As a Toronto office installation company, we are very familiar with the ins and outs of office relocations. To help you to make sure you get the most out of the new space without missing out on the old, we have assembled this simple list of relocation DOs and DON’Ts:
Often a move will result in furniture that is no longer needed. Finding a new home for this furniture can help to save the environment—as you’re preventing the perfectly functional old furniture from ending up in the trash—as well as earning yourself a couple extra dollars.
Any office furniture that you leave behind is essentially money thrown in the dumpster. Remaining office furniture is usually thrown in the garbage before the next tenants move in, resulting in perfectly good furniture being relegated to the landfill.
If you are replacing certain parts of your furniture, or if you’re just adding new furniture to fill a newer, larger space, make sure that it fits in with the old furniture, both with regard to colour and style. Matching styles can prevent your older pieces from ‘sticking out’ as ‘the bad one’, while giving your office a much more cohesive—and pleasing—aesthetic.
This is actually a two-pronged ‘don’t’: Cheap furniture is usually cheap for a reason, either because of poor quality (which results in poor durability), poor design, or because it is missing a component or a ‘matching set’.
Also, purchasing with consideration to cost over esthetics can result in some truly hideous colour combinations in your office, which can make your workspace feel slapdash and unprofessional.
There are a number of reasons to trust your office installation to the professionals. In fact, we have a number of blogs on the topic that list the specific reasons why.
It can often be tempting to attempt to either assemble furniture yourself, or to have salaried employees assemble the furniture for themselves. While this might seem like a fiscally responsible decision at first, it’s important to remember: In the business world, time is money, and slowdowns can have a major impact on your bottom line. Professionals have the tools and experience to assemble office furniture far more efficiently than any amateur, allowing you to get back to work ASAP.
