The name of the game when it comes to office removals
The name of the game is to move office without losing business. If all of the planning and organising is done correctly, this can certainly be achieved.
What’s the saying’ the only thing that is constant is change’? Generally, this can be an incredibly stressful change, especially if your planning is poor or you hire the wrong removalists. It can also be uncomfortable, frustrating, demanding and expensive.
Your office relocation or office move may be due to business expansion and your current premises are simply too small. Then again it may be due to downsizing, end of lease or simply following market trends or labour.
Well, whatever the reason for your office relocation, this can be a stressful and difficult change. Apart from the fact that the move itself will suck all your mental and physical energy until you are stressed to zombie levels, it can negatively impact your business in general.
Think lost clients, lost suppliers, and the uncertainty of ever getting your business running smoothly in your new place.
But all these can be reduced to the point where your office move becomes a relatively hassle-free, even beautiful event. For the actual moving, a good removalist is an absolute MUST. New décor, maybe new furniture, new surroundings.
Moving your Business with Office Movers
At Brisbane Removalists we can not only move your office without losing business, our team can also relocate your entire business. From doctors and dental surgeries to accountant and legal practices.

Here are some business move articles we have posted on Google
Many offices in Brisbane are only accessible by stairs or lifts. Unlike many of our competitors, we understand this. For this very reason, we do not charge extra for stairs or for using lifts.
Organisation and Planning
Organisation and planning are the keys to any move. Especially, office or business relocations. These can even make moving house look like a walk in the park. Minimal disruption is what you will be aiming for.
Have your staff on board with the move. Sounds simple enough. Hold a team or staff meeting, maybe arrange some snacks or order in some pizza or similar. Explain to everyone the reason for the move, the why and where.
Encourage group participation, brainstorm everything and takes notes including staff concerns. This will certainly assist in getting their ‘buy-in’.
Depending upon the size of your office and if it is a complete relocation or simply one area or department relocating. With this in mind, a staff or team member may be required to oversee each area or departments packing and space requirements.

Here is an article we published; I suggest you read. It will give you more ideas on how you can move office without losing business.
Below are some tips I have put together to help with a seamless move. I am certain they will help you move office without losing business.
1. Start Ahead
It is hard to start things early. That thing called procrastination is a little stubborn devil and if you can’t beat it when moving office, things might not turn out so well for your business. The biggest reason you might want to keep delaying starting is that it is uncomfortable. But the more you delay, the more uncomfortable it becomes.
The moment you realize you will need to move, start planning and looking into things like what removalist to use.
2. Find a Good Removalist
Finding a good removalist is paramount if you want the move to go well. Imagine hiring a mover, agreeing on all the details then on the final day, they show up with a different truck from what they promised, one that is inappropriate for the job. Or even worse don’t show up at all! You get excuses like, sorry your booking wasn’t until next Monday, we don’t work in the rain or the truck is stuck in Melbourne.
But how do you find a good one, seeing how there is a sea of movers?
Testimonials. It is hard for a company to hide its reputation these days. People are quick to rant online whenever they have a bad experience with any company. A simple Google search will reveal a lot.
But you have to keep an eye out for fake testimonials. People will post fake paid reviews that paint companies in a brilliant light. Welcome to the real world.
Australians have become conditioned to finding the cheapest price. This works really well when you are “comparing apples with apples”. In the removalists industry, you certainly get what you pay for. Do you really want to hire the cheap hourly rate guys or the cheapest bidder?
You only get 1 shot at this, so having the right removalists is a must to moving office without losing business. Not to mention your stress levels and sanity. The crazy thing is if you hire a removalist such as Brisbane Removalists for your upcoming office move it will cost you less in the long run. An article on hiring cheap removalists and on hiring the right removalists.
Providing the office movers company with the appropriate information prior to moving is essential. So many times, we have clients provide us with a ‘list’ of items being moved only to find out on the day only half these are actually being moved.
Alternatively, there is 3 times the amount to be moved. Or, there is a 500kg safe or a printer/copier that requires a technician to dismantle prior to moving.
Either way, it ends up creating stress and additional cost to the client. If the move were smaller than booked, a smaller truck could have been assigned meaning easier access, saving time and money. A larger truck and team for the bigger move.

3. Inform all Your Contacts
Every business has its core contacts without whom it is as good as dead. These are the suppliers and others like some of the biggest most regular customers. Inform them of when and where you are moving to. This is not so hard today with the internet, email, or a simple text.
Other parties to inform include Banks, utility companies and the post office. You should also get the changes done with the appropriate business registrar. Also notifying the accountant, solicitor, and government entities. These can also be completed online.
4. Clear Your Commitments
You don’t want to miss any deadlines on account of your moving. That’s a sure-fire way of leaving your current client’s business at your old location. Reduce new commitments to leave room for the disruptive move. If you’re going to make any promises, make sure you consider the fact that you might not be able to do anything during the move.
5. Set appointments for internet installation ahead
Do not make the mistake of trying to sort your internet connections or electrician at the very last moment when organising your office move. No company will be at your office the moment you put down the phone. They usually take a month or at least some weeks. Within that period, your business will be hit. If you want things to be seamless, inform your desired company ahead.
This is also a great time to get a new internet provider. The time you were engaging your current ISP, maybe it was the best. But, obviously, new players have come aboard, and the old ones might have changed their conditions of service.
Chasing up deals from energy providers and insurance companies may also save money. The savings will certainly assist with the moving costs.
6. Use this time to Get Rid of Clutter before your office movers arrive
Chances are that you have some clutter gathered up from the time you first moved in. Now is a great time to get rid of it. You could donate it, sell it on sites like eBay or Craigslist, or, in cases of extreme wear, just throw them away.

It’s also a chance to get your office equipment updated so before you move, try to see what can be replaced so that you do away with the old, then buy new equipment directly into your new office.
7. Packing the boxes for the office movers
Clients overpacking boxes is something removalists deal with every day. There is always pressure from the ‘boss’ to save money on packing materials. Or you are time poor and, in a rush, and just stuff everything into the box.
This can be dangerous as the box may split open harming yourself or the office movers. More than likely it will cause damage to delicate items.
Use smaller cartons to pack heavier type items such as books and folders and large cartons for loose lightweight bulky items. Don’t forget to label them. It is also a great idea to list the items in the box.
Using a professional to pre-pack all of the boxes and loose items will certainly lower the stress levels. It may also prove to be really cost-effective. Your staff will no doubt also appreciate being able to focus on the task at hand.
Brisbane Removalists can certainly help with all of the packing in preparation for uplifting. For more information on our Professional Packing
