Commercial moves are some of the most complex types of moves, as they require extra attention-to-detail, time and preparation. Fortunately, the easiest way to ensure a successful commercial move is to be aware of the common mistakes people make when relocating their business, so you can avoid following in suit.
Insufficient or Last Minute Planning
The more time you have to plan and execute your office relocation, the better your move will be. Unfortunately, many people underestimate just how complex a commercial move is. One common misconception that results in many discrepancies is the belief that commercial moves are similar to residential moves. However, commercial moves have an abundance of different moving parts that you don’t even have to think about with a residential move. Failing to consider these tasks when creating your office relocation plan will leave you scrambling for time, effort and possibly even funds.
So, give yourself ample time to plan your commercial move. It is more convoluted than you think which is precisely why many business owners opt for full-service moving packages when relocating their business.
Being Unaware of the Legalities
Don’t start loading the moving truck up just right. It’s imperative that you take the extra steps to go over the legalities involved with a commercial move. Not only will this ensure a smooth relocation process but it may also save you from costly damages in the future. So, do your research particularly if you’re moving to a different state or country. The moving laws change from state-to-state, and it’s crucial that you have all proper documents and understanding of what can or cannot be transported across state lines.
With BMS Moving & Storage, our specialists are well-versed in the moving laws and legalities and will be more than happy to set you up with the right information and plan to avoid any run-ins with the law.
Failing to Look at the IT Relocation
You found a great new office space and have signed on the dotted line, only to realize upon arrival that the IT relocation is ineffective. Unfortunately, you’ve already signed the lease and will have to make do which can be costly and even detrimental to your business. This is a common mistake people make when doing a commercial move.
The good news is that it’s easy to avoid by carefully planning out your IT relocation and ensuring that your new office location suits your business needs.
Going With The Cheapest Moving Option
It can be tempting to cut corners and save some money when doing a commercial move. However, doing so often results in discrepancies, damages and/or downtimes that end up costing you more in the long run. So, always consider your options when selecting a moving company and never make your decision based solely on price.
