Tips for Planning a Retail Move
February 22, 2023 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsCorporate Moving
Operating a retail store is a lot of work, and packing up and relocating a retail store can be exhausting. No matter the reason, planning a retail move is often time-consuming, energy-consuming, and overall overwhelming, especially if you are attempting to do it alone. You want to make sure the general workflow goes unscathed while simultaneously meeting the moving requirements imposed by your old and new locations.
Balancing all of these plans while also maintaining and operating your retail businesses’ regular workflow can cause unnecessary stress and hustling. To maximize your time, CRS Moving & Storage is here to help. As a commercial moving and storage company specializing in the relocation of retail businesses and office spaces, we have everything you need every step of the way.
4 Tips for Planning Your Retail Move
If you foresee a big retail company move in your future, the four following tips can help mitigate stress:
This can seem like an obvious tip, but staying meticulous with your planning and scheduling is key to a successful move. Planning ahead doesn’t just mean marking the move dates on your calendar. It means ensuring everything is handled before those dates and is ready for when the time comes to begin the actual relocation process.
Will everything be properly packaged on time? What will you use to do the packaging? Writing out a list of questions like that is a good way to ensure everything is answered and taken care of prior to the big dates.
Know What You Want Liquidated
Oftentimes, moving can act as a spring cleaning of sorts. Being obligated to go through all of your business’s belongings forces you to take a second look at what you have. Can you picture this desk in your new location? If not, we offer liquidation services in addition to the regular moving process and storage.
Liquidation includes recycling, selling, and donating any goods that are no longer needed or usable.
Keep Your Staff Updated
A move to a new location is a big deal, even if it’s just across the street. Keeping your staff constantly updated about the dates and times of the move ensures everyone continues to work efficiently and undisturbed. If your staff is concerned about their jobs, it may disrupt the workflow and slow things down.
Being upfront about the relocation and ensuring everyone that it is being taken care of is imperative to a healthy and happy workplace.
