Moving offices can be an anxiety-inducing time for any business owner. There is a lot to remember and even more to forget. That's why commercial moving services exist. Moving an office all by yourself is an insurmountably large task, and you're bound to make a few crucial mistakes. With commercial moving services, you will be able to focus more on the often forgotten aspects of moving offices. Here are a few things you must remember.

  1. Change Your Address
    Failure to submit a change of address form two weeks before your move can cause your mail to fall into the wrong hands. This is especially risky for businesses that work with many local vendors, so make sure to change the address sooner than later.

  2. Organize Your New Office
    Moving out of your old office is stressful enough, but showing up to work in a new place where you don't know where to put anything is even worse. Plan out where you'll put everything ahead of time and life will be much easier.

  3. Shred Old Documents
    Leaving old documents behind can be dangerous, especially if they reveal strategies or new product innovation. Make sure your old office is spotless before shutting the door for the last time.

  4. Reduce Clutter
    You might want to just pack everything you have and move it to another place, then sort it all out later, but that would be wasting an excellent opportunity. Purging the office of items not worth keeping can cut down on clutter and streamline the moving process.

  5. Change Your Social Media Information
    If you remembered to change your mailing address, don't forget to change your address on your website and social media platforms. In the web design world, your NAP information -- name, address, phone number -- is essential to online success and local search engine rankings. If you confuse one potential customer, you've lost one potential sale. Keep your location information consistent across all platforms for clarity.

Commercial moving services make all of the above much more doable. Having a furniture delivery company handle all of the physical labor will give you the much needed time to remember what you'd otherwise forget.
