Office Moving Tips
everything should be labeled, no matter how small or inconsequential. When a desk has a removable return, both pieces must be tagged.
Bundles of computer cable, Floor mats, white boards, trash cans, typewriters, individual computer components, and peripherals, etc must be all individually tagged.
Tag items in locations that are easy for the movers to spot:
Bookcases on top
Storage Cabinets on front
File top Cabinets on front
Boxes on the ends, not top or bottom
Empty completely the contents of the following articles- Desks, table drawers, credenzas, shelving, storage cabinets, and bookcases.
Filing cabinets –
Do not empty vertical (narrow types) file cabinets, they will be moved full. Empty all lateral (wide type) file cabinets.
All mechanical and electrical disconnections must be made prior to the time of move.
Personnel- Do not have a lot of extra personnel at your facilities on moving day. They will only get in the way of the movers.
Leased equipment –
Do not move photocopiers with toner installed. You must notify all service or lease agents that your are moving the photocopier or computer equipment that is under contract.
