If there is one thing that could be considered more stressful than moving house, it is moving office! After all, it is possible that you may need to hire multiple removal vans to take away all of your equipment and furniture, and there is always the possibility that the building manager may want you to deep clean the premises before you say your final goodbyes. To make the entire process as hassle-free as possible, we’ve put together a few top tips to keep in mind when disposing of unwanted office materials…
Take any unwanted IT equipment to a specialist facility
The majority of offices have computers, laptops, printers and photocopying equipment in place and there is always a possibility that some of it may not actually be worth taking to the new office. In these situations, it is important that you avoid disposing of them in a skip because the electrical components can contain hazardous materials and often need to be recycled at a specialist facility instead.
Decide which items are recyclable
If the desks in your office are past their prime, you may be tempted to throw out the old ones and invest in a new set-up for the new office. Recyclable materials are suitable for skip disposal, so any wooden desks are more than okay to be placed inside, and we recommended that you take them apart in order to maximise the amount of space inside your hire skip.
Try to avoid overloading your skip
Whether you have a team of 5 or 50, a skip can fill up quite quickly with debris when you are choosing to invest in a bunch of new furniture and equipment, which may come as a shock to many people. Whilst there isn’t necessarily a maximum weight capacity for a skip, you should avoid filling it above the edges as this can make it difficult to load onto the removal lorry in a safe manner.
Here at PWM Skip Hire, we have a wide range of different skips to choose from which means that you are able to select the most appropriate skip for all your office disposal and moving needs! After all, there is a common misconception that a skip can only be used when carrying out big projects like a kitchen or bathroom renovation, but they are a lot more versatile than people tend to realise.
