Whether you are expanding your business and need more office space or you are simply upgrading to a nicer environment; the process takes a lot of planning and consideration. Here are a few things you need to keep in mind about the moving process.
Think of your five-year plan
When choosing a new office, there is no point in choosing somewhere that you may grow out of quickly. If business has been so successful that you have had to employ more people, it makes sense to choose an office space that will accommodate more employees should business continue to succeed at the current rate. A five-year plan of what you are hoping to achieve will help you find a property that will be able to accommodate a growing team.
What transportation Do You Need?
Whether you are moving a little or a lot it is important to weigh up the options of transporting your equipment yourself or investing in a removals company. The benefits of business removals are the additional services on offer such as environmental recycling and storage solutions. Some companies offer international removals, others operate nationally and some only work in specific areas so it is important to find the best company to meet your needs.
Moving is an exciting time but it is important to always remain realistic about the process and ensure that your bases are covered throughout the entirety of the move. A few things to keep in mind when choosing your new office space are:
- Can the new premises accommodate any electrical equipment you have? Are there sufficient network ports etc?
- What is the parking situation at the new location? Will any future employees have access to the parking facilities?
- How long will the move take and how will this impact your business in the short-term? Is there a plan in place for any unforeseen delays?
The more prepared you are for a move, the more enjoyable relocation day will be.
