A residential move often entails a significant amount of coordination and planning, and a commercial move is no different. In fact, moving your office typically requires even more preparation, given that you may be moving dozens of people instead of just one family. However, with the proper organization, you can successfully relocate your business or organization with little worry or inconvenience.
Begin Your Planning Early
Many components go into a commercial move. First, you may have to coordinate with your landlord when and how you can move your possessions from your old building. Your new space may demand a different office organization, including new cubicle setups, phone numbers, and parking spaces. You’ll also have to determine how your move will impact business in the weeks before and after your move. In order to address these many moving details, begin planning for your move at least six months before the relocation date.
Remind Your Employees of Your Move
No matter how big or small your company, your employees will be impacted by your relocation. To minimize the effects of the move, keep your workers in the loop throughout the process. Tell them the date of the relocation, the date by which they must have their personal belongings packed, and the dates they may not have access to telephone or internet service.
Hire a Professional Moving Company
Regardless of how organized you efforts may be, you should not attempt to relocate your company without professional commercial movers. Don’t let a dropped computer or smashed desk make you realize the value of your possessions. A professional moving company has both the resources and experience to move your business with ease and security. A moving company can also provide valuable assistance as you prepare for your move.

Tools may seem too bulky or heavy to pack, but with a little preparation, you can move them as easily as any other item in your house. This video demonstrates proper packing techniques for tools.
First, make sure you have all necessary packing devices, including moving boxes, packing paper, packing wrap, and tape. If you have tools that already come in a carrying case, simply secure the case with packing wrap to ensure it will not open during your move. Group all other tools according to size and shape—be sure to place your heavier tools at the bottom of your boxes and leave no empty spaces.

Making sure that your possessions are properly packed for your impending move requires more than a couple moving boxes and some old newspaper. Though residential movers are trained to transport your belongings with care, you too must do your part to pack your items correctly. Consider the following reasons for careful packing when preparing for a move:
Avoid Property Damage
The most important factor to keep in mind when moving is protecting your belongings. Though your plates or picture frames may seem sturdy enough, they can chip and crack if allowed to bang against other decorations or pieces of dishware. To ensure that all of your possessions arrive intact at your new home, wrap them in protective covering and pack them securely in your moving boxes. Do not tape up boxes without first filling all empty spaces to prevent items from shifting while in transit.
Facilitate Moving Day
Packing your possessions correctly can make for a smooth moving day. If you don’t take caution during the packing process, your residential movers will likely have to repack your boxes or take additional time while moving them to avoid damage. This will slow down your move and possibly increase expense. To make your move easier on everyone involved, take all necessary measures to pack your belongings correctly.
Ease the Unpacking Process
Being conscientious during the packing process can make unpacking much easier, too. When you coordinate the items you pack and make sure each box contains items for only one room, you can make the transition into your new home quick and effortless. Instead of throwing whatever you see into your moving boxes, take the time to organize your items according to where they belong in your new location.

The key to a successful international move is detailed planning and organization. In addition to preparing for the regulations, passport, and visa requirements in your new country, you also need to effectively pack up all of your belongings and have them carefully shipped overseas. Choosing the right international moving company to handle this process can significantly reduce your stress during this important journey.
Packing your items
Many countries have strict rules and regulations regarding the way international boxes are transported. For this reason, it’s important to choose a moving company that understands how to successfully pack and store your personal items. You will most likely need to pack your entire household for this move, including your fragile, expensive possessions. Professional movers will make this process easier by coming to your home and safely storing each personal item in a way that provides maximum protection.
Shipping your items
Once your moving company has packed everything away, the movers will collect the boxes from your home and transport them to the appropriate port. At this point, a freight-forwarding company will become responsible for ensuring that your items reach the international port located closest to your new home. Another moving company will handle your packages at this port and make sure that your possessions are cleared through customs. After clearance, the movers will be able to deliver your boxes to your new home.
Collecting your items
Because your international moving company will take care of the shipping logistics, you only need to worry about making it to your new home. As soon as your possessions reach the country, the moving company overseas will deliver each box to your doorstep. Depending on the company you are working with, these movers may also handle any necessary unloading and unpacking.
