Relocating Your Office in Dorset with Johnson’s

Posted on 03/01/2022 by Nick Johnson
Relocating Your Office in Dorset with Johnson's For any business owner who's looking into moving to a new office or workplace next year, there are some things you need to consider before jumping into the deep end. For many, budget is a crucial part of this, and, understandably, you're looking to trim costs wherever possible. Even the cheapest office removal will set you back with some upfront costs. It's worth remembering that things aren't always what they seem, especially for bargain removals prices and DIY moves. Remember, the main thing is to cost things out in detail from various perspectives. Using professional like Johnson’s Removals will give you a level of service that's not possible if you do this yourself or with some removal's providers. The Low-Down on Office Relocations – If you're moving from a smaller office into a larger space, you will want to take your current office furniture with you. Most office desks and chairs aren't cheap, and if they're in working condition, it doesn't make sense to buy new ones. Additionally, you'll be doing a good deed for the environment by reusing instead of buying new. Your IT system and other electronic equipment will be even more expensive, and the added cost of purchasing any new items is a cost your company can do without. You may need to buy additional equipment later, so it's best to keep the money for that and retain what you have now. Once you're in the new office, it might be a good idea to undertake a furniture and equipment audit to check. For now, it's better to try and conserve your budget and put it towards your upcoming office removal. However, nothing stops you from pricing new work items for ease of reference. The same goes for organising your big move. Start by getting at least three quotes for the relocation, starting with Johnson's Removals. DIY or Work with the Professionals? To save money, you can hire your own vehicle, roll up your sleeves and do the move yourself, but this isn't always as cost-effective as it first looks. For one, you're paying for a hire vehicle on a daily rate, and if you go over that day, you must pay the next day again. You've also taken an entire day of your own time to do the removals. Because you're not a qualified removal expert, you risk damaging your items and yourself significantly if you don't lift heavy objects properly. So, what's the best option for removals that is also cost-effective and will ensure that your office move happens seamlessly as possible? The solution for businesses in Dorset is Johnson's Removals. We have the perfect balance between affordability and providing the best customer care and service delivery available. We offer a range of removals and relocation services – and we're known as the best company for office relocations in Dorset. Our team works within strict deadlines to ensure that your office move concludes on time and every aspect of your move is planned in detail to consider things like traffic issues. Johnson’s knows every area of Dorset consummately, and we use this knowledge and our specialist removals skills and training to full effect. Why Some Businesses Use Storage – Businesses have storage requirements that aren't always met within their work building, much like a household situation. Then there are times where seasonal demand increases and additional space is necessary for a temporary period. Regardless of your needs, Johnson's has the right service to meet your requirements. We also offer an Archive Service if you want to store your legal and/or essential paperwork and documents offsite to help free up space in your new office. The more space you allocate to your primary work, the easier it will be to promote efficient work practices and health and safety measures. Furthermore, you won't have a series of filing cabinets taking up room in your office, and your vital documents will have the best protection. Our storage warehouse offers a range of self storage packages to suit everyone's circumstances. If your company has a production element and you'd prefer to have an offsite option, then we have the storage service to fit your needs. We'll give you a helping hand by performing a thorough assessment to determine the most suitable level of storage for your business. Every Type of Business Removals – At Johnson's Removals, we always look at each removal inquiry on an individual basis. From experience, we know that no two moves are the same. This also applies if we're working with companies with similar numbers of employees. Generalising is the first step to a mistake, and we always strive to understand every detail. We can undertake all types of office and workplace relocations. Johnson's has the equipment and expert staff to perform any removals or related service. We pride ourselves on being Dorset's number one company for business removals and storage. We offer the best prices on the market, and we match that with the best customer service you'll find anywhere in Shaftesbury and the surrounding areas. This means we can perform business removals of scale, regardless of the size of your company. Moreover, we'll put together a solid strategy that covers every aspect of how your business operates. The reason for this is so that we can avoid any unnecessary downtime or delays. Our number one objective is to have you up and running straight away. Move Managers for Complex Jobs – When we mentioned creating a strategy in the last section, it's worth delving into more detail about what this means. Office and other commercial removals jobs differ drastically from a domestic move. This is due to dealing with potentially complicated equipment, and specialist skills like IT migration and setting up sensitive electronic devices. Additionally, more coordination is necessary to keep things running right until the moving day, especially for businesses with a production line. You'll also need to factor in the human element regarding working patterns, annual leave, and anything that's HR-related. And let's not forget that you'll need to inform your supply chain, associate companies, and customers of your plans. This is all for what might be considered a typical office relocation. There will always be cases where things are more complex, requiring a higher level of organisation and execution. We'll assign a dedicated move manager to your office removal in situations that fit this description. They'll use their vast experience and expertise to arrange the entire relocation, from the beginning until you're ready to reopen in your new office. Balance Price and Customer Service – When you begin seeking quotes to compare, you'll inevitably find a disparity in prices and information. This is why it's essential that you get at least three quotes from any prospective moving company. However, this shouldn't be the only thing you consider when weighing up which removals provider to book with. You'll need to think of things in terms of good value for money and what type of service you'll receive. There's a lot of truth in the saying that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. More often than not, removals companies that offer very cheap prices do so because their range of services is limited. Similarly, they might not have a particularly good reputation for performing a high standard of service delivery. The problem is – how do you find this out before you commit? The answer is a straightforward one. All you need to do is check each company to see their Google Reviews and Trustpilot ratings. If they have an overall score over four stars, you're on the right track. More importantly – read the testimonials from previous customers. This will give you more insight into the type of service you can expect to receive. You can find our sterling ratings here, and we encourage you to read the related reviews. Johnson's Removals – Dorset's Number One for Business Relocations – While you can do a DIY and undertake the relocation to save money, remember to price it thoroughly. You might find it's not as cheap as you initially think, especially if you hire a van and then don't complete the move that day. Plus, you run the risk of damaging your work's furniture and equipment. That's why it's better to work with professionals when moving to a new office or workplace. The Johnson's Removals team perform complete office relocations every week, and we work with companies of all sizes and shapes. That makes it possible to relocate a small business with five people all the way up to a multinational with hundreds of employees. And we'll provide you with the highest standard of service possible, which is why we often receive bookings from companies in the neighbouring towns and even outside of Dorset.

Removals Somerset

Living in one of the UK’s big cities can be a rewarding experience. There’s usually plenty to do, places to go out for a drink and eat. There’s lots of entertainment and places to visit. We also tend to gravitate towards cities because of work and transport links. Sometimes city life might have outlived its original purpose, and it’s time to rethink your options and consider moving somewhere away from it all.
