Tips for stress-free office removals
Office moving can be a complex and time-consuming undertaking. You don’t want your relocation to impact your business continuity, so here are some tips to enable you to move in an efficient and stress-free manner.
Home moves are an ideal opportunity to declutter and get rid of anything you no longer need. Office moves are no exception to this rule. Do you have anything sitting in corners or office cupboards unused for months or years? Maybe redundant furniture, computers or printers. Take a methodical walk around your office space and figure out what you do and don’t need. You may be surprised by how much you can get rid of! Also, it’s worth bearing in mind that the cost of office space continues to rise, and decluttering can help to reduce the square footage you need to pay for in your new location.
Perry’s Data Shred
Don’t let unnecessary paperwork clog up your new office space. It’s a good idea to shred and dispose of any documents you don’t need before your move. You can meet your GDPR requirements and protect yourself from data thieves by using Perry’s Data Shred. We provide a secure and confidential service, and are credited with a British Standard, BS EN 15713 – ‘Secure destruction of confidential material’ and so are ideal for commercial clients. You can also be sure that with our strong commitment to the environment and reducing our carbon footprint, that the paper shredded is sent back to a paper mill to be reused.
It’s possible to book a one-off collection before your move, and then, if required, something more regular once you’ve settled into your new office space. If you book regular collections, we provide a bin (for either inside the office or out) which is emptied at a pre-arranged date and time into bags to be removed and shredded off-site. Special rates are offered for large quantities. The collections could be weekly, monthly or bespoke. For one-off collections, bags are provided, along with security tags for sealing. With either type of collection, a Certificate of Destruction will be sent to you once the paper has been securely disposed of.

If you find you have too much to move, or you need to keep documents safely off-site, Perry’s have excellent storage or document storage facilities. If you have larger items or seasonal items that aren’t needed regularly you may well find that it is cheaper to let us store them for you rather than take up premium space in your office. You can be sure that all your stored items will be housed in a dry, secure container allocated only to you.
Plan your move
Planning is all important in commercial moving, so to help you we have developed an ‘Office and Commercial Checklist’ which you can download for free.
It’s an invaluable document which will help you to make sure you have everything covered and enable you to plan every aspect of your move, from getting your quote, to insurance to who to tell about your move, along with an informative and useful ‘To Do’ list.
