If you think moving home is a nightmare then spare a thought for our Emma, she has just moved office – 3 times!
Her first was in August when a client refocussed her business, downsizing and moving to a smaller office at the same time. Emma managed everything from selling the old office furniture to physically humpfing boxes.
A couple of months later we had another client moving to larger premises and with the previous move still fresh in her mind Emmas’ previous experience really stood her in good stead. I’d have been crazy not to let her take the lead here. She cleared out the old office, archiving key information as she went. Liaised with Telephone and IT services, notified all customers and suppliers of change of address, and was onsite on the day of the move to ensure everything went smoothly.
You’d think that would be enough for anyone…but no, not us. We have some exciting news – the VABS team have moved into our own brand new office!
Based at the heart of Glasgow’s West End in a beautiful Mews building, we’re delighted with our new home. Just a couple of minutes’ walk from the bustling shops and cafes of Byre’s Road, and well connected by bus and subway, it’s the perfect location for our growing business.
It was quite a transformation – in less than a week we re-painted, fitted a new carpet, put together the furniture and settled in. Just goes to show what can be achieved with the will to succeed, a lot of elbow grease, and the help of friends and family (thanks everyone).
Before we got our hands on it, the room was empty and in need of a little TLC.
Two days later, the painting was completed and we’d even set up a temporary work-station on the windowsill (nothing gets in the way of our work!)
And after a hard evening’s graft building our desks and connecting our computers, we were ready to go!
We really couldn’t be happier with the new location, and can’t wait to welcome new and existing clients in for a cup of tea and a chat.
It’s a big and exciting change for us, and the love we’ve put into VABS HQ really reflects our passion for the job. We’re growing faster than ever and can’t wait to take on the next challenge – head first and with a big smile!
