4 Things To Keep In Mind When Moving Into A New Office Space

Whether you are moving to a new office, downscaling or just getting rid of that clutter so that you can have more room – being organised will save you from plenty of stress. And of the best ways is by going for a self-storage in Singapore. But, you will need to get the right unit size and pack your belongings so that you can maximise every square inch of the storage space.

If you’re planning to move into a new office space and you are wondering how to get this done – we’ve got great news for you! Here’s a quick guide on how you can organise your items to make sure everything is spick and span even with the move-in.

Choose a unit that fits

Before you get started on the packing or start planning the haulage, have you picked your office space? If yes, will all your office essentials and belongings fit inside? You need to know how much space you need for storage. Otherwise, you may end up going back with half your stuff – so get the size right. To make things easier on your end, you can estimate the volume of your stuff. Once you’ve got that settled, you’ll know how many boxes you will need to fit all your inventories.

So, when you’re on the search for an office space – try changing things up by picking a self-storage in Singapore. You’ll be able to sort out all your storage space and boost office productivity. Besides those benefits, workspaces at Work+Store also offer short-term lease and flexible arrangements which include contract transfer to other various services and products within our own establishments or our parent company, LHN Group. The wide variety comprises vending machine spots, serviced office or apartment, event venues and other types of products or services.

Label everything

Remembering where you kept everything a few weeks down the line can be tough especially when you’re busy handling other tasks during the move-in process. For an easier time, why not just label every box instead?

Not only will you remove the hassle of memorising every item in each respective box, checking off the items in your inventory list will be a smooth-sailing process as well.

Pack your belongings properly

Moving all your storage to another place means you need to take proactive steps to ensure the safety of your property. And there’s no better way to do it than to pack all your items according to the manufacturer’s instructions. More or less, it’s best done in a safe, padded box, specifically designed for the item. On the other hand, you can escape extra costs by refraining from putting plastic coverings over wooden items as it could trap moisture and cause mould damage. But while packing is an essential step in the move-in – selecting the ideal office unit will always be a top priority as well.

Move your priority items carefully

As you offload the boxes from the truck into the storage unit, arrange the boxes such that the bigger and heavier ones are underneath the lighter/smaller boxes. Since you have already labelled all the items earlier on, you will know to place your priority items in between two other boxes. It is done to ensure the box filled with them do not fall off – ensuring no harm or damage befalls the items.
