New Office Space Requirements
How much office space do you need when you move? What are the important factors you will need in the new office (facilities, location, parking etc.).
Realistic Business Relocation Budget
Do you know how much your business move is going to cost you? The Moving Office Budget Planner lists all the cost items you need to consider - and you then need to phone around and start getting estimates in order to put a realistic budget together.
Clear Business Relocation Timeline
When do you need to be out of your office by? When do you need to serve notice? Determine all your key dates that will "drive" your business move and set up a timeline of events of when things need to be done by.
Business Relocation Team
A business move needs to be a team effort, comprising both internal and external professionals. Find out who need to be on the team to make your business relocation a success.
The relocation of company personnel is one of the major issues that need to be addressed. How (and when) are they going to be informed.
