Planning an Office Move? - Don't make this mistake!
Lack of Planning & Preparation
is one of the most common mistakes that companies make when planning an office move.
When it comes to organizing an office move, if you fail to prepare you may well be preparing to fail. And because companies only move office once every 5 years (on average) they require a specialist and experienced team to ensure they run effectively and efficiently as possible.
Taking any kind of short cuts (whether cost of time related) at the start of this kind of relocation project are often dwarfed by delay, downtime and costly consequences before the end.
Best practice dictates that companies who are thinking of an office move, should review their options 9-18 months prior to their current office lease expiry - this can be longer for larger and more complex office relocations.
Here are some practical tips to plan, prepare & organize your office move correctly:
- Establish a clear set of objectives and strategies
- Assign someone in your organization who is responsible for coordinating the office move
- Hire professionals to carry out and advise on key stages of your office move
- Use the Office Move Checklist to guide you through the planning and preparation
- Prepare an Office Relocation Timeline and Office Moving Cost Appraisal of your office move
- Work closely with a good, local Office Moving Company to plan out the logistics of your office move and get your moving day booked well in advance
Finally, remember the old P6 adage: Prior Planning & Preparation Prevents a Poor Performance!
