Moving to a new office space in business centres in Dubai is an exciting phase for new businesses. It can only mean that your business is moving up to speed. With a new business space, your team can perform better and you will have the luxury to entertain visitor and potential investors with a posh office space.
But moving to a new business place would take a lot of effort and time. If you are in the process of transferring office, here are some tips that can help you with the move:
- Confirm your move with your landlord
Once you inked your transfer or lease, the next thing that you need to do is to prepare for the upcoming move. A week before you and your office things arrive in your new office space, better inform the landlord or the building admin. Although they already have the papers and the documents, it wouldn’t hurt to call their office and confirm your scheduled transfer. You can also ask what are the office equipment that you are allowed to bring. Most commercial office space for rent in Dubai offer tenants office machines and equipment as part of their rental package. Ask the landlord what are the office equipment available in the facility.
- Create a checklist for the move
Treat the move as an office project. And every project would need a checklist to ensure that everything is in order – from the timetable to the things that you need to bring to your new office space. Having a checklist would help packing and moving and you wouldn’t forget anything. Start with the things you need to pack and dispose.
- Brief your employees
Doing the move all by yourself can be stressful, especially if you have a number of things to pack. Do not do this by yourself. Be sure to get everyone on board on this project. Delegate packing and moving tasks to each member of the team. Provide them with the materials that they need and schedule a day or two to pack their office items.
- Tie up loose ends
Unsettled utility bills and other matters can impede your upcoming move. A month before your scheduled office transfer, inform your utility providers about your transfer and settle any balance with them. You also need to inform your clients and give them the details of your new address.
- Double-check the place
Movers always advise people to check out their new place before they transfer. This essential for creating the floor plan. Moving without inspecting the new business space would delay your set up as you will have to plan the placement of everything.
