There’s no reason to dread the commercial move if you are prepared in the right way! So what can you do to prepare? What can make the move easier for you?
Keep reading for tips on how to make moving your company the easiest that it can be!
Prep 3-6 Months Prior
When you are preparing for a commercial move, you need to prepare far enough in the future so that you are not scrambling at the last minute. To ensure you have enough time, you should plan to prep between 3 to 6 months prior to the move.
This is when you should look into a commercial moving company. Hiring them in advance ensures that you have them booked during the timeslots and days you need them. When looking, be sure to look at their services as well as their flexibility and fee structure.
After you hire someone for the commercial move, you’ll want to start downsizing. If you ever find any items that you don’t need, you should just dispose of them right away. This will reduce the time spent packing and organizing when you are ready for the office move.
As you begin to assess how the move will go, you can start to figure out what materials you may need. If you hire a moving company, they will be able to assess this as well to help you get started with knowing the number of boxes you may need. You may even need to utilize pods to move the larger items.
Communicate With Employees
If you are getting ready for a commercial move, you need to communicate with your employees as well. They need to know the dates that this is happening, their own list of to-dos to prepare for the move, and how they should be cleaning up.
You will also want to communicate with how the move will happen and what employees can expect from it all.
Communicate With Clients and Customers
Before you move, you will also want to make sure that your current clients and customers know that you’re moving. Give them the change of address and the dates of the move.
You can communicate this via email, over your website, and on social media channels. You’ll also need to update the suppliers and vendors of your new location as well.
