Prepare employees for the move and proceed with intelligent sorting: key steps

The preparation of employees for the relocation of the company as well as the sorting of professional effects go through a series of critical chronological steps:

Inform Employees Of The Moving Schedule

It stems from the common sense you say. Not for everybody. Whether in small or large companies, internal communication is not always perfect. A bit of useful advice, do not go beyond this essential step and communicate extensively with your employees on the back- planning of your professional move.

Sort With Care And Discernment

After the information comes the time for action: sorting. Carefully organize your documents and business equipment. Do not burden yourself with unnecessary things.

Label For Better Transfer

Labeling is a significant step in moving an office. Of color labels allow movers to read in one glance the floor and the department to which property is affected. The labels with initials or trigrams can also help to know the membership of bins.

Choose Moving Boxes In Different Colors

Our professional movers advise you to use plastic boxes of a particular color for the effects of collective use and another color for each employee’s professional effects.

Boxes For Archives

Assuming that the moving company rents the plastic moving boxes, no records are available. The longer you leave the documents there, the more it will cost you. In this case, preferably opt for cardboard boxes.

Leave The Keys On The Boxes And Storage Cabinets

Many employees have this unfortunate tendency to empty their storage boxes and cabinets, lock them and take them with them. Bad idea! It is recommended that you leave the keys on your storage furniture for a good reason. When these pieces of furniture are moved, the interior shelves they contain fall due to the movements, and the tabs used to hold them end up in the drawers or the slides of the drawers, shutters, or doors. Result: the employee can no longer open his cupboards.
