Commercial moves are a whole different animal than residential moves. We have the insight into the logistics behind them.
Is your company gearing up for a commercial move to a new location? Before you get started on the planning process, you should understand the complexities involved in moving a business. It helps to know what’s involved before you jump in. We’ll break it down for you.
Understanding the Timeline
Businesses have to stay open, even during a move. To reduce the downtime and any potential drop in productivity, it’s important to understand the process and what steps to take first.
- Have a professional moving company assess your business, the space you’re moving from, and the space you’re moving to. They can evaluate everything that needs moving from one location to the other to build an accurate quote.
- Set your moving date. Having a date for your move can help you build a timeline and allow you to book your moving company.
- Get your employees on board. Notify them of the move, the dates, and the timeline. This will give them time to prepare themselves and their work schedules for any delays or downtime.
- Begin packing personal items and prepare everything else for the moving company to pack and prep.
Keep Your Electronics and Equipment in Mind
Allow the professionals to pack and move any electronics, computer equipment, and other technology to ensure it stays in order and arrives in one piece.
