Office removals are a completely different beast to a regular house removal. Your WC1 office removal should be something that accurately represents your business. It should be an efficient and cost effective process that should impact on your business as little as possible whilst it is happening. They key to achieving this is plenty of accurate forward planning. Instead of jumping head long into a process, which is easy to do in certain circumstances (excitement or the need to quickly downscale/ reduce operating costs), making sure you are meticulous in your planning is the way to ensure that your WC1 commercial removal goes as well as can be expected, in both a financial and practical sense. Below are a few tips to consider that will help you achieve this goal.
Firstly, you may want to consider hiring a professional consultant to assist you in the move. Though hiring another employee, even on a temporary basis, can be a costly move – bringing in someone who works day in day out in the relocation industry could well prove to be a wise and frugal move. The fact is that whilst you may look at your business and know it better than anyone else, the external factors such as hiring WC1 office space, the actual removal, the various safety checks and all other manner of things may well be somewhat foreign to you. If you and a professional can work hand in hand, then together you will be able to cater to your specific needs during the move. These people will have experience that will be invaluable, as any mistake or delay can end up costing your business a lot of money.
It is also worth noting that this consultant will have connections in other areas of the moving process. This could be an insight into cheap office space for you to move in to if that has not already been decided on, but also removal men who may even be specific to your industry and its needs. Furthermore, hiring some help is never a sign of weakness – it simply allows you to focus on the day to day running of your company. It could also prove to be a psychologically advantageous move. If you are downscaling your office space your employees are likely to be low on morale and perhaps even scared for their jobs’ safety. Regardless of whether they have a reason to be worried, the hiring of another employee to help you with the move not only makes financial sense, but also shows that your business is healthy enough to afford to hire someone. This could in turn reassure certain employees, resulting in increased efficiency in their performance.
Furthermore, you may want to consider hiring storage for your office move. An office move isn’t the same as packing up the back of a car and hopping off to your new place. An office move needs to be a longer and more thought out process and storing some of your items so that you can achieve what you need to in smaller steps. Storage lockers are available in all sorts of sizes so it is likely that a lot of your office decor can be stored in one locker. Lockers nowadays are a very secure environment with many efforts taken to make sure your possessions are not to be interacted with unless you want them to. This can be through security cameras, patrols and individual key cards. This is an easy way to take your office move at your own, appropriate pace, and researching into storage solutions may well be the key to success.
