There are many reasons for businesses to relocate their offices. You may be moving offices for more space or maybe it’s time for a new lease. Whatever your circumstances, moving to a new location is not something most business owners are keen to do, and who can blame them? Packing and moving hefty furniture / fixings is strenuous and costly by the time you rent vehicles and take time off work. These projects always take longer than anticipated and meanwhile you build a bank of unhappy customers. Thats why you need to think about every step along the way – because you will not want to do it twice in short succession!
Don’t get distracted
Deciding on new premises is the most important thing that you need to consider. After all, you need to make sure that the new space can accommodate your equipment, furniture, accessories, and ensure there is enough parking space for employees. It is vital that you analyse these things carefully…
You would want the moving day to go as smoothly as possible, so create a full inventory of the things that you need to move and cancel all meetings for a few days, maybe even a week. It is better to allow for more time and not need it than working under stress on an unrealistic timeline. Planning ahead will also mean less likelihood of accidents and incidents.
When should you make use of storage?
- If you are downsizing your business or simply don’t have a much space available at the new premises, a business storage unit will take all that stress away.
- Storage units are a great way to free up space and keep belongings safe, clean and damage free.
- Storage units are a fantastic way to keep seldom used items away from the office. Some examples are annual conference equipment, seasonal goods, certificates, files and old equipment.
