Office Moving Logistics
A qualified project manager from Sher-Del Transfer (a NYC Office Moving Company) will coordinate a date with the customer to discuss a logistical NYC office moving plan for the upcoming relocation. This process includes:
- Setting up a floor plan
- Deciding what items will be relocated
- Deciding items that can potentially be purged
Customers must make sure that all insurance requirements are met and up to date with the buildings they are moving out of and moving into. Freight elevators must be booked ahead of the move dates in all buildings to avoid any impediment with the office move. IT must be disconnected and reconnected by a third party. Check with leasing companies for any printers, faxes, coffee machines, water machines or any other product that is contracted out. Leasing companies may require their own team to move items.
Upon completion of floor plan numbering, one of Sher-Del Transfer’s office moving company supervisors will arrive at your current occupied space and assist with tagging all items for relocation. This includes:
- File banks
Once your current location is marked and tagged, our NYC office moving company supervisor will put up spot tags/placards at the new location. This will ensure your workers have no trouble finding their new work space.
There is no reason to move files, documents and/or boxes that can otherwise be disposed of prior to office moving day. Sher-Del Transfer NYC office moving company can assist in organizing a Purge campaign. We can supply fully mobile and secure document shred bins that, once loaded, can be carted away to a certified paper shredding and recycling facility.
After moving into a new space, customers and building managers don’t like finding new scratches/holes in their walls, ceilings or floors. Before the move-in process, Sher-Del Transfer office moving company does an extensive floor and wall protection according to the guidelines of the building. This includes Masonite, Coroflex and corner guards to prevent any damage. Once the office move is complete, Sher-Del Transfer removes all floor and wall protection from the new office.
Prior to your office move, Sher-Del Transfer will deliver packing materials for your staff to pack their belongings. Materials include commercial totes, moving crates, library conveyors for binders and books, commercial bins for plants, computers, printers, or other large items.
We are specialists in NYC office moving services. Like you, we recognize that computers, peripherals and other technology equipment are essential to your company’s continued productivity. That’s why we take every possible precaution to protect your company’s assets.
Before we move them, your computers are individually blanket wrapped and placed in specialized computer moving bins that are mounted on dollies. Monitors are placed into bubble wrap bags and then placed in the bin along with the computer. Each keyboard, mouse, cable and connector is packed in a zip lock bag, marked and placed with its corresponding computer and monitor. Once the bins are filled they are sealed to provide security and to avoid shifting or tilting during transport.
They are then transported to your new facility where they are placed in their designated locations. Other technology equipment is handled with the same care and attention to detail. In regard to all your electronic equipment, we ask that prior to pick-up you make certain to unplug all machines and secure cords as needed.
Records and Libraries
File allocation and moving your library records is a very important task. Our company’s office moving team specializes in file allocation. During the tagging process, our supervisor takes the time to review with the customer file bank capacity to determine what can be brought over to the new location. All filing cabinets and library shelves in the customer’s current space and new office are labeled with matching pre-printed tags so the Sher-Del office moving team has a matching list to cross-reference.
Moving can be a stressful time for a customer which is why Sher-Del Transfer does everything it can to ease the burden. On office moving day Sher-Del Transfer arrives with its professional staff and gets right to work. Starting in the morning, Sher-Del Transfer is preparing furniture, technology and the customer’s documents to be relocated.
Abiding by building guidelines, as soon as Sher-Del Transfer is granted access to remove items from origin, we are moving in a quick and decisive manner to keep your office move on time and within budget. Upon completion of the move out, we perform a complete walk through with our client to make sure nothing has been left behind.
At the destination Sher-Del Transfer has a NYC office moving team on hand to properly place all incoming items to their correct location. Our staff will follow the guidelines and floor plan set up by its project manager and supervisor before the move.
