Why Executive Relocations Need to be Properly Planned For

Poorly planned for executive relocations can wreak havoc on a business’ bottom line. In fact, it can have a long-term negative impact on a business. An unfortunate number of business owners have only discovered too late just how important it is to meticulously plan a move to ensure that everything is in place before moving day.

Don’t be a Victim of a “Cheap” Office Relocation Service

When corners are cut and the “cheap” way out is taken, it can cost a business far more in terms of bottom line, and here’s how:

  • Downtime: Haphazard moves will inflict downtime on the business. Without a plan in place, no one will know what they need to do and when they need to do it, which often results in absolute chaos on moving day. This means that for hours, days or even weeks, the business can be unproductive or provide customers with poor service. In this scenario, the business can lose customers’ support immediately as well as in the future as they won’t wish to return.


  • Uninformed clients or potential clients: When a move is not properly planned, chances are that the admin is not handled correctly either. This means that customers won’t be advised of the new address, or contact details advertised will be incorrect. This can be confusing for existing and potential customers who will look for alternative suppliers or service providers when they are unable to find or reach the business.

  • Higher staff turnover: Moves are stressful and executive relocations that are not professionally handled will place unwarranted pressure on staff members. If a business expects corporate or executive employees to handle the move, it can cause feelings of discontent and negative morale. This can result in poor job satisfaction or increased stress levels to the point where employees leave the business in search of greener pastures. It can take time to train and replace staff members and this will, undoubtedly, incur additional costs.


  • Damages: Expensive key equipment, machinery, furniture and assets can get damaged when a move is not properly planned for and catered to. With an unskilled or inexperienced relocation team, your most valuable and necessary items can suffer serious damage. These items can take time and cost a great deal of money to replace which can have a long-term negative impact on the business.

These are just a few of the ways in which your business can be negatively impacted when your executive relocations are not correctly planned for.
