Moving Office? Don’t Forget These Essential Items

In our last blog post, we mentioned that Billi was moving office. Our move is in the next couple of months, so up until then, we will be planning, preparing and packing. We’re going to be sharing our moving journey with you so that if you’re moving office, you can get the most from our tips and tricks! We hope some of our advice helps if you’re in the same position as us. If there’s anything you think we’ve missed, feel free to add it in the comments below!

Moving office means you’ll need to replenish a whole load of essential office supply items. From the smaller items such as paperclips, all the way up to desks and chairs. If you’re relocating, there’s a lot to consider. The last thing you want is to move into a new place and realise there’s no printer ink. Forgetting to consider small things like that can seriously affect the whole process of starting work in a new place. Therefore, we’ve devised this essential item list for new offices.
