Is an Office Relocation in Dallas on Your Agenda?

Office Relocation

You and your employees spend at least forty hours a week in the office, so it should be an area that is functional and congenial. Your whole business depends upon what goes on within those offices. Keeping that at the front of your mind, you might be contemplating an office relocation. There are a lot of rationales to do so:
  • You have grown out of your current office in Dallas. Your workers need a little space! As you expand and hire more employees, you require additional office space to have room for them. (Nobody wants to share a desk or go to the break room only to discover there is no break room.)
  • You want your inventory and office to be close together. If you have a warehouse of inventory, it could be more productive to have your office nearby so you do not have to have such a drive from one to the other.
  • You need to boost your visibility. Some businesses benefit when potential customers can notice your sign every day and have easy access to your front door. If this sounds like you, it is time to relocate out of that sixth floor office or hidden alley office and get into the limelight.
  • A new venue makes more sense. Maybe your present locale was perfect for beginning your business, but now it is time to upgrade to a venue that is more convenient for your clients, has more parking, or is simply more upscale.
  • You need an area for a new department. An office relocation could be as simple as moving one set of employees into a new workspace in the same building or complex.

Still, no matter how simple the relocation might seem, there's a lot to think about, which is why it's a good idea to hire a professional moving company that can manage your office move from Point A to Point B.

  • Disassembling and Reassembling Furniture: There aren't very many office desks that will navigate through a door as a single piece (and really, would you want to carry it even if it did?). Taking apart furniture and putting it back together may be tedious and delicate: you need 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 a system, and you should be able to commence where you left off with it when you're in your new office. Before you hire a professional mover, it’s best to check that they are capable of maintaining the organization and protecting the privacy of the people whose files are being relocated.
  • Moving IT Systems: A couple laptops is one thing; an entire network of computers, printers and servers is another. Additionally, even with a single tablet, you should make sure it is appropriately packaged and padded to circumvent damage in transit. When you settle in at your new location, you want to feel at ease that your system can be reinstalled handily and, of course, correctly.
  • Moving Heavy Equipment: Depending upon your business, you could have big, oddly shaped pieces of high-priced equipment that need to be moved, too. How are you going to move that item? How will you safeguard it? That's what professionals can help you with. 
  • Keeping to a Timeline: When your office is being moved, it is difficult to keep up with work, which is why it is imperative for an office relocation to happen flawlessly.
