It’s time. Office furniture has been picked out, ordered and is on its way for delivery. After going through the space planning & design for a new office space you just moved into or reconfiguring your current workplace, installation day will finally bring the office design to life. 

This should be a time of excitement, but it can quickly turn into a stressful, overwhelming transition if you don’t properly plan for furniture installation.  

Before you install new office furniture, take steps to avoid these common problems. 

Prepare The Space 

Reinventing Space, Technology & Culture For The Workplace

Prepare your office for deliveries before the furniture arrives and you’ll save yourself a lot of trouble.  

A few days before the scheduled delivery, be sure to:

  • Remove any old office furniture that could get in the way of your new delivery. 
  • Clean the empty space before it’s loaded up with heavy desks, rugs and couches. 
  • Confirm all delivery details to make sure you have the dates and times correct. 

Inform Others Of Delivery Dates & Details

Think you can handle office furniture installation all by yourself? That might be the case, but even so, it can really benefit you to share your plans with those around you. The last thing you want is to have an employee working to close a deal in a conference room only to be interrupted with a delivery. Speak up now to make for a smoother delivery day. 

Maintenance teams, security and reception staff all need to be made aware that a delivery is being made. In addition, you might consider sharing delivery dates and times with other businesses in the building or employees to avoid conflict or interruptions.

As a business, you’re probably always looking to cut down on costs. We get it. But installing office furniture yourself can end up costing you more money, not to mention all the time that gets wasted. Your DIY installation could cause you multiple trips to the store (who knew you’d ever need a power drill in the office). You might spend hours putting everything together only to learn that it was wrong, and you need to start over…again. You could end up losing days of work to an untidy and chaotic office space. 

It’s all one, giant headache.
