By: Abhishek Agarwal

If you want to have a successful corporate relocation, you should have a solid, fool-proof action plan. You should make a complete relocation checklist so that you can track that action plan. A relocation checklist will also provide extra accountability and cut through the complication and confusion. Moving a company can be a torture even for some expert corporate relocation companies. So, if you maintain a relocation checklist you will get rid of some possible mistakes.

It is obvious that a relocation checklist should have a definable flow that organizes each part of the corporate relocation process into several steps that maintain every important point of progress in proper alliance with the rest. Inside every phase, various activities are delineated. Often this is done in a pre-defined order but it does not always follow a rigid schedule. Rather, the checklist can is like a framework that can be modified if required.

These details may differ considerably depending upon the kind of business that is being relocated. Also, there are important aspects that will apply in many cases. Accordingly, you will have to cope with the same facts in the same hierarchy no matter what the business checklist. Relocation of corporate or private businesses will follow the same basic guidelines.

What are the broad points in the checklist?
* Listing down your requirements
* Finding out about specialized relocation companies
* Preparing the relocation site
* Organizing the actual move
* Regular updation of the checklist to cope with changes in budget and progress
* Installing basic requirements like phone connection and electricity etc.
* Making the new location ready
* Making sure all certifications and inspections have been taken care of

A relocation checklist should also look after the employees. Adequate care should be taken to ensure proper arrangements for accommodation and education of the families of the employees.

With any important process, it is vital that you set a time frame to your relocation process. Start planning well in advance. Allot enough time for planning and research. Also give enough time to your employees to settle their personal commitments. You should know before hand how long will it take for you to shift, and how long will it take to actually set up your new site. Having such time-bound schedule will ensure better efficiency and you will not waste time on things that do not matter much. Having a time frame will give proper accountability and will help you in proper relocation within stipulated duration.

If you follow all the above points your relocation process will go very comfortably. Your stress level will be low, and confidence will be high. The result? A hassle-free, smooth relocation!
