Everything You Need to Know About Timing Your Corporate Move

June 14, 2022 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsCorporate Moving

When it comes to a big move, time is everything. The right timing is crucial to a corporate move being a success because a move can affect the work environment, productivity, and overall profit. If a move is not planned with timing in mind, it can be costly for the company and negatively impact the company—this is why it’s essential to understand how to best time your corporate move. 

5 Tips to Help Time Your Corporate Move 

When you run a big business, it’s possible that you may have to relocate at some point. However, a relocation can be a significant disruption to daily operations. A corporate move can cost a lot of time and money that may distract from other important areas of your business. It’s important to think about timing to help minimize the impact and make the process go as smoothly as possible. Here are five tips to keep in mind when timing your corporate move. 

1. Move Mid-Week

To help keep your employees involved and avoid them becoming overwhelmed or upset with the move, remember that weekends are important to them. While you may be tempted to plan the move for the weekend, if you need employee help, it’s better to plan it during the week when they know they’re needed at work. You may be afraid that moving will interfere with work productivity, but this is why it’s important to plan in advance. The more time you spend making sure everything is timed perfectly for your move, the better chance you’ll avoid distributions to business productivity. 

2. Plan for a Mid-Month Relocation

Most businesses plan their move at the beginning or end of the month, but this can sometimes make a move more hectic. For one, clients or customers may need more access to business operations during these periods, and secondly, moving services are often booked during these times. However, if you move mid-month, moving services are likely to have more availability, and you may have more wiggle room in workload to execute the move. 

3. Avoid Working Outside of Business Hours

It’s beneficial to move during business hours to avoid extra costs such as overtime pay and other challenges that come with finding a moving company that offers after-hour commercial moving services.

4. Aim for an Off-Season Move

The recommended time for moving is between October and April because corporate moving companies have more availability during this time. Since this is their off-season, they may also offer more affordable prices. However, it’s important to keep in mind that winter weather may affect your move. 

5. Avoid Summer Moves

Understandably, if the corporate move requires employees to relocate, they may want to avoid doing it during the school season to prevent disrupting their children’s schooling. However, commercial moving companies know this, and it can be hard to book their services. Additionally, they may have higher rates during this time.
