Moving Office Essentials

If you are responsible for organising your company's office move, you need to know what to expect before you begin to plan the details. Here are some "need to knows" about moving office:

  • Planning an Office Move will take you longer than you expect

    Many companies underestimate what is involved in planning an office move, and no matter the size of your business, early planning will get you ahead and help you avoid costly mistakes and delays to your business.

  • You can't do it alone!

    If you're considering of winning brownie points by moving office without any professional help, think again! An office move is a collaborative effort and you will need to enlist the services of external office relocation professionals if you want a successful and smooth outcome.

  • Don't get caught out with IT!

    Beware of long lead times for internet and phone connections into the new office. Assume that it will take at least 90 days - and be sure to plan your IT Relocation well in advance so your business critical equipment is working as it should in the new office.

  • Staff WILL be affected

    An office move may just be a simple change of address for a business, but for staff it's a lot more personal. Take the time to talk them through the reasons behind the move and update them regularly with developments about the new office fit out and design to ensure they feel valued and engaged. 

  • Write it Down

    There are so many things to remember when planning an office move and it will be impossible to remember it all in your head.  Write it down and no better way to record everything than with the Moving Office Checklist.  It lists all the tasks you will need to take to plan a successful office move and you can tick them off as they're completed - making your life so much easier.
