Relocating Your Business? Teltek Can Help Your Move Be Stress Free!
Relocating your business? Teltek can help!
Relocating your business is a stressful task that is unavoidable. There are a lot of factors to consider when moving your business, like your phone and internet service, cabling, and overall how you will move all of your business technology. As you can imagine, relocating your business is a very long process. So proper planning must be put into place long before the move date—this is not something that can be done overnight. Fortunately, Teltek can help you when it comes to that irritating, unavoidable time when your lease is up and you need to move. So, in order to prevent an IT and telecommunications moving tragedy, here are a couple things that you should consider:
1. Schedule your site survey of the new location with Teltek.
Is your new office location a cement ceiling or a drop ceiling? Will your new space require plenum or non-plenum cabling? These questions may seem unnecessary and most often times are overlooked, but these are very important factors you should consider.
Does it sound complicated? Let the experts at Teltek handle it. Our certified technicians have experience with installing various types of cabling, like CAT-3, 5e, and 6.
2. Contact your carrier and provider
Now these steps are tricky. In most situations, your carrier will require 30 days notice of transferring phone and internet services to a new location—that is if your service is even offered at the new location, which requires a new task of switching all of your numbers to a new carrier. In addition to moving your services, you must also move the equipment. Depending on how many phones you have, the move can take hours. When relocating your phone system, there are some questions you might need to ask:
“Is there a working phone system already installed in the new office?”
If so, it may just be a matter of making sure the system works with your phones and that it has enough extensions.
“Does my current phone system allow for future growth?”
Before going through the lengthy process of relocating your whole system, evaluate your phone and see if it will support you for the next couple of years. If the answer is no, then you should consider upgrading now, which will be cheaper in the long run.
Again, does this sound complicated and like a headache? Well don’t worry—Teltek’s got it covered! No more hassle of calling your service provider and being put on hold for 30 minutes or making sure you don’t damage your biggest asset—your phones!
