The right commercial moving company can help you with the entire moving process, but there are some tips that make things simpler. You just need to know what the best commercial moving practices are to help you with moving your business to any new location close by or far away.
Change of Address
You might assume that you do not have to deal with changing the address of your business until the move is complete, but this is the wrong approach to take. It is never too early to begin organising the details of your address change once you have decided on the specific location where your office will be relocating to. You can begin right away by ordering new letterheads with your new updated address and also begin communicating with existing clients about the upcoming address change. It is also important to update all business sites with new address information as soon as it is relevant to clients. If you organise these details early on, it will not be a major issue once the move is complete.
When it comes to details involving the actual packing of equipment, electronics can be the most tedious items to pack. Packing up your electronic items can often be the most time consuming task associated with packing up your office due to the amount of cords and wires that are used. You should be sure to remove all cords from your computer or electronic devices. You can then place a sticker on the electronic device that corresponds to a sticker that you place on a zip lock bag. In the coordinated zip lock bag, you can place all cords that are designed for that specific device. This will enable you to stay organised during your office move and save time when you are setting up your office equipment. Be sure to write down any special dismantling instructions that will save you time when you are reassembling office devices.
It is important that you remove all risk of data loss during your office relocation by making sure that all data is secure and that all files and software are backed up properly. It is also important to have a plan of action in place that can be used in the incidence of failed IT systems once you arrive in your new office location.
