrive. As they pack their workstation, they’ll use one sticker color to label everything – including any computers, printers, cords and cables they’ll use at their new desk. Pack computer cords, phone, printer etc. in one box for quick and easy setup.
  • Make a box or two labeled “Open First” and pack the essentials – paper towels, hand soap, toilet paper, coffee maker, snacks – anything that’ll help you function normally on moving day. Ask your movers to load that box last and unload it first!  Set up your kitchen/break area and bathrooms right away to help everyone settle in at your new office. 

Though there’s a lot you can do to prepare for your move, the best first step is hiring a knowledgeable moving company that can facilitate the entire process. To find a commercial moving company in Portland, OR, call Cheap Movers Portland.
