Do We Need to Empty Desks and Filing Cabinets Prior to an Office Relocation?

Office relocation often means plenty of stress, backbreaking work and lost revenue. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Nilson has been performing corporate moves for over 70 years. Our teams of movers know the best tips and tricks for the most efficient moves. Keep reading for our best tips for streamlining your upcoming office relocation.

To Empty Desks or Not Empty Desks?

One of the questions we get most often is whether clients need to empty desks and filing cabinets prior to moving. The good news is that the answer is typically no. If your drawers can lock, make sure to lock them. We can also use plastic wrap to secure drawers closed. This can save you a lot of hassle and cardboard boxes during your move.

What Else Can You Do to Streamline Your Move?

Wrap cables and wires neatly and secure the bundles with a zip tie or rubber band. Be careful not to pack boxes too heavy to lift. Remember to tape boxes closed. If someone drops the box, the tape will keep items inside.

Make the unpacking process easier with a uniform system for labeling boxes. Then, use the same labeling system on the desks and office doors at the new location. This makes it easy for your movers to figure out where each box and piece of furniture goes.
