Do you own your own business? Perhaps you are the general manager in charge of pretty much everything that happens under the sun at work. Whether you are the head honcho or whether you are his or her assistant, if you are in charge of moving your company to a new town or city, you must feel a great deal of pressure. You are more than likely concerned about helping your workers and their families make the move smoothly to their new location. And, on a different scale, you may be having to even plan the relocation of huge equipment, say construction equipment. From arranging for plant relocation services to finding realtors for your workers to use, here are some ideas that might help you when you are in charge of moving your company to a new area.
Because this is such a huge enterprise, consider forming two committees made of individuals who have shown in the past that they are reliable. For example, consider asking your administrative assistant to work with a realtor which you and a reliable team work on the relocation of your inventory.
Relocation Services - As you meet with plant relocation service providers, the business aspect of the move will more than likely be the first consideration. At this meeting you will probably determine how much the move will cost and how long it will take to complete the move. In addition, while you might have ideas of how you want things to be handled, the plant relocation service representative will have the training and knowledge to fine tune what you are proposing. You will probably have to meet several times to discuss different concerns and progress that is being made.
The plant relocation service workers will have the training and the experience to know how to dismantle, pack, transport, and then reassemble heavy equipment that you are moving. In addition, it will be done safely. Will some of your equipment need to be stored? If so, the plant relocation service will probably offer both indoor and outdoor storage facilities for your needs.
Realtor Services - While relocating tangible items such as heavy equipment is a huge deal, moving people might be even more complicated. Consider the fact that the workers and their families who will be making the move with you will more than likely be saying goodbye to friends and family members and to homes they love. Ask the person or the people who have been given the responsibility of finding a realtor to meet with heads of families and their spouses to find out how many children they have and what their ages are. Consider finding realtors yourself that you can match to the families that are represented, as having just one realtor might not be enough.
Just as you had various meetings with the representatives of the plant relocation services, consider having meetings with your workers so that you can reassure them that everything possible is being done to ensure that their move will be done efficiently.
