Office Moves Made Easy

Help Moving Office - the new Office Relocation Planning Website

Help Moving Office is the brainchild of Jeremy Carr-Smith who, after more than 15 years in the commercial property market, believes too many businesses are throwing away precious time, money and resources simply by not planning their move in a strategic and organised fashion.

Now he has developed, the specialist online resource to guide companies through the stresses and strains of an office move. It aims to streamline the process by providing access to free information and resources – including guides, tools and checklists.

Carr-Smith's own research shows that in around three quarters of office relocations, the person tasked with handling the move is doing so for the first time, leaving them with a real disadvantage in terms of knowing how the process works and what needs to be done.

In addition, 9 times out of 10, they will have to juggle the moving project on top of their existing role, with the result that they will struggle to find the time to fulfil either job to full potential.

"I've always been concerned that many companies do not give enough strategic and operational thought to the whole moving office process," said Carr-Smith. "After their employees, property costs are the highest expenditure for most businesses yet we see the same mistakes been made time and time again. Primarily, they underestimate what is involved with an office relocation, they don't start the process early enough and they have a misplaced belief that they can save money by not engaging the services of external professional help. This is a false economy and, as a result, many office moves end up being a time-consuming and stressful job fraught with difficulty and expensive mistakes that could have been avoided."

In today's environment – now more than ever – companies should be looking to extract every ounce of value they can from everything they do. For an office relocation, there is no question that this is best achieved through businesses combining their understanding of their own priorities with the expert advice and market knowledge of office move professionals. This not only ensures that they don't make any critical mistakes but also saves them money over the term of the lease.

Carr-Smith continues: "The end game for most companies should be to end up in the right property, on the right terms, with the right deal, with the right office design and layout, with the right furniture in the right places, with everything working on that first morning in the new office – and all this having happened on time, to budget and with the minimum hassle and disruption to the business. Easy when you say it quickly!"

Carr-Smith says he knows that moving office can be a daunting process, but by launching Moving Office, he and his team hope to demonstrate how an office move can be broken down into a series of simple tasks and checks.

"Once companies can see what they need to do, when and how they need to do it, we then provide them with the connections to the right companies who can help them with the specific component parts of their move," Carr-Smith adds.

"Making the whole process as smooth as possible is what Moving Office is all about and what every company should be looking to achieve. After all, a successful office move can make a real difference to a business and be a great opportunity to affect positive change management, improve performance and increase morale and momentum. Getting it wrong can have the opposite effect."

An office move can get companies into better, cheaper and more appropriate space – which not only reduces overheads but also better positions them for the future.

The Moving Office website provides advice and information on everything from the first steps of putting a project team together to plan the office relocation, through to the day the last box is unpacked. Downloadable project plans, budget tools, office space calculators and timelines are all easily available, while two essential reports for reading are the Golden Rules of Moving Office and the Moving Office Checklist.

If your company is planning an office then Help Moving Office can provide you with all of the planning information needed to achieve the smooth and successful office move that your business expects.
