A business move is a perfect way to start afresh, and often signals the growth or new strategy of a company. In order to carry out a successful office relocation, there are 5 tips that UK businesses can to keep in mind and prepare beforehand to minimise disruption and help the company get back to business as soon as possible.
1. Study the location carefully
It goes without saying that the location of a company is among one of the most important factors affecting the growth of the business. A guide on how to choose the right business property and the right location can be found here.
During the office move, your company may experience a decrease in money flow due to no trading. You must have a clear and specific plan on how much the relocation will cost, including expenses such as designer’s fees or solicitor’s fees. There may be additional building costs, or installation of a network, telephone, or security system to pay for on top of the price of new furniture and extra accessories.
3. Office furniture and equipment
Can you reuse the office equipment in the new premise, or have they become outdated or need to be replaced to suit the new location? Whatever the decision, it’s important to safely store them in a cool, dry and secure place.
