This may includes not only your staff and employees but also your customers, vendors and suppliers who work with your business on a day to day basis.
We’ve put together a few simple steps on how to get your commercial removals in order. So take these simple steps and be on your way to a well-executed and efficient moving operation!
1 – Start Planning and Scheduling
As soon as you know that you need to move, start planning and scheduling a timeline for how things will happen. From when the packers and movers will arrive, to how much downtime you can afford. Stock and produce and meetings and other miscellaneous arrangements need to be worked out to accommodate any disruptions that might happen through the removals in Sydney.
2 – Inform your staff
Your staff may have to work out their workloads to accommodate the downtime too. Different responsibilities may require different resources which may or may not be affected by removals as well. At the same time, it’s a great way to let your employees know that you value their participation and contribution by keeping them informed and even involved in this milestone for your business!
3 – Inform your customers
If you are running a business which is based on time-sensitive deliveries or services, it’s important to let clients and customers know beforehand if there will be any delays in the weeks when you are finalising the move. Clients want to be organized as much as the business does!
4 – Getting back to work
It’s very important that the relevant parties are informed of your moving dates so that the internet, water, electricity, gas and other utilities can be arranged to start and stop at the new location and the old respectively. Ideally, we want to make sure that there is a good overlap of the necessities so that once all the physical things taken care of that everybody can get right back on the job without any hiccups!
