Office Furniture Management & Installation: Advice from the Pros

For most offices, files and furniture take up most of the place on moving trucks. That’s why it makes sense to start your office or business relocation process with a good hard look at your office furniture and filing needs, and asking questions like: Do you need it all? For example, if you’re going from desks to cubicles you can save money by not moving all those desks. Don’t pay to move what you don’t need. How will your office furniture be protected? You’ll want to ask your moving and storage partner about all the steps they take to protect […]
