You keep going back and forth with your decision to move to a new office space. You worry that if you decide to leave your current office, it will impact the business operations. You also fear that staying in the same place when your company keeps growing is a terrible idea. When you feel confused, these signs will tell you that moving to a new office space is the best choice for your business.
You have more employees than when you started
You did not consider having lots of employees when you started your business. Therefore, you chose an office space which was small enough to accommodate everyone at work. However, as your business started to grow, you decided to hire more people to do some tasks. The number has kept growing until the office has now become too crowded. If it affects how things flow in the office, you need to move; otherwise, your employees will not feel comfortable.
You want to be among other top businesses
You did not care about the location of your business at first because your goal was to find a place where you could operate the company. After some time, you started to care about your brand. Now, you do not want everyone to keep viewing you as a small business. Most cities have a commercial or business district where most top companies are present. You want to move to those areas to maintain that impression; otherwise, some customers will not take your business seriously.
You can afford the lease
You need to check how much you are going to spend if you rent a new place and the amount that you are currently paying. If you think you can afford the cost given the rise in profits, you can push through with your plan; otherwise, you need to keep looking for a different office space or stay where you are.
Your current landlord is not open to renegotiation
When you finish the lease, you can talk to your landlord and renegotiate the terms if you decide to stay. You have already paid to stay there for several years. Most landlords would accept an offer than lose a tenant. However, if the landlord says no, despite the case you presented, you need to walk away and look for a different place.
Your employees have no problems
You can open up this idea to everyone at work. If they tell you that it is okay for them to move as long as it is within certain areas in the city, offer them the choice and allow them to have a say in the process.
Given these signs, it is time for you to finalize your decision to move. You also need to check out cleaning services to make the place clean before leaving. You can visit website resources provided by specialist cleaning companies to find out about costs and schedule an appointment. You also need to get your deposit back from the landlord. You might not get it in full if you do not leave the place as clean as it was when you moved in.
