For many business owners, moving office is no mean feat. Consideration needs to be given to ensuring that the premises are the best choice in terms of location, size and for facilities. Even the smaller details and implications of updating marketing collateral and suppliers etc with new contact details needs to be factored in.
We’ve overseen numerous office, business and commercial moves and have compiled our top tips to consider before moving premises:
Understand the jargon: don’t overlook the importance of understanding the legal terms used in leases and terms and conditions. Remain up to date on the terms used so that there are no surprises.
Budget: plan a budget not only for the cost of the new premises and any new equipment needed but also for the cost of the removal process. Employ an experienced and reputable removal company to carry out the move for you. It’s worth allowing the experts to do it for you, to ensure that your office and business equipment is moved safely and efficiently to minimise the disruption to your business and allow you to return to work as quickly as possible.
Location, location, location: Business owners often seek out new premises due to a need for a change in location. A right location is a key requirement and can have a substantial effect on a business. It’s worth devising a list of priorities and defining what it is that you require from your premises.
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail: Plan a timeline for the various stages of the process of relocating. Don’t underestimate how long an office can take in the planning. Plan as far ahead as possible. Familiarise yourself with the layout of the new office and devise a layout of where you’ll want the furniture etc to go.
