Things To Consider Before Moving Into A New Office Space (tanks)
Moving into new business premises is incredibly exciting, yet it is a stressful thing to do. Whilst it is great to be upscaling your business, you need to consider all of the options to make sure you're making the best possible decision for you. From location to price, the more you plan in advance the better.
With that in mind, here are 5 things you need to consider before a move:
- What Is Your Overall Budget?
When you first start to consider moving to new office space, you need to work out what your overall budget is for the whole process. This means that although you need to think about what your monthly budget for rent is, you also need to consider the removal costs, the costs of downtime and the cost of the deposit to move. Once you've worked out these factors, you'll be able to decide whether or not it is financially viable at this time. For tips and tricks on setting a removal budget, you can visit this guide here.
- Where Do You Want It To Be Located?
Once you've worked out what your budget is, you can start to think about where you want to be located. Whilst for some being in the heart of the city is important, others prefer the cost of living just outside of all the action. if you need good transport links, you need to consider being somewhere that has good access to main roads and key public transport points.
- Is It Easy For Staff To Access And Is There Enough Parking?
Once you've picked a location you need to think about the premises itself. Is it easy to get to? Is there enough parking for staff? Is it close to your employee's current homes? How long will it take them to get there? If all of these things have a simple reply, you've probably picked a great location.

- Is It Safe For You And Your Staff?
Another important aspect to look at is whether or not the building is safe for your staff. This means looking at the security measures, taking a look at tank inspections and ensuring that everything is in good working order before you move in.
- What Do You Need To Do To Prepare In Advance?
Before your move you need to ensure that you have everything prepared in advance. This means changing your bills, packing all of your assets and arranging who will be helping you with the move. The best option, of course, is hiring a delivery team.
Whilst it may seem as though it’s unnecessary organising all of this well in advance, taking the time to put solid plans into place will ensure that your moving day runs smoothly and without complications.
