As an employee, we understad that things can get pretty hectic around the office on moving day, especially when you need to get your work done for the day! Whether you’re simply moving your desk to a new floor, or moving to an entirely new building, we’ve put together 6 useful tips you can use to make the moving process a little bit easier.
- Clean around your workspace – take some time to do a thorough clean of your work area. You can start with sorting through all your old papers, memos, and receipts. Consider filing the important ones and shred the ones that are just taking up space. One good idea is to scan all important documents to your computer and recycle the papers.
- Be consistent with your labeling – you don’t want half your files and folders to end up at someone’s else’s desk. It will take you half the day to track down the rest of your files and folders!
- Leave the filing cabinet as-is – consider leaving all your papers and folders in the filing cabinet. Most moving companies will shrink wrap anything with drawers, so you can save some time, and some space, by leaving the contents of your cabinets alone.
- Take home personal items. If you’re worried about personal items getting misplaced, such as photo frames, posters or plants, arrange to take them home the day before the move.
