Moving your business, whether it’s large or small, can be more stressful than moving your home and family. It’s important the move go seamlessly and quickly to mitigate any losses while your business can’t operate at full capacity. After all, in business, time is money. Here are some tips to help make your business relocation go smoothly.

  • Measure twice, cut once. As with any move, it’s important that you have a clear plan in advance so there are no surprises. You should create a timeline at least three months before your move date. Formulate a layout plan for the new space, so you won’t be pressured into those decisions when the movers come. Schedule a time to change Internet and phone services and obtain any permits, licenses or insurance policies you may need.
  • The early bird gets the worm. Research and hire your cleaning and moving company at least one month before the move. If you delay too long, it can cost you time and money in the end. Moving an office isn’t the same as moving a home, so select a well-reviewed moving company with references and experience such as Molloy
  • Respect the machines. Office equipment, such as fax machines, printers and computers, should be serviced by professionals when possible. If that service isn’t available, remove toner and ink from them prior to moving to avoid a potential mess.
  • Tell everyone about the move. Sure, your clients and employees may know you’re moving offices, but don’t forget about your vendors. Any water cooler, coffee or supply delivery services should be notified in advance, so you don’t go without their products.
  • Make it official. Update your website, letterhead and business cards one to two weeks before moving.
