Tips for moving your office

Moving to a new office can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not prepared. But don’t worry, we at PKM Transport have got your back! We’ve helped numerous businesses relocate to their new office space with ease, and we’re here to share some tips to make your office move as smooth as possible.

Before you give us a call, there are a few things you can do to make the process easier for everyone. Firstly, take measurements of large items like desks and cabinets to ensure they’ll fit through corridors and entrances at your new office. Draw up a floor plan for desk layout and equipment, and show it to key employees for their advice and approval. You don’t want to spend the first week at your new office moving furniture around!

Once you’ve got your plan in place, it’s time to give PKM Transport a call. We’ll inspect both your old and new office premises to give you an estimate, and you can send us your floor plan and new office layout to make sure everything goes smoothly on moving day.

When it’s time to move your office furniture, make sure you mark each piece with coloured stickers or labels so we know where to place them in the new office. Don’t forget to clearly indicate any furniture or equipment that does NOT need to be moved to your new offices. And, most importantly, take extra care of the health and safety of your employees. Don’t let them lift heavy items – we’ve got you covered!

Our relocation specialists know how to tape up filing cabinets (which are usually full), box-up equipment and wrap computers safely before packing them into our trucks. We’ll take care of everything, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. And if you have any confidential files or documents, make sure to secure them or shred them before the move.

Moving doesn’t have to be a headache! With PKM Transport, your office move will be as easy as pie. We’ll take care of the heavy lifting (literally!) and make sure everything gets to its new home safely and on time. So, sit back, relax, and let us do what we do best – move you to your new office space with ease.

PKM Transport will ensure this box is packed separately and delivered to your new home first so you’ll have everything you need for the first night without having to dig through all your boxes.

Why Moving is So Stressful and How to Manage It

 

Moving to a new home or office can be an exciting time, but it can also be incredibly stressful. According to several medical studies, the stress of moving can have a significant impact on our mental and physical health.

One study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology found that the stress of moving can lead to increased levels of cortisol, a hormone associated with stress. This can result in a range of negative physical and mental health effects, such as increased blood pressure, heart rate, and anxiety.

Another study published in the journal Occupational Medicine found that the stress of moving can also lead to decreased job satisfaction and increased absenteeism among employees.

So, why is moving so stressful? There are several reasons:

  • The physical demands of packing and moving heavy and bulky furniture items can be tiring and overwhelming.
  • The uncertainty and lack of control over the moving process can also be stressful.
  • The financial burden of moving can also add to the stress.
  • The fear of the unknown, such as making new friends, adjusting to a new environment, and the possibility of not liking the new place.

However, there are several ways to manage the stress of moving:

  1. Plan ahead: Start planning your move as early as possible. This will give you more time to organize and prepare, reducing the last-minute stress.
  2. Get organized: Make a list of tasks and deadlines, and break them down into manageable chunks. This will help you stay on top of things and feel more in control of the process.
  3. Seek professional help: Consider hiring a professional moving company to handle the heavy lifting and transportation of your furniture. This will take a lot of the physical stress off of you and your loved ones.
  4. Seek emotional support: Moving can be an emotional time. Don’t be afraid to reach out to friends and family for support and encouragement.
  5. Take care of yourself: Make sure to take care of your physical and emotional well-being during the moving process. This may include getting enough sleep, exercise, and eating well.
  6. Find ways to cope with the stress: try to find ways to cope with the stress, this can be through meditation, yoga, exercise, or talking to a therapist.

In conclusion, moving can be a stressful time, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. By planning ahead,

getting organized, seeking professional help, seeking emotional support, taking care of yourself, and finding ways to cope with the stress, you can manage the moving process and reduce the negative impact on your mental and physical health.
