Getting the Most Out of Your Move with Professional Office Relocation Services!
Professional office relocation services are the perfect remedy for a moving-related migraine. While some look forward to new premises, no one really looks forward to the mammoth task of moving there. The need to move to new premises is sometimes unavoidable, and when this time comes, it is essential to have an office-moving strategy that protects the business from potential moving-related misfortune. If you want to ensure that your office relocation goes smoothly, there are a few things that you can do. Here are some them.
Get Planning… in Advance
Planning is one of the key ingredients to a successful move. It is important to start putting together a plan at least four to six months ahead of time. With this type of lead time, you will be able to carefully plan and fully prepare for anything that might crop up during the move. It is also reasonable time to give your staff members time to prepare for the move, both mentally and physically. At Elliott Afrovan, we can visit your business premises and help you to compile a strategic moving plan that involves your staff members too. Make sure that all your staff know exactly what they have to do before the day. If each staff member has a task, no one will feel “spare” and the entire process will run smoothly.
Book Early to Avoid Disappointment
If you know which date you need to move, book the removals company as soon as possible for that date. The earlier you book, the better the chance is that you will get a good deal too. Also, moving companies book up quickly certain times of year and the last thing you want is to be stranded on the day you have to move. Of course, you must make sure that you request a detailed quotation of all the services that will be provided.
Get Rid of the Clutter
Most businesses gather unnecessary things along the way. Perhaps you have old printers and equipment that are obsolete or maybe there is old stock that will never be sold. The time to get rid of excess and clutter is now. There is no point in being charged to move items that serve no purpose. Scour filing cabinets, storerooms and offices to make sure that everything that will be moved is considered an essential business item. Office relocation services are typically quoted on the number of items to be moved, so this can save you money.
You cannot leave the precautions until the last minute. You will find yourself scrambling to make a plan and items might get damaged in the process. Take your IT equipment for instance. These items must be carefully packaged and prepared and when being handled, the correct technique must be used. Make sure that you advise your removal company of the sensitive IT equipment that must be moved so that they can prepare for it. They will bring the right moving experts and materials to ensure that the moving of these items goes smoothly.
Put Your Service Providers in Touch
After the goods are moved, the real work begins – the unpacking and setting up. This can be a really stressful time for you and your staff. It can be avoided though. When you hire office-relocation services, we strongly recommend that you opt for an all-inclusive service. This means that your office will be packed up for you, your goods moved, and then placed exactly where you want them at the new premises. Put your moving company in touch with your space-planning team and you stand to save a lot of time and frustration.
