Six Things to Consider When Moving Your Business

Six Things to Consider When Moving Your Business

When you move your business into a new workspace, it can be one of the most exciting times for both you and your staff. It isn’t easy, of course, but today we thought that we would give you a short list of considerations that you should take in order to make this process go smoothly.

Begin Preparations Proactively

When you move to a new location, there is definitely some planning involved. You need to take everything into account ahead of time and adapt your strategy as circumstances dictate. You will want to get your finances in order, and acknowledge that you will run into situations you may not have considered before.

Deciding On a Space

Moving to a new location, you will want to select one that fits the needs of your business. Do you need a place that brings with it a lot of foot traffic? Do you need more parking? What amenities will you need? There are a litany of considerations that you need to take into account before choosing your new location. Obviously, your budget will play a major role in where your business ends up. Will you be purchasing your new space, renting, financing, or leasing? Knowing what you need in a new location can make a lot of different uncertainties go away.

Considering Property Rules

If your choice is to rent and lease space, you will need to have a conversation with the managing party to get a clear idea of what your rights are in your new property. Some will be listed on the lease agreement, but some considerations that you need clarification on will have to be discussed with the property manager so as to not cause the relationship to sour. 

Determining The Floor Plan

Once you are ready to move in you will need to determine where to put everything. Do you need your workspace to be laid out a certain way? Do you want a more open workspace that encourages collaboration or a closed plan that allows people their own secluded space? Do you need a dedicated conference room or rooms? Using the floorplan to determine the look and feel of your new space is one of the most satisfying parts of setting up a new office. 

Determining Your ISP

Even though the Internet isn’t actually a utility, it is essential to the success of almost every business. Finding a reliable ISP will go a long way toward having your technology work for you. Make sure to investigate your available service providers and make a thorough comparison to get your business the services, speed, and bandwidth your staff will need. 

Planning Your IT and Office Communication Systems

Once your ISP is on board and has set up your connections the way you would like them, you need to update your technology. That is installing servers, workstations, modems, routers, switches, and more. Furthermore, you will want to simultaneously install the company’s communications infrastructure to ensure that all is ready for your staff to come in and be productive.
