Our Top Tips For Moving Your Business

Moving your commercial property can be a truly gargantuan task. Regardless of whether you’re a small or a large operation, there’s so much to consider when moving. Read on to discover some of our tips to make the process as stress-free as possible.

Stock Check and Replace Old Equipment

Before even thinking about packing up and making a move, it’s imperative to do a ‘stock check’ of all your business assets, whether that is computer equipment or tins of beans.

Creating a thorough list which gives you a crystal clear image of all the business equipment and assets you own will indicate the best way forward with your move, how many trips it might take and the scale of disruption on your workforce.

It will also give you an indication of whether there is anything that you can throw out or recycle and replace with something more up to date as you get to the new office.


Create a Detailed Plan

Once you have decided exactly what it is that you need to move, it’s imperative to then schedule a detailed timeline and plan for the rest of the move. The timeline needs to be achievable and it’s worth dotting it with milestones and small tasks that will add up to the big picture.

Moving an entire business operation is no easy feat, so knowing exactly how and when you’re going to do it is crucial and should never be overlooked.


Pack Well in Advance Using The Correct Materials

Packing can be one of the most laborious tasks when moving home, let alone moving an entire office with a large workforce.

Just like creating a detailed plan, you must start the packing process early and complete the tasks little by little in preparation for the move.

Having to pack everything over just a few days can be a highly stressful and infuriating process and it’s more likely that things will get broken or lost during the rush.

Hire a Removals Company With Experience

Hiring an experienced commercial removals company can avert all of these potential issues and drastically reduce the amount of stress involved in the move.

Removal companies can create a detailed moving plan for you, help you pack, provide high-quality materials and then carry out the move to allow you to worry about the important things.
