Hiring an Office Mover? Here Are Some Tips on How to Handle Small Items, Such as Personal Effects
When you hire an office mover to pack, load, and haul office cubicles, printers, copiers, IT systems, casegoods, and other items, one part of your move that may still need to be addressed is moving your employees’ personal effects. In general, when a business needs to move, the employer will request employees to pack and move their own belongings before the office mover arrives. This can help shorten downtime during the move as the task of moving office and desk items can take less than an hour or two if each employee handles his or her own belongings.
If, however, you envision organized chaos ensuing when giving your employees the order to pack and move their own belongings, think again. If you follow the tips below, you can ensure that the process will go off without a hitch and will be completed before the office mover arrives to relocate your other items.
Box it up – Provide each employee one or two boxes for their desk items, then a box for each loaded file drawer they have.
Label it - Mark each box with the name of the employee it’s issued to.
Map it – Give each employee a floorplan of the new office space, ensuring the plan clearly delineates where each employee will be located in the new workspace; be sure the office mover has a copy of this plan, too.
Move it – Have plenty of dollies and other types of hand carts available for your employees to use when they’re moving their boxes – this will help keep your staff safe and avoid workplace injuries; any boxes that are still too heavy to lift can be handled by your office mover.
