Safe and secure packing tips before moving your office
Before moving your office, the first step is packing all your items safely. Proper packing is a very important activity because it keeps all your items secured before office movers can take them to your preferred location. The office has different items and each requires a unique packing procedure moving.
The following are important packing tips before moving:
Keep an account of all your supplies
This is the first step before you start packing any item. This involves recording the number of all of items you will move with. Keeping an account of your items is important to prevent loss of any items during movement.
Securely wrap fragile items
Fragile items like utensils and lamps should be securely wrapped with air bubble materials and carefully packed in cartoons. This will make sure they do not collide and break during movement.
Clear the freezers
Freezers of refrigerators should be moved empty. Make sure you remove all items stored in the freezer and also take this opportunity to clean the fridge so that you move it clean. Keep the contents separately in a place where you will put them back once you reach your new office.
Secure sharp objects together
Sharp objects like knives and garden objects should be secured together to avoid scattering all over the place and causing accidents. Once you secure them, they will be clearly seen and this will avoid possible accidents due to misplacement.
Dispose what you don’t need
During the process of packing, you will realize that there are specific items that you might need. This is the right time to dispose such items and avoid taking unnecessary items to your new location. This is a great way of saving on space because you will be left with only what you require.
Seal liquid containers to avoid spillage
Ink and glue bottles should be properly sealed to avoid spillage during movement. After sealing they can be put in cartons and properly labeled.
Get help from electronic vendors
Electronic vendors like photocopy and printer vendors can help you in dismantling of parts without causing damage. They will help you in dismantling parts and assembling them back once you reach your new office.
Arrange your carton for maximum use
Your carton should be properly arranged to obtain maximum use from it. This should be by placing the heavy items at the lowest point followed by the lighter objects. This will avoid sagging and keep your carton intact during movement.
