How to Prepare for a Smooth Office Move
Unlike moving your home, moving a business can present unique challenges. After having recently moved our own office we here at Mooney’s would recommend the following tips:
Contact the United States Postal Service to change your address. This website is simple and easy to use. Discount coupons are also provided once registration is complete.
Call your phone service provider early! Phone service interruption is one of the biggest hassles when moving your office. Have a backup plan ready. We had all incoming calls routed to cells phones for a 48 hour period just to be safe.
Contact Peco to transfer electrical service. Don’t forget Aqua PA (or your local water company) to stop/start/cancel service.
Obtain at least two on-site written estimates from your local moving company.
Notify your customers:
We found Constant Contact to be a great way to send a large volume email blast to notify everyone of our address change.There are obviously more challenges than are mentioned here.
However the above topics will provide a good foundation for planning your move!
