If you’re getting ready for an office move, it’s likely that you are highly anticipating the stress that will come with it. An office move that seems smooth and easy may seem like the ideal situation, though it can be easily done by following our top tips.
Plan and Prepare
Planning and preparing for a move beforehand is the only way to ensure it will run as smoothly as possible. It’s important to understand what items in your office you are going to take with you, and how you are going to transport these to the new location. Thinking about this well in advance will help to avoid any last minute rushing and panicking.
Plastic, reusable tote boxes are the ultimate way of helping to speed up packing and unpacking processes due to the ease of being able to see exactly what is inside. Tote boxes are perfect for containing files, books and other miscellaneous items that may be lurking around your office. They are easily stackable, meaning the space you have can be put to better use.
Many people make the mistake of not emptying out filing cabinets before the big move. If files are left inside, it can cause the cabinets to warp during the move due to the sheer weight. You can use the plastic tote boxes to store the files during the move, meaning your filing cabinet is empty and can be placed in transit in any way, without the worry of files being damaged.
Labelling every box that is being moved is the ideal way to ensure everyone knows where all items should be stored. Associating different colours of labels for each workstation can ensure things are placed in the correct area in a quick and easy manner. Anything that isn’t labelled can mean it will need to be unpacked and sorted through beforehand.
