Office relocation – it doesn’t have to be a marathon Created on 01/04/2013 17:08:00
With Susi Whitehill, Head of our Customer Service Delivery Team about to run The London Marathon in aid of the British Heart Foundation, we have put together some office relocation tips to get you past the finishing line in style.
The prospect of moving offices may seems like a marathon, but follow this advice and it can be a walk in the park:
Prepare well in advance
The worst thing you can do is put off the move until the last minute. No one can expect to run a marathon with a day or two’s warning, and you shouldn’t try to cram all the preparations for your relocation into a couple of hours. Make a schedule and stick to it.
Work as a team
Although some people choose to run a marathon alone, many run with friends or at least have a network of people cheering them on from the sidelines. In much the same way, getting your team onside will be key to the success of your office relocation. Make sure they know exactly what is happening and when. Forearmed is forewarned!
Get the right gear
No one would choose to run a marathon without the appropriate clothing and footwear (apart from the super brave in their fancy dress, that is). Likewise, it is important to ensure you have the right equipment for the office move. Perhaps you need to order boxes and parcel tape en masse, or perhaps it would be easier to hire an office relocation specialist to do the hard work for you.
Keep your eye on the finish line
There may be times when you feel like you’ve hit a wall, but think how relieved you will be when everything is settled into your new office space. Hopefully you are moving to a bigger and better-equipped location, so it’ll be all downhill once you’re through the doors.
