There must be a valid reason why you are doing this. You have been running a successful business in this city for a long time. What could have possibly triggered you to change its location? Well, that is for you to know. The responsibility of the removal is just to make sure that you reach your new destination and settle in on time.
Whether you are moving your business for the first time or you have done it before, do consider the following pointers before you take the big step:
1. Tax-Related Considerations
The biggest reason that any commercial undertaking would consider moving their office to another location is tax savings. If the city you are currently doing your business in is not friendly in terms of taxation, you might be able to save thousands of dollars in another location. It might impact your overall cost significantly and it could turn out to be a very intelligent decision. Some businesses may stand to receive a lot more tax credits if they locate in a different city or state within the same country. If this is the case with your industry, you should take this step right away.
2. Moving Costs
Moving costs are another factor that you should consider. If the entire budget of your company gets shaken, this move might not be a good decision. However, if you are able to find an affordable packing and moving company, going through with this decision might not be a bad idea. The key here is to be able to locate a dependable and affordable business relocation professional that can help you in moving your office and assist you in setting up your new commercial space without having to ask twice. They should also be willing to provide you will loading and unloading services at no extra cost. So yes, your entire moving budget is going to determine whether you can move out of the city in the first place or not.
3. Possibilities For Growth
Leave everything aside. What are your growth possibilities if you choose to relocate to a different city or state within the country? If you have thought this through and if you have enough research studies, analyses, and other statistics to support your decision, it might be a great idea to relocate to another city. However, if you are not so certain about any such growth possibilities or even about being able to tap into a new market, making such a move might not be a good idea.
For example, if you are a shipping company moving to a city with more ports and better transport infrastructure, it is going to be beneficial for your growth. However, the same does not apply to a software development company that can work even remotely and deliver upon all its deadlines on time.
4. Impact On Your Customers
Is this move going to have an impact on your customers? Do you think that you are likely to lose your existing consumer base if you move your office? Do you think that setting up your business in a new location might be equivalent to starting from scratch? Will your brand be able to survive in a different market with a completely distinct competitive landscape? These are a few questions that you need to ask yourself before you move your office to another city or state.
Moving a small-scale office from one location to another is a little easier and a lot less complicated. But remember, when it comes to moving a large-scale enterprise, the logistics are going to change drastically. You might want to cut down on your logistics cost by doing away with a major junk of your already existing furniture and office equipment.
In many situations, investing in new setups for your office once you have relocated turns out to be more affordable. You will have to figure this out by consulting your finance team.
6. Leasing Options
It could be that you are leaving a perfectly fine owned space. You might want to rent it out or give it up for lease. It might take a little longer than expected for you to find the right tenant for your old property and also to find a good location for your new office in your new destination. So yes the availability of leasing and renting options is also going to impact your decision to move and relocate your business.
Unless you can find the ideal location for your new office, signing any contracts or agreements or even taking up a new project is not going to be practical.
7. Accessibility For Every Employee
This is true for the new location of your office. Is it going to be accessible for everyone in your company? If you have decided to move to a new location within the same city, this question is highly appropriate. Moving your office to a different location is only practical and advised if it makes commuting for everyone easier.
8. The Reputation Of The Moving Company
Let’s say that you have decided to move to a new location. Whether it is a local move or an interstate move, how can you forget to gauge the reputation of the moving company? Office relocation becomes easier and more practical if you have enough knowledge about the office moving company. Are they the experts in commercial moving? Do they have a practical business relocation plan? Do they provide free-of-cost loading and unloading services? What do their reviews and testimonial say about their conduct and professionalism? Find the answers to these questions before you hire a packing and moving company in the city.
9. Storage Facilities
Last but not the least, does the moving company provide you with easy storage facilities? Do they have individual self-storage units in their package? Because moving your office is not going to be a day’s task for a lot of enterprises, they might end up feeling the need for storage facilities for more than a day. Removal and setup of several machines and office equipment are not that simple. Some critical components need to be moved together while others can be reassembled separately and then joined together later. So yes, this is another factor you must consider before you finalize the move.
So remember these factors before you start moving your business to a new location. Refer to this list whenever you feel lost.
