Office relocation is a necessary step for growth in business and can be an exciting but stressful time. All moves benefit from careful planning and preparation, however none more so than commercial moving. As a commercial moving company, and provider of commercial moving and storage services, we’ve prepared some helpful tips for business owners that are relocating offices.
Properly planning your move will result in a quicker, and more seamless transition to your new office. Plan out specific moving dates, time frames, and schedules. It is also best to determine a moving budget beforehand. This will limit the downtime some of your employees, and therefore businesses may experience.
Mapping out a moving budget will allow you to narrow down choices for commercial moving companies, and keep you on track for an efficient move.
An important step in ensuring your office relocation occurs seamlessly is to communicate with your employees, providing them with information, schedules, and dates of closure, if necessary.
You should notify your employees of your new office’s address, any changes in building rules, and any packing or storage details that may concern them, or their work supplies.
With the emergence of work from home capabilities, you may be able to continue regular daily work even during the transition period.
During our office relocations, we have found that assigning a minimum of one employee to help handle general logistics can be a huge help during this time.
We always recommend backing up data during a relocation. With cloud computing, Google Drive, and other software you may already be covered, however, one can never be too safe.
The last step in ensuring a smooth transition to your new office is to make sure you update your contact information to your new address. This goes for business cards, social media profiles, websites, Google My Business, and anywhere your address is listed.
