When preparing for an office move, you will first need to know your moving date before contacting a business removals specialist.
The office removals firm will need to know which items you will be moving and also where the items will be placed in your new location; they will also need to know about any access issues, narrow staircases, parking permits or restrictions. See here.
Also, let the moving company know if there are any loading docks or elevators or if your building has double or single doors to the front or rear.
Having a detailed schedule and floor plans will help make everyone’s job easier, including your own.
You will generally have the choice to use cardboard boxes or rent plastic crates for packing up equipment and paperwork for your office move. Some office removal firms may offer to loan the crates at no cost if they themselves are moving you.
Some industrial business moves may require more specific expertise:
Extremely large or heavy items of machinery – pianos, commercial kitchen equipment, large electronic equipment, safes.
Specialist computer equipment – computer storage devices or servers, large screens and monitors.
Choosing a removal company
If any of the above apply to your corporate removals or any other circumstances that might increase the degree of difficulty for your office relocation, be sure to address them as soon as possible and bring them to the attention of your business mover.
If overlooked, some items may cause the cost to increase or result in delays for your move.
Here are some office removal companies we recommend:
- Vale Removals, Cardiff.
- Buckley’s removals, Manchester.
- Pickfords, Liverpool.
- Bishops Move, Newcastle.
Most professional movers offer a complete packing service or assist with special packing requirements.
Some business moving companies may ask that your employees pack their belongings; this will generally be office desk contents, essential files and personal items and have their boxes marked with the name of staff it belongs to.
