Here are our office moving packing tips.
Home Office – Preparation
The first thing that you will need to do is buy some book boxes. You need to be sure to get the right moving supplies for our office move. Documentation and office equipment are all heavy so look for sturdy boxes. Ask the moving company to provide you with some office packing supplies. It’s good to have the office packing boxes, tape, paper, etc. before you begin to pack. Decide if you want to do it yourself or call a moving company. If you’re planning on packing home office on your own start early. As soon as you know everything your are taking in your office start packing immediately. You want to have everything ready by the time your move day arrives. It’s recommended that you take out all the content of your office desk and any other furniture that you may have in your office.
If the movers pack for you, you can relax and just guide the process. Movers can handle packing your office much more quickly than you naturally because of their experience and professionalism in the packing.
Don’t keep very old archives or useless papers. They’ll just put on more weight on the boxes for which you have to pay the transportation. Be sure to throw away all useless paper work or archives to minimize your cost.
Make sure to label all your document boxes in alphabetical or chronological order, or in another way convenient for you.
When packing books don’t overload the boxes. Boxes can get really heavy real fast when putting books inside them. You should try and distribute the books evenly by placing a few books in a box and filling the rest of the box with lighter items.
Packing the home office books in large boxes will make them difficult to carry for the movers and may cost you additional charges. Never place any glass or fragile items in a box that is carrying books. Always place books upright or on their side depending on the box and size of the books.
Try to always keep in mind that the box need to balanced. Placing large and heavy books upright or on the sides can severely damage them.
