Moving office is a big undertaking and between staff, confidential paperwork, equipment and furniture, it can become pretty complicated. One of the biggest things you need to consider is the timing of your moving day and there’s a lot more to it than just picking a date at random. As the expert in office removals Perth, we know a thing or two about the best timing for your office move. Let’s take a look at some of our top tips!
Check the dates of your lease
When you’re choosing your moving date, remember to consider when the lease runs out on your current building and check if and when new tenants are moving in. You want to give yourself plenty of time between moving day and your lease running out so you’re not trying to vacate the space while a new business is moving in.
Organise a mid-week date
Mid-week tends to be your best bet when choosing your moving date. Not only does it mean that you’re more likely to find an available removalist company, your staff are also more likely to be on board to help. A weekend move might seem like a good idea but you’ll have trouble getting it over the line with staff.
Move during business hours
A lot of businesses think that moving outside of business hours will be the least disruptive but sticking to business hours tends to be a more sensible approach. Not only will you need to pay staff overtime if they don’t normally work outside business hours, you may need to pay a premium to your removalist if you choose to move outside standard hours. After hours moving can also be an issue when it comes to accessing your building.
Choose a quiet time of the month
Think about the time of the month where your business is quieter and work your moving date around that. For most businesses, the beginning and end of the month are the busiest times so a mid-month move makes the most sense.
Book your removalist ahead of time
If you want your pick of moving date, it’s essential that you book at least three to six months ahead. If you leave it too late, the removalist you want to use may not be available and prime times are likely to be already taken. You particularly need to book ahead if you’re planning on moving during the peak summer months,
