Office/commercial packing is very different to packing your personal belongings. Packing needs to be meticulous and detailed and minimum unpacking time needs to be considered as well.
Remember that packing an office leads to down time of your business. This is something that you need to minimize at all costs. This is where thinking, planning and professional movers comes into play. First of all, make sure you have adequate packing boxes and materials. One rule to remember is to never mix files or customer sensitive material. Even if it means more boxes and more materials, make sure you pack things in a manner that makes it easier for you to relocate your office in the most time efficient manner possible.
Another way of making an efficient office move is to make a floor plan of the new location and then number the boxes according to the locations. This way, each person knows what boxes belong to them and this makes unpacking that much faster. Desk packing as it is most commonly known allows each person to be responsible for their own stuff.
Commercial moving companies will also act as your consultants during the move. Listen to them carefully as they are experienced in this. They will give you valuable advice. But also, you can speak to them and tell them what you would consider an ideal move. This way you can work WITH the consultants and come up with a moving plan that best suits your business.
Keep in mind that you are going to be moving sensitive material. Therefore, security of the stuff being moved is something you need to consider very carefully. Speak to your commercial mover about this.
