5 Ultimate Tips for Relocating Your Business

It’s no secret that relocating your small business can be quite overwhelming. Still, it’s really important that you do it as quickly as possible, in order for you to be able to keep providing for your customers. Luckily, with just a few simple tips you can make the entire process much easier for you. Here are 5 ultimate tips you should definitely check out.

Start Packing Early

When relocating your business, you should never wait until the last minute. It’s really important that you start packing as early as possible. Think about the equipment you aren’t going to need a week prior to your move and start packing it. All of your old files and backup documents can be packed long before your move as well. Another important thing you should do before you start moving is find boxes you are going to put all of your office material in. If you want to save some money you can always contact the local furniture store and buy used cardboard boxes.


Mark Your Boxes

Once you start, you should make sure that every box is properly marked. This is going to be a real life saver once you start unpacking in your new premises. It’s always recommended to make a numbering system that will ensure no items get lost during the move. Even in the case something gets lost, you will easily be able to identify which box is missing. When labelling the boxes, make sure you don’t mark the tops of the boxes as that way you won’t be able to identify boxes that are in a pile.



Hire a Moving Company

Relocating your business is a complex process and chances are you won’t be able to do everything by yourself. This is especially the case if there are any huge pieces of equipment that have to be carried to your new premises. That’s why it’s always a good idea to hire a moving company that will help get the job done. If you decide to do this, make sure you book the movers at least a month before your big move. Also, even though some moving companies offer packing service, this is something you should do by yourself in order to make settling in your new premises easier.

Prepare Your New Premises

Another important thing you should do is clean your new premises before your big move. This is a much better option than having to clean it with all of your equipment lying around. Frist of all, chances are the previous owners have left some of the things they no longer needed. That’s why you should contact experts who can deal with junk removal for you. Once there’s no junk in your new premises, you can think about scrubbing the floor and washing the windows. You can either do it yourself or hire a cleaning company to do it for you.



Update Your Contact Information

If you want to keep doing business just as you did before your move, you will have to make sure you inform your customers about your new location. You should start doing it, even before you start moving. Posting it on your business’s social media page and sending emails to your customers can always be of much help. You can also print new business cards and flyers that will help your customers find your new location more easily. Another important things you shouldn’t forget to do is inform all of your business partners about your move as well.
Follow all of these tips and your move is guaranteed to go well and turn out to be a real hit. Once you get settled at your new location, make sure you double-check everything and you start doing business once again.

  4. Yes! Never ever forget to update your contact information wherever you have shared them. I hate it when I'm trying to get in touch with a store/brand and they're no longer there and the numbers are all wrong.
