Moving is never fun, but moving a small business—be it 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 down time in your business. Hire computer and phone specialists to set up equipment in the new office first. This way you will not lose valuable incoming calls.
When packing the old office, talk with an accountant about what you can throw away and what you should keep.
Notify employees so they will dress appropriately and be aware of client needs during the move.
