7 Ways to Protect Equipment During Your Office Move

  1. Protect Device Screens

Use blankets, sheets and shrink wrap to keep the screens of computers and other equipment from cracking or chipping during your commercial move.

  1. Organize all Cords and Cables

Either pack accessories like cables and chargers with each piece of equipment, or label them and pack them all together. Have a consistent system so each system is moved complete with its accessories.

  1. Pack Extra Furniture Feet and Felt Pads

These often-overlooked supplies can easily fall off during furniture transport, but are important to protecting the floor of your office and allowing easier furniture movement. Have some felt pads to spare when office chairs or reception couches inevitably lose theirs.

  1. Get Custom Packing Materials for Tech Equipment

When you move sensitive equipment, you don’t want it to rattle or move in any way that could damage its internal components. Many moving companies or manufacturers can help you find customized packing boxes or customized foam padding to keep your fragile equipment secure.

  1. Label Equipment to Reduce Handling Time

The less your equipment moves, the less vulnerable it is to damage. If you label boxes and packed equipment by where it needs to go in your new office, your movers can pack it accordingly. That way, they don’t have to move boxes to look for others, or move boxes multiple times to different rooms.

  1. Don’t Forget About Door, Floors and Carpets

Don’t overlook the doors, floors and carpets of both your old and new offices. Protect them from damage by wrapping doors laying temporary flooring (like tarp or cardboard) over floors and carpets.

  1. Insure Your Equipment and Furniture
