Moving your business can be risky. If not done properly, you can lose very valuable time that can cost more than necessary. But if approached correctly, moving your business can be the best thing you’ve done for your company!
Make Some Donations
If you plan on purchasing new office furniture or equipment at your new location, consider donating your old stuff. Not only will you decrease what’s moving, but you’ll be helping out a local charity.
Hire Ocean Moving and Storage
So this is our little plug, but we wouldn’t be here if we didn’t believe we made a difference. Hiring us for our moving services in Miami means you can count on us for packing, moving, and storage anywhere locally in Miami to anywhere in our contiguous 48 states. As professional movers, we know the tips for efficient, safe moving. You can continue to focus on your business while we focus on the move.
Mark Your Boxes
If you elect to work with us for your moving services but choose to pack your own business, you can number boxes for different rooms and stations to ensure we get your stuff in the right spot at the new place. The more organized, the better!
Wrangle Computer Cables
Whether your business has one computer or one thousand, we recommend keeping all cords with the correct computer. Instead of leaving them plugged in, place them all in a baggie and pack them together with the computer. This prevents any tangled mess when unpacking.
Carefully Wrap Electronics
Computers, printers, fax machines, and many other office electronics are susceptible to damage during a move. Instead of simply packing the electronics into a cardboard box, invest in some bubble wrap or moving blankets to individually package each device. Take care not to place tape onto your computer monitor or printer screen; however, it’s important to make sure all devices are properly protected. Ocean Moving & Storage uses extreme caution to ensure your fragile devices are handled with care, but you can never be too careful in preparation.
While we all take care to move safely, we can’t guarantee everyone else on the road has the same precautions. Therefore we offer moving insurance to protect your goods. You don’t want your business to suffer at the possibility of danger. Check out our three different moving insurance options here.
Update Contact Information
In the months prior to moving, update your contacts with your new information. Communication is key for a successful business move. Whether you are staying local in Miami or moving all the way across the country, your customers deserve to be alerted. You don’t want them to think you just picked up and left one day! Have business stationery, business cards, and other important documents printed with your new contact information so you may resume business with correct, new information right away. Don’t forget to update your website!
Make A List And Check It Twice!
Just like Santa, it’s important to make a list and check it twice. This checklist should include all things to prepare for moving, to do during moving, and to unpack after the move is complete. While the largest amount of time is spent preparing to move, it’s important to account for all stages of the move, especially during and immediately after when your business is likely not in operation. A checklist is a simple way to make sure everyone is on the same page for a seamless transition.
