Moving from one office location to another is not a decision that is taken lightly and it may be because business has taken an uptick and you need larger premises to be able to deal with the higher customer demand. It may also be the case that business is not as good as you would have hoped and so in order to be able to save money, you need to relocate your office to more affordable premises. Whatever the reasons, there are a number of things that you need to be aware of before you make any kind of office move.
When it comes to Melbourne office removals, the first thing that you need to put into place is to make sure that you are using the right kind of removal company that can get you to your final destination quickly and easily. This is not the time to be trying to cut corners and save yourself money, so make sure that you engage with a professional organisation that knows exactly what it’s doing. The following are just some other things that you need to be aware of before you make the move.
- Be sure to measure up – Don’t just assume that all of your office furniture and equipment is going to fit into its new space. Make sure you take the time to go to the new proposed office space at least 2 months in advance so that you can get out your measuring tape and see if your new office is fit for purpose.
- Figure out the security offered – You want to be able to keep your office secure as well as any expensive machinery and office equipment that you might have. Many business owners assume that security is included in the rental fee but in many cases, it isn’t. This will give you time to look for a security company.
- Tell everyone about your move – It’s hard to believe but many businesses forget to tell the most important people that they are actually moving and this list of people includes your customers and your suppliers. They definitely need a heads up so that they know where to send the stock that you need and they know where to come to shop.
The hope is that your office move will be a complete success and your business will hit the ground running at its new location.
