  • Packing professional – Regardless of the size of the company, it’s probably best to splash a little cash on some professional to do the majority of the packing. That way you can rest assured that everything will be packed carefully and there is less disruption to the workforce
  • Storage – Depending on whether it’s a downsize or you need time to set up the basics, storage will likely be an option that you will want to avail of. It gives you a bit more flexibility in the move, but it also will add to the costs
  • IT and document crates – If you have a lot of IT equipment, who doesn’t, or a lot of documents you need to move, crates will be very useful. In most cases, a removal company will have crates on hand, and you can rent them for your move, very practical
  • Extra insurance – Even if this a very small move over a short distance, having insurance is imperative! Accidents can, and do, happen. It’s best to cover any possible eventuality so you don’t have to pay more to replace all the office furnishings

Prepping and Packing

A good packing plan will go a long way. Ideally, you should segment your office into different groups that you can identify using a code or colour. This will help with unpacking as you can easily tell where the boxes will go.

Prior to the arrival of the office removal company, you should prepare by giving everything a thorough cleansing, packing away small furnishing such as personal affects and stationery, unplugging all electronics (but be sure to photograph how electronics were connected so it’s easy to set them up again), and clearly labelling everything so groupings can be easily identified.

If you availed of the packing service from your removal company, then you can stand back and oversee the removal and only need to interject when there is a problem or a question. It makes this part of the removal a lot easier. Otherwise, be sure you have enough packing material and pack everything carefully as if you were packing your own house!
