COMMERCIAL RELOCATION OR MOVING
Transporting large businesses constitutes transporting many workers, a lot of equipment, large furniture, and income fluctuations during the move.
Many business owners tend to avoid, as much as possible, frequent moves due to the complexity of the process. However, sometimes you can’t avoid moving, especially when the business grows.
Large business transport is a service offered mainly by big moving companies. These companies employ mover crews, heavy tools and professional equipment, since large business transport is a big operation, often consisting of heavy furniture transportation and heavy machinery. It’s important to compare between several large moving companies to make sure they are able to transport your equipment.
TIME = MONEY
This equation is significant for large business transport. The moving period produces significant changes in the business income balance, and the business availability for customer service.
The less time the business transport takes, the easier it is to return to a normal work routine. Problems occur when unexpected issues come up, resulting in a longer than expected process, which in turn delays work routine and disrupts current income.
To avoid this and to minimize the chance for mishaps, an organized approach should be taken. First, you should hire a moving company that specializes in large business transport, and make sure it is propped with all necessary tools for your move.
Second, moving schedule should be planned as accurately as possible, to the smallest of details. List transported equipment, how much manpower to use, time allotted to each employee for packing and unpacking, and prepare your employees in accordance.
Coordinate with the moving company the schedules for loading, transporting and unloading required, and make sure to know how many crew members the company sends you, to make a realistic estimate.
Prepare the new business location; make sure to set up infrastructure and that all required equipment is available, in order to begin work immediately after the move.
Allot some workers, who do not participate in the move, to continue working in the business as usual; whether for customer service or other tasks related to your business you do not want to stop during the move.
One last important thing, take into account the cost of the process. Meaning, beyond the moving cost and employee expenses, take into account the potential economic loss and business changes you might sustain, and try to make up a plan that will minimize the gap created during the moving period.
