The task of moving your business can seem overwhelming from the start. Every business owner knows that they need to complete the move as fast and efficiently as possible so that they can get back to full operation. After all, the less downtime your business experiences during relocation, the less profit you are missing out on. At 1st Choice Movers, we specialize in commercial moving in Ramsey County and the entire state of Minnesota, and we know a number of tricks that can help make the transition as fast and stress-free as possible.
1. Evaluate the Situation
Prior to calling a professional moving company, conduct an analysis of your properties; old and new. Although a commercial moving company will be able to help you with this, your own analysis can give you an idea of what needs to be moved, in what order and where it needs to end up at the new location. Certain items that aren’t used very frequently can be moved sooner than others as they won’t disrupt current operation. Necessary equipment will have to stay in place until the day of the move.
2. Make a To-Do List
While a commercial moving company takes care of much of the move, a moving to-do list for every stage of the process can help you ensure no tasks are overlooked or items forgotten.
3. Keep Everyone Informed
Make sure your employees know the moving plans four to six months prior to moving day. Keep both employees and customers informed of what’s going on, and ensure there are as few disruptions to your business as possible.
4. Hire the Professionals
Commercial moving companies like ours are specially trained in taking care of a move quickly and efficiently without accidental damage to your property. For example, our commercial moving company will lay down protective floor coverings and rail guards to ensure there is no accidental damage to floors, walls or stairways. Hiring a commercial moving company also means you will have more time to focus on the core of your business and that your employees are comfortable with the moving process.
5. Ensure Safety
Hiring a commercial moving company is a matter of safety. With the professionals, you and your employees won’t have to worry about possible injuries that can come with trying to move a business on your own. We take care of all the heavy lifting and all of the other commercial moving grunt work for you.
These are just a few things you should consider before your business’ next big move.
