Business relocation might seem like the planning and moving day is all there is to it; however, there is also the office post-move, which can also require a few things from you. Just because you have undergone business relocation and may feel as though you are done with it, there are a few things you need to ensure are done.
The first is to place a ‘we have moved’ sign at your old office. This sign is only allowable if the space is still empty. In other words, if you leased the space and the leasing company already leased it to a new business, you might not be able to place the sign at the old location. This is fine, because there are other ways to let consumers know that you have completed your office move. A ‘we have moved’ virtual sign can be helpful. This online website sign at least lets consumers know that you are still around and that while the physical location has moved, you do have a new address.
Celebrating your move with employees is imperative. It helps to remind them that you care about them and appreciate all their help during the move. You will also want to have a moving party for some of your best consumers. Showing loyalty will help keep these consumers coming to your new store. This also helps you to find new loyal consumers for your new location. Your voicemail greeting will need to be changed to help consumers learn about the new change of address.
