Considerations for a Successful Office Removal

Posted on 19th June 2015

When relocating your office, there are various things to take into account that could make the whole process quicker and easier. Though not completely dissimilar to moving house, there are even more factors and considerations to take into account when planning a commercial or office move. In this month’s article, we share our top 5 tips for moving office and how to keep it quick and hassle-free.


When planning any office or commercial removals, it is vital to set out a clear set of objectives that you hope to achieve from the move prior to the process itself. Reasons for moving could include anything from the expiry of your lease, planned expansion or downsizing, or even reduction in overheads.

With these in mind, map out exactly what you want to achieve from the moving process, and therefore the type of premises you need to think about moving to. When doing this, consider also the long and short term needs of your company as this can help make the process a lot clearer and easier.

Plan ahead

As with any relocation, it is vital that you plan ahead, allowing yourself a hassle-free and slick process. If you leave everything involved in the move to the last minute, you may be left with too much on your plate, causing you and everyone else in your business unnecessary stress. Questions you could consider include:

  • What location would you benefit from moving to?
  • What features should the new office have?
  • What size space do you need?
  • What type and length of lease do you require?
  • What is your budget?


As with any move, it is important to consider what budget is available to you. Relocating your office or commercial premises is a serious monetary consideration, particularly when moving to a larger premises, which is why your budget must be laid out clearly to determine what options are available to you.
