Plan The Perfect Office Removal

Step 1: What's the reason for moving?

Whether you need office removal for downsizing or expanding, because you want a better location or in order to reduce your rental costs, be clear about what you want and what your goals are. Your business will suffer if you don't make the right choices and you don't prepare well for the move and the changes that come along with it. Be clear and honest about the reasons for the relocation with your partners, clients and employees.

Step 2: Prepare a Checklist

This is the ultimate starting stage of the office removal, which is essential for your success. The checklist is like a road map for everyone involved in the process. If you don't have time to do one, hire someone who will organize the whole thing for you.

Step 3: Know The Important Dates

After you have decided the date of the relocation, let everyone know and start establishing the important tasks day by day. It is hard to organize an office move while trying to maintain a fully-working business without any disruption, but it's not impossible.

Step 4: Define Your Budget

When doing an office removal you need to have an idea how much it is going to cost you and it's essential to know how exactly the money is distributed among people and tasks. Define a budget that is realistic and covers the main points, but allow changes. Beware of scammers and people who will try to fool you just because you need their services and they think you don't have any other option.

Step 5: Hire The Removals Company

Choose wisely the removals company as these are the people you will trust with your business and equipment. Meet them and let them pay you a visit too. Decide what will be packed and what you can dispose of before the removal.

Step 6: Plan the Office Plan and Design

If you haven't had time to think about the office plan and how everything will fit in there, it's best to do it before packing. The proper labeling of the moving boxes depends on where each item and piece of equipment should go. Therefore, you need to have a clear plan of how the office will look like, where will people sit and how the equipment will fit. If you can't do that yourself, hire a fit-out professional and he will transform the place into the perfect office - functional and effective.

Step 7: IT Relocation Should Be Planned

The logistics of the removal are just as important as all the other tasks. If you want to continue work right after the relocation, it's essential to move all computers and telephones and make sure the equipment is working properly, the Internet connection is powerful and there are no technology issues. It may seem like common sense, but not dealing with this matter in a timely manner can result in plenty of issues and disruption to the office work. After all, an office removal shouldn't affect the business and the business should never stop.

Step 8: Finalise The Office Lease

Have a Property Solicitor check the office lease before you sign it. If you have any questions about it, discuss it with the landlord or owner and don't rush into signing just because you want to go back to work.

Considering these easy steps will help you have an easy, quick and efficient office removal, which won't affect your business negatively.
