Efficient Packing Tips for Office Removals
Office Moving Packing Tips
Packing is one of those jobs that we all associate with the upheaval of moving. A business relocation is no different; there’s still stuff to sort through, files to pack and furniture and equipment to inventory. Of course, having a professional office removals company to do all this in your behalf is always advisable. However, there will still be things that you will need to do as a business to get fully prepared for your relocation. We’ve identified some easy and efficient packing tips to help kick-start your removals process:
Before starting with any packing, think about what items you want to take with you to the new office. Packing up your office will be far simpler when you have less things to pack. Use this Office Clearance Guide to help you sort through all your office furniture and files and recycle items correctly.
Your office removals company will provide you with enough crates to pack up items on your desk and in your cabinets. Heavy items need to be loaded at the bottom of the crate, but avoid overloading it. If it’s too heavy to lift, your removals firm will also find it hard loading it into the van. Be careful not to overload the crate, if it can’t close - then you have put too much in it. Breakable and sharp items will need to be bubble wrapped. If the crate contains fragile items, write ‘fragile’ on the top and all sides of the crate.
It is essential to label EVERY crate once it’s packed and before it gets loaded into the removals van. You may need to use coloured labels that correspond with the space plan in your new office so it’s easy for your removals company to see where items are to be unloaded and unpacked.
Prepare your “Open first” box
This includes essential supplies that you might need first when you get to the new office like a kettle, mugs, teabags, and some refreshments for your removals company. These simple packing tips should help you arrange your items and transport them safely.
