Office Relocation Tips Bath and Somerset
Moving house is a huge task – however relocating your entire office can be a headache regardless of the amount of computers, telephone systems, furniture and office equipment that needs moving.
Avoiding Downtime At Work
The main issue with relocation is the down time for your company, where you can’t get online to handle emails, answer phones or greet customers in person. Here’s some tips to ensure you have a successful and smooth office move:
Planning Comes First
Obviously, begin with finding the new property and arranging the dates of the move then goes onto booking your removals company.

The Big Moving Day
As moving day approaches, ensure your customers know the date. Inform them in advance how long the business is likely to be down and have an emergency system in place – perhaps a mobile number manned by one designated person for the duration of the relocation.
Moving property can be a chance to do some new advertising for your business – for example the ‘We Have Moved!’ concept. Contact your local newspaper and remember to update your Google Business to ensire your Maps listing is up to date.
