Moving your office, whether you have a home office or one in a local office building, packing everything for the move to a new location presents a number of unique challenges. Many of the items in your office are delicate and require extra care when being packed and moved. At The Other Moving Company (TOMCO), we want to make sure your move goes off without a hitch.

Here are a few tips for packing your office for the move.
- Moving Boxes – You will need a selection of sturdy moving boxes in a variety of sizes. The boxes don’t have to be new; you can pick up used boxes at your local grocery and liquor stores, providing they are clean and dry. If possible, when packing your electronics equipment use the original boxes, as they provide the equipment with the best protection during the move.
- Packing Paper – You can never use enough packing paper to protect your office equipment. If you have access to ink-free newsprint, you can use this. However, you should avoid newspapers as the ink can and will transfer to your delicate equipment, damaging or ruining it. Protect your delicate electronics is to use bubble wrap.
- Disconnect Your Office Equipment – One of the first steps in office storage and moving is to disconnect everything. But before you do, we recommend you take pictures of how everything is connected. Label each cable, then place the cables, your surge suppressors, keyboards, routers, modems, and other small items in plastic bags and label them. Place everything on a table or counter that make it easy for our professional packers to reach.
