Tips on packing up your office the right way

Tips on packing up your office the right way

Packing up your office may seem like a daunting task, but with meticulous planning and the right materials you will be all moved in to your new workspace before you can say "hello new desk!"

Of course, you want all office items to be protected in transit and if you use Saracen Move Management they will be. But there are a few things you can do ahead of time - before our removals team arrives. And before you start trying to move furniture and larger goods - stop! That's what we're here for, so leave it to the professionals.

The risk of injury when lifting heavy office items such as desks and computers is very real. It simply isn't worth risking your, or your employees' back for the sake of taking on a job yourself. If time allows, you could pack up some of the smaller items, using bubble wrap and sticky labels to make sure you know what is going where once you arrive at your new office destination.

Ask employees to pack up the smaller items at their personal workstation and group things together by colour for different departments. Be practical and ruthless when packing by filling smaller boxes with heavy items such as books and place stationery into the bigger crates.

While we will do as much as we can, there are some areas that will need your touch, when it comes to packing up the filing cabinets, for example. This is a good time to clear out, declutter and work out which files will be joining you in your new office. Be as organised as possible: place the files that are being moved in alphabetical or numerical order in a file-specific box. Use the right-sized box; if you use a box that is too big, you may find the folders will shift during the move, shuffling the contents in the process. Mark the box with your name, the address of your new location and whether the contents of the box needs to be 'handled with care'.

Although you will need to do a small amount of organising when moving office location, the majority of it can be done by us. The Saracen Move Management team removes the hassle from the process of moving. Our services include supplying crates and materials, storage, inventory management, transporting IT equipment, dismantling and reassembling furniture, and disposing or recycling rubbish.

Relocating office really isn't as daunting as you may think - especially when Saracen Move Management is with you every step of the way. What's more, your move will cause minimal business disruption as our team of commercial office movers can work outside of business hours.
