Tips for organising an office relocation
To ensure your office move is carried out with minimum disruption to your business and staff, we've put together some office relocation tips to make your office move go like clockwork: -
Plan in advance
It's never too early to start planning your office relocation. Using our Moving Office Timetable is one of the easiest ways of working out your moving office schedule from start to finish.
Keep employees informed
Communication should be at the heart of every office relocation and keeping key decision makers, stakeholders and employees involved in the key stages of the office move will help everyone feel a part of it.
Do your research on which moving office professionals to use
Selecting the right professional team to work with for the component parts of an office move is the single biggest factor that will affect the outcome of that office move. Obtain 3 quotes from different companies before making a decision on who will handle your office relocation.
Backup your Data
Make a copy of all important data well before you move office and store a copy of it at an off-site data storage centre. This way, you can be sure your valuable business information won't be lost if anything goes wrong (or missing!) during your relocation.
Review your telecom and IT service providers
Your telecoms and IT requirements may well be different in your new office, so it's an ideal time to switch suppliers who may be able to offer you a better rate. Ask your IT & Telecoms Consultant to find you the best deal.
Secure parking permits
You may need to liaise with local authorities to obtain parking permits for the office removals vans. Equally make sure staff have any necessary parking permits or access to bike racks for the new office building ahead of their first day in the new premises.
There are other critical factors that need to be considered, but the end game is an office move that minimises disruption to your existing business whilst ensuring the future growth as early as possible. Read more Office Relocation Tips.
