If you’ve ever moved a business, you know how difficult it can be to move all the necessary items, from furniture to electronics.
Moving an entire office can be a complex and challenging task. It’s important that all of your office equipment and goods remain functional during the move, which is why it’s so crucial that you know exactly what to pack first. We start with any decorative items that don’t contribute to the day-to-day function of your business. If you have wall art, for example, it’s probably best to pack it up as well.
Label everything! Before we starting packing, make sure to label everything. You’ll need to take measurements of each room and note any differences. This way, you can be sure that your furniture will fit in your new office. A floor plan can help you determine how much space you have, so that you can label each box appropriately. During the planning phase, you should also make sure that all utilities are working properly. After all, you don’t want to start working in a cold, dark space.
Label all of your office furniture. Be sure to make labels that are both legible and visible so that they’ll be easy to identify and reassemble. This way, no one will be able to misplace an important item. Labeling is also important because it helps you keep track of the inventory, so that you can be sure that nothing gets lost. A final inventory of all of your furniture will help you make an accurate count and place all of your office furniture in the new location.
Before relocating office cubicles, it’s important to prepare properly. You should pack cubicles with care, then we fully disassemble them to prevent damage during the move. In addition, we have experts that have years of experiences and the proper tools to disassemble and pack cubicles for the office move. Before you begin, assess the cubicles and their structure to determine how many panels you will need to remove. Note the number of panels you have to remove, and whether there are attached desks or shelving. If you don’t have the time to do this on your own, consider hiring someone us to help you.
Before you begin disassembling the cubicles, you should disconnect the electricity and the internet. If you are going to attempt to do this yourself, be sure to educate yourself on proper lifting techniques before attempting this process, or we can show you during your move.
To safely disassemble cubicles, loosen any bolts holding them to the floor connector rails. If there are no bolts, you can pry them off with a screwdriver or rubber hammer. If you don’t have time or inclination to do this on your own, hire an office moving company to do it for you. They will disassemble the cubicles, load them onto a truck, and provide reinstallation services at the new location.
