Tips To Prepare Your Business Relocation Checklist

Oct 8, 2007
In order to relocate your business successfully, not only do you require a well-defined plan of action, but also a way in which you can keep track of that plan. Business relocation can, more often than not, a complicated process and in order to restore order and account for everything, a checklist can be extremely useful.

Even professional relocation agents can make the logistics of a business relocation plan very complicated to handle if a thorough checklist is absent. Some points should be kept in mind when it comes to the checklist, and the rest of this article is devoted to outlining these points.

Firstly, your business relocation checklist must have a definite structure which categorizes each part of the POA in various steps or phases that define a certain progressive pattern. Each phase should outline different activities to be carried out. It need not always be arranged in an inflexible schedule but used as a rough outline stating what the final goal of that particular phase is, and moving towards a final destination.

The details of each phase and the activity in that phase depend on the type of business that is being relocated. Having said that, however, there are always some basic aspects that will apply to many of these cases. No matter what the specific details of your checklist are, these facts will always apply and in this order

a. determine your needs
b. contact a group that will assist with moving the business
c. plan the physical move
d. prepare a new site
e. a flexible, regular update of the checklist to cope with changes in the budget
f. installation of essential materials such as internet and telephone connections
g. new office and residence space
h. confirmation of all inspections and certifications

Whether your business is private or corporate, your relocation will follow the same basic parameters.

Another major factor to keep in mind while preparing the checklist is accounting for time. According to the different phases allocated to different activities, a time-frame may be allotted. Some items might take up to weeks or months to arrange while some will take considerably lesser time. A time frame will take care of deadline based work schedules and also facilitate greater coordination among the business and other parties.

Particularly if relocation on a large scale is required for the owners, employees and their families, the checklist should have details accounting for the lives of all these people. Practical needs such as schooling and housing must be addressed, and time frames allotted on the list.

Ensuring that these points are incorporated in the business checklist will bring greater order to the relocation and many significant business necessities will not be disregarded. They will all be on your checklist to be reviewed.
