Moving is never fun, but moving a small business—whether across town or across the country—can be downright disastrous if you don’t prepare well. Here are some things to keep in mind before you make your move:
Make sure you schedule the move for a slow period in your business. Hire computer and phone specialists to set up equipment in the new office before anything else. This way you will not lose valuable incoming calls.
When packing the old office, talk with an accountant about what you are able to throw away and what you should keep.
Notify employees they will be assisting in the move. That way they will dress in appropriate attire as well as be cognizant of client needs during this time.
