There is never a good time to relocate your business, particularly if the move will involve transferring a lot of equipment that will need to be set up again in your new premises. It is inevitable during office removals, Perth business owners will need to be prepared for some downtime. However, it is possible to make your move a little smoother and minimise the disruption with our office removalists Perth pro tips.
Dig Out Your Original Packaging
Most of us have a little hoarder instinct, and if you’ve kept the original packaging for your printers, phones and other office equipment, this can be a great benefit for your office removals. The original packaging has been designed specifically for your item so that it will offer the greatest security during transportation. Don’t despair if you’ve already thrown away your original packaging, but you will need to buy some high quality packing supplies to ensure that everything is protected.
Disconnect Each Electrical Item Separately
Although it is tempting to run around your premises quickly disconnecting all the equipment to get everything packed up, this can be a real mistake. It is far better to take a methodical approach and tackle each electrical item separately. Start by taking a photograph of the connections, to make reconnection easier at the new premises. Then disconnect all the cables and roll them separately to keep everything neat. Use cable ties to secure any cords that cannot be removed from your equipment. Then everything related to this piece can be placed in one box and labelled up for the appropriate location in the new premises.
Be Generous With the Bubble Wrap
Whether you’re packing electrical or fragile pieces of equipment, be sure to be generous with the bubble wrap. Try to avoid overpacking boxes, but if you are worried about accidental damage, use a second layer of bubble wrap or pad out the corners and sensitive areas with cardboard, just in case there is any shifting during transit.
Clean & Dismantle
Just like moving your household items, you don’t want to transfer dust, dirt, and debris into your new property. So, be sure to clean and dismantle all your items. Use a damp cloth to clean all your furniture such as tables, chairs, and desks before you dismantle them ready for the moving truck.
Load the Moving Truck Strategically
When you start to load your moving truck, start with your larger and heavier items, so that boxes and smaller items can be placed into any gaps and on top of these items after. Don’t attempt to lift heavier and larger items by yourself, as this is usually a two person job. Be sure to use proper manual handling techniques to avoid injury.
