Working with moving professionals can make it easier to handle the business relocation process. The Winter Moving & Storage team has compiled this list of tips to ease your firm’s transition to new premises.
Plan the Moving Day Schedule
Commercial relocation is complicated especially if you are trying to keep your business running efficiently. You have to pack all the furniture, electronics, documents, and every other valuable asset. You have to know what your inventory will be when you re-open. Prepare a moving day schedule, so you don’t miss any step. Better still, entrust Winter Moving & Storage professionals to save you the trouble.
Set a Moving Budget
Relocating your business can be expensive, whether you’re moving to another state or the next city. You must be financially ready to move. Research to find the most reliable and affordable movers you can get. A budget is critical to prevent your business from coming to a standstill when moving time arrives. A moving company that can allow you to pay in installments before the moving date is preferable.
Hire Insured Movers
If you’re planning a long-distance commercial relocation, get a mover who is licensed and insured to move across all states. It’s better to be safe than sorry in case of accidents; working with an insured mover protects your assets in the event of an accident. You can be sure that your business will run efficiently even after moving. Winter Moving & Storage has met all legal requirements, so hiring their services is a win for your business.
Change Your Address
Putting in a postal change of address is the tip of the iceberg. In most cases, moving does not mean getting rid of your customers. If you intend to retain your clients, you should update them on your relocation plans and provide your new address. Place updated stationery orders promptly, so your staff has appropriate business cards, letterheads, etc. from day one of opening your new location. And, you spread the word about your new address through all available communications channels so your current customers can follow you.
Get the Right Packing Materials
Your business assets are valuable, so you should use strong cartons to pack fragile items. Remember, you still need to run your business efficiently after moving, so equipment must be protected. Separate waste from what’s essential to reduce the bulk of the things you need to move. A quality business moving company will make recommendations, or sometimes provide, the best packaging materials for your needs.
