Moving to a new home or office across town has the potential to be a stressful experience without the help of a professional mover, but moving to a new state is an even more involved and time-consuming process.

Retrieving vital records, discontinuing services you no longer need, and changing your address are some of the steps that should be on your interstate move checklist.

If you’re getting ready to relocate your business to a new office, you may be wondering about the best way to pack your office electronics. While your employees should be able to transport any laptop computers on their own, you may be unsure about what to do with all of your computer monitors.
The best option for safely moving a computer monitor is to pack it in a box that fits just one monitor—don’t try to pack it with other devices. Once the monitor is in the box, you can use packing peanuts or crumpled paper to fill in any empty spaces around the monitor. Your professional movers will ensure that your monitors are loaded safely onto the moving truck, so you won’t have to worry about cracked screens or broken buttons.

Cross-country moves can be scary, exciting, and everything in between. If you are preparing to pack up your belongings and set up shop in a new state, knowing what to expect can spare you many of the concerns and surprises that can come with making a long-distance move. As you prepare for your office relocation, keep these possible complications in mind.
You Will Need Time
No matter how clean and organized your office is, packing everything up and preparing it for a journey that spans hundreds or even thousands of miles takes time and energy. Hiring a corporate moving company can help immensely, but it is still important to set aside plenty of time specifically for the move. If you can afford to close your office for a few days or move on the weekend, do so.
You May Need to Thin Out Your Inventory
When it comes to moving your company’s operations across country, less is definitely best. Trying to consolidate your office belongings may be difficult, as critical documents, nice office furniture, and essential office décor should all make the move. If you are unable to reduce your lot, look for a moving company that has trucks of all sizes and offers document storage services.
You May Get Cold Feet
Like long-distance residential moves, long-distance corporate moves are major decisions that can lead to an array of emotions, ranging from nervousness and uncertainty to fear and the desire to call off the move. If you experience these emotions while in the process of planning your commercial move, consider how stress may be contributing to these feelings and remember your reasons for deciding to relocate in the first place.
Are you planning an office relocation that starts or ends in New York City? With more than two decades of commercial moving experience, U.M.C. Moving Company, Inc. is well-equipped to help your move go smoothly. To learn about our corporate moving and document storage services, call us at (718) 473-9650.

Moving to a new business location should be exciting, not stressful. If you take some time to plan and organize before the move actually begins, you can help prevent problems and reduce the worry typically associated with moving. Listed below are a few tips to help you get organized before your office relocation.
Purge What You Don’t Need
You may be surprised by the amount of things you’ve been keeping in your office that you no longer need. Moving to a new location offers a great chance to purge your belongings so you can have a fresh start with less clutter in your new office. Go through your records, your office equipment, and your office furniture and identify what you don’t want to move. Next, arrange to have unwanted items sold, recycled, or disposed of as appropriate.
Get Your Technology in Order
Your office likely has at least a few pieces of electronic equipment. Organizing these items before you move can be extremely helpful when you are getting back to business in your new office. Identify what different cords go to, and then label and bundle them for easier packing. Using different colored stickers can be particularly useful for this task. You may also want to label pieces of equipment that are used by specific employees every day so there’s no confusion at the new location.
Use a Moving Binder
Keeping all of your moving documents in one place can be difficult if you don’t use a binder or a folder. Placing every item, from your new office’s floor plan to your moving company’s contact information, in a binder will ensure that you can always find what you need, when you need it.
Coordinate with Your Moving Company
Your corporate moving company will have plenty of experience with office moves just like yours, so they can likely provide useful tips to help you get organized. Be sure to ask about the best methods of preparing your items to make packing and unpacking go as smoothly as possible.

I just wanted to let you know how well our move went. Adam and his crew were great - pleasant but very professional - kept the job moving to the point that we finished an hour early. Also, Patty and Blanca from your office couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I would recommend UMC highly to anyone who wants a seamless move from proposal, to COI, to delivery of supplies, to the actual move. Thanks!!!
