Office Move Planning
To plan an office move from scratch may seem daunting but this simple guide to planning an office move simplifies the process and helps you avoid making expensive mistakes. Moving office is simply a process that can be broken down into key stages and tasks. Trying to do everything at once will only set you into panic mode (!) and cause expensive mistakes further down the line.
Follow these basic principles to plan your office move:
1. Have a Moving Office Checklist
Whether you’ve organised an office move before or this is your first time, you’ll need to start by downloading and using a Moving Office Checklist. This will be your essential TO DO list that will guide you through the entire process. It’s packed full of handy tips to ensure success and eliminate any common mistakes being made.
2. Establish a Moving Office Timeframe
A successful office move requires a realistic timeframe so everyone is clear what needs to be done – and when. Most people planning an office move are unsure where to start and which tasks to complete in what order. So we’ve put together a Moving Office Timetable which schedules all your tasks chronologically from the date you give notice on your existing office lease, right through to the date you need to be in your new office.
3. Who’s on the Office Move Team?
No office move would be complete without a team of professionals to help you with the more technical and time-consuming tasks such as finding office space, office lease negotiations, designing and fitting out your new office, migrating your ICT infrastructure and transporting your people and equipment safely to the new office.
Office Move Budget planning and delegating tasks to other key members of staff are all part of planning an office move. And we’ve got top tips and easy-to-use templates for those too.
