Planning an office move or downsizing your current office space? It is important to plan ahead of time when moving an office in order to execute a smooth relocation. Check out our quick list of what you need to consider before planning your upcoming office move!

Why are you Moving?

First, it is important to establish the reason for moving or downsizing your current office space. Have most of your employees transitioned to working from home? Are you trying to find a building with lower rental costs? Is your business expanding? Whatever your reason may be, it is important to understand what your needs are as a business before starting your search for a new location.

What is your Budget?

Budget is key when planning any commercial move. Know your relocation budget to prevent overspending. This will allow you to determine which services fit both your budget and your needs for moving day.

When is your Move Date?

The timing of your move needs to work for both the business and its employees. Do some research on the busiest times of the year for office moves and plan accordingly. Determine which date works best for your move. Remember, your business still needs to function during the move process, so picking a date is a very important factor during the move process.

Where are you Moving to?

Before the move process can even begin, it is important to establish a destination. Find an office space that works best for your business and its budget. Take your time to look at multiple properties that meet your criteria. Hire a commercial real estate professional to help you search, tour, and apply for a commercial lease on a building. Establishing your destination ahead of time will also help you during the planning process when it is time to configure your space.

Who is Moving you?

Now that you have established your reason for moving, a budget, a date, and a destination, it is time to select a professional commercial moving company to assist you on move day. We recommend you receive at least 3 quotes from reputable local companies. Compare these quotes, ask important questions, and select your mover as soon as possible to ensure your move date is available.
