With children back to school over the next week, it seems everyone is turning their attention to work mode again, and to keep the buzz going, many companies are considering moving office.
According to Commerce Chambers Ltd, purveyors of luxury business space, there are certain times of the year that are better to change offices than others. And it would seem Autumn is one of them.
Commerce House in Middlesbrough is owned by Commerce Chambers and is a recently converted business community. The team there is geared up for an influx of new tenants moving in over the coming weeks. As well as office space the building offers meeting rooms including a stunning boardroom, a business lounge, hot desking, co-working and virtual tenancy, all of which are proving popular
The office space is being reserved fast with a few of larger offices left available, seating between five and 15 people. Facilities manager at Commerce House explains why the most recent influx of tenants seem to want to move in September:
“Autumn seems to be a time when the summer is over, but the end of the year is fast approaching. There are just a few months left to make an impact and make those business improvements you might have been planning for this year.
“It is also a good time of year for removals – removal companies aren’t tied up with as many house moves and the weather should hold, meaning there is more of a chance of it being dry on your move in date.
“Moving in the Autumn also means you can get settled – many other companies are back to full strength with their team, so you can rely on services being executed and all important things like broadband and telephones being sorted quickly!”
However, with any move there can be issues, so Christine has compiled her top three tips that tenants of Commerce House have shared with her:
- Plan and pack accordingly. OCD is a good thing in this scenario – label and keep those documents and items that are key to you being to start work in colour coded packing boxes, so they can be found as a priority.
- Announce your move before you go, and as soon as you are settled. To all clients and customers, prospects, suppliers and of course, the media. Commerce House offers a free press release to all new tenants for this very reason.
- Pre plan employees, make sure they know which will be their desk, where to park, how to get in and out of the building. Commerce House is delighted to host pre moving in sessions for companies so employees can familiarise themselves accordingly.
