The Essential Small Business Move-In Checklist

Read Time: 4 Minutes

Intro

Whether you are just starting out or have been in business for a while, it’s always an exciting time when you move into an official business location. But with a brick-and-mortar location comes new responsibilities, so it’s important to plan the move effectively. We’ve included a checklist of things to keep in mind to ensure a seamless transition:

Signage

People won’t know you exist without the proper signage. Not only does it help direct people to your business, it is also a great wait to raise awareness and increase brand exposure. Signs.com has everything you need from banners to window decals.

Technology

Technology is an important aspect of business success. Reliable server capability and efficient internet speed can have a great impact on productivity. Setting up a VolP communication system through a company like Ooma is cost-effective solution to make voice calls using the internet instead of a traditional phone line.

Inventory

If you are selling a product, having a good inventory management system helps maximize potential sales. As a primary source of revenue, it’s one of your most valuable assets. Stockpile is a free inventory management system that is easily managed through a simple interface.

Insurance

Both public liability and professional indemnity insurance covers you from any potential injury of customers/and or employees as well as any possible damage. If you are leasing, sometimes a portion of this may be covered in the lease agreement. All the major insurance companies offer this type of coverage, but Statewidespecializes in commercial insurance needs.

Utilities

Utilities are variable costs that can fluctuate from month-to-month. Specifically, your energy bill can have a big impact on your cost base. EnergyBot can help you find the best energy plan in your area and lock you into a lower long-term rate than what you would find if you went with an energy broker.

Equipment and Supplies

Every business requires some form of equipment and basic supplies. This includes everything from a copier to the coffee machine.  If your cashflow is tight and you’re not yet ready to make a commitment to purchase equipment, Associated Bank is a commercial leasing company that offers everything from furniture to trucks.

Moving into a new business location doesn’t have to be stressful if you’re prepared. Our team here at EnergyBot want to help make the transition as seamless as possible.
