Relocating Your Business? Here Are 5 Tips to Make It a Seamless Move

If the time has come to relocate your business, you most likely are experiencing feelings of excitement and worry. Excitement over the new space and the capabilities it will provide, and worry over the logistics of the entire endeavour. But with a few helpful tips, your business relocation can go a lot smoother than you probably think.

Here are the top five from our Calgary moving company.

1. Plan well in advance

Relocations usually take longer than first expected. That's why you'll want to plan your move at least six months in advance, longer if you're able to. This will give your business the time it needs to put in a successful transition plan and figure out the logistics of your relocation down to the smallest details. 

2. Effective communication

This not only goes for your employees but your customers and suppliers too. By having good communication with all three, you'll help avoid major disruptions to your business and get that all-important buy-in from your workers to help make the move and transition go more seamlessly. Communicate early and often, and try to be as open as you can with your employees, customers, and suppliers about the reason for the move and what they can expect along the way.

3. Only put one person in charge

Delegating a lead to oversee the major aspects of your relocation will set firm boundaries and allow your employees to know who's in charge and who they can direct their concerns and questions to. It will also allow for quicker decisions to be made and problems to be solved faster. Just remember this is a big undertaking and you should expect to have someone take on the daily responsibilities of the person you've put in charge of the relocation.


4. Consider staggering your move

Instead of moving everything and everyone all at once, consider a staggered approach to your business relocation. You can do this by maintaining possession of both your current and new space for a short period of time. This will help limit disruption to your business by being able to move inventory, machines, and staff in a staggered manner, allowing your company to minimize the impact your move has on your everyday workflow.

It can also help your customers and suppliers get acquainted with the new location and let you catch the ones who haven't heard about your move yet. 

5. Hire professional movers who are licensed and insured

The last piece to the puzzle is arguably the most important. You need to select a reputable moving company that has experience with business or commercial relocations. They will have all the moving supplies necessary to ensure it's a seamless process from start to finish, as well as the experience and expertise needed to tackle any last-minute challenges that may arise.

Make sure the movers are licensed and insured so your important infrastructure is covered should anything happen to it in transit or should it get lost. Just ask the moving company for copies of their policies and double-check they haven't lapsed.

You will also want to make sure they have the proper WCB and liability coverage in place in case any of their movers get injured during the relocation. Otherwise, your business could end up on the hook for their medical and rehabilitation expenses.
