You and your employees put in at least forty hours every week in your office, so it should be a place that is functional and amiable. Your entire business is contingent upon what happens within those walls. Keeping that at the front of your mind, you might be pondering an office relocation. There are a few rationales to do so:
- You have grown out of your current office in El Paso. Your employees need a little area! As you expand and hire more employees, you need more office space to house them. (No one would like to share a desk or go to the break room only to figure out there is no break room.)
- You want your warehouse and office to be close together. If you have a warehouse of inventory, it could be more productive to have your office closeby so you do not have to have such a drive from one to the other.
- You want to up your visibility. Some businesses profit when potential buyers can see your sign every day and have easy access to your front door. If this description fits you, it's time to get out of that sixth floor office or hidden alley office and get into the mainstream.
- A different locale makes more sense. Maybe your present spot was ideal for starting your business, but now it is time to upgrade to a venue that is more available for your clients, has more parking, or is simply more inviting.
- You need room for a new department. An office relocation could be as obvious as moving one group of employees into a new workspace in the same building or complex.
In reality, no matter how simple the relocation might seem, there is a lot to contemplate, which is why it is a good idea to employ a professional moving company that can handle your office move from start to finish.
- Disassembling and Reassembling Furniture: There are not very many office desks that will go through a door as a single piece (and really, would you want to carry it even if it can?). Disassembling furniture and reassembling it can be time-consuming and delicate: you have to watch out to lose a single screw! You and your employees can find a better use of your time.
- Moving Records and Files: You have a system, and you need to be able to pick up where you ended when you're in your new office. Before you hire a moving company, make sure they are able to maintain the organization and safeguarding the privacy of the people whose files are being relocated.
- Moving IT Systems: A couple laptops is one thing; an entire network of computers, printers and servers is another. Additionally, even with a single tablet, you want to make sure it is correctly packaged and padded to avoid issues in transit. When you get to your new office, you want to know your system can be reinstalled handily and, of course, correctly.
- Moving Heavy Equipment: Depending upon your business, you may have big, oddly shaped pieces of expensive equipment that need to make the move, too. How are you thinking about moving that thing? How will you protect it? That is what pros can help you with.
- Keeping to a Timeline: During the time your office is being relocated, it is hard to keep up with work, which is why it is imperative for an office relocation to happen quickly.
