Help Moving Office has all the answers to side-step the most common office relocation mistakes and improve your chances of a successful office relocation.
Mistake 1: Starting the process too late
Never underestimate the amount of organisation an office relocation requires. Don't wait for your office lease expiry date, start weighing up your options 9-18 months in advance to give you the best possible chance of a successful outcome.
Mistake 2: Relying on your own resources
Companies that try to relocate their business by themselves with no professional advice, end up making wrong decisions on choice of office space and make costly mistakes that can easily be avoided with the right professional advice. Find out what professional advice you need when relocating your office.
Mistake 3: Miscalculating Office Space Requirements
Many companies under or over estimate their space requirements and outgrow their office space too quickly. Use the FREE Office Space Calculator to work out the approximate size office that will best-suit your business. You should also factor in an additional 10% to allow more space as your business grows.
