As a business, we know the importance of continuous trade, especially in this current competitive market. But what happens when disaster strikes and you no longer have an appropriate building in which to serve your customers? Follow our simple disaster recovery steps to get you back up and running.
If you have a perishable stock, find an alternative retail solution immediately- our temperature controlled temporary buildings are perfect for this sort of situation.
Make the call
Call your temporary building supplier and get them immediately over for a site visit and chat about how to move things forward with the temporary retail store straight away.
It’s all in the detail
Continue to have regular talks with your temporary building supplier detailing the finishing touches that you want to enable the retail outlet to feel like the original. This may include automatic sliding doors to allow easy access for trolleys at a temporary supermarket, or having a glass fronted building to show off new models in a temporary car showroom.
Communicate to your customers
whilst you’re temporary building is being installed, keep your customers informed- communicate with flyers in the local area and posters at the damaged site, all telling them that you will be trading as normal in a temporary store on site.
Reap the rewards
well done; you’ve acted quickly and continued trading despite having unfit permanent facilities- now it’s time to reap the rewards! Many of our customers find that their footfall actually increases during the time that they trade in the temporary retail outlet due to excited new customers wanting to see the new building and loyal ones not wanting to shop anywhere else!
