Moving is stressful, but moving a business is a different level of stress. When you are getting ready to move your business, it is a big endeavor. If done right, you will find that it doesn’t have to be as stressful as you might think. All it takes is a little planning, organizing and investing in the process and you will find it goes rather smooth. Good Time Moving & Storage is here to share some of our best tips for moving a business to help make your business move and easier one.
How Early Should You Start Packing to Move?
As soon as you decide you are going to move your business, you need to get started in the organization and planning process. There is likely more to move than you would normally move in a home, so you should plan for more time to complete the moving process. It can be easy to underestimate the time it’s going to take to get everything moved. The earlier you start, the better off you will be.
Gather & Organize the Right Moving Supplies
You are going to need sturdy boxes to move your business. It can be easy to take box donations, but in the end, they are probably not high-quality boxes and won’t be able to support the weight of your equipment. You will also need bubble wrap, packing tape, labels, markers for labeling and plastic wrap.
Safely Pack Computers & Cables Properly
If you are like most businesses, you use high tech computers and equipment to keep your business running. They are expensive and need to be moved differently than other equipment. Here is how you move computers and cables properly.
– Wrap each computer individually with a blanket and plastic wrap to keep a good hold on it. You should never stack any computers on top of each other. You should also avoid stacking other items on top of computers as well.
– Do not pack computer monitors in boxes. You should wrap each of them in blankets with plastic wrap or packing tape. Do not touch the monitor screen with any tape as it can cause damage.
– Safeguard your data by “parking” your hard drives when possible. The best way to safeguard your hard drive is to use a removable hard drive or one on a cloud-based service.
Prepare Office Furniture for Moving
Sometimes the furniture in your office is oddly shaped and difficult to pack in a truck. You should take care when moving your office furniture so that you don’t find yourself buying it again when you get to your new location. This can be done by properly wrapping it all and avoiding stacking it on other objects.
