Is an Office Relocation in Austin on Your Agenda?

Office Relocation

You and your employees spend at least 40 hours a week in your office, so it has to be a place that is practical and amiable. Your whole livelihood is dependent upon what goes on within those walls. Keeping that at the front of your mind, you might be contemplating an office relocation. There are several rationales to do so:
  • You have gotten too big for your current office in Austin. Your employees need a little area! As you expand and hire more people, you want additional office space to house them. (Nobody wants to share a desk or go to the break room only to realize there is no break room.)
  • You want your warehouse and office to be close together. If you have a warehouse of inventory, it might be more productive to have your office very close so you don't have to make such a commute.
  • You want to up your visibility. Some businesses benefit when potential buyers can view your sign every day and gain easy access to your front door. If this sounds like you, it is time to get away from of that sixth floor office or hidden alley office and get into the limelight.
  • A new venue makes more sense. Maybe your current location was ideal for starting your business, but now it's time to move to a place that is more available for your clients, has more parking, or is simply more upscale.
  • You need space for a new department. An office relocation might be as obvious as moving one department of employees into a new area in the same building or complex.

Really, no matter how simple the relocation might seem, there is a lot to think about, which is why it is a good idea to find a professional moving company that can handle your office move from start to finish.

  • Disassembling and Reassembling Furniture: There are not very many office desks that will fit through a door without being taken apart (and seriously, would you want to carry it even if it could?). Taking apart furniture and reassembling it may be time-consuming and delicate: you have to take care not to lose a single screw! You and your employees can make better use of your time.
  • Moving Records and Files: You have your files organized, and you need to be able to commence where you ended when you're in your new office. Ahead of hiring a professional mover, double check that they're able to maintain the organization and safeguarding the privacy of the people whose files are being moved.
  • Moving IT Systems: A few computers is one thing; an entire network of computers, printers and servers is another. Beyond that, even with a single tablet, you want to double check that it is appropriately packaged and padded to avoid issues in transit. When you get to your new office, you want to rest assured that your system can be reinstalled smoothly and, of course, correctly.
  • Moving Heavy Equipment: Depending upon what business you are in, you may have big, oddly shaped pieces of expensive equipment that need to be relocated, too. How are you thinking about moving that thing? How will you secure it? That's what pros can help you with. 
  • Keeping to a Timeline: During the time your office is in transit, it's not easy to keep up with work, which is why it is imperative for an office relocation to happen seamlessly.
