We’re all of a flurry at Kaleidoscope HQ this week as we’re moving house at the end of March.
Along with the countless things it takes to do and remember to make a home move go smoothly, there’s a lot to sort out in terms of moving the business, too.
Most of the planning I’m busy with at the moment is to ensure my clients receive a completely seamless service from Kaleidoscope – hopefully they’ll be barely aware anything has changed.
Part of ensuring this is the case is keeping myself calm and free from stress – a challenge at times, as there are a lot of emotional ups and downs to deal with. It’s another reason why advance planning is essential for managing a move like this.
There is quite a large checklist for moving home – this is by no means complete, but it’s a good starter if you’re in the same position:
- New business cards
- Change address on all marketing materials, invoices and website
- Send out change of address emails and letters
- Notify Companies House
- Arrange for telephone, broadband and Wi-Fi to be installed in advance
- Notify insurance company
- Have post redirected
- Get a good quality, highly recommended removal service and invest a bit extra in getting their help with the packing
The truth about number five, by the way, is that I’ve actually decided not to have a business landline any more. All of my clients have completely embraced the 'virtual' aspect of being a Virtual Assistant and only ever call me on my mobile. I couldn't run this business without my mobile phone now - come back to the blog next week for all the ways a good Smartphone can make a Virtual Assistant business tick.
