“We’d always envisioned a hybrid model, where we had both a central office and team members working remotely,” Davis said. The tech entrepreneur’s start up has enjoyed modest success, such that the small office space the team was using no longer suffices. “Our new space is actually in Cambridge,” he explained. “So I need to figure out the most efficient way to get everything we have here there without disrupting productivity too much.”
Office Relocation Services – Computer Shipping Services
While Davis’ start-up does have some office furniture and artwork, the majority of what needs to be moved is computers, servers, and some manufacturing equipment. Because these items are expensive and fragile, it is imperative to choose a Boston small load moving company that has expertise and experience.
Computer shipping services include packing computers, servers, and other electronic equipment for shipment. It also involves coordinating the pick up and delivery of the shipment, all necessary customs and insurance paperwork, and more.
Scheduling An Office Move
“When I asked my team to estimate how long it would take them to pack up their spaces and have everything ready for the movers, the replies I got ranged between two days to two weeks,” Davis said. “And I asked myself if I really wanted them spending their time packing boxes. Then I called the local pack and ship moving company and asked them how long it would take them to get our start up ready to move. The answer – less than a day. Well, that was an easy choice for me to make!”
Keys to an Efficient Move
To keep the office moving process simple and efficient, it’s recommended that your organization have a designated person whose job it is to oversee and coordinate the move. This reduces the potential for communication errors and helps streamline decision making.
While it’s often common advice to downsize before a move, when organizational productivity is a top priority, sorting through papers and whatever’s in these boxes in the supply cabinet may have to wait. “We did take this opportunity to move some materials I knew weren’t currently relevant into a storage unit,” Davis explained. Secure storage units in the Boston area are available for rental by the month, quarter, or year to meet your needs.
