Planning Internal Moves: what you need to know
We’re specialists in corporate moves. We understand that internal office moves or “office churn” can be a complex and challenging process that needs careful management. There’s so many things to consider: technology, desk changes, lighting, storage— all these things can affect your employees’ productivity and morale. So, before you embark on your next project, here’s my top three tips:
1. Plan and communicate early
It’s important to start planning your internal office move as early as possible. This will give you time to think about your needs, identify and overcome potential issues, and to communicate the plan to your employees. Make sure to include everyone involved in the planning process and ensure that you clearly communicate the timeline and expectations, as well as any changes that will impact your team.
2. Minimise disruption
Internal office moves can be disruptive to your team, so it’s important to take steps to minimise this. Consider using temporary workspaces or scheduling the move outside of regular business hours to reduce the potential impact on productivity. Make sure you also provide clear instructions to employees on how to pack and label their belongings. This will streamline the moving process and reduce hassle down the line.
3. Hire a professional
I know, but there are many benefits to working with someone who knows what they’re doing! We have the expertise, experience, and tools to manage the process efficiently and effectively, minimising the risk of damage to your equipment. We can also help you save time and resources, allowing your business to continue to operate smoothly throughout the move.
If you do choose to hire professionals, make sure you seek a removal partner with a proven track record of success, who will prioritise communication throughout the process. Or, if you decide to manage the move yourself, remember that planning and communication are key.
Whatever your corporate removal needs, following these three tips will help you ensure a seamless transition to your brand-new working space.
