An Toronto office relocation can be a stressful time. After all, there is a tremendous amount of planning to do, decisions to make—and, all the while, you need to continue to meet the ongoing demands of your business.
With so much going on, it can be very easy to overlook a detail or make a tiny mistake that can end up biting you in the end.
In this article, we’re going to offer you a couple tips to help make sure you have all your bases covered.
We can’t stress how important it is to make sure that customers, supplies, and important shipments still find you at your new location. While this might seem obvious, the list of people and businesses who need to be informed can get pretty extensive. Make sure that you have that list complied well in advance, and be sure that they are informed of your move well ahead of time.
You will also want to make sure that your stationery is ready to go before you move as well. Anything that has your address printed on it should be re-printed ahead of time, including business cards, envelopes, letterhead, packaging, and so forth.
You may also wish to give your employees the new business cards a few weeks before the move, so that they can hand them out well in advance to offer the opportunity to ‘hype up’ the new location for their clients and contacts.
Any customers or clients who visit your location should know of your move well ahead of time. You may even wish to print out some promotional materials that include a map to your new space, photographs of the building, and perhaps a list of benefits that the new space will offer them.
Just remember: When you’re telling a client about your move, always make sure that you keep it positive. Don’t mention any slowdowns or work stoppages in your general literature, and only mention it to individual clients if absolutely necessary.
To ensure that your move doesn’t cause any unnecessary slowdowns, always make sure that you use a professional, experienced, reputable Toronto office furniture relocation service such as Choice Office Installations.
