Top Tips for Moving a 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 for moving a business, and making it as stress-free as possible.
Stock Check & 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
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.
Hiring an experienced commercial removals company, like Purdie Worldwide, can avert all of these potential issues and drastically reduce the amount of stress involved in the move.
