Office moving: what to do and what not to do

Office moving: what to do and what not to do

The process of office relocation can be filled with a great deal of uncertainty when it comes to knowing what you should and should not be doing throughout, especially for those who have never been involved with such a move before.  It is an enormous responsibility to organize an office move.

An office move requires the organization of a wide array of individuals and companies, as well as the accurate coordination of relocation deadlines and budgets in order for the moving project to be successfully achieved.  Being aware of the right and wrong ways to move an office will not only give you greater confidence but will also help you to do a better job and make the relocation smooth and successful. Most companies will chose to hire professional moving services to move the office.

It is important to do some forward planning and start organizing the move as soon as you can ‒ preferably nine months prior to the date range the office move is to take place. This should give you plenty of time to get organized.  It is also a good idea to get professional advice from moving companies, office designers and property agents in relation to all the different stages of your office relocation.

You should never begin planning an office relocation before you have examined your office lease’s exit clause.  The notice period is legally binding and has to be exercised correctly and in the appropriate time frame.  It is also a bad idea to underestimate your plans for growth and where your company may be in another five to ten years.
