4 Effects of Moving Your Business to a New Location
Businesses seek opportunities.
If you have been in business long enough, you would know by now that chasing good options is all that a business needs. Moving to a new location is similar to that.
When you find the possibility of making more profit in some other location you don’t hesitate to move your office or your warehouse to that place. However, the process of moving does not come without a price.
There are many effects that befall your business when you finally decide to relocate to another place. Let’s take a look at some of the most obvious effects.
Your Business Suffers a Down Time
During the move, your business cannot operate unless you have a secondary office. If you only have one office and you are moving from it then you have to shut down your operations during the shift. Your business faces certain down time that might give your competitors an edge over you.
Stoppage of Profits and Continuation of Costs
When you are moving your business to a new location, you have to pay your dues in respect of the current location as well as your dues related to the new location. However, due to downtime, you are not making any profits. This creates a lot of cost that has to be recovered later on.
Limited Access of Clients and Issues with Client Retention
When you are in the process of relocating, many of your clients have a hard time contacting you. Your phone extensions are removed from the building, your internet connection is disabled and you are basically uprooting your entire office to settle in another area. During this time, any customer who visits your business place or calls you or emails you will certainly find you unavailable.
Sometimes, in such situations, you might even lose your customers to your competitors. Retaining loyal clients after a move is just as difficult as keeping them on board during the relocation. The only solution to this problem is that the movers do their job quickly so that you can get in touch with your clients again.
Problems with Communicating the Move
Once you have shifted to the new place, another dilemma that you have to face is communicating your move to your customers. However, this is a doable job. You can easily dial up all of your clients and inform them of your new location!
In the middle of all these issues, a business still makes the decision of moving because there are better profits in the new place.
