It’s normal to start small when building your business up from scratch. After all, as a beginner to the business world, as a self-made businessman and entrepreneur, your beginning no doubt has a rough start. Low capital, small production and many other factors can be the reason for you to choose your current business premise.
But after being in business for a period of time, and after beginning to see success, it’s possible that you realize the importance of expanding your business. It’s inevitable after all. And with the expansion, perhaps you’ve also come to realize that your current business premise is no longer adequate for you and your business.
We know that moving business premises can be messy for first-timers; so here are our tips on how to go about it in the least stressful way.
Concentrate on moving the important things first.
Admittedly, no matter how professional a moving company you use, damages and lost things are inevitable. To make sure that important documents and expensive machines don’t get lost, damaged, or fall into the wrong hands, oversee moving these personally. It’s also a good idea to move it prior to moving everything else.
The packing and the moving.
Even though it might be more cost friendly to pack and move your company without professionals, it will definitely take longer to do so. Time is very important in the business world. Every day that you spend on your moving and settling, your company faces a loss. This is apart from the inconveniences that your clients and customers have to face. Use professional packers and movers to make sure that this part of the move happens in an organized and timely fashion.
Make sure your new building is ready.
It’s always a good idea to make sure that your new building is ready for your move. If you have the time and the resources, try to get at least half your office and staff settled in early. Using professional help here is also advisable. Most moving companies also offer the service of reinstalling, so make sure to ask your mover about it. Apart from this, a maintenance company Dubai can also be used for all those leftover odd jobs.
Clean as you go.
If you plan on selling the premise after moving out of it, then it’s definitely wise to clean as you go. If you plan on hiring professionals to do your packing, moving and reinstalling; add one more the list. Professional cleaning companies in Abu Dhabi and their services can be very useful here. It might seem like an unwanted cost, but trust us, you don’t need the stress of cleaning up your old building while you’re struggling to get your new building settled.
If you’ve moved before, you’d know how cranky your staff can be when their personal belongings get lost during the move. To avoid this unwanted stress, and to cut down the cost of moving slightly, ask your staff to move their belongings personally. This way, even if they do misplace or damage them, it won’t be the company’s fault…!
