Top five crucial considerations for your Office Move
Office Move Considerations
Before you do anything you need to have a clear understanding of the Office Moving Process. Without this knowledge then things are likely to go badly wrong. Once you are comfortable with the various stages of an office move you can then put together an Office Relocation Checklist that is tailored to your needs and time scales.
Help Moving Office have put together our top 5 office moving considerations that you should discuss and agree prior to your company moving office:
1. Define your goals and needs
A reliable property agent should be able to discuss your requirements with you and assess what your company needs in terms of office space (size, price, location etc).
2. Plan your moving office budget
Punching out the figures is the only way to ensure that your business sticks to what it can afford. Use this budget template to (a) identify the costs associated with an office move and (b) to help you manage your costs during the course of your office move.
3. Managing the moving process
Organising who is in charge and the individual responsibilities of each team member will help to outline who will be overseeing what in terms of relocation.
It is perfectly possible to continue to run as usual during an office move. The last thing your business wants is to experience any unplanned "downtime" during the move. The key hurdle to overcome will usually revolve around whether (or not) you have a clear IT Relocation Plan which will allow you to securely migrate your IT infrastructure.
You need to establish when you need to be operational in your new office - and then you need to work backwards to ensure that everything gets done in the right order and at the right time. Use this Office Move Timetable Template to help you do just that. Simply enter your "move date" and let the document show you what needs to be done - and when.
