Working from home can be considered a dream come true; however, what will you do when your business has outgrown your home office?
Entrepreneurs are held in high-esteem by the global workforce. Amongst other things, they are known for their groundbreaking business strategies and for their problem-solving skills. However, when they have outgrown their current office space, they will need help packing up their home office and moving to a commercial space.
Consider moving from your home office to a commercial office
Are you an entrepreneur, a person who loves the freedom of self-employment, and who doesn’t mind working long hours to build up a business that you can be proud of? Most entrepreneurs open their startup by working from a home office, with the end goal of growing their business into a sizeable, sustainable, flourishing company. For the purpose of this discussion, let’s assume that your startup has outgrown your home office. What do you do?
I believe that you have one of two choices: either rent or purchase an office in a commercial space or downsize so that you will fit back into your home office. Downsizing your business after all the hard work to grow your business is not really a viable option; therefore, looking for a bigger office space is the best route to take. Once you have found the right office to suit your unique requirements, the next step is to pack up your existing office and move into your new office.
How do you go about packing up and moving? Let’s face it – moving to a new office is very stressful; consequently, you are likely to need as much help as possible. Here are a few free tips when moving to your new office which will help you get the move over and down with as little downtime and disruption as possible.
Added to these free tips, here are a some important points that you need to consider before you moving into your new office space:
- Chose your office space wisely.
Make sure that your new office is in an accessible location for both you and your staff. You don’t want to have to spend hours of each day in your car travelling from your home to your new office.
Office space rentals are expensive; therefore, it’s vital that you can afford to pay the monthly rental costs.
Ergo, build the moving cost and time into your budget. As we have said before, time costs money, so you need to make sure that you make time to move.
- Contract a professional removals company to help you move.
It makes sound business sense to take as little time off from your daily business tasks to move; consequently, by hiring professional movers to move your office equipment will cut down on your moving time.
You do not need to move into a big office with high monthly rental costs. You can increase your office space in stages. Before you move into a big office, you can consider moving into a fully-serviced office where you can rent a couple of desks in an open-plan working space on a monthly basis, or you can move in to a shared office space where you have to use your own furniture.
We understand the intricacies involved in moving to a new commercial office space. It needs to be as cost- and time-efficient as possible. After all, time is money! If your move takes too long then it can undo all of your hard-earned success; ergo, we believe that it is a good idea to request a quote from us now.
