How to Avoid an Office Moving Disaster in Iowa City

As a business owner, one of the most exciting things you can face is your office move, but when moving day approaches it’s tempting to freak out. Your commercial moving to-do list can quickly become intimidating, but the good news is there are several things you can do to remain stress-free.

Let a Professional Mover Help You

Though Iowa City isn’t a huge city, it’s best to let the professionals take care of you on moving day. An experienced mover knows all the tips and tricks for packing, loading, transporting, and unloading your things.

The team at White Glove Movers will pack the following items so they’ll be easily transported:

  • office supplies
  • furniture
  • cabinets
  • desks

In the event that something happens along the way, our professional moving insurance guarantees your peace of mind.

And because Eastern Iowa is notorious for construction, we’ll take care of safely moving your entire office while avoiding construction in Iowa City.

Get an Early Start

Just like you prepare for conferences, meetings, and business trips months in advance, you should prep for your commercial moving project. Begin prepping your office at least two weeks ahead of time so everyone is ready. If you can plan ahead, start clearing away the clutter eight weeks prior to the big day.

Call the Pros

Commercial moving projects can be overwhelming and we wouldn’t blame you if you ask for help from several places. If your business has multiple departments, you may start to feel like you’re running a circus and everything is beginning to spin out of control. The best way to get a hold of the situation is to work with a professional moving company that can give you advice.

An experienced commercial mover will let you know what everyone needs to accomplish before and on moving day. Let your team members know what they need to do to prepare and what their responsibilities are before and during the move. 

Let Your Employees Pack 

Ask each of your employees to complete their personal packing before the move. Once all of their belongings are packed away securely, ask them to label everything.

When moving day arrives, only those who are involved directly with the move should be there. This way, your office movers have the room to move your furniture, boxes, and desks on schedule.

Ask for the Details

Before you choose a commercial moving team, ask to see a list of what’s included. This will help you understand how much is involved on your part, what your employees need to accomplish, and how much is ready to go when you enter your new space.

Will your cubicles and computers be up and running the next day in your new space? Or will your mover be skipping the unpacking? Get as many details as you can so there are no surprises along the way.
