Use these five tricks to make the transition smoothly into your new workspace.

Leaving Home 5 Tricks for Transitioning from a Home Business to an Office Space

  1. Let Your Clients Know

    Your clients should be among the first to know that you are changing locations. This will prevent disruptions on any ongoing contracts or sales you may have.

    Your customers will also appreciate being kept in the loop. It’s simple common courtesy.

    You will also get paid faster because they will know where to send any outstanding payments.

  2. Leverage Your Support Network

    Your support network is very important when starting your own business and especially when growing it.

    Perhaps your family will be happy to have your office out of the house, or perhaps they will be sad you won’t remain at home, closer to them.

    Whatever their reaction, have them on board for the changes. Explain why this needs to happen, make sure they are okay with it and ask for help when you need it.

  3. Use Professional Movers

    Professional movers from places like Del’s Truck Rentals can help you get your equipment out of your house and into your new office space without hassle.

    You don’t want to run the risk of hurting yourself in the move and losing precious work time as you are getting settled in. They are also equipped to ensure nothing will break.

  4. Wait on Hires

    If your business has grown to the point where you need commercial office space, it is likely you will need additional employees too.

    You should wait to hire new employees until you’ve settled into your new office. Your business will come across as more impressive if you interview candidates in a commercial office space rather than your home.

    It’s better to leave important decisions like hiring until you can devote all of your time to it as well.

  5. Keep A List

    A list can help you keep track of all the things you need to do during the transition. It will ensure you don’t forget to do anything important, so create it before the madness begins.

    Be sure to remember everything from changing over where mail is sent to sending out a notice to your customers.

Moving office locations is always a time of great change. But there are some things you can do to make it easier on yourself, your family and your clients. These tips should help you have a smoother transition.
