Considerations Before Choosing to Relocate?

On March 3rd, 2010, posted in: Uncategorized by 52 Comments

If you’ve lost your lease, obviously you have no choice but to move. However, if you aren’t being forced out, consider all other possibilities. For example, could more efficient use of present space, coupled with purging and remote storage of inactive files and unneeded furniture and/or equipment, make this move unnecessary? If there is even a slight chance that the current facilities could be made to work, calling in a move management or space planning consultant might spare you the inconvenience and expense of moving.
Other key issues to consider:
• Ensuring your staff clearly understands the underlying need for the move.
• Consider the timing of the move, when is the best time to move?
• Are seasonal fluctuations a consideration?
• The expense, how much will the move cost?
• Employee relocation issues (if any).
• How to minimize downtime and lost production.
• What percentage are you and your staff going to do yourselves?
• How will this relocation impact the employees?
• What effect will it have on overall productivity?
