Planning A Commercial Move
Moving Your Business or Office Setting
If you are moving your business to a new location, you know it takes careful planning and choosing the right Lake Norman commercial moving company to flawlessly execute the plan. Most businesses don’t have the luxury of time to take a day or two off, so moving your office, while keeping your employees productive has to be a carefully planned process.
Whether you are moving your office because of expansion or due to cost-cutting measures, hiring the right professional business mover can help take a huge part of the burden off your shoulders. Additionally, you might need assistance in planning the logistics of staff, office architecture, phone lines, and internet service.
At Tru-Pak Moving Systems we have years of office moving experience and trained staff to facilitate all of the essential tasks that have to be performed. Tasks like cubicle tear-downs and setups, coordinating the many different vendors that need to be selected, and firm move and delivery dates to fit your busy schedule.
Below are some helpful reminders to think about prior to your next office move.
The Pre-Plan and Organization Phase
There are numerous things to consider when planning an office move including; the transfer of company equipment, data storage, files, work schedules, utility transfers, internet, and phone activation, not to mention the takedown and set up of the office. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you had a skilled moving partner with years of experience to assist with all the specific details and tasks that need to be accomplished? Not choosing the right mover and not planning properly in advance could be a costly nightmare. It will not only cause you significant stress but could affect your business, your clients, and your employees as well.
Therefore, it is important that you get organized and create a checklist of tasks that need to be accomplished. Establishing a schedule as well as placing deadlines on those tasks prior to your move date will help. The lack of putting organizational tools in place will cause you to feel unprepared, increase your anxiety, and might cause disruptions in your business prior to the move.
The Right Commercial Movers
Choosing a reputable Lake Norman commercial moving company will put you at ease. Professional commercial movers like Tru-Pak Moving have moved businesses big and small for years. Not only will they be able to help you organize the move efficiently, but they can also provide you with tips and advice on what you should do prior to your move date. This is an important function especially if this is your first time moving your office location.
Working closely with your mover can help you gauge timelines, which is a crucial part to planning your move effectively. This can include estimating time for tear-downs, packing, shipping and delivery, setup and relocating your items, and of course the inevitable cleanup. Acquiring this level of information can help you plan needed work schedules for staff, installation of equipment, etc.
Communication is Paramount to Success
As with any relationship, communication is paramount to success. Management should always communicate with their employees so they feel like they are informed, productive, and part of the process. Providing your employees with your shared expectations for the move, its timelines, and everyone’s responsibilities is crucial.
We feel the same way here at Tru-Pak Moving. That is why we assign a highly trained and experienced “Commercial Moving Coordinator” to every commercial move we make so that we are able to give you the play-by-play game plan of the move from every angle. That one point of contact can articulate what is needed so that the whole process will go off without a hitch.
