How much can you rely on staff during commercial moves?
Commercial moves are tedious but necessary to help your business grow. It's easy to keep your costs low by hiring the best company for the job. Unfortunately, some business owners attempt to save even more by giving their staff the brunt of the work. That's a bad idea that can cost everyone more than it's worth.
If you're wondering how much to ask of your staff during your business move, consider the following:
- Your employees have personal items at work.
- Your business relies on certain information to make profits every day.
- Certain items are restricted.
- Finally, your staffers aren't trained to pack items.
Pictures, clothing, tech devices, and other belongings sometimes get left at work for the sake of convenience. To prevent company and personal claims from intermixing, your employees should pack and move any of their personal property from your old location to your new one.
Back up your CRM, your payroll, and other programs. Store copies on removable media kept in possession of a trusted employee or store the information on the cloud.
Plants, chemicals, and perishable food items are just a few of the things you'll be expected to move on your own. Staff may not be able to help with all of them, so make sure you talk to someone at your moving company about alternatives. They may have special services to cover these goods.
As menial as the job might seem, packing and loading boxes for moving really is a skill honed through experience. Done poorly, it can lead to damage or personal injury. It can also affect the value protection plans available through your mover, so in most instances, it's best to let the professionals handle the job. It will likely be more affordable than you're expecting.
