Finding and Relocating to Your New Office Space

Finding a new commercial office space can be a daunting task, but with careful planning and research, it can be a smooth and successful process. Whether you’re expanding your business, downsizing, or relocating to a new city, finding the right office space is essential to the success of your business. Here at TGC, we specialize in helping you find your next office space and take pride in knowing that it meets all your wants and needs.

Finding Your Office Space

Some key things to consider when you’re looking for your next office space:

  1. Budget

Before you start your search for a new office space, determine your budget. Decide how much you can afford to spend on rent, utilities, and other expenses. Consider factors such as location, size, and amenities. Once you have a budget, it will be easier to narrow down your search to office spaces that are within your price range.

  1. Location

Location is a crucial factor to consider when looking for a new commercial office space. Decide the best location for your business based on factors such as accessibility, transportation, and convenience for your employees and clients. Consider whether the location is close to public transport, parking facilities, and food and retail outlets.

  1. Size and layout of the space

Determine the size and layout of the space that you need for your business. Consider the number of employees, the equipment and supplies required, and the type of work that you do. Depending on your business, you will need to know how many office spaces, desks and meeting rooms you need.

  1. Internal fit out

When looking for your new office space, the fit out is essential for improving functionality, enhancing aesthetics, and creating a better work environment for your team. This is the process of customising and designing an office space to meet the specific needs and requirements of a business and can range from minor renovations to complete office overhauls.  When choosing your new space you want to make sure that the fit out you have in mind is achievable and suitable for the space.

  1. Engage the help of an agent

Finding a new commercial office space requires careful planning and research but the journey doesn’t end there. Once you have a found the space, negotiated the lease, and signed on the dotted line, it’s time to relocate.

Relocating Your Office

Relocating your commercial office space can be a daunting and overwhelming task. There are so many things to consider and plan for, from finding a new location to moving all your equipment and supplies. However, with careful planning and preparation, the process can be smoother and less stressful.

  1. Plan and prepare early

The key to a successful office relocation is planning and preparation. Start planning and preparing for the move at least six months before the actual relocation date. This will give you ample time to research and find a suitable location, hire a moving company, and prepare your employees for the move. Create a detailed checklist of all the tasks that need to be completed and assign responsibilities to each team member.

  1. Hire a professional moving company

Hiring a professional moving company can make the relocation process smoother and less stressful. They have the expertise and experience to handle all aspects of the move, including packing, loading, unloading, and unpacking. Before hiring a moving company, do your research and ask for references from other businesses that have used their services.

  1. Inform your employees

Inform your employees about the relocation at least two months before the actual move. Explain the reasons for the relocation and the benefits it will bring to the business. Provide them with all the necessary information about the new location, such as the address, contact details, and transport options. Create a schedule for the move and inform your employees of their responsibilities.

  1. Update your contacts and address

Update your contacts, including customers, vendors, and suppliers, with your new address and contact details. Inform your bank, insurance provider, and other service providers about the relocation. Update your website and social media channels with the new address and contact details.

  1. Test the new office space

Before moving all your equipment and supplies, visit the new office space to check if everything is in order. Test the internet connectivity, electrical outlets, and other amenities. Make any necessary repairs or renovations before moving in.
