Many people argue that relocating an office is harder than relocating homes – they may very well be right! This is because there is much more at stake with an office move. An office is a place of work where you will find a lot of expensive machinery such as computer, MACs, photocopiers and other items. You will also find many pieces of paper – forms, quotes, declarations and so many other bits and bobs. Getting all of these together and packing them up in a way that makes it easy to unpack them to get back to business as soon as possible is not easy. Whilst you can still live in your house when you are preparing to move house, your business cannot run whilst you are preparing to move office. This is why it is crucial to complete an Acton office removal as soon as possible to avoid suffering from a loss in your business and profits. This article will show you exactly how to ensure that your removal is a success.
The first thing you need to do is plan, plan and plan! So many people ignore this crucial step because they think that it is unnecessary, boring and a total waste of time! However, there is a reason as to why removal companies advise that you plan. Planning allows you to prepare for every aspect of the removal. You are able to write down all of the things that need to be done, which is the perfect way of ensuring that they do get done (since we tend to forget things if they are not written down). You are also able to allocate time that can be spent doing each thing which is going to help with time management. Finally, you are also able to keep track of your removal which is crucial, especially to businessmen and women. Taking out half a day in order to plan can save your whole removal, so definitely go ahead and do it.
Hiring a removal company is also crucial. This is the second step towards success. When dealing with technical equipment and a mountain load of paper and stationary, it is best to let the professionals get on with it. They know how to handle all of your items which is great. From those delicate pieces of machinery to those well organised file, they will ensure that your items remain safe and organised which is crucial to get the business going again as soon as possible once the Acton removal has completed.
Always have all of the paperwork done before you choose to move. There is no point in hiring an Acton removal company if you have no new office place or any official paperwork. Remember, moving should not be based on guess work, so do not rush around whilst still ‘hoping’ to win the bid for the new office space etc.
Get everyone at the office involved! Even if you have professional men and women getting down to work, there is nothing stopping you or any other office employees from helping. Remember that many hands make light work and it may get you out of having to give all of your employees a paid holiday!
Finally, make sure that suppliers such as electricity, internet and phone suppliers are informed before you arrive at the new destination. You do not want to be waiting 2 weeks after moving for them to come and set up the broadband – remember, in the business world, time = money!
Follow these steps and your Acton removal will be quick, easy and successful.
