Corporate relocation is a challenge, whether you’re a relocating professional, or a business moving an employee, a department, or your entire operation elsewhere. From time and budget constraints to local regulations and laws, there are plenty of challenges that you’ll need to overcome. Thankfully, planning your move with a professional moving company allows you to have the logistics of the move, insurance, and storage options covered, easing the burden on you and allowing you to focus on getting your business back up and running. Even so, here are tips to keep you on top of things during your move:
- Have a plan
No corporate relocation will go off without a hitch if you don’t have a solid plan underpinning your efforts. Ideally, your relocation plan should be complete well before the date of the move. This plan can then be communicated to your corporate moving company, they can ensure that everything runs according to schedule.
- Consider the Weather
Snow, blizzards, and hurricanes can be a huge hindrance when it comes to moving. Wet boxes, skidding trucks, and muddy footprints on brand new carpets are just some of the problems you could encounter if you have particularly bad weather on moving day. Depending on where your offices are located and where you are relocating to, try to find the safest time in terms of extreme weather likelihood.
- Mid-Month Moving
Businesses tend to be busier at the beginning and end of the month. Your own staff may be overworked and find it hard to prepare for the move, and some of the service providers you will need may be busier and less flexible. Plan your company relocation around the middle of the month for a smoother move. Your professional moving company will be able to assist you on any date, and storage services are available should you need to store products or items that are only useful in the new month.
- Ongoing Reporting
Moving organizers should ensure that managers and decision-makers are kept in the loop throughout the relocation via ongoing reporting. Group planning is always beneficial but unforeseen events may arise and the move shouldn’t be stalled while waiting for a decision to be made.
- Document Management
If you’re relocating to a new business location, this is a prime time to cut some dead weight in the form of unnecessary documents and files. Any nonessential files should be destroyed prior to the move.
