As noted by Business.com: “Moving offices can kick-start a company into assessing the way it operates; it can motivate and encourage performance; alter the public, employee and customer perception of the business; and open up ways in which you can cut back on costs.”

But in order to reap these rewards, the office relocation itself must be smooth and successful – instead of stressful, costly and risky. To help make that happen, here are 5 keys to a successful business move:

1. Evaluate and Wisely Choose Your New Space  

Before you start thinking about packing office supplies and moving furniture, invest quality time and resources to evaluate potential relocation options. You want to choose a space that is going to serve your current needs, as well as give you room to grow in the future.

Here at Precision, for more than three decades we’ve had the privilege of helping businesses safely and successfully relocate their operations.

And while each of our clients is motivated by unique factors and details, generally speaking here are the four most common reasons why an out-of-state office relocation made sense for them, and why it might be on your horizon in the months to come:

The #1 Rule for Employees When Moving Heavy Items During a Business Move

[fa icon="calendar'] Sep 14, 2016 11:30:00 AM / by Tina Kiel posted in Office Relocation, Move Office Furniture

Every workplace has at least one, but usually a handful of them: folks who don’t think twice about lending a hand in the literal sense, because they’re fit, healthy, strong, and probably have a few marathons -- or perhaps several Pilates classes -- under their belt.

And so naturally, when it’s time for your business move, these people are more than willing to haul heavy furniture, trek up and down flights of stairs with loaded boxes, and so on. Well, before you allow these well-intentioned team members to become voluntary business movers, we ask you to keep a simple, single rule in mind: DON’T.

With over 30 years of helping businesses move from point A to point B (and sometimes points C, D and E as well), we think it’s fair to call ourselves “insiders”.

3 Tips for a Successful Business Move in the Rain

[fa icon="calendar'] Sep 8, 2016 11:30:00 AM / by Jeff Kiel posted in Office Relocation

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

According to WeatherDB.com, St. Louis gets an annual average rainfall of 43.42 inches – which is nearly 10 percent more than the national average. And as anyone who lives or works in the area knows, rain isn’t a seasonal thing, either: it’s a year ‘round experience, with between 2 and 3 inches falling from December through February, and around 5 inches in the summer months.  

All of this means that there’s a reasonably good chance that it could rain during your business move. However, don’t worry: this isn’t a baseball game, and unless conditions are severe and dangerous, there won’t be a rainout (followed by a double-header!). Instead, your professional movers will work with your team to plan accordingly so that everything is safe and protected from beginning to end. Here are 3 tips to keep in mind:

Business Move Warning: Beware the Lowest Bidder!

[fa icon="calendar'] Sep 7, 2016 11:30:00 AM / by John Kiel posted in Office Relocation

When it comes to purchasing solutions for your business, naturally you want to maximize value, minimize cost, and achieve the shortest path ROI. That’s not just good business sense: that’s good common sense, too! However, as you may have already experienced, going with the lowest bidder is almost always a disastrous and regrettable decision. As noted by the law firm Brent Law Group, PLLC:

"At least once a week, I have an opportunity to meet with an individual whose life has been hurt by a lowest bidder. Contractors, prior attorneys, mechanics, etc. who low-ball do so for a reason, in my experience.  My great-grandmother used to say it takes twice as long to do something fast.  I firmly believe it can cost twice as much to get something done cheaply."

Life is full of little – and sometimes big – warning signs that give us a chance to avert disaster or, if we unwisely and regrettably choose to ignore the message, lunge head-first into disaster. Ever had a car warning light come on and ignore it? Then you know what I’m getting at.
Well in the same light, there are some clear signs that you’re headed for a business move disaster – one that will likely end up wasting thousands of dollars, weeks of time, and might even put you on the wrong end of a lawsuit (which according to most seasoned attorneys is either end).

Here are the 3 signs that business move is on the way to becoming a horror story:
