If you find you need to relocate your business you should have a plan. Part of that plan should be for office furniture removal.
[Due to recent events in many Northern California counties, and elsewhere, many businesses find themselves choosing to relocate or having to find a new location. Business continuity hinges on good planning. This post was originally published in February 2017.]
Sometimes an office relocation is necessary. But moving your office space with all the equipment, files, and office furniture can be a daunting task. In fact, it is no surprise that many businesses hire moving firms to take of everything.
However, a number of smaller businesses still opt to do it themselves. And, while this is certainly doable, when it comes to massive numbers of boxes or the larger furniture and office equipment, a plan is needed. And a significant part of that plan can include outsourcing the task.
So, how many people actually move every year?
According to the U.S. Census Bureau it is estimated that almost 40 million Americans relocate each year altogether. And according to the U.S. Postal Service, they process about 38 million change-of-address forms annually. However, there are no official records of business moves. But we all know that many businesses will move each year whether because they find a better lease deal, or they need to relocate due to expansion and having outgrown their current home.
A Guide For Planning Your Business Relocation
The specific needs of your move can vary widely from those of other businesses.
For example, if you are a manufacturer with stocks of inventory, machinery and raw materials, you will have a far different set of priorities and needs than, say, a real estate brokerage with little in the way of equipment to move.
But, regardless of the business type, every business has some common considerations. The following is a suggested checklist for relocating businesses or planning a move:
Remember to Update Your Business Information Online
Not only do you need to inform all your vendors and clients about your new address, you will want to change your NAP (Name, Address, Phone) information on your Google My Business page. Simply updating address information in your Google My Business listing won’t be sufficient, however.
You should take steps to update your business data on all of the directories and review sites you can think of including Yelp!, Yellow Pages, City Search, Local.com and Acxiom. Moz recommends visiting Infogroup, Localeze and Acxiom to check for out-of-date information as well as creating accounts on all major search engines to update your old listings.
In addition, you can use Google Map Maker to directly edit Google’s maps. Once your edit is approved, the new information will show up on all subsequent Google map searches.
