Here are a few of our experts’ tips and ideas on what you need to do when moving your business premises.
Finding the appropriate business premises
If you’ve only been working from a home office so far, then this move is going to be a huge step for you. If you have no experience at all, then perhaps hiring a professional property agent would be your wisest move. Even though you might have to pay them a hefty fee, at least you won’t end up buying the wrong property for your business.
If this isn’t your first time in buying commercial property, then you needn’t be as worried. By now you probably know what is vital for your business. Focus on those points. Don’t compromise like you did the previous time as this time you are more financially ready for this.
Hiring the correct help and budgeting them
Try not to just blindly fall into it. As you can’t really ask for friends’ help with this move and relocating, consider hiring an entire team of professional help to ensure that the whole operation happens glitch free. Select your “team members” and then consider the budget for it. Try to be smart about it. Some Eastern Suburb removalists in Sydney do more than just move your things. They handle the packing, moving, reinstalling and many more services. Hiring a service like that can be very economical for your business.
Don’t think that hiring Eastern Suburbs removalists completes your team. You need to hire a professional cleaning service as well, for both your old and new office.
Start publicizing your move
Unlike when you move your house, when you move your office and business, you need to let everyone related to your business know about your moving. Strategize how you get about doing this. You need to inform the people and businesses that is directly related to your business well in advance—like your vendors and suppliers. Infor them at least 1 to 3 months before your move. You can start changing the address in your website and business cards around 2 weeks before the move. Make sure to change the address of your business in every piece of marketing you use. Don’t forget that your business social media account can come in very useful here. Putting it up in social media is the simplest way to publicize your change of address with your clients.
