Whether you run a big corporation or a small family business, office moves can be a logistical nightmare. The good news is that by working with movers you can trust, you can ensure that everything will run without a hitch.
If you’re in the early stages of planning your office, here are some key factors to take into consideration:
How to get started
The first port of call for most business is to keep costs low. Good removal companies don’t have to cost the earth. At the same time it’s important that you never compromise on an outstanding service. You should engage with your moving company as a matter of priority. That way you can start a dialogue, and receive a special quote that is fair and transparent. Look out for sneaky hidden costs, such as extortionate parking charges.

The saying may go, “even the best laid plans can go wrong”, but when it comes to office moves that couldn’t be further from the truth. Make sure that your staff are ready and motivated for the big day. Creating a key project team and delegating roles and responsibilities effectively will save you time and hassle. Keep channels of communication open so that everyone knows exactly what they’re doing at any given time. And remember! Your staff may even be able to give insightful opinions on how your new office should be configured to achieve the best possible working environment.
Notify your networks
It’s a good idea to begin notifying your colleagues, business partners, clients and the general public of your move as soon as possible. A move offers an exciting and fresh start for your business so let the world know about it! Easy ways to get this done in a jiffy is to issue an email circular or newsletter, make a statement on your website and social media and even physically at your current offices. For some companies, organising a soft launch of your new offices can be great for your professional networking.
Good luck with your office move. If you need any further assistance, please don’t hesitate to call your movers.
