GeoMetrick Enterprises is moving its offices. This time, to the Ann Arbor area of Michigan.
Why This Is Not a Big Deal for My Customers
First of all, my customers are the first people I tell about this type of information. If they’re reading this blog, they’re not surprised by this news and already have more information that what’s in this posting. To them, it’s just informational. The reason it wasn’t a big deal to them is that the contact information stays the same and there’s little disruption in service. I go out of my way to make sure that is the case. During the last move of my office, the only disruption to my customers was that I did take a few hours off on the day the movers came to deliver my office goods. That was planned in advance and included the customer in that discussion of timing and, fortunately, happened to be during a slow period for the customer, anyway.
Additionally, I seldom have local customers, so it isn’t as if I’m affecting a customer by moving away from them and causing them travel expenses they didn’t already have. GeoMetrick Enterprises customers sometimes require quite a lot of travel, but many customers are given their service directly from the GeoMetrick Enterprises office, so customers don’t see a change.
This will happen within the next 2-3 months.
The company contact information will stay the same except for the company address. These days, I find we seldom use postal addresses for anything but a contract so the only people who care about the address will be the current customers who need to receive a formal change-of-address notice and any potential new customers. I have a new customer, right now, and we’re just going to use the current address and I will send them a change-of-address notice once the move takes place. There is no reason to wait until the move is done for services.
While I’ll admit to being busy with other projects and my time is combined with the move, new customers shouldn’t hesitate to contact me. For one, if I really can’t take on the project, I can possibly suggest someone, so it never hurts to ask.
