Shop Relocation Tips


Moving to a new location is pretty challenging, and it doesn’t get easier for shop or business owners. Businesses are often directly associated with place, and therefore, automatically linked to certain locations. This adds an extra dimension to moving. We understand how these things could really give create a handful of difficulties for you.

Here at Removals and Storage Newcastle, our aim is to give our clients the freedom to move and relocate without getting too stressed out from the planning, logistics, and expenses that come with the move. We offer you the much needed extra muscles so you can make your move smoothly.

How about we get started with a few shop relocation tips that you might find useful? Here are a few from our experts.

Plan your relocation ahead

More than the heavy tasks of packing, carrying, and transporting, an expense is an equally important issue in relocating shops. However, it is also the one that we normally neglect or overlook. Keep in mind that in as much as you are opening a shop in a new location, you are also closing one from the old. And some of the more costly expenses are actually related to the closing of the old one.

Planning ahead will give you enough time to estimate with better accuracy the expenses that you will have to deal with along the way. Important files, documents, and equipment that are to be transported will also be evaluated accordingly if the move is well planned. It’s also a good move towards financial preparedness to calculate possible income loss due to the relocation.

Key to cost-cutting: expect the unexpected

Nothing can be more frustrating and disappointing than having to pay more for something that you shouldn’t have paid for at all. These things usually happen because you chose not to allocate financial contingencies. As a result, you end up spending more than our foreseen budget, and in turn, saving less.

So other than the expenses connected with opening the new and closing the old, appropriate allotment to expenses related to employment and services will give your budget for operations enough space to breathe.

Will there be a need for retrenchment?  How about contracts such as phones, the internet, and other services under your old shop that are to be terminated? Setting aside funds for miscellaneous expenses other than those mentioned is a good idea.

Research: gather information

Knowing a lot about the agreement and terms of both the old and new shop location will not only save you financially – this will also ensure that you utilise everything to your advantage by simply knowing your rights as stated in these legal documents. Check out on the specific details of your shop’s new site. And as you’ve just ended your contract with the old one, by thoroughly knowing the agreements you previously had, you will be able to maximise them ‘til the end.

A little background in economics goes a long way

This doesn’t mean that you have to earn a degree in economics just for you to conduct your relocation effectively. Basic understanding of supply and demand, commercial opportunities for big and small businesses particularly in terms of expansion and relocation. You want to save as much as you can with your move.

With going on too much, you oftentimes lose sight of some of the most important aspects and factors affecting your relocation. Cutting costs for the actual move happen before, during, and after the relocation, so, extremely intensive planning is necessary. During these times, an outsiders’ perspective might just come in as handy when making shop relocations. Here at Removals and Storage Newcastle, we make sure that with our help, relocating your businesses can be done without usual trouble comes with it.
