You’ve been thinking about it for a while – 2016 was a successful year and you’ve acquired more staff and more equipment. But moving office is so stressful and can be expensive, especially if production is affected. However, you can’t stay in that office which you have outgrown forever, and with the help of a local relocation service the move can be a success in no time at all.
Moving to a larger office space is exciting, and shows your customers that the business is flourishing. Staff will also notice the benefits as they will have a more comfortable working space, with possible new facilities to help them do their jobs better. Overall, a suitable new office can improve productivity and staff wellbeing, boost first impressions and improve business reputation. So if you’re ready to take the leap, let the office relocation experts at Pink Chalk give you a helping hand.
We’ve put together some top tips for moving office.
Choosing the location
One of the most important aspects of a successful office move is choosing a good location for the new venue. You don’t want it to be too far away from your current office, as this could cause travel problems for your employees. You should also choose a building with good travel links to help staff and clients find you easily. Cost is also a consideration – which areas offer the most space for the least amount of money? It can be a good idea to check up and coming neighbourhoods for a good deal.
Set up a checklist and timetable
Once a new office has been secured, it’s time to start planning the relocation project. Write a checklist of everything that needs doing beforehand and a suitable date to get it done. Don’t leave everything until the last minute, as any delays cost time and money. Remember to plan your IT relocation well ahead of time, and give out jobs to staff members so everyone can help make the move a success.
On the planned day of the relocation you’ll need the help of a friendly and professional removal service. Rather than just hiring a van, why not seek the help of office removal experts? They will be able to package all your IT equipment safely and set it back up again in the new office. Fragile electronic equipment is transported safely, and the IT professionals at Pink Chalk will even check your networks and computers are all set up in the new office.
