Packing and Organising your Office ready for Moving
Office Packing Tips
We all accumulate so many items of furniture and paperwork when we’ve been in a property for a period of time, so when it comes to the time when we must pack and move them, the task seems time consuming and almost impossible. However, no matter what size your business is, or how many belongings you have, it is important to start planning your office removals early to make the job of packing and moving your office easier and more manageable.
Here are some handy tips to help ease the packing and removals process:
First and foremost you need to decide which items you are keeping and what you are going to get rid of. Keeping items that you no longer use and taking them with you to the new office will only cause your office removals to cost more than is necessary and even take up valuable office space. Clearing and sorting your belongings will make the packing process so much easier.
Sorting through your office will allow you to draw up an inventory of items you’ll be taking with you in order to get an accurate office removals quotation.
Hire a professional Office Removals Company
Make sure you hire a professional removals company to carry out the move on your behalf. Never attempt to do the move yourself or use a cheap ‘man with a van’ alternative. An office removal company will see that your belongings end up in the right place, and your business will resume back to normal faster and without any disruption along the way.
Arrange a convenient packing schedule with your office removals company. Some items can be packed a week or so prior to the move and this can help spread the workload, particularly if you have a lot of files that need to be moved.
Decide on a suitable colour code for each department, team or area of your new office so that all the boxes end up in the correct location. This should correspond with the inventory too so that everything is accounted for, and nothing goes missing.
