Office relocation advice
It doesn't matter if you're relocating your company across the country, moving to a new floor, or refurbishing your existing premises - you need to plan and prepare in advance to ensure a smooth transition. Let our commercial relocation professionals take care of your office relocation hassles.
Your move champions
The people you select from your team as your move champions will be key to ensuring your move progresses as smoothly as possible. Establish clear roles and responsibilities for your move champions and hold regular meetings to ensure key dates and targets are met.
Choose your office removal specialist
You should select your removal company as early as possible in your relocation process. Working hand in hand with your move champions should be the move project manager from your office removal company. The move project manager will have the experience and knowledge to point out pitfalls in plans, and help guide your move champions towards a, smooth, effective, and stress-free relocation.
Choosing the right property for your business
You've decided that your current premises aren't working for the needs of your business, your lease is expiring, or you want to relocate to another part of your city or the country. No matter your reason for moving all or part of your company to another location, planning and finding just the right premises is an early key point for a good move.
A feasibility study is extremely helpful at this stage to help you determine exactly how much space you'll need, how to best accommodate your staff, your current and your future business needs. This will help you find the right space for your business to grow, reducing the need to move again in the future. Expert advice will help you avoid the pitfalls of choosing your own property and will point out issues to help you save money in the short and long term.
Choosing the right office furniture
Choosing the right office furniture isn't as simple as picking out styles you like. You need to consider health and safety, how it will fit into your workspace, along with it suiting the image you want to project for your employees and visitors.
Disposal of redundant office furniture
You need to consider the responsible disposal of your unwanted furniture. You can donate, recycle, or sell your unwanted office furniture and equipment. Discuss your needs in advance with your move manager, who can ensure your unwanted items are responsibly moved on moving day, so you can simply arrive at your new office with your new furniture and accessories.
Relocating your IT equipment and telecommunications
Many people overlook this crucial part of their business until the last moment. Take the time to discuss your computer, IT, and telecommunications relocation needs with your move project manager to ensure that you have little to no downtime for your IT and telecommunications services and everyone can get straight back to work on their computers at their new office
Declutter, destroy, & archive documents
When you're moving, it is a perfect time to declutter your offices and place files that you must keep but don't need to access daily into archive storage.Your move project manager can help you arrange for secure shredding for paper and secure destruction of computers and other data storage devices if needed. Don't move items you don't need to your new office!
On moving day
- Make sure your staff know where they should report on moving day, as well as their new location
- Ensure security is in place at your new premises
- Have an induction for your staff to introduce them to the new location
- Make sure everyone knows about fire routes, meeting points and who the fire marshalls are for your new location
- Unpack, relax and enjoy your new offices!

Came back quickly with a quote
They were fantastic, so helpful, polite and efficient - even with only one lift working! Used BCL because you came back quickly with a quote and worked around not being able to get into the office which was a great help.
Thanks again to the team on the day that were brilliant and to Piers for putting up with all my calls and changing dates - fantastic service all round! Had a prompt reply from the initial enquiry and great customer service.Vicki HarrisonManchester

Seamless, professional and issue free
I wanted to take a moment to say a big thank you to you and your teams for support the relocation/reconfiguration of the furniture on the 2nd floor. It was seamless, professional and issue free. I have noticed the team working a few times, in my car whilst driving past the old library some weeks ago and of course I have been present at times during the move the last couple of weeks. The team is a credit to the business. They all worked extremely hard and quietly SMBC is very happy with the output as are Robertson. Please pass on the thanks to the team.Stockport CouncilManchester
The packing, unpacking and delivery were incredibly smooth
I just wanted to feedback to you how great Greg and the team were during our move from One Stockport Hub to Central. The packing, unpacking and delivery were incredibly smooth and they were superb in terms of moving other items as required.
They really did make a difficult job so smooth and easy.Martin RobertsManchester
