Expand your Business Without Moving Premises

If you’re trying to grow your business and expand your customer base, relocating to new premises can really throw a spanner in the works.

It’s not uncommon for an expanding business to need more floor space, but regardless of whether your company is relatively new or well established in the area, moving premises is a big deal – not just for the time and money it takes, but also the effect it can have on your customer base.

Most of the time customers will remember your business if you’re positioned in an area local to them, especially if you are a larger chain or franchise. As a result, relocating to somewhere unknown could have many pitfalls and challenges to overcome.

It’s fair to say that most people underestimate just how significant a task it is to move premises. Not only do you have to complete the move with all your stock, paperwork and equipment, but you also have to go about informing your customers of a relocation. It’s also more than likely your business will have to close for some time to facilitate the move, costing you sales.

On top of that, all your letterheads and business cards will need to be rebranded with your new address at additional expense. It’s also likely that customers will continue to head to your old address for a number of months after the move simply out of habit, meaning disappointment for them and lost business for you.

Don’t forget your website and online social media accounts like Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn. All of these will need to be updated by your web developer which may incur an additional charge.

So what is the alternative? A mezzanine floor of course! Install a mezzanine floor in your existing premises to potentially double your floor space whilst staying in the same location that regular customers already know. You probably chose an ideal location when you first started your company, so why move away?
