Making your office removals easier is simple when you have a system that you are able to use, in order to get it all done effectively. It is unfortunate that most people will leave it very late to shift things because they feel that they can all get it done in an afternoon. Following a simple removals procedure will enable you to make it easier because when you have a plan to follow, things often go smoothly. We have created a very simple plan for you with tips that you can use immediately for your relocation.
The first thing to do is always discard all the junk that you may have, especially if you haven’t used it within a year. It is amazing how much stuff you can hoard and not realise. Some of the best things to do is always put everything in different piles and see how you feel about it. It can be small items, or it can be big ones. There may be a desk lying around and you aren’t sure of how to have it incorporated into your next place. A simple solution would be either to donate it to charity or to sell it for your move. The key is not to take extra things that will clog up your place, during your relocation.
Second, always start packing things that are able to be packed, properly. You cannot just throw things in a box and expect them to reach safely when it comes to your new place. Your boxes should be well lined with bubble wrap or anything else you may find useful and done so at least 2 weeks before you choose to move. That way, there is no panic and wondering about how little time you have left.
Third, don’t forget to inform all your utilities companies before you move. The reason for this is because you do not want excessive billing continuing even after you leave. Ensure you let all your gas, electricity, phone, broadband providers know when you are able to terminate your contract with them (leaving date), so that they only bill you for what is needed.
The fourth thing to do is to get your staff to give you a helping hand. Before the removals company shows up, it is wise to have a good clean of the place if you didn’t want to hire professional cleaners. A good scrub down and sweep of the place shows respect for the landlord as well as presenting you in the best light when you leave.
Finally, have everything prepared in your new place before you move. It’s tempting to think that once you get there, you will do everything. If it means that you need to use a removals and storage company, by all means do so—because it will lighten the load that you are carrying. Storage companies are fantastic, because you do not have to worry even if you get the keys to your new place a little later. You can always go pick stuff up without having to worry about how and where you’ll keep your belongings safe.
When you follow these simple rules, it becomes all that much easier to move office because you are prepared. Half the battle to winning anything in life is being prepared! You can get your staff or hire contractors to help you before you hire the removal specialists to help you move to the new place!
