There is a lot of preparation that goes into readying a business for sale. While most people focus on the cosmetic factors, it's good to pay attention to other crucial areas such as the electrical side. You'd be surprised at just how much value a commercial electrical service can add to your sale. Below, find a list of the major electrical services you should get at this time to optimize your property for the sale.
Security is a major talking point when negotiating with potential buyers. Your commercial electrician can help ensure that your business is safe by looking into your security systems. These include your alarm system and your CCTV surveillance system. Your electrician will service the lock and inspect the sensors to ensure that they are in perfect working order. He/she can also install additional sensors, either for motion detection, fire, smoke, CO2, or other hazards. They will also troubleshoot the surveillance system to ensure data is being captured well and that the Wi-Fi system is fully functional.
Lighting is yet another area that, though simple, can have a huge impact on the outlook of your business to potential customers. The first chore of your electrical contractor is to check all lighting fixtures to ensure that they are properly affixed and working well. They can then replace any faulty bulbs or fluorescents. New installations can be done for under-lit areas to maximize visibility. Your electrician can also install outdoor lighting to help with security as well.
Maintenance of equipment
Faulty machines can really ruin a sale or affect your asking price. To avoid this, have your commercial electrician go through your major electrical equipment to troubleshoot for errors. If you have any repairs that you have been putting off, now will be the time to get them attended to. Common areas that should get serviced at this time include air conditioners, computers, freezers, cookers, copiers, generators, and appliances.
Last but not least, have your electrician check the wiring around your business premises. Even where all your equipment is working well, faulty wiring can let you down at the last minute by causing lack of power, electrocution risks or short-circuiting. Your electrician will inspect the system to ensure that there are no naked wires, loose dangling connections, missing ducting, worn fuses or faulty power points. If your property is an office, have the electrician check your telephone and data wiring too.
With the above commercial electrical services, you will not have to worry about getting reports of faulty fixtures during or after the sale. You will also be in a position to negotiate higher and seek a tidy resale value for your investment.
