What To Consider When Relocating A Company Office

Moving into a new office is an exciting time for any company, but for those managing the entire ordeal, it can be incredibly stressful. Whilst it is unlikely that you will be tasked with several office relocations in your career, it is crucial to understand the steps required for a successful company office relocation, from setting the budget to seeking interior solution. Here, we’re taking a look at what should be considered when relocating a company office to ensure a seamless move.

Budget

When moving from one office to another, the costs can quickly add up. Budgets can be easily overshot due to a number of factors including delays, oversights and unexpected issues. Nevertheless, sticking to a budget can be equally as difficult as setting one, since hidden costs can appear from things that may have not even been considered. The cost of dilapidations, specialist equipment that requires expert handling and timing limitations are often overlooked when it comes to relocating a company office – this only highlights the importance of identifying the total cost of office relocation prior to planning the big move.

Interior Solutions & Office Design

When relocating a company office, it is paramount to maximise your office space. This is especially important for companies that are growing quickly or are relocating to a new, smaller location. Whilst space planning can take a considerable amount of time, it will help reduce stress and workload in the future. Relocating a company office is rarely a frequent occurrence, and so companies must be confident that they will be getting the most out of moving to a new location, regardless of how much planning is required.

Office Furniture

When it comes to office furniture, it certainly isn’t unreasonable to consider your options.  Whilst some companies choose to take their current office furniture with them to their new location, others decide to replace it with something entirely new.

As well as considering whether to buy new office furniture, companies will also need to consider how they plan to relocate their electrical equipment. Just like transporting your office furniture, businesses can choose whether they will take the opportunity to upgrade their IT kit during the moving process. Desktops, data centres, severs, telephones and connections are just a handful of considerations that must be taken into account when relocating a company office.
