A helpful guide on how to help you move offices or change furniture

How to Make the Most of your Office

Thinking about changing or refurbishing an office can often seem a little extravagant within today's financial climate, but the truth is that it can bring your company a lot of benefits, both in terms of your customers and your colleagues.  A well-designed office can be seen to reflect the solidity of company as a whole, as well as significantly raising the productivity of the company as a whole. 

We understand that the prospect of refurbishing an office or replacing furniture can be a highly daunting and stressful task, as there are many decisions to make that you may need advice on.  If you are thinking of changing your office, you should really speak to a company who specialise in office furniture solutions, because they will be able to give you the most comprehensive advice, as well as helping you to design an office which meets your company's own specification. 

Office furniture specialists work hard to accommodate the specific needs of a company, whilst optimising all of the space used; they also work hard to provide the staff with a comfortable work environment where they may work conscientiously, thus raising their staff morale and productivity.  As office solutions speicialists, Verve takes a great interest in office refurbishment projects, because we really enjoy helping our clients to add a breath of fresh air to their offices.  Here is a little bit of general insight as to how we work as a company, helping our clients with office refurbishments:-

STAGE ONE-  If we get a call from a company who is interested in altering their office design somehow, whether it be new furniture or through a whole office refit, we usually arrange to visit the client's existing office, in order to get an idea of what the office is used for, or what is needed from the new design.  Otherwise, we will request a plan or a rough sketch of the layout of the building, which we can just as easily work from.

We usually arrange to visit the existing offices, in order to get a clearer idea of what the offices are used for and what is needed from the new design.  We also take measurements of the existing space, in order to create accurate designs, taking in to account all of the space available.  We ask you a few questions, in order to get a firm idea of what you have in mind for your office, and how to cater for your office needs.  You may be worrying that you don't have any specific plans for your offices, but don't worry- with our help, you soon realise that you have a more specific specification than you realised!

STAGE TWO-  We then produce a range of design ideas, which we send you, along with wood samples or other items, which help to give you a clearer idea of our designs.  We send you these as soon as possible; we tend to send our ideas via email as a PDF file- this way you can send it to colleagues and discuss it more easily, though we can also produce hard copies.  Sometimes, particularly with office re-fits, we will produce CAD images of our design ideas, so that you can get a good idea of what the room would look like, and where everything would go.  We provide quotations for each option, to help you to get an idea of prices too. 
PLEASE NOTE- there is no charge or commitment for our services here, we are just doing what we can to help you.

STAGE THREE-  After you have looked over our ideas, we discuss with you any changes that you would like to make to our suggested ideas.  We carefully discuss what you like and dislike- after all, we want to create something that you will be 100% happy with.  We work hard to produce give our customers the best prices.

STAGE FOUR-  When you are 100% happy with the proposal, and are happy and confident to place the order with us, we arrange timescales and finalise the order.  We don't do a pushy sales approach- we really don't believe in it; we prefer to make sure that you are happy with everything.  We manage each of our orders carefully, in order to make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible, releasing some of the pressure from your shoulders, as a consumer!

STAGE FIVE-  We receive the furniture in to our warehouse, then our installations team will bring it into your premises.  They will assemble the furniture, put the furniture into place according to the plans, and then remove all the packaging to leave you ready to enjoy your new workspace.  We can also offer other services such as existing furniture clearance and redecoration.

If your project involves refurbishment or interior works, then we effectively project manage the whole process for you at no extra charge.  We make sure that all of the 'trades' are working as they should, lowering your stress levels somewhat!

STAGE SIX-  We like to make sure that you are satisfied with your furniture and/or new office, so we check that everything has gone smoothly.  If there are any problems that have occurred, we try our best to solve them as quickly as possible for you.
