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.

  • Would definitely recommend

    BCL are a great team of people that are very friendly and efficient with it. The move was stress-free and this was mainly down to the hard work of the BCL Team. We would definitely recommend them. The team were excellent and we have no issues with the service they provided. All the guys were friendly and very efficient and excellently managed by Andy.

    I had used them before and were happy with the service. Only a small comment of where the guys stay overnight - they had to travel from Morden to central London which took around 2 hours each way. That is a lot on top of a busy day packing/loading/unloading. I'm not sure somewhere closer in would be easier for them?

  • We used [BCL] for our last move

    Very helpful and knowledgeable. We used them for our last move and had a good service at a reasonable and competitive cost. The other men removed and placed the furniture into the new office well. I appreciate it was a long day for them – but they worked hard – so, thank you.
