Moving office or workplace premises is a substantial and sometimes daunting task, however exciting the prospect of new business premises is. A business move requires effective planning and preparation to minimise the disruption and impact on running your business. There are several steps you can take, however, to make sure your commercial move goes more smoothly.
Just like our homes, every office and workplace accumulates unnecessary items. Take the opportunity offered by a business move to assess what your business actually needs, and then dispose of any unwanted items. Consider storage and whether you are now able to store documents digitally. If you slim down the number and volume of items to be moved, the removals process will be quicker, simpler, and probably less costly too.
Taking time to plan the move thoroughly before moving day will help to reduce downtime. Work out where furniture and other items will go in the new business premises and label them accordingly. Your removal company will tell you how to label any boxes or crates to ensure that they find their new home smoothly. It is wise to plan which essential business equipment you will need up and running first at the other end, and make sure this is moved and installed first so that you are able to get the business moving forwards with the minimum possible downtime.
