Advice for office removals

Regardless of whether you are simply refurbishing your current premises, moving to a new floor in your existing building or moving your business halfway around the country, in order to ensure that the transition is a smooth one you will need to prepare and plan well in advance of moving day.

The people that you choose to serve as your office move coordinators will be crucial in making sure that the relocation is able to progress in as smooth a manner as possible.  You need to establish clear responsibilities and roles for your office move coordinators and hold meetings on a regular basis in order to ensure that important targets and dates are being met.

Working closely with your office moving coordinators should be the manager of the office moving project.  This should be somebody who has the knowledge and experience to be able to point out any potential problems with plans and who can help the move coordinators to achieve a successful relocation with as little stress as possible.

If you have decided to move your office, choosing a new location is of vital importance.  There may be a number of different reasons for the move, such as the expiration of your current lease or a desire to relocate your business to another area.  In this early stage it will be crucial to have a feasibility study done to determine precisely the amount of space you will need in a new office and how to best accommodate the future needs of your business, as well as those of your staff.
