Here are a few final tips to keep in mind as you pack up and move your business to a new space:
9. Notify people and update your contact information. You will need to put your new address on everything from stationary, to business cards, to your website. The first and most important thing you should update is your website (this is also usually the cheapest and easiest). You will also need to notify you bank, creditors, the post office, etc. Notify any clients that you bill, so that they can update their own contact information and send payment to your correct address. It is also a good idea to spend a little time looking for referral directories online that your business might be listed in so you can update that contact information as well. In order to make sure you cover everything, create a list of everyone you do business with and all of the places you advertise to make sure you do not miss something important.
10. Make a checklist. A good way to stay on top of the whole process is to make a checklist of all of the things you need to do for the move. Cover everything from tasks to do beforehand, necessary supplies, and a plan for unpacking (remember that putting your business back together will be a time-consuming process as well). Include things like double checking at least a week before you move about internet and phone service in your space, that signs are up, permits are ready, and other little things that can be lost in the shuffle of packing and moving. Remember that it is almost unavoidable that something is going to get overlooked, go wrong, or get lost in a move, so try not to worry about every little problem—just handle each one as it arises!
