There are a lot of things to think about if you’re planning to relocate your office. Although most businesses will work with a professional removals company - and you should too - it’s still a good idea to make sure you understand at least a little about the moving process.
One of the most important things to work out is how you’re going to move your electronics. If you run a large business with multiple computers, printers and other electronic equipment, it can be a nightmare to figure out how to best move everything.
In the rest of this article we’ve drawn on our professional knowledge to outline some of the most important things to know about moving office electronics.
Ensure Things Are Packed Properly
It’s extremely important to make sure that you pack your computers and other electronic equipment properly, otherwise it could be damaged during the move.
- Keep cables and wires separate and properly organised to prevent them from tangling and getting mixed up. Consider either packing different types of cables in separate boxes or packing cables with the relevant equipment.
- Make sure you use plenty of padding around things like computers, printers and other devices. If possible, use the original boxes.
Once you’ve packed electronic equipment into a box and taped it up, give it a little shake. If things move, you will need to add more padding to prevent damage in transit.
