Move Management

When a project is as large, complex and important as an office move, you need people with the best experience and resources to manage it for you. That’s Johnsons. We are one of the very few commercial removal companies that has its own professional in-house team of Move Managers.

All trained using PRINCE2 methodology, our relocation management team have the required expertise, experience and qualifications to manage the diverse range of removal tasks that are demanded in today’s competitive marketplace.

Our Move Managers provide cost-effective office relocation management and control of any move from a larger office furniture relocation or sale, to a complete turnkey CDM contract involving electrical, mechanical and civil works. In short, they are a safe pair of hands that will manage every aspect of your move from logistics to future proofing, space optimisation to filing audits and archive/storage solutions and much more.

From project start to finish

They will take your project from inception to completion with minimum hassle and stress, leaving you free to focus on doing your job.

Some people attempt move management projects themselves, but we find the smartest people see that’s a risk not worth taking. They know putting it in the hands of the experts is the safest, quickest and most efficient way to ensure the best outcome for them, their business and their people.

It all means that you don’t have to source this service from a third party supplier, giving you greater control of the whole process.

Here is the full range of move management services we can offer:

Future proofing

The process of anticipating future developments, so that action can be taken to minimise possible negative consequences

Managing change

The process of change can be difficult to manage within any existing culture. We can help in the process by conveying the sense of urgency to your whole organisation

Migration consultation

A full advisory service, using our knowledge of many projects, to help you understand how to achieve your organisation’s aims

Define space strategy

We help you look at the medium to long term goal for the work space you have. Then you can decide whether to consolidate multiple occupancies or release underused space

Project management

Planning, organising, motivating and controlling your internal resources and outside factors to achieve a specific goal

Space optimisation

It might be more cost-effective to revise your current workspace layout and arrangements than move to a completely new one

Cost management

We can help you plan and control the budget – this can greatly reduce the risk of spending too much

Asset registration

An accounting method used to register and keep track of the major resources of your business

Filing Audits

An office relocation, refurbishment or restructure gives the perfect opportunity to carry out a Filing Audit. This is the detailed quantification and qualification of all of your company documentation, with the aim of rationalising your filing and paper content.

We can perform this Filing Audit for you and make suggestions on how you can reduce the amount of paper you’re using and storing. This activity on its own can have a significant impact on the amount of office space you actually need – which could bring you savings in business lease costs or rent.

We’ll also handle the physical migration of all of your documents, so that your staff can hit the ground running when you move to your new location, or your newly refurbished or restructured office opens again. In short, Filing Audits can help your business to reduce office space, streamline your procedures and achieve its potential.


So if you’re looking for a relocation management company with high quality move management, call us on 0800 279 2505.
