Expert Advice on Moving Offices

Moving offices is about making choices, the right informed choices that will enable your business to grow and flourish in a new environment. Making important decisions about the future of your business is never easy; like which office space to choose - in which location - at what price? Then there's the complex issues surrounding the office lease; what terms are best for the business, how long should I committ to? And this is even before you' ve thought about how your new office should look and where desks should be located.

Moving office is just like anything else in business, it helps to have a professional by your side to help you make the right choices, avoid costly mistakes, save you money and simply lessen the amount of nail-biting you have to endure before, during and after your relocation.

Of course, you have to pay for the right expert advice, but in the long run, the right guidance can increase business performance, grow your client base, and reduce your overheads.

Here's who you'll need on board your Office Relocation Team to get the best results:

A Property Agent

Trying to find the office space and negotiate the right lease terms is a lengthy and complex business. By having a good Property Agent at your side who knows their local market inside out, will not only save you heaps of time, but will also enable you to end up in the right space, on the right terms, at the right price.

A Property Solicitor

The office lease transaction is one of the largest financial and legal transaction your business is likely to undertake. Having a good Property Solicitor will ensure everything in the lease is correctly documented, check that there are no errors and protect your companies best interests.

An Office Fit-Out Company

Your newly found office will be a blank canvas, and you'll want to use it to your advantage. Space planning, office furniture choices, colour scheme, acoustics and use of lighting all play an important role in increasing staff performance and morale, improving brand perception and create the right first impression. It's important to get it right so talk to an Office Fit-Out expert.

An IT Relocation Company

Whether you're moving >25 PCs, an entire data centre or a dedicated server, you'll need the assurance that your crucial IT equipment will be up, running and working on the first day in your new office. More importantly, you'll need the IT instructure and network cabling set up in your new office in advance of the move. Even if you have a dedicated IT department they are unlikely to be able to take on board the complex logistics of an IT relocation. Don't leave "IT" to chance - get expert advice from an IT Relocation Company.

An Office Removals Company

A professional Office Removals Company will ensure all of your belongings are carefully packed, labelled and transported to the new office, and that they end up in the right place when you get to the other end. Before you know it, your new office will be fully functional without any disruption. Sounds too good to be true? It isn't when you hire the right Office Removals Company.
