Moving your office to consolidate with another requires a certain amount of preparation. After all, you want to make the best use of your available space as well as your other assets. This is a continuation of our previous blog post. This time, however, it’s not about decluttering paperwork, but about the rest of your movable assets.
How to declutter when moving office
- Binders and folders
Once you have decluttered and reorganized your paperwork, you will likely find a certain amount of empty space in your file cabinets and bookcases from binders, folders, etc. that have been emptied. Sort out and discard the binders and folders that are too damaged to be reused properly, and package the rest in moving boxes to be moved and stored with your office supplies.
2. General office supplies
From empty or dried-out pens and glue sticks to broken hole punchers and rulers: Over the years of operation, a lot of items have accumulated that cannot be put to good use anymore. Sort them out and make sure that you discard/recycle them safely.
Consider trading outdated electronics for slimmer, more modern versions. If you are consolidating to share the space with another office, it is also likely that many electronics are already available. That’s why it is probably a good idea to include the responsible parties from the other office to discuss the future sharing of equipment.
