As a successful business, you will experience a number of exciting times during your expansion. Part of this will include moving to a bigger and better office space. Whether you are moving down the road or to the other side of the country, it is important to get everything right from the start. However, it isn’t as simple as packing up a few things and moving them from one place to another. Without meticulous planning, your business could experience unnecessary downtime.
Lack Of Planning
Due to the complexity of an office move, you should have a precise plan in place. Leaving it all to the last minute will push your stress levels through the roof and allow for costly mistakes to creep in. A good way to organise the office move is to have a checklist; this will ensure nothing gets missed or left behind.
Miscalculating The Complexity Of Your IT Infrastructure
If you’re a small business, you are more than likely to be relying on IT and when it isn’t running efficiently this can cause a huge number of problems. This aspect of the office move quite often goes under the radar. That’s why it is important to speak to an IT specialist before the lease has been agreed and ask them to check out the premises to see if it is suitable for your IT equipment. Good IT specialists will advise you on how to plan your new office layout. Furthermore, they will set up your internet connection and the servers before you move, cutting out any potential downtime.
Not Implementing A Timeline
Time is a precious and rare thing for business owners. By making a simple timeline and most importantly, sticking to it, your business will see the benefits. The timeline, together with a checklist, will minimise disruption on your business during the move. This will put you in a better place to organise your colleagues to prepare and help with the move.
