As you start searching for new digs, heed this advice:

  • Figure out how much space you really need. Don't guess; miscalculations can be costly.
  • Establish a budget. And don't forget to include relocation expenses in your plan.
  • Check out the building's power supply. Older structures may not have enough power for today's equipment-laden businesses.
  • Ask about the office's services and access. Can you get in 24 hours a day, seven days a week? Is the building heated or cooled at night and on weekends?

If all this sounds like too much for you to handle, consider hiring a consultant to do the legwork for you.
