You Can Move Your Business Without Sacrificing Productivity - Here's How

The news that you may have to relocate your company can be jarring at first. It is easy to assume that your business will come to a screeching halt. However, it is possible to move while still staying productive, you just need to have a plan. Here at Platinum Realty, we know how important it is to move somewhere new without completely disrupting your work, so we have some tips for how you can make the process as easy as possible.


Communicate With Your Team Ahead of Time

Once you are dedicated to a new location, you need to talk to your employees. The discussion you have depends on how far away you are moving. If the move won’t radically affect the employee’s commute, then the conversation will be relatively simple. However, if you are moving to a new state, then you need to give your employees an advanced warning so they can move or make other arrangements.

You need to know how many employees are coming with you. If it isn’t enough, then you will need to hire new people, and you want to do that before you relocate so the staff is ready to go and you don’t have to halt your business as they get up to speed.

It is also a wise idea to inform your vendors of the switch so they can make the appropriate adjustments on their end as well.


Make Registering Your LLC Easy With a Formation Service

If your company is an LLC, then you will need to follow certain steps to ensure that your business stays in compliance from start to finish, especially if you are relocating to a new state. For instance, if you plan to move and start an LLC in Missouri, then the first step you will need to take is to dissolve the LLC you have in the current state, and then you will need to register it in Missouri.

Remember that every state will have its own guidelines, so you need to research to ensure that you stay out of legal hot water. It can be costly to hire lawyers, so consider setting it up yourself or hiring a formation service because they can ensure that you are in full compliance so you can focus on staying productive at work.

Update Your Online Accounts

The best way to ensure that your customers will stick with you during your transition is by updating your website and social media accounts so that your customers know that the move is coming and they know where to reach you when the time comes. Put a banner on the front page of your website to advertise the change. You should also put an announcement on your social media pages. You can even spruce it up by giving out a coupon or advertising a sale to get them excited about visiting you in your new space.

Hire Professionals to Move Your Business

It is a wise idea to bring in professional movers to transport your belongings to the new place. If you do it yourself, then it could take a lot longer, and you will almost certainly lose productivity. Research moving companies ahead of time and have them ready to go on moving day and make the transition quick and painless. It is also a good idea to ask your tech team what needs to be done to get your company connected and ready to go and then create a plan for a seamless transition.

As you can see, there are several steps that you can take to move your company from point A to point B without losing a beat. Consider hiring professional movers, updating your website, and hiring a formation service to launch your LLC, and you’ll be back in business in no time.
