As a business owner, there may be many reasons for you to have to change locations. Perhaps your company has outgrown your current office location or maybe changes in the area have made it necessary to make a move. There are important things to contemplate whenever you have to relocate your operations.
Location, Location, Location
Location matters and this is especially true for businesses. If customers regularly visit your current location, you need to consider how a move might impact them with respect to time and convenience. Will your business suffer by being in an area that is near to or far from competitors? Are you buying a building or leasing office space? What will the change in monthly rent or mortgage be? Keep these things in mind as you plan.
After you’ve answered the location question, you now need to figure out how to get there. Before you consult a commercial moving company Aurora CO, you need to take a stock of your current belongings and decide what to keep and what to get rid of. If you’re renting office equipment, does it make sense for you to bring those items along or have the owners take care of them? Also, how much of the packing should be done by you and your team or left in the care of pros? Discuss all your options with your professional movers in advance.
Just as with a residential move, you’ll have to register your change in address with all business accounts and clients/customers. You’ll need new business cards, checks and letterheads. Moreover, you’ll have to remind others of your address change in your correspondence. Be sure to register your change in address with the United States Postal Service.
As with a residential move, a commercial one requires preparation and forethought. An improperly handled relocation can have a negative effect on the way you do business. Carefully coordinate your move so that the disruption to operations is minimal.
