ATLANTA, GA, May 28, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- If you are moving your business to a new location, it pays to be organized. The time it takes to move usually results in downtime for your company. The better you plan for the move, the faster you and your employees can get back to work. Here are some great tips from Atlanta moving company A.C. White on how to plan and organize your move.
Getting Your Business Ready for the Move
Once you've decided on a new location for your business, evaluate all of your office furniture and equipment and see if you will need to replace or scale them down to fit the new space. If you find that you have to get rid of furnishings and office equipment, consider donating the items. You'll get a tax write-off, and the office items will go to a good cause.
Before your move is also a great time to go through desks, filing cabinets and storage boxes to either purge or store items. Create a floor plan so that everyone will know what will go where in the new office.
Organizing Your Move
Call your Atlanta movers and make a reservation -- the earlier the better. If you wait too long, you may find that they are unavailable the day of your move. Also hire cleaners to clean your new space before you move in and to clean your old space after you move out.
Take care of utility service transfers and alert your post office to your change of address. Make changes to your letterheads, business cards, promotional materials and your website so you can limit confusion when you change locations. Send your vendors and clients a letter giving them your new address.
As boxes are packed, make sure that they are clearly marked so that your professional movers will know where they go in your new space. Electronics require special care when you are moving them. Make sure that all cords and peripherals are clearly marked. If you have an IT person, you may wish to have them on hand to supervise this part of the move.
Have one person in charge of the overall move. It will go much smoother if all questions are directed to the person who has the best overall knowledge of the event.
"Hiring a professional moving company is the best way to move a business. Your staff can stay focused on the running of your business and see to clients needs with as little downtime as possible. It also alleviates much of the stress and exhaustion that occurs on moving day," explains Pete White, Vice President of Sales for A.C. White Relocations.
Moving a business can be a big job, and you want to limit the disruptions to as few as possible. If you take the time to plan ahead and hire professional movers in Atlanta you will find that you and your employees are back to work in no time.
