Moving your business is a big job, be it a local or long-distance move. How do you handle it smoothly and safely? Below are some little-known safety tips to follow:
Be the Early Bird
Planning is critical and it’s the key to moving success. You can create a plan yourself or involve your employees, which helps eliminate last minute panics. The key is to plan carefully and plan early. As soon as you decide to relocate, it’s time to start planning the move.
Choose Your Mover Carefully
When choosing a professional mover, be sure to choose an insured company, because accidents happen. To avoid them as much as possible, be sure the moving company has experience moving your type of business and the types of furniture, items, electronics, and equipment that you use to run your business.
Being organized prevents a moving nightmare. When everything is properly marked, it allows the efficient retrieval of things in the new location. You can do this by marking the packing boxes and including a brief description of the contents.
Make Computers and Cables Feel at Home
Computers are delicate and deserve proper handling. When possible, pack them in their manufacturer’s boxes. Be sure your movers know how to handle this type of equipment properly. Cables and cords should be appropriately labeled and stored in zip-locked bags. This will help keep the right cables with the right electronic equipment and can prevent a tangled mess when you get to your new location.
