Getting the Best Deals When Renovating Your Office

  • Written by News Feature Team

No matter how well you run your business, there will come a time when you need to have your office renovated. If you rent out the space, the landlord will probably do this for you every couple of years, but if you have purchased the offices and you own them, the responsibility will be on you and your business to carry out regular renovations. When running any sort of company, health and safety for yourself and your employees is paramount, and a run-down office can cause all sorts of problems. Here are some ways you can get the best deals when refurbishing your office space.





Check out the prices

Before you rush into signing up with a renovation company, make sure you check out the prices of a few different businesses first. You should do a tender to get different companies to put in a bid for your business – many companies do this and have a lot of success getting a great deal. You don't have to do it, but it can certainly help you to save some money and get exactly what you need.

 

Are the supplies included?

Some companies will charge you for the work, but will then charge you extra money on top of the quote for the supplies, which you need. If you want to avoid unexpected costs and have everything charged to the same quote and bill, make sure that this is something the company does before you sign up for any contracts and work. Ensure that acrow props Gold Coast, scaffolding, insulation and any extra materials can be included.

 

Find out how long the work will take

If you're working in a busy office and you need to regularly hold meetings and other events, or if you have a lot of customers and clients regularly visiting or dropping by, having renovation work going on for several weeks can become a problem. Not only will there be noise, but there could be dust, scaffolding and other items blocking the way, and you may have to move your office furniture and equipment around for some of the work. The quicker the renovations can be completed, the quicker you can get back to work and not have to suffer any disturbance.

 

What are the hours of work for the company?

The company might normally work regular hours during the day, but upon request (or to win the tender), they will offer to work during different hours. For example, maybe they can work from 5-10am and then from 4pm onwards. They may even be able to work at the weekends when your office is closed. While many companies will be reluctant to do this, you should ensure that the hours of work don't interfere too much with important things you need to do in the office.

Find out about the customer service policies

It's often better to go with a company that has a headquarters or head office with a good customer service department. If there are any problems with noise and other issues while the work is being done, you will be able to contact the head office to complain and get something done about it. Hiring a small business means that there is no senior person who you can contact if you have problems and concerns.
