How Much Does it Cost to Relocate an Office

Moving your business interstate or opening an interstate office is an exciting time. Whilst a relocation or new office addition can be a stressful time for any business, the new opportunities that await make an effort worthwhile.

As you plan to grow and expand your business, having local offices interstate can be handy for building your presence in the market. Customers also enjoy the ability to meet a local representative to help them with their queries and requirements.

Engaging a professional office removalist will help keep your business on track during the move and transition or expansion. Earlier in the year, we posted a blog, 5 Benefits of Using an AFRA Accredited Melbourne Interstate Removalist, which provided our readers with a summary of why Dawson Moving & Storage has received an important accreditation from the Australian Furniture Removers Association.

This blog shares some important considerations about office relocations and expansions.

How Much Does It Cost To Move A Business?

The cost of moving business depends on many factors. Whilst the size of the business, in terms of office space, employees and several hard copy files, is generally a reliable indicator of the cost, many other variables need to be assessed and measured.

The key business relocation costs include:

– Moving furniture, appliances, equipment, machines and paper files;
– Marketing the move to your customers so they know where you are moving to;
– Making your new office ready for moving in (i.e. fit out, insurances, utility connections, compliance processes, regulatory requirements, etc.); and
– Acquiring a temporary storage facility to help you fill your office slowly so that things do not go missing during unpacking.
