All successful office moves hinge on meeting key timeframes and deadlines which is why you must use a Moving Office Timetable to keep your office move on track. Any veteran of an office move will attest to the fact that the utilization of a comprehensive Office Relocation Timeline and an Office Move Checklist is the best strategy to ensure a smooth and stress free office relocation.
Help Moving Office have put together a free, comprehensive, interactive & intuitive Moving Office Timetable to keep your office move on track to ensure that nothing (and no-one!) gets left behind. It identifies the tasks needed for your office move and tells you when to do them.
Not having an Office Move Timeline increases the chance of your office move being disorganized, wasting time & money and making mistakes that could have been avoided. Some of the pitfalls that can result from not having a tight grip on your office move timings include:
Not being able to move office at all
Obvious as this may sound but the starting point for your office move must be you having a clear understanding of the office relocation process and timeframe required for you to give notice on your existing office space. The provisions for doing so will be laid out in the lease documentation and you will need to get advice from a specialist Commercial Real Estate Attorney on your exit strategy from your curent office. Ask them to look through your office lease documents to establish the required timeframe and process to serve notice. Paying more than you have to.As with so many things, the later you leave it the more it will cost. Two clear examples of this when it comes to moving offices area:
- The earlier you start the search for your new office space then the greater the chance you have of securing the best deal possible
- The earlier you book an office moving company the less you will usually pay.
With that knowledge it seems crazy to incur additional costs through not starting the office relocation process early enough.
Unnecessary business downtime
Any delay in moving into your new office runs the risk of causing the cardinal sin of business downtime. And if your staff aren't able to work then they aren't making any money. Even worse, a delay to your office move could mean your company needing to move into expensive (and unnecessary) temporary office accommodation whilst the issues get fixed.
Moving office last minute chaos
Leaving things to the last minute means you will end up rushing - and when you rush you make mistakes (or worse forget things). You can't be expected to know everything which is why so many companies use the Office Move Timetable to guide them through their office relocation.
Having established that achieving a successful office move is all about prior preparation and planning, it follows that the earlier you start the moving office process the greater the chance of achieving the smooth office move that your company expects. It really is impossible to plan too far ahead - so start the process early and make sure you use the tried and tested Office Move Planner.
