Get Your Office Ready for Moving
Moving a business takes organization and planning. It’s best to start preparing for moving day before your Utah movers arrive.
These few easy tips will help you prepare for moving day:
Desks and Credenzas
Remove and pack all items. Pens, pencils, paperclips and other miscellaneous small items should be placed in an envelope, sealed, and packed in a book box. Pack your telephone and cords also in a book box and use priority numbering to locate them easily at your destination. Your movers will disassemble desks on the day of the move. Modular and cubicle moving services must be arranged in advance.
Remove and pack all bookcase items into a book box. Remove all wood shelves and lay them flat on the base shelf in the bookcase. Glass shelves must be wrapped and packed separately in a box. Mark this box as “fragile.” Remove shelf pins or hardware and place them in a labeled envelope. Secure the envelope firmly to the back of the bookcase with tape.
Your Utah movers are unable to move any cleaning products. All office supplies such as paper, files, folders, binders etc. must be packed in a small or medium box and labeled. Cabinets which need to be moved should be completely empty.
Pictures and Glass Items
All boxes which contain breakables should have a cushioning layer on the bottom and on the top of the box. Wrap small pictures separately and stand them on their end in a book box. Pack all glass items together and mark this box “fragile.” Large glass items must be crated. Crating services can be arranged through your moving coordinator.
Bulleting Boards and Dry Erase Boards
Small bulletin boards must be packed in a box. For large bulletin boards and dry erase boards, remove them from the wall and your Utah movers will blanket wrap them for transport. Tape the hardware to the back of the board. Moving companies don’t remount these items.
Fax Machines and Small Office Equipment
If possible, pack these items in original containers. Otherwise, pack them in a box separate from other items with cushioning material around them.
Furniture will be blanket wrapped before moving. Your Utah movers will provide labels which can be attached to furniture pieces for identification purposes. These labels will not damage the furniture, but they should be removed promptly. Use them to coordinate which office each piece of furniture belongs to at destination.
