When planning an office relocation, one of the most complicated and important elements is knowing how to deal with relocating your IT equipment. Relocating IT to new office premises requires meticulous planning and strategic project management processes. Your team needs to know where all the computers, printers, network cables and servers will be positioned.
It may be tempting (especially from a cost point of view) to organise the move using in-house resources. However, doing it yourself can tie you up during a critical time for your IT team. Equally, your IT support staff may not be available if a major IT issue occurs at work. Your alternative may be to choose a generalist relocation company but they may not have the equipment to hand to properly care for your IT equipment or the systems to relocate some of your most business-critical equipment at such an important time for you, your employees and your business.
