At Liverpool Lets, we understand how stressful an office relocation can be for any size of business, which is why we’ve put together these five handy hints to ease your way, and keep you pointed in the right direction.

Start things early

 Plan ahead – a good rule of thumb for any relocation is to allow yourself a comfortable six weeks of lead time. Non-essential equipment can be packed up and shipped over in advance of the move, leaving the very core of your business to be moved on the day.

Out with the old

 It’s amazing how things collect over the years. Obsolete pieces of technology, outdated procedural manuals, and broken furniture are just the start. Whether you sell them on eBay, donate them to charity, or securely and safely dispose of them, now is your chance to get rid of the detritus and start afresh.

Pack to perfection

Mark boxes clearly and ensure that you have a plan for loading and unloading onto the van, and that you know where they’re going in your new building, as it will save you time and stress at the other end.

Get things hooked up

Have you arranged for phone lines, broadband, gas, water, and electric to be waiting for you when you move? If you have, what about those other amenities that get staff through the day: kettles, fridges, microwaves, vending machines, and water coolers?

Let the world know

Now that you’ve moved into your fancy new digs, be sure to update your business cards and headed paper, as well as less obvious places that hold your contact details: your website, the company Facebook page and Twitter account, online business directories, and corporate email signatures.
