Office removals, also known as commercial removals, can be a daunting task. Moving an entire business to a new location requires careful planning, coordination, and execution to ensure that everything runs smoothly. The process can be particularly challenging, where businesses are often located in busy metropolitan areas with limited space and tight deadlines. To help with the transition, we have listed a few things to consider before the big day.
Are utilities already running in the new office space?
Are your data/internet/communications services fast, reliable, and competitively priced? Ask existing providers about any downtime that may be experienced during a move.
Consider the cost of updating or republishing any marketing materials.
What are the obligations of your current lease? Most landlords require between 3 to 6 months’ notice to terminate a lease.
Standard phone providers may need up to 3 months’ notice to relocate phone service. Contact your provider early to eliminate downtime.
Assess any new location for availability and position of power outlets. Ensure there is a sufficient supply to handle power requirements for your business.
Determine any new cabling requirements for PCs, desk phones, conference PODs, printers, services, wireless access points, digital signage, and TVs.
Officially brief all staff and business employees. Include the scheduled move date, any requirements, and any support contacts.
Create an inventory of all items that need to be moved.
Have mail/postage redirected to the new office address from move day.
Officially notify all clients, contractors and associates of the move date and update them with the new business details.
