The process of moving your business to a new location takes careful planning – and choosing the right commercial moving company is vital to that planning. Most businesses don’t have the luxury to take a day off, so moving your office while still staying productive requires a carefully planned out process.
Whether you are moving your office due to cost cutting measures or you are expanding your business, hiring an experienced commercial moving company can help take a huge part of the burden off of you so you can plan the logistics of hiring staff, installing phones, connecting internet, etc. So to help you with the planning, the helpful crew here at Pack N Send would like to suggest some helpful things to think of prior to your next office move.
Always Pre-Plan and Get Organized
Not planning your move in advance could create a complete nightmare. Not only would this cause you significant stress due to the chaos you may already be experiencing with the move, but it could affect your business and the clients that you provide products or services to. There are many things to consider prior to moving your office (company equipment, data, files, work schedules, utility transfers, internet and phone activation, etc…) just to name a few.
You need to allow enough time to do this properly – it is important that you create a checklist of items needed to be accomplished well in advance, as well placing realistic deadlines for these items to be completed prior to your move date. You don’t want to wait to the last minute – this will cause you to feel completely unprepared and greatly increase your anxiety, prior to and during the move.
Choosing The Right Commercial Movers
Choosing a reputable commercial moving company, such as Pack N Send, will put you at ease during this abnormally stressful time. This is not our “first rodeo” and we have moved businesses both big and small for years. Not only will can we move your items efficiently, but we also can provide you tips and advice on what you should do prior to your move date, especially if this is your first time moving your office.
Talking and planning the move with your Pack N Send moving crew can help you gauge your timelines, which is crucial. This can include estimating time for packing, relocating your items, and office set-up and cleanup after the move is complete. Having this information in advance can help you adjust work schedules for staff, plan for installation of equipment, as well determine the most efficient order in which to pack up the office, get moved, and unpack – minimizing your business downtime.
Communication Is Key with your Employees
As with any relationship, communication is always important. You want to discuss the move in detail with your employees so they feel like they are both informed, and a part of the process. Providing your employees with your expectations for the move, the timelines, and their responsibilities will go along way towards getting the office back together after the move. You will not be able to give them a play by play of the move, so the more you articulate what is expected, the better off the moving day will go for everyone involved.
