A Checklist for a Successful Office Furniture Removal

Office furniture removal can be complicated and overwhelming. It can also be a simple process if you recruit an office furniture removal company that specialises in office relocation. There is an intricate network of logistics involved in moving offices, so you should not have to spend your time with or focus on the basic requirements of packing and unpacking and disassembly and reassembly. An expert office furniture removal company will take care of all aspects of your relocation for you, affording you time to dedicate to other areas of the move, such as how it will affect the staff and transitioning of systems (your “digital furniture”). Our checklist can guide you through the process of office furniture removal, from the day you decide to move to the moment the last desk is in place at the new premises.

Your Office Furniture Removal Checklist

You can easily follow the below list before you get started, but if you still need expert advice about your relocation, do not hesitate to contact Elliott, your specialist office furniture removal company.

  • Plan the move. The move actually starts as soon as you decide to undertake it, and not on the day when all the boxes leave the old premises and make their way to the new one. You need to plan as far ahead as you can, as this will give you time to get all the necessary contingencies in place and to ensure the transition goes as smoothly as possible. The biggest mistake you can make is to go at it unprepared and hoping for the best instead of coming up with a solid plan of action.

  • Create an inventory of everything in the office. You can do this on your own by taking note of and writing down every single item that needs to be moved, from the stationery in your desk drawer to the desk itself. We, your moving company, will request this information in order to plan and execute the move properly, such as ordering a specific number of boxes and making sure we have a large enough team on hand to handle the move. Your other option (and the one we most recommend) is to allow a member of our team to conduct the survey on your behalf. We will create an inventory of all the items that need to be relocated while offering recommendations to guide your preparation for the moving day.

  • Take note of special arrangements that need to be made and notify us. If you have objects or items that require special packaging or transportation (like valuable artworks), you need to notify us beforehand. We will usually take note of these when we create the inventory, but we also request that you notify us of any and all special requirements for the move.

  • Get a quote. Once you have an idea of how many items you need to move, when the move should ideally take place and where everything needs to be moved, you need to request a quote from us. This is absolutely free, and our online quote form can be completed very quickly if you have the relevant information at hand.

  • Get insurance. Office furniture removal is not without risk. While our movers take great care to handle your items carefully during the process, there is always a chance of unforeseen or unavoidable accidents taking place. If anything happens, you will always have peace of mind knowing that your insurance offers the necessary coverage. We will handle all the calculations and the application process for you.

  • Packing and unpacking. Even the smallest of offices may have a large number of boxes after packing is completed. You do not always know how many items are in your workplace until you either take stock of everything or have to move it all. You can also leave the packing and unpacking to us. We make sure to pack your items for safe and secure transportation to their new home.
