Are you getting ready to move your business? If you have ever relocated, you probably know that moving can be time-consuming, expensive, and overwhelming – and that’s just if you have moved individually or with your family! Moving your company can be even more of a headache, which is why we’ve put together this list of tips to help you along.
Donate, Donate, Donate
When your business moves you may find that you have a lot of extra stuff sitting around the office. Why not get rid of all the old phones, computers, printers, and office furniture? Don’t pay to move these items if you don’t have to. Go ahead and donate them to a local charity.
Start Packing Early
If you have decided not to hire a moving company, start packing early. Do not wait until the last minute! Start by packing items you don’t use on a daily basis and if you can, transport them to the new facility as quickly as possible. Just make sure you label everything clearly; a professional moving company will instruct you and the staff on how to properly complete this.
Plan with the Moving Company
Hiring a moving company is often a good choice when moving a business. If you are planning on hiring movers, schedule the moving date at least a month or two in advance. And always remember to get quotes from at least three different moving services.
Of course, this is not a comprehensive list of tips for moving a business, but it’s a good start. Once you’ve picked a moving day and decided which company to hire, you are well on your way!
