Transporting electronic equipment from your old office to your new location is a lot trickier than it may seem. It takes a great deal of organization, planning, and expertise to ensure proper and efficient execution. To guarantee that everything goes off without a hitch, you should consider hiring professional IT equipment movers. In the over 30 years we’ve been in the office relocation business, we’ve worked with numerous clients and provided them with proficient IT disconnect and reconnect services.
Moving IT equipment is a lot like handling precious cargo. Sensitive data can easily be lost if the equipment is mishandled or damaged during the move, culminating in the need for potentially expensive technological replacements or repairs. Many businesses also use this time to evaluate all of their technological equipment and decide what stays at the old office, what gets retired or donated, and what makes the journey to the new location.
With all of that in mind, it’s crucial to plan every last detail of your office relocation. Come up with a few backup plans so that you can expect the unexpected. When it comes to moving IT equipment, it pays to be prepared. Here are a few important tips to keep in mind.

Creating a comprehensive inventory of all of your current equipment can help you make some important decisions about what to keep and what to dispose of during the planning process. Save time and money by eliminating items you no longer need and allocate funds to updating some of your older equipment if need be. Moving provides a fresh start and an excellent opportunity to improve your business operations.
Protective packing materials such as tape, cardboard boxes, cardboard box organizers to secure things in place, bubble wrap, and markers are all important items to have on hand before and during your move. Make an itemized list of moving supplies you need to buy well in advance so that you can stay organized. Label every item to ensure each employee is given access to the correct equipment they need to perform their jobs after the move. Take the time to visit the new location at least once or twice before the move-in date so you can map out where each piece of equipment will be set up.
Moving computers, photocopiers, printers, servers, and conference room technology takes a great deal of skill and know-how. From the disconnecting phase, to proper storage, managing temperature changes, and reconnecting them at the new office, our IT moving experts can make sure your technology is safely transported to the new location and properly installed once it gets there.
