Crate Hire:

Crate hire is the most efficient and cost-effective method of relocating office contents. These polypropylene crates can be easily stacked and transported to the new location.

Crates can nest within one another when empty, or stack on top of one another when full. By using the simple but effective heavy duty flip-over metal stacking bars, containers can be stacked safely without crushing the contents.

The crates have no sharp corners or edges and are light, easy to handle, waterproof and secure. For added security you can convert the standard crates into security crates by fitting lids and security seals.

Office Moving Tips

HOW TO PACK FOR MOVING OFFICE

Preparation is key on any move but especially on an office move. Devising an office removal checklist will ensure a very successful and hassle-free move.

HOW TO PACK YOUR OFFICE BELONGINGS QUICKLY AND SECURELY

There will be rules that need to be followed, like when is the move date? What is coming and what is going to the bin? What to do with unwanted furniture and how to dispose of unwanted documents?

Simple and practical items can save your office move are- Bubble wrap, packing tape, sticky labels and coloured markers!

PACKING THE FILING CABINET

This is the first place to pack- as it will require the most time and holds the documents of your business and your clients.

Before packing a thorough go through is advisable- see if anything can be shredded, then recycled or can be moved to digital file.

Always take direction from the office manager and your employer as to how the files should be packed before beginning this process.

Top Tip:

Files/folders that are being moved in order (alphabetically, numerically, depending on how they’re arranged) in file specific boxes. Ensure the box fits the files so there will be no movement within the box throughout the moving process.

HOW TO PACK YOUR DESK

Knowing the size of your new office space will determine what stays and what goes on the office desk pack up. Stationary needs to be packed in accordance to what you will need so sort through the paperclips, notepads and other supplies. The key is to only take with you what you need. 

Top Tip:

Always mark the box with your name, its contents and if the packed box needs special handling. As it’s a business there may be confidential information inside so mark also on the box.  Remember to always note on the exterior its contents- this will save on unpacking time at the new office location.

Furniture and heavy items will be moved by the moving professionals but ensure that you have removed all materials from drawers before the move so they make it to the new location!
