How to Keep Business Running During Relocation

If your business is moving, one of the most crucial elements in knowing how to prepare for an office move is to keep the business running during the relocation. Instead of running screaming from the building, take a look at some tips to keep things humming along, even when you’re moving to a new building.

Get and Stay Organized

The best advice we can give for an office relocation is to get and stay organized. This means coming up with a master plan for the move from long before the trucks arrive until everything is back in order. Make a list that includes what needs to be done, who is doing what, and where things need to be when.

Communicate With Your Staff

Communication is key whether you have a handful of employees or hundreds of them. As soon as you decide on the move, let your crew know. Get them involved. Help them create committees to handle different aspects of the move, answer questions, and keep everyone on track. They’ll have more skin in the game to help make things go smoothly if they’re in the loop on the process. And you won’t have to do it all on your own, so they can help keep the business running at the same time.

Hire Professional Movers

When your business is relocating, you have a lot on your mind and on your to-do list. But, even with a small business and a few employees, you want to avoid managing the physical packing and moving yourself, especially if you’re trying to keep your business running at the same time. Professional movers can pack, load, transport, unload, and unpack your office equipment, technology, electronics, files, and furniture much more quickly, efficiently, and safely than you can, which will help you keep running the show even on move day.
