An office move goes way beyond shifting your goods from one location to another. Ask anyone who has done it recently-they will tell you that the whole task of relocating can be more overwhelming and stressful than one can realise- especially if they are doing it for the first time.
An although hiring professional removalists can help lighten your relocation load and make your office transition hassle-free, there’s still a lot of things that you as an office owner will need to do on your own.
“Richards Gold Coast Removals”- your reliable experts for smooth Gold Coast office removals shares with you some smart packing hacks to keep track of all the office stuff.
It may seem not too much, but colour coding or posting notes on your cartons go a long way in keeping the relocation organised. So, get a hold of some stickers, markers, and even sticky notes to systematically label your boxes.
Like Red mark for all office IT stuff and Blue for general office item and appliances. To make it more clear; you can add a note to the coloured sticker as a reference to what lies inside. And this will make it easier for you to relocate it accordingly with the necessary safety measures.
Make use of small plastic bags and bubble wraps for your office furniture. One smart way would be to dismantle the furniture and seal it up with a thick plastic wrap. And then you can secure them more using duct tape.
Furthermore; you can make use of small-sized move boxes to store away those bolts and screws. You can use a ziplock or baggie and keep it in the box containing its matching furniture.
Properly seal the top with tape and then label them for your reference.
You can look to fold your cords (be it HDMI or USB cords) in empty toilet rolls and then colour code it matching the shade of the packing boxes.
Example- if the conference room box is Blue, then add a blue tape to it. This is something we advise our clients to do during office relocations in the Gold Coast as it makes it easier for us to know that this box is for the conference room.
You don’t wish for any of your items to break in the relocation process. But, accidents always happen unannounced, and so it is always better to be prepared.
For fragile items like mugs, bathroom mirrors, plates, drinking glass and even computer screens, laptops, bulbs, etc.; add extra clothing and linens to those boxes. Use extra bubble wraps for your LCDs or presentation screens.
Make sure everything is nice and tight. It will prevent them from moving around and keep them safe from shocks and impacts.
Use rubber bands for keeping all the pens and pencils inside your supply room desk. This will keep them together preventing any chance of them flying out during the move. Keep all of them in one place.
Of course, the distance professional local removalists on the Gold Coast have to cover for transporting your belongings is one of the most crucial elements. The relocation can be carried out two blocks away from your old house, or it can be an interstate removal as well. Therefore, don’t forget to consider this factor in any way.
The quantity of things that need to be relocated is another major factor. The number factor will let the professionals estimate how much time it will take to fill the moving truck and get going. The number of belongings also determines your packing time too.
It is crucial to get everything disconnected before the professionals come to your house and start the relocation process. Otherwise, the removalists will not be able to move all the essentials within the designated time frame, especially the electrical devices that you will re-use in your new home.
Now, it’s time for some essential hacks that will help you in dealing with the time-crunch you may face.
Tip 1: Consider fixing the schedule for packing and moving with at least half an hour extra time in your hands. Mention it on your daily schedule included in the removal process.
Tip 2: It will be an unwise decision to decide to manage the entire packing process following DIY techniques as you cannot sort and pack things as efficiently as the professional experts can.
Get the help from efficient Gold Coast furniture removalists in advance and let them handle everything right from the beginning, while you utilise the free time in other crucial tasks related to the relocation.
Tip 3: Push yourself when you still have plenty of time in your hands as because pushing yourself for any work after failing the deadline may not be of any use.
Tip 4: It is always a wise decision to finish off the complicated works as early as you can. For instance, make sure the antiques or fragile glassware is packed and removed first as it takes immense time and precision to deal with these belongings compared to other things.
Remember the quote, “Until we can manage time, we can manage nothing else.”
Opting for the professional help right from the beginning will help you a lot for developing time-management skills. Be prepared for it as the timeframe for relocation is going to be tough. Don’t panic and go according to the proper planning to make sure nothing goes out of the place.
