No matter the reason, whether it’s moving to a new office, current lease expiring or relocating to a new city to run your business, the aim is to move with minimal disruptions to your operations.
Here are four things to do to avoid losing productivity during an office relocation.
- Create a plan
The key to this is careful planning! As early as possible create a timeline and moving schedule to ensure you have adequate time to get everything in place before the moving date. Also, be sure to make a list of things to check off and distribute the tasks to your team to handle. Plus, include an inventory of the items and furniture you would like to move, to avoid missing out any of the items!
- Inform your Customers
Your customers are your business! Always take the time to inform your customers of your move by sending them a card in the post, sending an email or just giving them a call. Keep them informed of your moving date and where you’ll be moving to! Also, be sure to put up signs that are easy to spot and inform suppliers of your change of address!
- Pack properly
It’s more costly to purchase new furniture than to pack properly. So, always use good packing materials when moving your furnishings. You will need bubble wrap, a variety of cardboard boxes or plastic crates, packing tape and marker pens. Create a labelling system to quickly identify which box goes where at the new location.
- Choose a reliable mover
Always hire a trusted moving company to handle your move. You wouldn’t want your chosen movers to cancel on you on moving day, disrupting your schedule.
