Create An Office Relocation Timeline
Your Office Relocation Timeline
When planning and organising your office move it is essential to create an Office Relocation Timeline at least six months prior to your office move.
Using an Office Relocation Timeline will give you approximate dates and timings for important tasks for the duration of your move. Every business is different which means every office move is different; your timeline should be modified according to the circumstances of your office relocation. Try using the Moving Office Timeline Template for your office relocation. It can be tailored around your business move and circumstances.
Below is a basic timeline to assist you with a seamless office relocation:
9-6 Months Before Your Relocation
- Talk to your local Office Design and Fit Out experts to coordinate your office fit out and space planning.
- Investigate your cabling and Telecoms infrastructure in your new office space. Speak to an IT and Telecoms specialist about ordering new phone lines and IT equipment.
