2. Purge your old premises
While you probably have the equipment, furniture, and machinery you need to relocate to a new place, you also have stuff you want to get rid of. Just make sure that you have a replacement at the new location.
We recommend purging the unwanted items late in the process as it’ll make the transition from one premise to another much easier.
You may also want to get rid of paper documents if you’re not bringing them with you. You’ll need to do this according to data privacy regulations, so properly purging and destroying them is vital.
3. Update your details
Once you’ve finally moved locations, you might think all of your work is done.
You’ll also need to make sure you update your location details in various places.
Business bank accounts, business registrations, mail delivery, and your website are some of the more notable parts of this.
While some of these may be obvious, it’s easy to overlook a few places where you should update your location details.
Think of everyone that needs your location details and ensure they’re given the new address.
At the same time, update any areas that include your location details and other contact information.
The earlier you get this done, the better.
