You should begin the planning process at least 60 days prior to your actual moving day. This will give you time to change all of your letterhead and vendor information, and it will also give your customers time to adjust their records as well. While planning your move, consider which departments need to be moved first and up to speed in the new location as soon as possible. Make your arrangements based on getting those departments in place along with the changeover of utilities and communications services. Send out notices to all of the entities you do business with alerting them of your move, the date the move becomes effective and the new address.Appoint Two CoordinatorsYou will need someone to coordinate the packing of the current office and the smooth movement of all departments, and you will need someone to coordinate the incoming equipment and the process of getting everything and everyone in place in the new location. These should be two separate people. By having to separate people you allow each to focus on only one side of the move, and that can make it easier for them to coordinate moving day.Train Your EmployeesA memo telling your employees the new location address and when they should report for work there is not sufficient. Your clients and vendors will have questions about your move and you will need the salespeople and accounts payable staff to be able to answer them, or at least know where they can get clearer information. One of the keys to reducing the negative impact of a move on your business is good communication with your employees, your customers and your suppliers. Click here to view the article in its entirety.
