Office relocations can be very overwhelming, stressful experiences. Having said that, when you know what to do and hire the right removal company, there’s no reason why your office relocation need be an overwhelming or unpleasant experience. Here are a few helpful tips to prepare you and your employees for a successful move.
Start Planning Early
No matter the size of your company or how much or how little equipment you have to move, the earlier you start planning the better. Most experts on the subject of office relocations advise starting to plan the project at least six months in advance to enable you to:
- Source the right space to relocate to
- Hire the right company movers
- Arrange new utility and service providers
By allowing yourself plenty of time to plan, you will have more time to get things done and there are many things that you need to do when moving into a new office space.
Hire the Right Movers
The importance of hiring the right company movers can’t be stressed enough. If you’re looking for a local company moving team, there are many factors that you will need to look for, for example, ensuring that in addition to moving services they also provide cost-effective business storage in Hampshire, that they are a reputable team and that they provide packing services as well.
Naturally, there’s a lot more that you’ll need to look for, such as experience and cost-effectiveness, so ask around and see if one of your business peers can recommend a team of expert company movers to assist you with your move. And while you may be considering taking care of the move by yourself, unless you’re moving from the spare bedroom at home into your very first office space, you’ll find that hiring a moving team is a much better choice than attempting to move on your own.
Donate What You Don’t Need
A great way to reduce the costs involved in moving into a new office space is to donate what you don’t need and keep only the things that you do. This means you will have less to move from your old space into your new space, which will reduce the cost of hiring an expert company relocation team. There are many local charities that will be happy to collect any old items that are saleable from your current workspace, so get in touch with a local charity that you believe is a good choice and arrange a time for them to collect your unwanted office equipment and furniture.
Make Sure Your New Office is Prepared in Advance
And lastly, make sure your new office space is prepared and ready before moving day. You don’t want to arrive at your new office space on the day and have to prepare it before moving in!
