Office Move Hints & Tips
Helpful hints and tips that will help you plan a successful office move.
Office Moves vary in size, and the number of employees and equipment that needs to be moved will determine how far in advance you should start planning your office move. Best practice suggests anywhere between 9-18 months prior to your office lease expiry date.
Book Office Removals Company
Once you know the date you are moving to your new office, you should hire an Office Removals Company to take care of moving all your office belongings to the new location. Whichever Office Removals Company you choose to appoint needs the ability to communicate the packing schedule to your staff so that everyone knows what is expected of them.
There will be a host of services and utilities that you need to transfer to the new office and ensure everything is set up and working as it should on the first day. Use this opportunity to review all your suppliers and utility companies to ensure you are on the most competitive tariff and service agreement possible. You can save your business thousands by carrying out a simple review.
Don't Forget Staff
Your staff should be at the heart of every decision you make as a business, and this is certainly true when it comes to moving office. Make sure you engage with staff at an early stage of the moving office process and communicate all your intentions about the new office so they have clear expectations and morale levels remain high.
Hire an Office Fit Out Company
To ensure that your new office encourages maximum productivity from staff and a great first impression for visitors, it's strongly advised to hire a Office Fit Out Company. They will advise on the most suitable office space plan, choice of office furniture, fixtures and furnishings that your staff will enjoy working in, and allow your business to thrive.
