Involve them in the process, and you’ll be amazed by the fantastic ideas they bring to the table.

Packing Tips & Instructions: Master the Art of Moving Offices

Here’s your fun and friendly guide to packing up your office like a pro, complete with things to consider when moving an office:

Office Desk Desks & Work Tables

Time to empty out all those drawers and surfaces into boxes. Tuck small items (pens, paper clips) into envelopes, and pack liquids (ink, white-out) into zip-lock bags. Can’t fit something in a box? Just label it and leave it on the desk – our gondolas will take care of it.

File Cabinet MovingFile Cabinets

Vertical cabinets stay full (unless they tackle stairs). Lateral cabinets need to be packed, except for the bottom two drawers. Lock ’em up if you can, and tape up any lock-less latches. Keep the keys safe in an envelope with your desk stuff.

Moving Bookcases for an officeBookcases

Clear them out and pack the contents in boxes or book carts. Got sliding doors? Secure them with tape. Removable shelves? Take them out, stash them at the bottom, and tape those shelf clips in an envelope to the inside of the bookcase.

Unhook, unplug, and wrangle all those cables, mice, and keyboards into labeled large Ziploc bags or for extra safety, contact us for our pink anti-static electronics moving bags and bubble wrap monitor hoods. Label each component separately and back up your data before the move. Our team will load everything onto our fancy gondolas on moving day.
