Relocation is often the result of a company’s expansion or the end of its current lease. An expanding business isn’t a bad thing. However, once a business begins to grow, more office space is often needed. Whether you’re moving from a home office to a new workspace or relocating from one commercial building to another, choosing an office space for your business isn’t easy. Once you have chosen your new location, the move itself is the next bridge you’ll have to cross. Businesses make money when the company is up and running; therefore, since your whole business, or parts of it at various times, will be non-operational during the move, you want to make sure the process is as efficient as possible.

With the floor plan for your new location, work out at which desk each person will sit.
Assign each desk a number. It’s easiest to sequentially number the desks. Also alter the number pattern per department. For example, if all your Marketing people sit in one area, assign their desks numbers 100 to 150, your IT Team 200 to 220, Customer Service 300 to 340, and so on. It makes items and areas more easily identifiable.
People with individual offices should have a number assigned to the office. I would number offices situated next to each other sequentially.
Match your numbered floor plan with the staff members who will be assigned that desk/office.
Name communal spaces, up to you if you use names or numbers, just make sure they are clear.
Work with IT to ensure all data and power needs are ready (or will be ready) for moving day.
Confirm that you have all details to access the building and that there will be parking available for removalists. Read More on Planning for your Office Moving
