How to Pick a Moving Company

* Ensure that the company is licensed and insured.
* Check with the Federal or State Department of Transportation to see whether the moving company you are considering has a license to operate. 
* Make sure that you are not liable if a mover gets injured on your premises.
* How do they charge hourly or by weight? Are there any additional fees? Do they charge extra for large items?
* What are the procedures if damage or loss occurs?

Organizing Tips

*Reduce clutter at your new office by eliminating unnecessary files. Donate any unwanted office furniture to charity.
* Fill out a change of address form the post office to forward to your mail and notify your clients that your office is moving.
* Ask employees to remove all items from the refrigerator.
* Keep a folder for all moving documents for easy reference and payment records.
* Contact building management regarding freight elevator hours or special required documents for professional movers.

Packing Tips

* For boxes with delicate contents, clearly mark "Fragile" or "This Side Up" to lessen the potential for damage. * * Wrap fragile items.
* Set aside an essentials box with work supplies or materials that you’ll need to access on the first day.
* Used boxes are not always sturdy enough to hold heavy items.
* Label boxes with the rooms or offices where the contents will be unpacked.
* Pack heavier items in smaller boxes and lighter items in larger boxes.
* Pack dishes or coffee mugs on the edge instead of packing flat to reduce the potential for breakage.
* Remind employees to prepare their desks and personal effects for transport.
