Planning an office move can be complicated, but with a reputable office removals contractor and a formidable in-house moving team, you're on the right track. As a business-owner you might be too bogged down in meetings, travel and negotiations to spend too much time on certain tasks that relate to your move. However, if you know your employees well, you can set up a competent team to handle every aspect of the move on your behalf.
Choosing an Office Move Team Leader
Appoint one of the senior managers or even a director as the team leader for Project Move. Moving an office is a great responsibility, especially for the person in charge, so make sure he or she has the free time available to handle this project. The team leader should also have the authority to make decisions on behalf of the company and be a good communicator, organiser and budget manager.
Appointing the Property Team
The property team, consisting of a commercial property agent and a solicitor will usually be contracted from outside of the office. The agent should be a reputable agent who is able to negotiate favorable financial terms for the new property on your behalf. The solicitor should be consulted before you sign any contracts that might expose you to liabilities.
A well-appointed and well-designed office is the cornerstone of a productive workforce and a favorable reputation with suppliers and clients who visit it. Find a company who understands your requirements and can deliver a suitable office environment according to your budget.
Hiring the Office Removals Company
