Posted on Jan 26 2017 - 9:59pm by Editorial Staff

Business expansion is a scary thought for most business owners. The idea of developing a new location does open up countless more opportunities and exposes your business to a wider audience, but it can come at the cost of increased risks. Not only will you be spreading your resources more thinly, but your new location needs to be sustainable and generate enough profit to keep itself on its feet.

That’s why for many retail store owners, moving your business is the next best option. Whether it’s to attract a wider audience or move to a more accessible location, there are plenty of reasons why you should take your business to the next level and move it to a more profitable and lucrative location. To give you some ideas, here are four reasons why you should move your business’s premises.

Better staffing and services

There are times when you might be struggling to find the right staff member to add to your team, or a good third-party service to help support your business. Whether it’s the lack of a dedicated receptionist or non-existent tech support in your local area, there are plenty of business locations that you could move to that offer better staffing and more consistent local support. It’s a good idea to do ample research and see if there’s any interest for your type of business before you plan a move. For example, if you lack tech support in your area then make sure your new proposed location has ample tech support that is in good shape and won’t go bust before you complete the move.

More exposure

Moving your business to a more open location with more foot traffic and accessibility is a great way to improve the exposure of your company. Your brand name will be exposed to more people, your customers will have an easier time finding you, and consumers are more likely to visit your store on a regular basis if it’s close to public transportation. However, this is assuming that you won’t have much competition. If you own a clothing store that targets the same type of audience as a rival in your new proposed location, then you won’t be getting much additional business and you might even lose business because you’re the “new kid on the block” that people are weary of hanging out with.

Renovation

Out with the old and in with the new. If your business premises is old, falling apart or isn’t structurally sound anymore, then it’s a good enough reason to move to a new location. With the help of Bristol & Avon Transport, you could hire skips and removal services that will clean out your new location to pave the way for a fresh new business while your old location continues to function and work as per usual.

Getting ready for expansion

There comes a point where every business wants to spread their wings and reach a wider audience. Unless you plan ahead to expand, there’s almost no chance that you can safely grow the physical location of your office unless you have unused land to develop on. With a new business location, you can safely plan extra office space, floor space for customers, and add extra facilities and machinery so that you can provide your services to more people.
