Getting Rid of Junk when Moving Office
Whether you are downsizing or upsizing, one of the things you will have to face when tasked with organising an office move, is what items you are going to keep and take with you to the new office, and what items can be classed as junk and be disposed of.
Moving office is an ideal time to have a good old clear out, and despite the laborious task of itemising everything and deciding what you are taking with you, disposing of items that you don't need will help to maximise your new office space, free up storage, and make your new office operate far more efficiently.
If you have any office furniture that is not going to complement your new office design, yet it's still in good nick, you might want to try and get something for it by selling it on Ebay or other Preloved second hand web sites. This is also a great way of generating some well needed funds to go towards purchasing new office furniture items. Some Office Removals Companies provide an office furniture clearance service which recycles your unwanted office furniture items responsibly
Be careful of how you dispose of unwanted IT Equipment, companies should reuse and recycle electronics instead of sending them to a landfill. You might also consider donating it to charity as long as they still work.
Files & Folders
If you have files and folders that you no longer access on a regular basis, get them archived off-site. This will free up valuable floor space in your new office and reduce the amount of storage you need. Ask your Office Removals Company whether they provide this service. Your Office Removals Company usually takes care of junk disposal and will ensure that all furnishings and items are properly disposed of. Recycling your junk that never gets used can actually help the environment and help you operate more productively in your new office.
Try to do your clear out well in advance of the move. This will not only enable you to see what needs to be purchased new, but also clears the decks before packing begins and can make the whole packing process far easier in a less crowded workplace.
