Home Office Move-Houston Firm Recommends Freight

Posted on Mon, Sep 10, 2012

In our last blog, pack n send addressed moving your home office.  The discussion was about a move within the same city. If you are moving to another city, there a few more things to consider. First look at freighting your home office versus using a traditional mover.

Internet service will need to be established before you move. Boxes will need to be numbered and labeled. If you ship your office equipment via freight, make sure someone is on hand to meet the freight truck.

If you need an inside delivery for your office equipment when it is shipped via freight, make sure to arrange this ahead of time.

Packing an office requires preparation and organization.

Mark boxes with priority listed as to when they will need to be unpacked.  The computer and printer should usually be the first items, with items such as  pencils, erasers and trash cans much lower on the list for the unpacking. Organization on the origination end will help make the unloading a much 

The first thing you will want to do is write out a list of items you know you'll need throughout the move. These are going to be the very last things you pack. Then you will want to develop a list of non essential items that you can pack up and not need throughout the process. 

It may seem like no items are non essential, but you'd be amazed on the numerous items you'll pack up. Usually the items that are not generally needed at all times are such things as writing tools, paper (leave some out just in case), files and various items that generally sit and grow dust. 

If you have not used an office object during the past six months, it may be a great time to donate this item.  Why pay to freight something that you are no longer moving.

 It may be a good time to update your office equipment and office supplies. If you have been meaning to replace your old furniture, why not donate it, and purchase new furniture at your new location.  Use this move as a way to upgrade and update you office.

Keeping yourself organized with a small home office move can seem like a very difficult process, but it can be done. If you're worried that the process may be overwhelming for you, consider hiring a company to help with your freighting project.

Look for a company that can help you pack, freight and unpack. The entire process can be managed for you, making your move worry-free.

We know how hard it can be moving an office, a home and any other space requiring a move.  If you choose to pack your boxes yourself, look for a company that is willing and able to sell you discounted moving boxes and materials  

Organization is the key to a smooth home office move. If you need help or have any questions about a home office move, please feel free to contact pack n send at 713 266 1450.
