How to Keep Track of Product and Inventory During a Business Move
One of the most important parts of moving your business, in New York City and elsewhere, is keeping diligent track of the things that you are having moved. Professional business movers will be able to perform this task without issue, but there are things you can do to make the process more efficient.
Take a Detailed Inventory
Use a computer program such as Excel or Google Spreadsheets, to keep track of every single thing you pack. Advise all employees that are lending a hand to the packing aspect of the move to do the same.
Spreadsheets should be labeled with location, item, and the amount of the items packed. Details should be tracked down to the pen, with nothing left unpacked or unnoted. By appointing a moving committee, you can conduct business as usual while the move begins behind the scenes.
Only appoint trustworthy employees that you can afford to spare for an hour or two a day. Begin the inventory well in advance. Take it slow, and make sure everything is recorded correctly, especially if you keep product stocked within your office. Advise employees to double check their work. Also, keep a list of what they’ve discarded, if anything.
Know Your Move Method
In order to keep track of everything, even with professional movers on the job, you have to know the way your office equipment will travel. If you’re moving the whole shebang to Staten Island, for example, there are few ways for it to get there.
You can load your things up on the Staten Island ferry, which is likely considered a huge disruption and a disaster for your business movers, or you can choose a bridge and take it. Highly suburban, Staten Island isn’t exactly the easiest borough to get to, but once you’re there, it’s worth it.
Your employees will love working in this family oriented borough, dotted with tasty restaurants and cozy cafes. Staten Island, once you’ve established your method of arrival, is so much fun to work on.
You moving team will know the best route to take to help your things arrive safely at their new home. They should have a copy of your inventory, and will take note of any incidents during travel.
