Prepare your office destination floor plan

  • Plan a place for everything to go so that nothing is left to chance.
  • If similar items need to go into different rooms, consider putting coloured stickers or labels on items or tag furniture with a corresponding door number or area.

Photocopiers & computers

  • Always check the manufacturers operating instructions, and carry out any preparation required.
  •  For warranty purposes check with your IT professional they may prefer to move these items themselves.
  • Notify your customers, business partners, local governance service providers of your move.
  • Organise cleaning of your uplift office rooms.

Plan your packing

  • We will provide cartons free of charge for local removals, but conditions do apply.
  • Use mainly book cartons for easy lifting and make sure the cartons packed are not over-filled or under-filled, the top flaps need to remain level when folded closed and the carton is firm when you press on the top.
  • Label each carton with person’s name, brief description of what is in the carton, and bookshelf number, and shelf level number also room destination according to the floor plan.
  • Is there any packing required for records, archives or libraries and do these need to be packed in chronological order?
  • Pack loose items on desks onto cartons.
  • Desks, bookcases and stationery cabinets, credenzas must be emptied completely and their contents packed.
  • Lock or tape doors and drawers closed. Label these items according to destination floor plan.
  • Place keys into a plastic ziplock bag that one person has access to.
  • Lock or tape filing cabinets to prevent opening during transport. Tape keys to the surface of the cabinet or place with other keys in a ziplock bag.
  • Files can be left in filing cabinets if there are no stairs at uplift or destination.
