Whether you are moving your business headquarters, office, or store across town or across the state, a little organization goes a long way. A move for something as important as your business shouldn't be done haphazardly. The more organized and planned your move is, the more smoothly it will go. It's important to begin planning weeks before the actual move, not days.
SiteBox Storage, has been helping its customers stay organized since it started in the portable storage business in 1998. To help you plan your move, we've created a simple checklist. Not all steps may apply to your unique situation. But this should help you as you get ready to move.
Yes, planning should start at least two months before the move. Very few moves are spur of the moment. But many times, business owners and staff put things off to the last minute.
You're still a few weeks out, so pre-planning is essential. It's time to get the supplies you'll need for transporting your office supplies and equipment.
You're starting to get closer to the big day. It's time to wrap up any loose ends that would slow down the transition process.
If you've been following your moving plan, you shouldn't be too stressed as the date approaches. However, go over your lists and take stock of anything not completed yet. There are other last-minute items to attend to.
If you've taken care of everything in advance, you should be ready to go. It's going to be an exciting event as you leave the old location and set up shop in the new. Do a thorough walk-around in the old office or store before you lock the doors. It's surprising how many things hide in corners, often essential items you'll need.
Then, celebrate and head on down the road. And give yourself a pat on the back for making sure your transition to the new location was well-planned and executed.
