Is an Office Relocation in Atlanta on Your Agenda?

Office Relocation

You and your employees put in at least forty hours a week in your office, so it has to be a place that is functional and pleasant. Your entire 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 a lot of reasons to do so:
  • You've gotten too big for your current office in Atlanta. Your workers need a little breathing room! As you expand and hire more employees, you want more office space to accommodate them. (Nobody would like to share a desk or go to the break room only to figure out there is no break room.)
  • You want your inventory and office to be within throwing distance. If you have a warehouse of inventory, it may be desirable to locate your office nearby so you do not have to make such a commute.
  • You want to boost your visibility. Some businesses profit when potential customers can notice your sign every day and gain easy access to your front door. If this is you, it's time to move away from of that fouth floor office or hidden alley office and get into the limelight.
  • A different location makes more sense. Maybe your current location was wonderful for opening your business, but now it is time to move to a venue that's more available for your clients, has more parking, or is simply more luxurious.
  • You need room for a new department. An office relocation could be as simple as moving one group of employees into a new area in the same building or complex.

Still, no matter how easy the move might seem, there's a lot to ponder, which is why it is a good idea to seek out a professional moving company that can handle your office move from Point A to Point B.

  • Disassembling and Reassembling Furniture: There aren't very many office conference tables that will go through a door in one piece (and really, would you want to carry it even if it could?). Disassembling furniture and reassembling it is slow and delicate: you need to take care not to lose a single screw! You and your employees can find a better use of your time.
  • Moving Records and Files: You have your files organized, and you need to be able to commence where you stopped when you're in your new office. Prior to hiring a moving company, double check that they're capable of maintaining the organization and safeguarding the privacy of the people whose files are being moved.
  • Moving IT Systems: A couple laptops is one thing; an entire network of computers, printers and desk phones is another. Besides, even with a single tablet, you need to double check that it is correctly packaged and padded to escape issues in transit. When you get to your new office, you want to know your system can be reinstalled efficiently and, of course, correctly.
  • Moving Heavy Equipment: Depending upon your business, you might have big, oddly shaped pieces of expensive equipment that need to be relocated, too. How are you thinking about moving that item? How will you secure it? That's what pros can help you with. 
  • Keeping to a Timeline: When your office is being relocated, it's not easy to keep up with work, which is why it's imperative for an office relocation to happen flawlessly.
