70% of office moves are run by people who don't have the necessary experience

A recent survey by Help Moving Office showed that a company will only move office once every seven years and, in 70 per cent of cases, the person assigned to manage the office move is doing so for the first time. This means that the office move project is typically managed by people without the experience to handle such an important role.

Jeremy Carr-Smith, founder of Help Moving Office, said that a surprising number of respondents who had recently moved office, admitted to overspending, being totally unprepared and not engaging the right professional advice. “We saw the same mistakes being made time and time again. Primarily they underestimate what was involved with an office relocation, they don’t start the process early enough and they have the misplaced belief that they could save money by not engaging the services of external professional help.”

In today’s environment – now more than ever – companies should be looking to extract every ounce of value they can from everything they do. For an office relocation, there is no question that this is best achieved through businesses combining their understanding of their own priorities, with the expert advice and market knowledge of office move professionals. This not only ensures that they don’t make any critical mistakes, but also saves them money over the term of the office lease.

The survey also revealed that the person tasked with managing the office move project is usually the Finance Director, HR Manager, Office Manager or the P.A., who at the same time, have to continue to focus on their existing workload and commitments.

Help Moving Office, is the online resource for companies moving office, whose website is designed to guide companies through the moving office process and give them the information they need to make the right decisions at the right time. It also puts them in touch with the right companies for each important step of the office relocation. “Our focus is on breaking the moving office process down into a series of simple tasks and checklists” says Carr-Smith. “The intelligent use of project planning documents, spreadsheets and checklists will not only help plan the office move but also act as a roadmap to carry out the many tasks involved with the office relocation project.”

Help Moving Office is the online resource that provides businesses with the information, tools and contacts needed for a successful office move. It offers moving office checklists, timetables, office move budget templates and relevant articles that help businesses make informed and educated decisions throughout the office move process.

Help Moving Office also puts companies who are planning an office move in touch with office relocation professionals; including property consultants, property solicitors, office fit out companies and office removal companies.
