What To Think About When Considering An Office Move
There are many occasions in the lifespan of any business when it becomes necessary to move offices. That might be because you are expanding your business to a second location, or downsizing it. Or it might be because you just want to ensure you are actually in the right location for your business.
Whatever the reason, there are always lots of things that you need to consider when you are thinking about moving offices. In this blog, we will take you through some of the most important of these - and as you will see, it's about much more than just remembering those boxes of paper.
Disassembling & Reassembling Furniture
Chances are you don't want to have to buy all new furniture, so that means you are going to want to transport your existing items as best as you can. But it is not simply a case of carrying it from one place to another. In fact, you will need to first disassemble your furniture, so that you can much more readily transfer it to the appropriate location, and then you'll need to reassemble it in the right place, in the right part of the office. All of that takes time, and it's something you might want to find help for.
IT Network Reconfiguration
If you are not careful, the simple act of moving your IT network can cause serious problems for your business. You could end up losing data, losing the security of the system that your customers rely on to keep their data safe, and putting your business at risk of further cyber trouble. You need to properly take it apart and professionally reconfigure it again at the other end to avoid these issues, and to ensure you still have the same complete IT system after you have moved offices.
Disposing Of Old Items
There will also be a huge number of items that you don't want to take with you, and you would rather just get rid of. But do you know how to actually dispose of everything in the most sensible, environmentally-friendly and simplest way possible? You might find that it's best to get some help with the disposal of filing cabinets, papers, chairs, tables and so on. And just how on earth do you dispose of the break room pinball machine, or a vending machine? You'll likely need some help on that front too.
As you can see, there are a lot of things to think about, and hiring professional commercial movers may be the best move you make. Having a dedicated project manager to make sure all aspects of your move are handled quickly and efficiently will make your life a lot simpler and make your move as stress-free as possible.
