Are you moving offices? Businesses need to adapt to succeed, including upsizing or downsizing office space as needed. By adjusting your need for space, you can cut costs and better manage your resources.

Moving offices can press pause on your operations or your ability to trade, so it’s important to make the move quick and efficient. Here are a few tips to help: 

  • It may sound obvious, but before even committing to the move make sure that the new office has enough space for employees and equipment. A good agent will always make sure you have the perfect space to meet your needs
  • Take a careful look at the furniture in your current space. Will it be enough, or do you perhaps have too much to fit into the space? If too much, consider multi-use furniture such as ottomans with storage space etc.
  • Boxes are your friend. Use sturdy boxes to store your items during the move and name each of them so you know what goes where. Good news, we sell a wide variety of quality boxes at all of our stores
  • Take advantage of a self storage unit to store stock, inventory or excess items during your move so that you can still trade while you settle into the new space. We have plenty of e-commerce customers that use our secure self storage units to store and sell items
