One of the most difficult types of removal job is moving an office to a new location. Aside from the number of furniture and equipment that needs to be moved, sensitive office equipment adds to the complexity of the job.
When a business has been using the same facilities for a long time, the number of objects it accumulates can be many, especially filing cabinets loaded with paperwork that has been kept year after year, often simply “just in case need”.
