Moving your company’s office can be a stressful process. It’s not just a matter of moving computers, desks and chairs; there are so many aspects involved in a company move.
Avoiding these five common mistakes can make your company move stress free.
1. Relocating Your Business Without Proper Insurance
During a move, it is not uncommon for some items to get damaged or broken.
Ensuring that your company is insured can provide complete financial protection for your business, which could save you a large amount of unnecessary spending in the future.
2. Forgetting to Inform Your Clients
Forgetting to update your contact details on your website or social media channels can be detrimental for your business.
Businesses with conflicting addresses look unprofessional and unreliable. Search engine optimization and other technical aspects also suffer if the addresses aren’t updated.
It is wise to keep your clients in the loop by communicating with them where the business will be relocated to and inform them of any new phone numbers or physical addresses.
3. Failing to Be Prepared
While some companies may see delaying the relocation as an attractive option because it keeps their team working for as long as possible, it can actually multiply any potential problems that may occur with the move.
Clear communication with your staff before and during the relocation is crucial in achieving a smooth move. Everyone on staff, from the cleaners to the CEO needs to be informed of the move as well as the moving plan.
4. Not Using the Move as a Clean-Up
Relocating your business is the perfect opportunity to declutter your office and get rid of any unnecessary paperwork in your work space. Encourage staff to go through their paperwork and documents to tidy up and possibly recycle what is no longer needed.
This can also reduce the amount of equipment needed to be moved, which can make the process quicker and easier.
5. Not Using a Reputable Removal Company
Choosing a poor quality removal company can drastically affect your relocation process. Poorly run removal services may handle your equipment improperly, which can lead to damaged or broken goods.
It is important to conduct thorough research to ensure that you are choosing the right removal services.
