Submitted by Tech Support on Wed, 05/19/2021 - 12:51

With regards to an office move, numerous organizations center around their new space and preparing it for their workers, hardware, furniture, innovation, etc. Clearly, the entirety of this is important to guarantee that the move is smooth and productive. Notwithstanding, there is another piece of the workplace moving puzzle that is significant yet is frequently neglected since it isn't about the new space by any stretch of the imagination: it is about the prospective old space.

Organizations need to have an office space decommission intend to guarantee that they appropriately eliminate furniture, hardware, FFE, and other all things that aren't going to the new location. Without a doubt, just abandoning them for the landowner or leasing company isn't a choice. Organizations that disregard this part of their office move might be obligated for extra costs that could without much of a stretch run into the large numbers or even huge number of dollars that they did not have to spend.

The excellent news is that with the prior arrangement ahead of time, you can appropriately decommission your office space easily. While your arrangement should consider explicit factors and factors that are unique to your circumstance, underneath is an overall outline that will help you in the correct way when it makes a difference most: before your relocation day – not afterward.

1. Cautiously go through your lease agreement. 

The well-known adage goes that "the devil is in the details," and you should take note when decommissioning your office space. Cautiously go through your business lease and ensure you completely comprehend your commitments. For instance, some business leases request that inhabitants vacuum the region, while others may require cabling or wiring to be turned back to its condition before you moved in. Ask questions of your landlord to gain the most insight possible. 

2. Direct a review and choose how to manage your undesirable or superfluous resources.

It is far-fetched that the entirety of your items (for example furniture, gear, FFE, and so forth) will head your new space.. This is on the grounds that a few things may require significant fixes (and might be less expensive/simpler to buy new) or may not be of use to you and your team. For instance, your new office space may have an open office format, which makes your present desk and cubes obsolete.

Well in front of moving day, meet with your team and review to recognize resources that you don't need/don't have to take with you to the new space. From that point, figure out whether everything will be given, reused, sold, or arranged. 

3. Pick an office moving organization that offers solutions

Numerous organizations are terribly shocked to discover that their office moving organization doesn't have the aptitude or ability to help give you solutions, including (yet not restricted to) start to finish office space decommission support. Sadly, when this becomes known, it is past the point of no return: the move has effectively started or has completed, and organizations are blowing up calls and letters from their previous landowner, property management company or their lawyers.
