Commercial moving is a complex process that requires careful planning and organization. If you’re considering a move for your business, you’ll want to make sure you are prepared for every step of the process. Read on in this blog to understand how moving companies do commercial moving for businesses.
Why Do Commercial Moving
If you are looking at expansion, commercial moving is perfect for you. As your business grows, expansion space may be needed. If so, this may be a good time to relocate your business to another location that provides more room for growth without sacrificing location convenience for customers and employees alike. You may need more office spaces for your employees if you are expanding your business.
You may need to relocate to a larger or more financially stable office. Sometimes it makes sense for a business owner to close down their current location and reopen elsewhere because they don’t like the current area or feel that they can make more money at another location nearby with better foot traffic flow or customer demographics. It’s also possible that your business’s lease has run out, and the landlord does not want to continue with leasing. If this is the case, you will need commercial movers to move your business to its new location.
Pre-planning Commerical Moving
The best way to do commercial moving is to have everything prepared in advance. If you are planning a move, it’s essential to find out exactly what you need to do and when it needs to be done. You will need to know where you want to relocate to or where you are going to open your business. You will want to tell your customers or clients where you’re moving to so they know where to find you after the move.
Plan how much space you need for your business, especially if you are expanding your business. Make a list of items to pack and boxes to use. If you don’t have packing supplies, ask your moving company for an estimate of how many boxes you will need, they should be able to give you a rough number. You may want to purchase packing supplies such as extra bubble wrap and packing tape as well as labels for your move. Create a checklist of items that need to be packed last such as electronics, office equipment, and computers, so you don’t forget anything important on moving day.
With Champion Movers, we can send out a team of packers to your location. This may help the packing process to go more smoothly. We can also assist you in making sure everything is organized to help with the unpacking process after the relocation.
Preparing For Commerical Moving
Remember that when commercial moving, things are going to be much heavier than a residential move. Let all your employees know where you are moving to and when the move is happening to keep everyone on the same page.
Pack boxes according to size and weight so that they can be easily loaded into an elevator or stairwell during the move. Label each box clearly so that movers know which floor each box goes on and where on that floor it should be placed once the move is complete. This makes for easier commercial moving.
Preparing for a commercial move also means making sure that your customers know that your business is closed for the duration of the move and will reopen as soon as the new location is safe for customers to resume visiting your company.
