How To Relocate Your Office With Minimal Stress and Headaches
Relocating your business office can be a very stressful experience for most people. However if you are properly prepared and have planned accordingly you can reduce the stress and headaches significantly.
Some of the things you need to take into consideration;
Where are you moving to and does this location require a full fit out or is it already in the office configuration you want ready for you to move straight in?
If the fit out suits your requirements have you confirmed whether data points and telephone points are located where you want desks to go?
If its a blank canvas that you have customised to your requirements and have you engaged a project manager to take care of organising all the required trades to complete the work on time and on budget?
Have you confirmed that the required services for internet and telephone are in place in your new office location or is it going to cost you significant capital and operational expenditure to get them in place and keep them in place?
So by now your stress levels are probably through the roof after reading and thinking about the above points. I don't blame you moving whether it be an office or a home is never a fun experience.
So what can you do to minimise the stress and headaches?

They will be required to advise on certain parts of the project early on but most of their involvement comes later.
