A Manager's Guide to Business Relocation

Relocating your business, whether it's to smaller or larger premises can be incredibly stressful. It requires a huge amount of planning and organisation, from the packing of the boxes to the transportation of your possessions. You have to plan the move so as to give minimum disruption to your workforce, whilst ensuring the move is carried out as efficiently as possible. This article will give you some helpful tips and guidance as to how to make sure your move goes as smoothly as possible.

Choose your removals company
When planning your move, you need to be sure that the removals company you choose to hire fully understands your needs and aims. Relocating your business means moving a lot of expensive and potentially crucial material, from computers to paperwork. Here at Swan Removals And Storage, we offer a dedicated, professional and affordable commercial removals service that caters for business moves both large and small scale.

Planning your move
Moving your business isn't as simple as booking a removal company, putting all your things in boxes and then putting them in the back of a lorry. Commercial removals especially take a lot of planning and discussion before you can actually begin the move itself. At Swan Removals And Storage, a designated project manager will discuss your plans and requirements with you thoroughly before moving. This includes the layout of your premises, current and future, to enable your relocation to run as smoothly as possible.

Storage
During your move, you may find that you need an interim storage solution for certain items. Not everything can be transported at once, maybe for space or security reasons. Whether its computers, chairs, tables or important paperwork, Swan Removals And Storage offer a secure storage service that allows you to store your belongings with complete peace of mind. Our storage solutions are available for both long and short term hire, and you can rest assured that your belongings will be stored with the utmost safety and security.

Insurance
Making sure that your belongings are fully insured before you begin any relocation process is absolutely vital. While removal companies will take the utmost care and precision when moving your possessions, there is always a chance of damage or loss, and you need to be totally covered for that eventuality. Before you begin your move, check with your insurance provider to see exactly what you are and are not covered for.
