If you find yourself in charge of moving an office to another building, you will likely be feeling quite a bit of pressure to make sure that the process goes smoothly, so that you have no chance of losing any money because of delayed restarts and decreased productivity. If you weren’t, then you probably will be now, as the old adage goes; time is money, and in the removals game, making time work on your side can be nigh on impossible. So, how to make an office move NW3 more effective? It all comes down to combining the two most valuable assets that a company has; money and time. You will likely think that saving time and money at the same time is a bit of a paradox, as usually you have to settle for one or the other, but it can be a reality if you are clever and map everything out from the beginning.

The best way to start is early. Being shrewd with your time is the key here, as it will be difference between being relaxed and being rushed. If you give yourself a month or two in which to get everything lined up and sorted out before the day of the move, then you should find that you have a great deal more time in which to give things the adequate consideration that they need. So, start with a good deal of time in which to get everything done, and begin with a list. A list of everything that you need to get done, and make sure that each entry is as detailed as possible, so that you are fully understanding the size of the process that you have to deal with. So, instead of putting ‘packing’ as an entry, you should be looking to include details like ‘pack up filing system, make inventory of each box’s contents’ as this is a much more complex operation than just ‘packing’. Once you have your list together, run it past others in the company, to make sure that there is nothing that they need doing that you have missed out.

Once your list is sorted, you can set out a time table, which if you’ve given yourself enough time, should be limited to only a couple of hours per day actually working on the move. You will be able to set out the time table with different tasks across certain time periods each day, alongside notes as to who will be doing what, when and where. This is also a great time to start thinking about where you can be saving money by doing things a bit differently, as you draw up your budget. This can be a great way to keep the overall cost of the move down, but there are certain things that you should not skimp on, as they may result in problems along the way, one of which is buying quality packing materials and hiring the best NW3 removal company possible. These are the sorts of things that can result in disaster if you find yourself in a situation where the big day comes and you are really well prepared, but find that a slack removals team mean that all of your hard work is undone, or an old box holding an expensive computer comes open and the cost of a new computer has blighted all of the savings that you have made.

So, in order to give yourself more time and money when you are moving an office, the best thing that you can do for yourself is start early and plan meticulously!
