Moving can be a daunting and inconvenient task. Whatever the reason may be for relocating your business, you should do your part to make the process as painless as possible. The biggest telecom mistake you can make when handling an office relocation is waiting until the last minute to actually address the details of the move with your carrier. ACC Telecom is here with four telecom tips to help you prepare for your office relocation.
Contact Your Carrier as Soon as Possible
As a business owner, you should be operating far above an amateur level of procrastination. In fact, for the betterment of your business, you shouldn’t be procrastinating at all. If you are planning to relocate, you should let your carrier know as soon as possible to determine whether their service will be available at your new location. Most carriers require 30 days notice when transferring Internet or phone service to a new location. Failure to contact your carrier in a timely manner could result in lack of services, breaches in contracts, or hefty termination fees.
Don’t Forget to Contact Your Provider
After you let your carrier know about the move, you need to contact your provider. There’s a good chance that your staff IT member is not certified to move the valuable asset that is your business telephone system. Your provider will need to conduct a site survey to let you know how to safely and properly proceed with your move.
Schedule a Site Survey and Cabling with ACC Telecom
At ACC Telecom, our trusted and professional staff is equipped to conduct a site survey of your office space to identify potential issues and address them. Does your entire office need to be cabled? Do you have the permits you need for the new building? Do you know how to mark up your floor plan with new and existing data drops for phones and computers? Do you have any idea what we’re talking about? Don’t worry, the experts can handle it for you.
Schedule Your Move With ACC Telecom
Schedule your move with ACC Telecom and leave worry behind. We understand the appropriate steps for a successful move. Cabling should be completed first, followed by installation of the Internet, fax, and analog lines (if applicable). Moving your small business phone system is usually the last step in a successful move. If you want to avoid moving your phone system after hours and paying extra in labor costs, we suggest moving your PBX phone system on a government mandated holiday that falls on a Monday or Friday.
