How Do You Plan a Warehouse Move?

Business relocations are especially tricky when warehouses are involved.

Nilson Van Helping a Business Complete a Warehouse Relocation

Business relocations sometimes involve moving warehouses. Chances are, this job is going to be much more complicated than you assume. Nilson Van is experienced in these types of jobs, and we’ve devised a system for making them go as fast and stress-free as possible.

Feel free to follow our simplified warehouse moving checklist:

  1. Assess your new warehouse space. The building code for your current location could be much different than the area you’re moving to. Make sure you work with a local builder on what will be needed to successfully occupy the space and start operations. Everything from modifying your storage areas to installing adequate sprinkling systems and establishing appropriate routes for egress could cause delays and major expenses.
  2. Decide which equipment and inventory to take. A move is an excellent time to clean house. You may wind up saving by selling off older equipment in your current location and buying new units near your new facility.
  3. Schedule enough manpower during the process. Work could take double the time and effort as you’re shifting locations. You’ll need to beef up everything from third-party services to management providers until your move is complete.
  4. Keep your customers up-to-date. Ensuring your clients have your new address is one of the most important parts of successfully moving to a new warehouse. You really want to go the extra mile, and give each of your active accounts personalized attention so payments, orders, and shipments aren’t lost in the shuffle.
