Your business is relocating and you’re thrilled - but you’re also nervous. You know it’s a great move for the company’s future but the prospect of packing and hauling everything seems overwhelming. Corporate relocation simplified by professional office movers makes all the difference.
Where do you start? And how do you move in a way that gives your business the least amount of downtime? Here are our suggestions to make your business move easier.
Corporate relocation and office moving experts, such as Victory Van, offer the following basic tips when you first decide to move your business:
- Inform employees as soon as the final decision is made.
- Use your company’s social media outlets to get the word out. Post information about the move on Facebook, Twitter and your company’s web site.
- Choose one person in the company to be the designated go-to person for any questions related to the move.
- Move the phones last so you can keep taking calls up to the last day.
Tips for an Office Move
We also suggest packing and moving your IT department and computer equipment first, as they will be the first things you want to get up and running in your new location. Victory Van dedicates one truck solely for IT. We work with you to determine the best move plan - sometimes our clients will move IT the night before the office move. Other clients will move IT early in the morning on move day.
Our experienced office move consultants also recommend the following:
- Don’t try to move yourself; hire a company that specializes in office relocation. All too often we have seen an office move go terribly wrong and then it costs more money, time and effort to get settled into the new location. Experienced corporate movers will enable you to avoid that.
- Hire the service well in advance. Having plenty of time to plan allows you to plan for any potential roadblocks and have contingency plans in place. Your corporate mover will partner with you to develop the move project plan, communications with your team and tips for everyone about making this move as smooth as possible.
- NO ONE wants anything to go wrong during your office move. But let's face it, accidents happen. Make sure the relocation service that you choose offers comprehensive insurance plans to protect your company’s assets and expensive equipment.
