Are you wondering how to relocate your dental practice? There are quite a few factors to consider, and it's easy to overlook little details that are actually very important. The following three tips will give you a well-rounded look at these details and help your transition go as successfully as possible.
Never accept a landlord's offer of lease without question or without any attempt to haggle over the terms. Just because they slide a thick, multi-page contract in front of you does not mean it is set in stone or impossible to change. Of course, to get a full picture of negotiating a lease, you will want to bookmark our other post that covers this topic exclusively, but the following money-saving tips will give you an edge when you sit down with a potential landlord:
The first step involves closely examining the terms of any new lease offer or agreement you receive, but this second step involves looking at your current lease for your dental practice. You need to make sure your dental practice can stay in your current location as long as is necessary. If some unforeseen delay happens at your new dental practice location that prevents you from moving in when you had planned to, your dental practice will come to a grinding halt if you've already moved out of your current location or started the moving process enough to disrupt your practice. Here are some tips in this regard:
You will need to schedule your move months in advance, preferably 12-24 months. Before you schedule it, examine the new space and determine if any renovations will be needed before you can move in. For the actual moving day of your office, ultra-precise planning will pay off. Good planning done well ahead of time will help you avoid any costly delays (which could lead to the dreaded "dark time" mentioned in Tip 2) and allow you to open your practice at the new location quickly.
