Office relocation checklist

Office relocation checklist

When you're relocating your business, it is important to ensure that everything goes smoothly. Our office relocation experts have come together to provide you with a checklist of the most important things to remember when moving office.

You should inform your staff of the move as soon as you have information about the move, and you may wish to consult your legal advisor regarding the notification of staff to ensure you are in compliance with laws and regulations concerning the relocation of your office.

Three months before your relocation

  • Get quotes for your removal
  • Create a staff seating plan
  • Carry out a risk assessment and safety plan
  • Speak to current and new landlord and neighbours about access
  • Decide if you would like your office removals company move manager to manage the project for you, or if they should work in partnership with a project manager from your team

Two months before your relocation

  • Nominate internal move representatives
  • Assess new / redundant furniture needs
  • Arrange planning meeting with your removal company
  • Arrange planning meeting with your IT and telecoms providers
  • Conduct file audit
  • Set culling targets
  • Arrange for archive storage for files you no longer need to keep in the office

One month before your relocation

  • Finalise floor plan layout at your new office
  • Agree on file space allocation
  • Brief staff on move preparation

Two weeks before your relocation

  • Hand out move labels (provided by your removals company) to staff
  • Label up IT and furniture
  • Check parking restrictions at both new and old offices
  • Order crates from your removal company
  • Ensure your employees know where the new office is located - if feasible, take them to the new office and show them around

Day of your office relocation

Take a deep breath, and try to relax! A professional specialist office removals company should handle your move with ease, and have you back up and running in no time.

  • Would definitely recommend

    BCL are a great team of people that are very friendly and efficient with it. The move was stress-free and this was mainly down to the hard work of the BCL Team. We would definitely recommend them. The team were excellent and we have no issues with the service they provided. All the guys were friendly and very efficient and excellently managed by Andy.

    I had used them before and were happy with the service. Only a small comment of where the guys stay overnight - they had to travel from Morden to central London which took around 2 hours each way. That is a lot on top of a busy day packing/loading/unloading. I'm not sure somewhere closer in would be easier for them?

  • We used [BCL] for our last move

    Very helpful and knowledgeable. We used them for our last move and had a good service at a reasonable and competitive cost. The other men removed and placed the furniture into the new office well. I appreciate it was a long day for them – but they worked hard – so, thank you.
