If your new business is going great and you are looking to relocate to a larger office space, this article was written with you in mind, as we offer a few tips to ensure that the relocation goes smoothly.
- Hire a professional removalist – The best office removalist Melbourne has to offer would handle the entire project, leaving you and your staff free to do what you do best, manage your business. An established commercial removal company have the know-how and the resources to complete the operation and you can start a new chapter in your company’s history.
- Do a full inventory – This should probably be 3-4 lists, with office equipment/furniture, exterior assets, IT hardware and stock. You need to know exactly what is included in the move and what is to be disposed of or put up for auction. The removalist will want a full inventory and this is a good time to carry out a complete listing and classification; you can streamline your operation by removing things you don’t really need.
- Onsite utilities – It is essential to have all utilities connected up; send in a team of cleaners a few days prior to the move and have them lay down plastic to cover the carpet tiles, in preparation for the equipment and furniture arrival. Of course, a lot depends on the size of your operation, a small office with a dozen people cannot compare with 300 employees in a single facility. A scaled solution ensures a smooth project completion.
- Chronology – It is important to figure out what needs to arrive first; main furniture items and telecommunications should be in the initial vehicles. Once the furniture is in place, then office equipment and IT hardware can be placed and the network established and connected to the cloud. Of course, the flooring is the very first thing and that can be done a few days prior to the relocation date. If you are planning to have artificial flowers, they should be the last thing on the list. Contact the vendor and they will get to work when you are ready.
Leaving everything to the commercial removal specialist is the smart way to relocate a business, for an all-inclusive price, the operation is handled by a team of professionals.
