When it comes to office moving, companies often forget the number of expensive computers and electronics that are part of an office relocation. While you and your employees may be able to box up your belongings, furniture and other items, moving electronics shouldn’t be left to inexperienced movers. At Capitol Relocation & Logistics, we’ve been providing commercial relocation services to companies in the Connecticut and Western Massachusetts areas for more than 60 years. In this time, we’ve become well versed in what it takes to move a company of any size, and how important proper moving techniques can be, especially when it relates to computers and electronics.
Use the following tips to ensure all of your electronics make it in one piece from your current office to your new location.
Tips When Moving Office Electronics
It’s all about the packing
A large part of a successful office move has to do with proper packing techniques. With electronics, it’s key to protect these expensive items with proper packing procedures. If you’ve saved the existing boxes and packing material that came with the electronics, you’re in better shape, but if not, it’s critical to add padding and protection to electronics to prevent scratching and damage during transit.
Label all of your items
When you’re unhooking mountains of wires and cables, you may think that you’ll remember where everything goes at your new location, but you’re likely mistaken. Spend the time to properly label each component as well as all cables and wires so that you’ll easily be able to hook them up at your new office.
Be conscious of temperature
Most types of electronics are susceptible to extreme heat and cold. For this reason, it’s important to properly plan for when and how your electronics will be moved. It’s best to not leave any electrical components on a moving truck or van for too long or else you may be left with an expensive bill to replace equipment that became damaged during transport.
Hire a professional moving company
