There are several reasons for office relocation, for example, lease expiration, company size, and location flow. Company relocation seems simple, but there are a lot of details that need to be considered.
Once a suitable location has been identified, the task of finding the right office space begins. The age of the building, rent fee, facilities, and layout of the office can be critical.
Cube Self Storage has put together a relocation checklist for you.
1. Inspection and layout planning
Once the new office has been found, the first thing you should do is check the electricity, water, and Internet connections in your new office can meet your requirements. If the office layout and decoration need to be renovated, it is better to do it before moving in. It is to avoid disruption.
2. Organize and classify documents and furniture
During the relocation, sorting out the documents is the most vexing work. It is a good opportunity to separate documents for different departments and purposes and scrap useless documents and letters for recycling. In addition, we must also consider whether the existing furniture will fit the new office. If the new location can’t accommodate all the furniture, then you have to decide whether to store them, sell them second-hand or scrap them?
3. Inform your customers
The biggest fear during company relocation is the losing contact with existing customers. Notifying customers in advance by email or verbally, and making offers to existing customers during this period, is a good way to build good relationships with existing customers and keep them loyal.
4. Find a good relocation company
Relocation needs a moving company, and choosing a good moving partner can help to save half the effort! Choosing a professional relocation company with accountability, punctuality, and know-how to protect furniture allied with a good pricing system, are all factors that must be taken into consideration.

2. IT settings
Your IT setup can be critical to getting your company back up and running, ensure that WiFi, printers, company servers, computer systems, etc. are secure and working properly to protect company confidentiality and allows employees to work in a better environment.
