Whatever the reason for your office move, businesses need to consider the best options for the process of relocating the location of their company in order to reduce the amount of hassle and fuss. It’s absolutely essential that office moves are carried out quickly and efficiently to minimise delays on the business, which can be costly. There are some simple things that you can do to make sure your office move is as stress-free as possible. As experts in office clearance Sheffield, Clearance and Clean-Up have put together four helpful tips on moving offices.
Everyone knows that regular de-cluttering is essential for a creative and productive working environment, but it’s easy to let it fall to the wayside when life gets busy. When packing, deciding what to bin and what to keep, and generally sorting through the contents of your office, start small. Empty drawers, clear desktops and tackle bookcases first. Getting these smaller items out of the way will allow room for moving furniture and shifting larger items such as desks, shelving units and chairs.
Check for Sensitive Documents
Take care when packing and sorting out what to keep and what to dispose of. There may well be a number of sensitive documents containing private information or customer details, and you need to ensure that they are treated appropriately. For those you need to keep, make sure they are clearly labelled to prevent them being misplaced, and for those that can be destroyed, ensure that they are done so in the correct manner. Any archived files should be removed, clearly labelled and stacked neatly.
Waste Reporting and Compliance
Getting rid of waste, rubbish and unwanted office items isn’t as easy as you may think. As a company, you have a duty of care to make sure that your waste is disposed of in the correct way. As experts in office clearance Sheffield, Clearance and Clean Up posses a full waste carriers licence and are compliant with the waste electrical directive to ensure that electrical waste (WEEE) is directed away from landfill.
Specify a Completion Date
A sensible way to ensure that your office is cleared on time is to agree a date by which it needs to be cleared and work back from there. It’s worth leaving a few days spare in case the clearance overruns; it’s easy to underestimate just how much needs to be done.
