Whether your business is in its infancy or a well-established enterprise, you may be considering business relocation as an opportunity to grow and expand (or indeed to downsize).
Business relocation can occur for a plethora of reasons, but one thing is certain: pursuing a fresh start in new premises is not a decision to be taken lightly.
Relocating a whole company is costly and causes disruptions, so choosing the right time to move your business - and doing it for the right reasons - is paramount.
Why relocate your business?
Moving to find better employees
One reason you might choose to relocate your business is to pursue staff with better qualifications and/or more experience.
If your business requires individuals with a very particular skill set (especially common in scientific professions), you might find that your current location just isn't suitable.
Many business owners relocate close to higher education institutions because they offer a surplus of well-educated graduates who are ready to seek employment.
Another reason you might move your business is to make better facilities available to staff. If your workforce is growing and expanding, sheer lack of space can be a factor that influences your decision to relocate.
If you find that you can afford to upgrade your facilities (e.g. desks, toilets, parking) but have insufficient space for it in your current building, relocation may be a great option.
If your business is facing economic difficulties, or the location of your business is no longer lucrative, downsizing to smaller offices in a more economically-stable town or city might be just the fresh start your business needs to recover.
Whether you need to cut jobs or not, downsizing your business can increase your profit margins and allow you to move somewhere where demand for your product / service is at its highest.
