How To Start Your Office Move Planning
When you have been given the responsibility of planning and organising your business relocation, it can seem extremely daunting knowing where to begin. An office relocation is a major undertaking and there are many things to plan and consider.
However do not feel over whelmed, we are here the point you in the right direction for the beginning stages of your office move. Below are some planning points to get your office move off to the right start:
1. Review the reasons behind your office move
For example is your business moving because of expansion, downsizing, lease expiry or to reduce costs. The motivation behind your office relocation will help to formulae your Office Relocation Project Plan and help you to decide the requirements of your new office space.
2. Put together an office relocation Project Team
The project team will assist and support you with the move, so you won’t feel all alone with such a big task. Your project team should consist of internal and external resources, such as a Property Agent.
3. Work out how much office space you will need
Find this out by using the Office Space Calculator. You will then need to brief your Property Agent of your office space requirements. They will also need to know the location and your budget requirements for your new office space.
4. Once you have viewed properties with your Property Agent
Your Property Agent will negotiate the office lease on your behalf and get the best market deal. When you are happy have a Property Solicitor review the lease and outline your responsibilities before you sign anything.
5. Speak to an Office Fit Out and Design Expert
Discuss the requirements for your office layout and look at different colour schemes and designs for your new company image.
6. Now its time to get at least 3 quotes from Office Removal Companies in your area
Then decide which company fits the requirements of your office relocation.
7. Organise and plan the migration of all your IT and Telecoms equipment
This should include data back, ordering new phones lines and network cabling. When in doubt talk the experts.
