Saint Paul Minnesota moving companies are seeing Baby Boomers downsizing in droves. If you want to join the trend, it may be intimidating to fit all your possessions into a smaller home. A lifetime of accumulated stuff stares back at you and dares you to declutter.
When you’re relocating your business, getting everything (and everyone!) organized and packed can seem like a daunting task. Thankfully, we here at RJ Moving, commercial movers in Maple Grove, have helped plenty of businesses move throughout the state, and we have a few tips to help you get started on the decluttering and downsizing process.
- The first thing you want to do is take a deep breath and relax. Remember, if you’ve planned ahead and your commercial movers are hired and things are set with them, that’s half the battle right there! We recommend sorting through your paperwork first. Figure out what you need to keep and what can be tossed and shredded and/or recycled. Most of the time, old paperwork takes up more space than necessary. The more you get rid of, the less there is for your commercial movers to move to your new location.
- Don’t think you’re going to get everything done in one day. You will want to set aside several days to get everything organized and decluttered. Make sure your employees know that they are responsible for decluttering their own offices too. Set aside several mornings or afternoons for this task. Ask for volunteers to help you declutter and downsize the items that are used office-wide (for example, kitchen items). Again, the fewer items your commercial movers have to move, the better. They will spend less time moving your items, helping to get you from here to there in a timely fashion.
- If you need to buy any storage bins, wait until all of your office decluttering is done. That way, you will know exactly what you need to buy and won’t waste any extra money or time on bins you don’t need. And moving those items will be much easier for your commercial movers.
