If you’re planning an office relocation or are thinking about possibly transitioning your business to a new location sometime in the future, you’re likely not yet considering the amount of work such a decision will entail. Many business owners and teams believe they can manage an office transition internally. Unfortunately, that’s usually not the case. Companies that offer office relocation services pick up the slack in areas a normal business is not familiar with. Here’s a breakdown.
Moving a business is not really the same thing as moving a home. There is a lot more involved than just hiring a company with a truck and some boxes and hitting the road. It takes a great deal of planning and strategy in order to execute the business transition on time and on budget with little to no downtime for your team.
That’s where you project manager will come in. Your Relocation Strategies project manager will begin by assessing the scope and timeframe of the move in order to properly navigate each and every step of the process. This will include a communication plan so all employees and internal team members can be prepared for the transition. But it doesn’t end there. Your project manager will handle everything down to floor plans and vendor selection assistance. Essentially, your project manager is the main liaison between your company and every other moving piece in the puzzle – and they are completely beholden to you and the success of your move.
Something you learn after being in this industry awhile is that every project, big or small, should have a well-devised plan to ensure staff and leadership experience a smooth and organized moving experience.
Office relocation services include a move strategy. The team at Relocation Strategies plan, implement, and execute every relocation project with care, keeping budget and timelines in mind at every step. Depending on the type of company, strategy layouts can include any of the following:
- Move budget assessment
- Project schedule and coordination
- Move management
- On-site project management
- Procurement of new or used modular workstations
- Procurement of used or new office furnishings
- Maintaining facility productivity
- RFP/RFQ all vendors
- Implementation of all audio & visual components
- Telecommunications & IT infrastructure
