Why Moving Office Is So Completely Different To Moving House

If you are a business owner considering an office relocation, you might think that you have a head start because you have also moved house recently. Your thought process could be that because you planned your house move successfully, that moving your business is going to be every bit as straightforward.

The fact is it could be, and if you did all the right things relating to your house move, such as planning everything thoroughly, hiring professional removalists, using proper packaging materials, and so on, your office move should go well. However, you also need to appreciate that there are significant differences between moving your family’s belongings to a new home and moving your business to a new location. Here are some examples.

The Amount Of Additional Planning Required Is Significant

Whilst not meaning to downplay the importance of planning a house move properly, it stands to reason that the amount of planning required for a business to move is going to be higher. It also needs to start much sooner, often 6 months in advance, and the logistics of uprooting an entire business and moving it to new premises means several people will be involved in those plans.

You Will Need Removalists Who Are Specialists In Office Moves

Some removalists specialise in house moves, and they are essential to a successful residential move. However, when it comes to moving a  business from one location to another, and the complexities that come with that, it is essential that the removalists you hire for a business relocation are experts. They will have experience in lifting heavy items, computer equipment and office furniture, plus know exactly what packing materials to use.
