|Description:||Changing office locations is a multi-stage procedure that demands certain arrangements. Below, we have listed some common steps that every business owner has to go through.
Draw up a timeline
Decide on a to-do list and time frames. Discuss all the details with people involved in moving. Remember that you might need 3 months at the very least to prepare a small office to the transition and half a year at minimum to prepare a larger one.
Think over the new location
One of the most essential steps is probably collecting details on the new location. Find out more about the building capacities, main components, interior and exterior so that you can design the new office in accordance with your needs. You might need to involve electrical technicians, woodworkers, decorators and/or other workers to finish reconditioning.
Gather a team for moving
Decide on some key people who can assist you in organizing the office move. Or assign workers from every department so that they make sure everybody packs their working stuff. Then, ask your assistants to make the list of necessary tasks that should be finished weeks before moving.
Meet with the working team regularly
Make provision for meetings with your employees on a regular basis in the timeline. You have to inform everybody on the smallest changes in the schedule, collect workers’ feedback, worries and wishes.
Draw up a budget
If you have a limited budget, it is better to decide on your maximum expenses in advance. Thus, it would be easier to choose a moving company, select the new location, create the design for the new office and so on.
Hire the moving provider
This is one more essential task. The vast majority of the time, you can not perform the business moving by your own. You are in need of professionals who are specialized in office movers. Choosing the office movers, check their licenses, insurance, certificates and the history of complaints if there are any. Trust only experienced and responsible companies.
Contact your customers, suppliers and business associates
Make sure workers assigned for this task have warned everybody (including your clients, suppliers and business partners) you are changing the location. In this way, you may prevent your customers from changing the service provider.
It is better to assign just one employee for this task. Thus, there would be no mess in calls and e-mails.
