off Things Not To Do When Moving A Business

Frank Goley to Business Services  

Are you moving your business to a new location? Here are the things that you should absolutely avoid doing during the moving process:

Put Employees in Charge of Transportation

This is the biggest no-no when it comes to relocating a business. You may have employees that you can rely on to crunch the accounting numbers, run an advertisement or solve customer problems. However, the same employees are not reliable for getting your inventory and equipment to the new office space. Why? Because that’s not their job. When moving your business, call in professional relocations companies in Dubai to handle the hard work of actually moving your entire business to an entirely new place.

Not Hiring a Lawyer First

When you move your business to a new location, you are expected to comply with the laws and regulations of the new jurisdiction. For example, if you are moving to a new city, there might be building codes that you have to comply with. If you are moving business to a new state, you might have to file your income taxes differently than before. Likewise, business and commercial laws differ from place to place. You cannot plead ignorance before a court of law. Therefore, before you make the move, hire a legal team to handle all this on behalf of your business.

Not Investing in Interior Design

Redesigning the new office space to suit your convenience, tastes and brand is not a waste of money. In fact, you might need to do so to stand out from the previous occupants, especially if they were another business. So, call the relocations companies and ask them for assistance with revamping old office space to suit your brand new needs as a business. Spend some money on a good interior designer to make the new space befit your business requirements as best as possible.

Forgetting to Update the Address

This may sound like a silly mistake to make, but most businesses forget to update their address with the new one in a timely manner. Most only do so several weeks after moving into the new place. If you delay updating your address, you will lose customers. Returning customers, when they can’t find you at the old place, might think you have permanently closed shop. Therefore, don’t forget to announce that you have moved online and in-store without delay.

Once you have moved to the new office, don’t ignore the neighbors, businesses or otherwise. Be nice to everyone and be appealing to new customers with good looks and charm.
