How can I plan for an upcoming corporate relocation?

Preparing an office relocation can more complicated than moving a household, but planning ahead will ensure that everything goes smoothly and effortlessly on moving day. Use this guide to keep your move on track.

  1. Determine a time frame and moving schedule.
  2. Inform pertinent parties about your upcoming move.  Be sure to include:
    • Employees: All employees should be informed as soon as possible. Create a company-wide move tasks checklist detailing the process and distribute it to all employees in order to make sure they know their roles and what is expected of them.
    • Clients & Customers: Send out a mass email to everyone in your company database and post the details on your website or social media accounts.
    • Service providers, vendors and other businesses: Any company that helps you run your business will need to be notified of your move (e.g. supply providers, internet and phone services, trash removal, etc.) directly.
    • Banks: You will need to change the address on company checks.  You will also need to inform your credit card companies and any other financial institutions of your change of address.
    • The Post Office: Complete a Change of Address application to your mail forwarded to your new office for several months.  In addition, consider noting your company’s change of address in your email signatures and mentioning it on your hold / outgoing phone messages.
  3. Make a list of tasks and assign tasks to individuals
  4. Determine the new office set-up; consider creating a blueprint map and plotting office furniture lay-out.
  5. Get moving quotes from companies, check references and book movers.
  6. Contact all current service providers to inform them of the move.  Also, make sure all new providers are aware of installation dates.
  7. Book any needed technical assistance and/or equipment services installations well in advance so that services are up and running on your move-in date.
  8. Purchase or rent packing supplies:
    • The TygaBox System
    • TygaMover Labels
    • TygaSecurity Seals
    • Reusable cushioned packing materials for fragile items.
    • Markers
  9. Established a company-wide packing schedule. Determine what can be packed in advance and what areas are packed last.
  10. Provide packing instructions to employees or professional packers (if hiring) to ensure that all boxes are properly packed and labeled with office location, importance, and contents.
  11. Prepare furniture for moving by labeling each piece so it will be moved to the correct area in the new space. Be sure to label each piece so it corresponds with its location on your new office space blueprint map. Give the map to movers so they know where to place all items.

Tyga Packing Tips

  1. General Packing:
    • Pack as much as you can into every box. Less space to move around means less damage.
    • Start packing a few weeks before your move date. Start by packing the things you use less frequently, such as archived folders and office decorations. Save packing the things you use everyday until the end.
    • Pack and label each box with its contents.
    • Consider keeping an inventory list. Clearly number each box and record its contents on a running inventory list. This way you can easily identify what is contained within each box.
    • Pack your valuables, frequently used items, and essentials separately.
    • Disassemble any items you can.
  2. Packing Electronics
    • Immobilize moving parts and remove all detachable cables and wires. Color code or label wiring for easier reinstallation. Tape electrical cords to back of appliance to prevent plug damage.
    • Whenever possible use the manufacturer’s instructions for packing these items.
  3. Packing Office Appliances (coffee makers, refrigerators, etc)
    • Clean and dry all appliances at least 24 hours before your move date.
    • Tape electrical cords to each appliance and tape all doors and lids closed.

How sustainable is the TygaBox System? Does it really save trees?

  1. Since inception, TygaBox has saved over 35 million trees from being converted into corrugated boxes.
  2. Like the power of continuously compounding interest, the ecological impact of the TygaBox is that the number of trees saved multiplies exponentially for every time that they are reused.  Given a useful life of 20 years, the average TygaBox is reused over 2,000 times and each TygaBox saves about 17 trees during its lifespan, and when ready for retirement, TygyBoxes can be repurposed as plant containers, for example, to support the growth of new trees and other plants.
  3. Over 35 million Americans breathe easier today because of TygaBox*
    • *”A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 48 lbs./year and release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support 2 human beings. ~ McAliney, Mike.
