When moving a business, there are many things to consider. One is finding ways to minimize downtime. Every day that your business can’t operate as normal could be revenue lost.

Minimizing downtime is a must, and there are steps you can take to do just that. Behrens Moving Company has completed thousands of business moves, and we’ve put together our top tips for getting your business back up and running quickly.

Map Out a Timeline

Some business owners don’t think much about their move until shortly before moving day. That can be an expensive mistake. Instead, start creating a relocation timeline as soon as you know a move is coming. This can allow you to start taking care of some tasks, such as downsizing and packing items you don’t need frequently.

The other benefit of having a timeline mapped out is that it will minimize the chances of some tasks being forgotten.

Complete Space Planning In Advance

In an ideal situation, the movers will bring your furniture and other items to your new space and will have a plan about exactly where everything is meant to go.

Space planning speeds up the process of setting up at your new location, so you and your employees can get back to work more quickly.

Choose a Reliable Moving Company

One of the best things you can do to minimize downtime is to choose a trusted commercial moving company. Professional movers will help you with pre-move planning and take care of the details. If you choose full-service moving, they will take care of tasks like furniture installation, debris removal, and other things that could prevent you from getting your business back to normal.

If time is of the essence, you should utilize your movers’ full-service options as this will free up your employees from having to deal with moving-related tasks.
