The relocation timeline & checklist for small business moves

15 August 2018

There’s really no shortage of things to consider when relocating a small business. Add any refurbishment and dilapidation works into the mix and it’s a one way street to a stress-induced headache, but it doesn’t need to be that way. Stick to this guide and reduce that stress and within 6 months, you’ll be sat at your new desk, coffee in hand, ready to get cracking on in your new workspace.

In the beginning, the thought of moving staff, equipment, and furniture can be overwhelming – but it really needn’t be. The team at Premier Workplace Services have compiled a list of critical things to start thinking about at the early stages of your project:

  1. What do you want from your move?
  2. How much should you spend?
  3. Who’s going to execute the move?
  4. Which workplace services providers are right for your move?
  5. Who’s taking care of the finer details?
  6. What will you do with your IT equipment and furniture?

Ideally you would give yourself a good four to six weeks to review these points in detail, as they are all crucial parts to completing a seamless move. Remember, some contractors (like Premier) may be able to offer you a complete package of services, including sustainable clearances, move management, space planning, refurbishments, relocations and furniture refurbishment.

After you’ve explored your needs, you can then start to begin to think about how much you want to spend and which workplace change service provider is right. Then, it’s time to start thinking about the details and start planning the supporting logistics and communications. Fortunately, there’s plenty of help at hand: Premier can help you through the more painstaking elements of your move – and we’ve put together this complete guide & timeline to help.
