Office Relocation Planning - getting best value
Office Relocation Planning
Value for money should always be at the forefront of any office relocation project, but ensure you go about it the right way by not cutting corners.
With the right office relocation planning, moving office budgeting and management an office move can enable businesses to grow their client base, raise their corporate profile, improve operational efficiency, retain & attract staff and give that all important "right first impression" to clients.
Value for money needs to be at the forefront of every business decision - and this is certainly true when it comes to moving office.
The end game for most companies moving office will be to end up in the
- Right office property
- On the right terms
- With the right deal
- With the right office design and layout
- With the right office furniture in the right places
- With all IT and Phone systems relocated seemlessly
- With all office equipment and possessions having been moved safely and with everything working on that first morning in the new office
And all this having happened on time, to budget and with the minimum hassle and disruption to the business. Easy when you say it quickly!
For this to happen there needs to be a relentless focus on office relocation planning and preparation - and a strong commitment to engage the expertise of external professional advisors to help with each key stage of the office move. However, there is often reluctance for businesses moving office to seek professional advice.
For anyone reading this article who is thinking of not using professional help for the key stages of their office relocation - we would strongly urge you to please think again. There are, sadly, all too many examples where companies have paid the penalty (and price!) for trying to go it alone - and this is usually driven by a lack of experience or a desire to "save money".
Whilst the sentiment of trying to achieve best value is understandable the result is often the opposite. Best practice and experience clearly shows that companies that don't engage external professional expertise waste unnecessary time and money. Conversely, businesses that do work with office relocation professionals (Tenant Representative Brokers, Commercial Real Estate Attorneys, Office Design Companies, IT & Telecoms and Office Moving Companies) avoid mistakes, save time and get better value for their money.
And, at end of it all, they're always glad they got Help Moving Office.
