In recent years the trend of the home business was one that caught on like wildfire all over the world. With the world economy making it difficult for most people to invest in office spaces and corporate utilities and equipment, many creative and inspired entrepreneurs the world over chose to make their professional dreams come true by working from home.
A home office can be a great way to start out without investing too much into building a dedicated workspace and as you start doing better, there is always the option of upgrading to a new address. If you have reached that point in your professional career, congratulations on making your dreams work out for you!
Moving a home office to a new location is an exciting and proud moment and you should be able to make the most of it. Instead of tiring yourself out with the pressure of how to pack and transport everything, use our tips for moving your home office to a new location in a stress-free and upbeat manner.
Since you have been working from home up until now, you probably don’t have a vast amount of luggage and goods to transport. Even if you had invested some time and effort in creating a nice office space in the home, it stands to reason that you probably had only one or at most two rooms to yourself. Which means that there probably isn’t very much that needs to be moved to your new location from your current home office. This is a huge advantage, because it means that you can hire a professional removals service and yet not spend very much on it.
You’re probably wondering why you need to hire a professional moving service if you do not have a lot of things to be moved to begin with. Well, if you have been working for a while now, you have probably gathered some professional equipment, some supplies and tools and goods, some furniture and so on. Even if you didn’t have a lot of space and resources at your disposal when you were working from home, you probably have a lot of things that you would like to see packed and transported properly.
When you are starting out in a new place, it makes sense to want to get all your belongings moved in as safely and professionally as possible. Just because you can now afford a bigger or better office it doesn’t mean you’d want to undertake repairs and replacements because you incurred damages while trying to shift on your own.
If you have a limited budget and you do not have very many things that need to be shifted, instead of hiring a full corporate removals team, you can consider looking for a man and van moving option. This is a great alternative for those who have a fixed, strict budget and also if there isn’t a truckload of goods to be transported. Browse the options first and get quotes from different service provides. If a removal company works out more or less in the same budget as the man and van company, you can go with the one you feel will be able to do a better job on your project.
Before you start shifting, take your chosen service provider to the new office space so that they can get a sense of the place. You can also discuss how you would like things to be unpacked and placed. An office plan will come in handy for neat and organised placement and unpacking.
Make sure there is someone to receive the movers at the new office. If you cannot do it yourself, ask someone else to open up the office and wait for the movers and show them around if needed.
