In fact, if you move home you can do it yourself but in case of office relocation it is obligatory to hire the company. Even if you going to entrust this task to one of experienced Bickley removal companies, you should still have essential knowledge about moving it.

Data backup is essential! Back up all your important files and data in case anything went wrong. You can do yourself by using a blank CD, DVD, external hard drive or USB flash drive, or entrust this task to a specialist. Most of larger moving firms employee IT engineer but if you decided to hire smaller firm like Dartford man and van, you may need to find IT engineer on your own.

Shut down your computer after the backing up necessary files and disconnect everything from your computer: mouse, keyboard, speakers and monitor - if possible all these things should be kept separate. Discs that can still hide in one of the CD / DVD drives should also be removed and placed in a secure container. Detach all cables and cords connected to the computer and peripherals (keyboard, mouse, etc.).

Packing and protecting
