Dependable Commercial Office Movers’ Tips For Disassembling & Moving Office Cubicles in Asheville, NC & Surrounding Area
One big pain about moving your office is taking apart those office cubicles. Your desks, chairs, computers, and printers have all been moved but the cubicles are next. Your commercial office movers will provide a full-service move option where they can disassemble your cubicle and assemble it at the new office location, but just in case, here is how we recommend you and your employees disassemble your cubicles safely.
Before you begin disassembling cubicles, make sure you have the necessary tools. This process will take a while so make sure everyone works in pairs and have enough allotted time to not rush the process. Here are Gasperson Moving & Storage’s commercial office movers’ steps on how to safely disassemble your office cubicles in Asheville, NC, and surrounding areas.
Tools Needed for the Job
- Rubber mallet
- Flat-head screwdriver
Steps to Disassemble a Cubicle
- Remove all items from the cubicle including unplugging and removing all cords.
- Remove attached desks and shelving. One employee will support the desk while another crawls underneath to unscrew the desk from the panel.
- Remove outer panels with their screws, latches, and springs. One employee will hold onto the panel to prevent it from falling.
- Remove connector rail (if there is one present).
- If the connector rail is bolted down, loosen it with a wrench and remove it.
- If the connector rail is not bolted down, loosen panels with a flat-head screwdriver.
- If any panel is stuck, lightly use a rubber mallet to dislodge.
With these steps, you and your employees will be able to disassemble your own cubicles in preparation for the move-out day. During this process, preparation is key. An office could have dozens of cubicles to take down so it will take some planning to organize when they will be taken down and where they will be stored until the move. But, if you would like to save you and your employees the hassle, consider hiring commercial office movers for the project.
