There are a vast amount of reasons as to why you would choose to relocate your business, and it’s a choice that is never taken lightly because of the loss of money intake during the process of moving. In this article, is some tips on how you can easily relocate your business, without losing out on as much income as you would have thought.
The first step that you should take once you have chosen a new location, is to send a member of staff with some of the equipment that you use over to the new premises to begin setting up, so that when the day of moving comes, they can continue to work and generate some money while the big move is happening. This will give any existing clients a chance to continue receiving service from you, and also pose the opportunity for you to generate interest in your business from new clients.
Planning the final day that your business is open in your current location will allow you to generate a massive buzz from locals in the area. Sticking some closing down signs up in the window and sending out invitations for people to join you on your last day of business there will be sure to make you some sales. Creating a special one day offer for discounts on your products and services will also entice customers in. You could even offer drinks and nibbles for people to help themselves to.
Once your final day is over, you will need to begin packing the remainder of your premises up to be moved. Hiring a local trucking company might make this process easier, as they can help pack inventory and move your items to your new premises. Don’t forget to label your boxes so that when you arrive at the new location, that you can unpack the most important things first!
Getting everything set up in your new premises might be something that you’ve been dreading, due to a different layout, or maybe even the fact that you will have to renovate the place a little bit. A good idea is to plan this out beforehand so that when you arrive, you can get straight to work on making your new location perfect for business.
On the first day of business in your new premises, it’s a wise idea to take on the same sort of idea as your final day and your old location. Generate a buzz within the local community and invite people to come and see what you’re about. As expected, offering a limited time discount for new customers will be sure to drive people through your door.
As you can see, relocating your business doesn’t have to be a stressful as imagined, and you don’t necessarily have to lose out on much money either, even if you are putting promotional sales on items, and missing out on a day or two of sales. Whatever your reason is for wanting to relocate, good luck relocating your business!
