How to Prepare for an Office Move
How you should prepare for an Office Move
An office move is a generally complex task, involving endless practical and strategic tasks that can quickly become a nightmare if you are not fully prepared. Thorough and careful planning can minimise headaches and make your corporate move both efficient and (relatively) painless.
Plan your Removals
The physical part of your move is what’s likely to cause most disruption and chaos if it hasn’t been planned for efficiently. If you haven’t done so already, contact a professional Office Removals Company in your local area to get a quotation for your move. A good removals company will usually want to visit your premises to assess how much furniture you need to move and discuss the timing and logistics of the move in more detail. Work with your office removals company to prepare your office for the move. This will include tasks such as office clearance, communicating the new seating arrangements and planning the logistics of the move day to ensure there is minimal interruption to business.
Who’s on the Team?
One of the most critical components of a successful relocation is hiring in move experts to get their input on the various stages of the move. For example, you’ll need a property agent to help you find the right office and negotiate the lease, a solicitor will review the legal aspects of the lease and an office fit-out company will design and configure the space to your requirements. These team members are vital to ensure the transfer to the new office dovetails smoothly.
Timing is Everything!
Timing is key when it comes to moving office and you should always be mindful of how one late deadline can have a knock on affect of all the other elements - and may even delay your move. An easy way to manage your timeline is to download the Moving Office Timetable as it calculates how long each stage is likely to take and will help you work to a realistic timeframe for the move. Moving needn’t be that stressful once you have done your due diligence and preparations using the tools and resources available on Help Moving Office.
