Start by familiarizing yourself with the office relocation process. Check out Overview of the Relocation Process under the Learn button to understand the major steps in the process and what’s involved with each one. Meridian Relocation also offers another good resource, the Move Your Office Like a Pro! Office Relocation in Seven Easy Steps program, which is a simple step-by-step approach to moving your business to the new location to minimize any disruptions while keeping on top of all the details.
Next, you will need to assess your current situation and envision your ideal environment if you could start over at a new facility. A corporate relocation professional, such as Meridian Relocation, can help you with this. It’s also important to hire a real estate representative at the beginning of the process to help you assess your facility needs and locate the ideal property. Other important front-end tasks are to create a budget, build a relocation team, and to take stock of the contents of your facility and fully understand your business operating systems. Good planning is essential to making a corporate relocation all it can be for your business.
