Relocating your Business:
Statistics show that as high as two-thirds of a newly relocated business’ staff leave within 6 months of relocating.
Moving a business is typically the most stressful of all the relocation categories.
Considering how challenging a relocation can be for employees and employers, it would be best to go into it as prepared and organized as possible.
Since we know the ins and outs of relocating a business, our staff will be available to assist you in whatever way we can to make your business relocation as efficient and seamless as possible.
Every day stuck moving is another day lost. Every day lost to your relocation equals time and money.
Although our capable management and crew can perform your relocation the way you need it done, there are still certain measures you can take to prepare prior to our involvement.
Our move coordinator will go over the details with you during his survey, but just so you can prepare yourself with the basics even before contacting us, here are some helpful tips:
1. Have all your staff informed of the relocation early on so everyone is in the know of how and when it will take place. Draft a relocation plan outlining each stage of the move. Give all general staff and management a target date of when they’ll need to clean out all their desks pack their personal items.
2. Your business likely has various different types of high-tech equipment. Better to not disassemble anything or start taking high-tech components apart until you’ve had a consultant take a look and offer advice on procedures and efficient methods of organizing and dismantling things, unless someone in your office has previous experience at doing this and feels confident enough to take charge. Additional safety precautions in handling the high-tech equipment and protecting it is important in preventing damage during the course of the move. If you’re feeling ambitious, follow the manufacturer instructions on dismantling the IT systems in preparation for the move.
3. If you have a lot of furniture that requires dismantling such as cubicles, desks, tables, etc.., and you’re feeling overwhelmed with the idea of taking apart your high-tech equipment it would be best to have one of our move coordinators come in and help you determine whether or not you should hire us to do the disassembly at the original site, and set up at the new location. If necessary, we also arrange additional services, such as facility decommissioning, to ensure the security of your IT and phone system during the course of the relocation. If you have a complex move and are confused about how to begin the process, don’t hesitate to call in our move coordinator. Having an experienced professional in this field can be the difference of days or even weeks of staggered downtime.
Now that you have an idea of what is involved in performing your relocation, you’ll be better prepared on move day.
