Keep calm and relocate your offices with ease
1. Don’t fail to plan
As the saying goes, “Failing to plan is planning to fail”. Plan accordingly for your upcoming move. Create a checklist, set a timeline and budget, which can be checked before, during and after your move. This should include a schedule that clearly designates when particular tasks are to be completed and by whom. This will guide you and keep the ball rolling as it should. If you have an idea of how exactly you would like to proceed, it makes the whole process smoother and more efficient.
2. Keep everyone in the loop
The decision to move was undoubtedly made high up the hierarchy; however, everyone should be informed once it is set in stone. Once everyone is aware of what their job is, everyone can pull and push in the same direction.
‘Everyone’ also includes your clients – they are important and rely on your service, so keeping them in the loop will save them any frustration and disappointment. Take the time to inform them and update your company material accordingly.
This will help streamline the moving process and ensure a hassle-free move for you and everyone involved.
3. Inspect the premises
This may seem obvious but knowing the layout and dimensions of the premises-to-be will assist you in ensuring that equipment and furniture is placed accordingly. The benefit of foresight is not to be underestimated.
4. Put someone in charge
Although everyone is on board and aware of the move, it is important to assign an individual to oversee the entire process and keep everything on course. He/she will ensure all information flows from one point and all departments will report their progress to one central point.
5. Special items need special care… and packing
Not all assets are created equal and you will want to make sure that some items receive special care, particularly if they are expensive. Certain documents may be of a confidential nature and will require appropriate handling. Adlam Transport has a dedicated team specifically for the handling of such sensitive documentation.
We also offer packing services that will save you time and effort looking for misplaced items. At your request, we can move items into the office for you as well. Depending on the items being transported and the distance, you might require temporary or long-term storage facilities. This will allow you to purchase extra furniture and avoid any unnecessary delays in the process. Furthermore, it saves you having to make the move in one go.
6. Hire a team of experts
If you want a job done right don’t take any unnecessary risks, especially if it concerns the next vital steps in your company’s journey. Take particular care in making sure the moving company knows all your specific needs and requirements. It is crucial that the productivity and consistency of service that your business provides are not disrupted.
