Denver Movers Discuss Who to Notify Before Moving Your Business
September 27, 2017
Businesses often need to relocate in order to move closer to their customers or find a space that will fit their growing company. But before you go, there are certain parties that you need to notify. Denver movers from Eden’s Moving Company recommend notifying everyone on this list before moving your business:
Of course, businesses must notify customers of their upcoming move. Even if your customers don’t have to visit your physical location in order to do business with you, they may need to know where you are moving so they know where to send payments or how to find you.
You will also need to notify all of your service providers of your future move so your business can continue to operate without interruption. For example, if you don’t let your internet service or office supply provider know about the move, it may be hard to do business with no supplies or Wi-Fi. Make a list of the service providers that bill you every month so you can keep track of whom you need to inform.
At the very minimum, your business should have liability insurance, which means you will need to notify the insurance company that you are moving to a new location. The insurance company will need to see your new location so they can send you an updated estimate if the cost of your coverage has changed. Don’t wait until the day before the move to let your insurance company know. It’s best to get this out of the way as soon as possible so you don’t have to worry about whether you are covered or not once you arrive at your new location. What kind of business insurance do you need?
Another party that will need to be notified in advance is the bank. Let your contact at the bank know that you will be moving so they can update the information on your account and send you blank checks with the new address. It may take a few weeks for them to have the new checks printed, so give them as much time as possible so you have everything you need before the move.
How to Notify These Parties
Some parties—such as banks, insurance companies, and service providers—should be notified directly via phone or email so you know they got the message. However, it would be difficult to call every single one of your customers to notify them of the move. Instead of contacting each customer directly, simply update your website, social media accounts, and email signature with your new address. This is a quick and easy way to ensure that anyone who interacts with you on a regular basis sees that you are moving.
