Relocating Business Files

Friday 11 January 2013

When you're relocating your office, your filing cabinets and cupboards should to be empty. This usually means a relatively high volume of removals crates required to pack their contents.

Relocating Business Files

Many people think it is best to have their employees pack the files to be moved. However, this could create a serious risk to your business, with unavoidable down time to allow your staff to complete this task of self-packing and unpacking such a high volume of crates.

Bulk filing - the contents of cabinets and shelving - is a labour-intensive task, and many companies think they'll be able to save some time and/or money by packing and unpacking these files themselves. However, it is normally much more time and cost effective to have your specialist office removals company to assist with or completely pack and unpack your bulk filing.

The benefits of having a specialist team handle your file relocation are many:

  • You'll have full access to client files right up to and immediately following the move, instead of files packed in crates for days or even weeks before and after your move.
  • Your office continues to look clean and tidy, particularly in client-facing areas.
  • No health & safety risks for your staff through manual handling or blocked gangways. Even if some of your staff are trained in manual handling, the risk to them and others will be high.

And don't forget - when you're moving is a perfect time to also consider if you no longer need files or access to them. You can arrange for secure shredding of unwanted documents along with archive storage for documents you are required to keep but don't need to physically access on a regular basis.

A specialist office removals company can help you determine the best method for relocating and storing your files, saving you and your company time and money.
