Do: Use only the special move “tags” that your mover has provided. Tag everything no matter how small or seemingly inconsequential! For example; when a desk has a removable return, both pieces must be tagged. Bundles of computer cables, floor mats, white, trash cans, typewriters, individual computer components and peripherals etc.… must all be individually tagged. Items not tagged will not be moved.
Do: Tag items in locations that are easy for the mover to spot. For example, tag…
- Bookcases on top
- Chairs on the back rest
- Storage cabinets and file cabinets on the front top
- Desks, tables and credenzas on
- Tag boxes on the ends – do not place tags
Do Not: Use your name when labeling, tagging and marking. Use your assigned number only. Placement of furniture and equipment at your new facility will identified by number, not by name. If you do not know your assigned number, see your company’s move manager who will assign a number for you to use.
Do: Completely empty the contents of the following articles (these items will be flipped on end onto dollies – contents that are not emptied will fall out!)…
- Table drawers
- Storage cabinets
Do Not: Empty vertical (the narrow type) file cabinets. These will be moved full.
Do: Leave only the two (2) bottom drawers of lateral (the wide type) file cabinets full. All drawers above the bottom two drawers must be completely emptied.
Do: Plan on making all electrical and mechanical disconnections yourself (unless other specific arrangements have been made with your mover).
Do Not: Move photocopiers or Printers with toner installed inside. Notify all service or lease agents that you are moving photocopiers or computer equipment that is under contract.
Do: Secure personal items such as money, computer discs, and items of personal value. Take these items with you to your new office location.
