Ok, not sure if this is going in the right place, but this seems the most likely place to start:
My office, with its 25 users, 4 servers and 35 workstations are likely moving to a new space this summer. So I want opinions from those who have done moves before on a few issues:
1. What sort of documentation should I be preparing for this? I have already downloaded a moving checklist (thank you TR) and I am sure I am going to need to remake a network map for the new space. What other sorts of documentation should I be looking at creating for this move?
2. What are the issues that I need to be aware of for finish out? I know I will have to cable and install some hardware in general, but when should I be doing this sort of work (or getting contractors to do it really).
3. Movers. I am assuming at this point, that movers will be employed to move the office. Has anyone used any particular movers and do you have recommendations as far as what type of movers to use and what sort of questions to ask to make sure my computer equipment isn’t harmed.
4. What sort of changes did you slip in with the move. Since moving is a time of massive upheaval anyway, I am thinking of slipping in some new items (new monitors to replace old equipment, new desks, etc) as part of the move. What sort of projects and/or modifications were you able to make along with the move and how ambitious should I be with these projects?
Thanks in advance for your input, and if we do end up moving this summer, I may ask for prayer requests for my sanity.
