Planning A Commercial Move

Moving Your Business

Moving your business to a new location takes careful planning and choosing the right Jacksonville commercial moving company is vital to that planning. Most businesses don’t have the luxury to take a day off, so moving your office while staying productive has to be a carefully planned out process.

Whether you are moving your office due to cost cutting measures or you are expanding your business, hiring the right business movers can help take a huge part of the burden off of you so you can plan the logistics of staff, phones, internet, etc…Below are some helpful things to think of prior to your next office move.

Pre-Plan and Get Organized

Not planning your move in advance could be a nightmare. Unfortunately it will not only cause you significant stress due to the chaos you may be experiencing with the move, but it could affect your business and the clients’ who pay you. There are many things to consider prior to moving your office (company equipment, data, files, work schedules, utility transfers, internet and phone activation, etc…) just to name a few. Therefore, it is important that you create a checklist of items needed to be accomplished, as well placing deadlines on these items prior to your move date. A lack of organizational tools in place will cause you to feel unprepared and increase your anxiety, prior to and during the move.

The Right Commercial Movers

Choosing a reputable Jacksonville commercial moving company will put you at ease. This is not their “first rodeo” and they have moved businesses big and small for years. Not only will they be able to move your items efficiently, but they can provide you tips and advice on what you should do prior to your move date, especially if this is your first time moving your office.

Working with your movers can help you gauge timelines, which is crucial to planning your move. This can include estimated time for packing, relocating your items, set-up and cleanup. Acquiring this information can help you plan work schedules for staff, installation of equipment, etc…

Communication Is Key

As with any relationship, whether it is personal or business communication is always important. If you have employees you should communicate with them so they feel like they are both informed, and a part of the process. Provide your employees with your expectations for the move, timelines and their responsibilities. You will not be able to give them a play by play of the move, so the more you articulate what is expected, the better off the moving day will go for everyone involved.
