When you own a business, there can be plenty of things to be thinking about and some big decisions to make. Hopefully, those big decisions are all about things that mean your business is expanding and growing. One of those things that you will need to negotiate and think about, is moving offices to a new location. You might move from working at home to working in an office, or go from one office to a larger one. While needs must, it can be a busy time for all involved. You will still need to operate the day to day business while a move is happening. So here are some tips and tricks to help an office move run as smoothly as possible.

Tips For Making Your Office Relocation As Smooth As Possible

Start Planning Early

The lucky thing with a relocate is that it is rarely something that will take you by surprise. You are likely to know just when you will need to make the move, as well as how long you will have to do so. So once you have chosen your new premises, you can put plans in place for the big move. Booking a moving company or a van to move everything across is good to be done as early as possible. You should also think about the costs involved so that you can account for them. There is no time like the present to get planning for it.

Don’t Forget IT

IT is going to be at the heart of most businesses. So you need to take extra care to make sure that all of that is moved over carefully. You might need to get some external hard drives or update a server to make sure that no data is lost. You will also want to recruit some specialist movers to make sure that your expensive IT equipment is moved over safely and carefully to avoid damage, as well as get it all setup right.

Organize Admin

There will be lots of small things to sort when it comes to moving an office. It might not take long to sort these kinds of thing, but from looking for a mail forwarding solution to getting a new broadband deal at the office can all take up plenty of your time. You will also need to make sure that all utilities from your old office have been dealt with, so that you can leave that office behind and not still be paying for the water or heating bill. It might take a day to get all of those things organized, but it will pay off to get it done as soon as you can.

Get It Looking Good

Moving office space is a great opportunity to have a good clean, both of your new office and your old office space. Whether you have regular cleaners that can do it for you, or you hire in a team to do a deep clean, it can be much needed in both places. Then when you move in, you are left with a blank canvas to start building your office.
