5 Challenges Of An Interstate House or office Move

If you ask removalists what distances they have travelled to move a client from their old home or office to their new home (or office), the answers will range from one street to the next to thousands of miles where a client has moved from one state to another. It is the latter of these two scenarios that we want to focus on here, as it simply throws up more challenges than a move that is so short a distance that it barely allows the drivers of the removal vans to get above second gear.

Moving interstate can occur for many reasons, such as to be closer to family, a new job that requires relocating, or simply the decision being made to start life anew in another part of the country. Whichever the reason, moving interstate is a significant event and one we highly recommend you organise with the help of experienced removalists, especially those for whom interstate moves are a regular occurrence.

Those removalists will tell you that there are some challenges to be addressed with an interstate move, and we thought it would be useful to highlight five of the most common, along with solutions to them.

Poor Planning

Undoubtedly, the biggest challenge faced by both the person moving and their immediate family is a lack of proper planning and preparation. This is bad enough when the home move is local, but when moving to another state, it can make the entire experience nightmarish if you have not planned properly.


5 Things to Keep in Mind When Moving to a New Office Building

Moving to a new office building can be a lot of work, especially if you run a large business with a lot of equipment. Using a professional removals company can help, but there’s still plenty of things that you will have to think about.

For example, you will need to make sure that you plan the move well to reduce business downtime. Because really, most businesses can’t afford to just take a week off to get things sorted.

However, this is just one thing out of many. Below you will find a list of our top five things to keep in mind when moving to a new office building.

  1. Get on Top of Things Early

Moving to a new office building requires careful planning and organisation, and it’s crucial to make sure you get on top of this early. Otherwise you will find yourself scrambling around at the last minute trying to get things ready.

We always recommend spreading the work around your team. For example, it could be a good idea to place one of your IT managers in charge of computers and other equipment. It’s also useful to have employees sort out their own belongings.

Top Things to Consider When Preparing to Move Your Business

There’s a lot to get organised when you’re preparing to move a business for the first time. You have to think about finding a removals team, getting everything packed up and minimising the amount of time your business is out of action.

We know from experience that moving a business can get extremely stressful if you don’t approach it with a methodical, organised attitude. With this in mind, we’ve put together a short list of the top things to consider when preparing to move your business. These include:

Put Together a Clear Schedule

The very first thing you should do when you’re planning to move your business is come up with a clear time frame and moving schedule. Think about things like:

  • The exact date of your move. If possible, try and move on a day that you don’t normally work on to minimise disruptions as much as possible.
  • How much time you’re going to need to spend packing things up and getting ready to move.
  • What needs to be done to set up your new premises before you can return to normal business operations.

As you can imagine, setting a clear schedule to work to will streamline the entire moving process.
