Is your office moving to a new location soon? If so, you may be in the process of hiring one of the many office moving companies or office furniture installers in your area. While this is a crucial step in your facility decommissioning process, it’s generally a good idea to let the pros handle your office furniture.
If you’re creating your own office furniture installation checklist for when you arrive at your new location, however, you may be at a loss for what to put on it. Here is a quick office relocation guide complete with the types of supplies you’ll need for your new facility.

Desks can range in size from small platforms that fit into a cubicle to large, heavy desks in an executive office. No matter how small or large they are, it’s generally best to have a professional put them together.
Sometimes, desks are attached to cubicle walls, but other times, these office walls are freestanding structures. In order to develop the best layout possible, work with an office furniture installation company with experience in office design.
Whether you have the top office chairs for ergonomic comfort or a basic model, chairs need to be transported safely and efficiently. They may also need to be taken apart and put back together in shipping. Check with an installation service about what to do with your office chairs.
Other Tables and Chairs
Chairs and other surfaces aren’t just limited to those that workers use. Your conference room table or tables will need efficient transport, too. If you have any chairs, couches, or other types of tables in the lobby, they may also require set up.
Whether you use portable filing cabinets or a more stationary system, you’ll need to make sure that there is plenty of room for them in your new building. If you’re unable to move them yourself, get a moving company to install them for you.
One major issue with office furniture and facility decommissioning is that IT equipment (including computers, telephones, copiers, servers, modems, and routers) needs to be moved safely — and set up just as it was or better than before.
