Is an Office Relocation in Houston on Your Agenda?

Office Relocation

You and your employees spend at least 40 hours each week in your office, so it should be an area that is useful and pleasant. Your entire business is dependent upon what goes down within those cubicles. With that at the front of your mind, you might be pondering an office relocation. There are lots rationales to do so:
  • You have outgrown your current office in Houston. Your employees need a little area! As you expand and hire more people, you require additional office space to have room for them. (Nobody wants to share a desk or go to the break room only to realize there is no break room.)
  • You prefer your warehouse and office to be close together. If you have a warehouse of inventory, it could be desirable to have your office closeby so you do not have to have such a commute.
  • You need to up your visibility. Some businesses gain when potential buyers can view your sign every day and have easy access to your front door. If this description fits you, it is time to get away from of that fouth floor office or hidden alley office and get into the mainstream.
  • A different location makes more sense. Maybe your current locale was wonderful for opening your business, but now it's time to relocate to a place that is more available for your clients, has more parking, or is simply more upscale.
  • You need space for a new department. An office relocation may be as obvious as moving one department of workers into a new workspace in the same building or complex.

Still, no matter how easy the move might seem, there is a lot to ponder, which is why it's a good idea to hire a professional moving company that can take care of your office move from start to finish.

  • Disassembling and Reassembling Furniture: There aren't very many office conference tables that will navigate through a door without being taken apart (and seriously, would you want to carry it even if it could?). Disassembling furniture and putting it back together is slow 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 your files organized, and you should be able to start where you ended when you are in your new office. Prior to hiring a moving company, make sure they're capable of maintaining the organization and conserving the privacy of the people whose files are being relocated.
  • Moving IT Systems: A few computers is one thing; an entire network of computers, printers and desk phones is another. Beyond that, even with a single tablet, you want to make sure it is correctly packed and padded to avoid damage in transit. When you arrive, you want to rest assured that your system can be reinstalled efficiently and, of course, correctly.
  • Moving Heavy Equipment: Depending upon your business, you may have large, oddly shaped pieces of expensive equipment that need to be moved, too. How are you planning to move that item? How will you protect it? That is what pros do best. 
  • Keeping to a Timeline: While your office is being relocated, it is hard to keep up with work, which is why it's essential for an office relocation to happen quickly.
