Packing for your Office Move

Packing

We will provide crates five days (or when advised) in advance of your move date and we will leave them with you until we receive advice that a collection is required.  Please ensure that the crates are not overfilled, so that they can be neatly stacked on top of each other.

If required, Office Moving International can supply expert packers to assist your staff with pre-packing and unpacking

To avoid extra costs, all crates should be made available for collection as quickly as possible after the move.

Filing

Filing cabinets (4-drawer) or similar should be emptied unless specifically instructed by our representative, Cabinets should be locked and keys retained by your personnel.  If they cannot be locked, please secure with tape (available from OMI)

Desks and tables

All desks should be emptied.  Please do not lock drawers.  Label each section of desk or table as some may have to be dismantled before being moved.

Bookcases/cupboards
