Relocating to a new office tends to be a big operation, even for businesses on the smaller side. The process is inevitably involved, with all sorts of items to categorise and inventory, pack away, dispose of waste, unpack and set up again… and there’s far more to it than that.
Handing an office relocation yourself is certainly possible, and some businesses do elect to do just that. It is possible… but it’s very involved and does take a large commitment in terms of time. What’s more, coordinating a relocation yourself can end up costing plenty. There are plenty of benefits to business relocation, but that depends on hiring the right relocation company.
Here are a few reasons why it’s important to hire a professional Sydney office relocation service.
Relocation over disposal of office furniture
Sustainability is the name of the game, including when it comes to office furniture and office junk. When relocating, many businesses simply throw away a lot of their older furniture, because it’s seemingly an easier route than shifting it all to a new space. Unfortunately, this does translate into a poor result for the environment and will result in a financial hit for your business.
At Sydney City Rubbish, we always advocate for sustainable practices. This means that we’ll always look for an alternative to simply disposing of items that could otherwise be relocated, reused, or recycled. Relocating your office furniture to your new space doesn’t have to be a difficult task; we’ll handle your furniture carefully and safely, so you don’t have to.
The types of office furniture that you should relocate instead of disposing of (depending on condition, of course) include:
– Desk chairs
– Archiving units
– Dining sets.
Dismantle and reassembling
The most time-consuming aspect of an office relocation is pulling apart furniture and then reassembling it in your new office space. It will take a lot of manpower and labour hours to get the job done, and for that reason, you should be contracting the professionals to handle it for you.
At Sydney City Rubbish, our relocation services are second to none. We’ll take your workstations and other furniture items apart, pack them securely and safely, transport them to your new premises, and put them back together again. You won’t have to worry about a thing!
This kind of process simply isn’t something you should be spending your time on. Throughout the move, there’s no doubt you, as a manager, will need to focus on maintaining productivity and employee focus. If you allow us to handle your relocation, everything will be disassembled and reassembled swiftly, and with the utmost care.
Care for your assets at all times
Your office furniture and various other items deserve to be handled with care. After all, you or your business has likely spent money ensuring that your workplace is tastefully furnished with furniture that is comfortable for your employees.
Only a professional relocation company knows how to look after your furniture throughout the office relocation process. We utilise careful packing techniques, wrapping and insulating where necessary. We’ll move boxes and crates with the utmost care so that when your furniture is reassembled in your new space, it will be just as you left it.
There’s no doubt an office relocation can impact the productivity of your business. But it doesn’t have to! An office relocation project which takes days and even weeks will clearly mean that some of your staff won’t be able to complete their tasks (unless of course, they work from home). What’s more, if you try and manage the project yourself, you may experience delays… which will keep you from returning to normal operations, sooner.
Hiring Sydney City Rubbish for your office relocation service means peace of mind because we’ll move mountains to ensure that your operation runs on time. We manage every relocation and removal service carefully, always adhering to strict timelines. We’re prepared for anything, so that we can get you back to work, as quickly as possible.
Health and safety practices
Health and safety is a critical component of an office relocation project. There are plenty of risks and hazards present throughout the packing, moving, unpacking, and reassembling process, such as:
– Strain injuries from lifting
– Trip and fall injuries
– Fall from height
– Laceration from sharp objects.
If you’re trying to complete the move yourself, it’s likely that you and your staff don’t have much experience. And when it comes to health and safety, that lack of experience will cause problems. On the other hand, our relocation specialists have a wealth of experience, meaning they are fully aware of where risks and hazards may appear. What’s more, they’re always equipped with the right protective equipment and fully trained in safe practices.
Don’t put your people at risk; it’s not worth it.
Throughout an office relocation project, there is plenty that can go wrong. That includes missed deadlines, misplaced furniture, broken equipment and much more. Unfortunately, the entire process is prone to impacting the happiness of your staff… office workers aren’t exactly used to change!
The best way to minimise any frustration and ensure that your people remain happy throughout the move is to leave it to the professionals. We’ll not only ensure that the project runs smoothly, but we’ll allow you to focus on your people, creating a happier and healthier environment during your Sydney business relocation.
A professional Sydney office relocation company should deliver exceptional communication, throughout the entire project. At Sydney City Rubbish, we pride ourselves on the way we maintain an open dialogue with you, our client. This open communication is essential to running a smooth project, so that any issues that do pop up are dealt with quickly and comprehensively.
We’ll keep in touch with you throughout your entire business relocation in Sydney, keeping you updated on the progress of the move, and clarifying any questions you (or we) may have. This ensures we’re on the same page, and that everything is on track.
