Planning a move when you work from home can be slightly more complicated than a traditional relocation. After all, you’re changing workplaces and your home. So what can you do to make the move easier? Let’s take a look at this process and what you can do to make it all go seamlessly.
Moving your home office, like any other move, is all about packing the non essentials – if you aren’t using your printer much go ahead and box it, and some paper up – keep it handy so that you can pull it out and use it if you need to. If you do use it, but not other parts of your computer often, consider packing them away as soon as you can. You can also take this chance to decide whether anything needs to be upgraded, disposed of or renewed. Got cartridges of ink that you want to recycle? Take them back or get them refilled as soon as you can then pack them away. It will be one less job to deal with and it will save you money.
You’ll also need to consider how you’ll fulfill your duties while continuing to work from home. Will you be able to work on your laptop? Or will your Internet connection be completely non-existent for the next month, while you close down one house and settle into a new one. You’ll also have to consider shipping issues – if you collect items regularly, you’ll need to make arrangements for them. If you’ve got stock that’s regularly sent to you, what will happen in the ‘grey’ area between your old house and new house?
