Is 8 weeks enough time to consider phone and internet systems when moving office?
It is vital to understand how much time you should allow when ordering your services around a planned moving office date. There is nothing worse than having to push back your move date at the last minute because your telephone lines or Internet service at the new site is not yet live.
This can happen easily if you leave it too late, it is not uncommon for expected installation dates to run past their normal recommended lead times for telephone lines, especially if any unforeseen snags appear, such as additional equipment is needed in the local exchange or more cabling is required to your new site.
As a general rule we would recommend considering your options for telephone lines and Internet connectivity at your new site at least 8 weeks before your planned moving office date, this way we can make all the relevant checks, explain options and costs, make decisions on which services to order and manage them in a timely way, whilst at the same time handling all required surveys well in advance and pushing back delivery dates to fit with your move dates. This is so much better than trying to chase services into your new site last minute to make sure you can still move.
If you have left it a little late, don’t worry, just contact us now and we can help you quickly get the ball rolling to hit your move dates.
