Where to start looking? We recommend the usual places: Google search, online review sites and of course ask your friends and business colleagues. Consider your budget, larger firms with complicated moves may want to go with a specialist commercial/ office removalist, while smaller to medium size businesses could typically use a local removalist with loads of office moving experience.

Keeping office removals costs down

Here are some tasks you can take on yourself and some helpful tips to streamline your move:

Consider moving highly confidential or critical documents in your own vehicles.
3. Dismantling and Reassembly of furniture: Although any office removalist in Melbourne worth their salt should be able to dismantle and reassemble your furniture, this can be a time consuming undertaking. Think about getting a member of staff who has some basic handyman skills to make a start on the nuts, bolts, clips and screws! Remember to keep track of all your odds and ends, we suggest sealing screws, bolts etc, in a zip lock bag and taping them to the furniture item they belong to. If you come up against the challenge of a particularly complicated piece of furniture consider, taking photos during each step of the dismantling process.
