Shifting the sheer volume of documents can be stressful. We have 3 tips which will make the process smoother. 


Sort through all your documents

First and foremost, go through all the documents carefully and sort them according to whether they are Important, Recycle, or Shred. Organise the important documents in separate folders which are colour coded and clearly labelled. Documents that can be recycled should be recycled and dispose of those documents which are confidential but no longer needed.


Pack the important documents

Place the folders of important documents in file boxes which should be clearly labelled so that you can keep track of what had been organised and delivered and what has not.


Transport the documents

Hand over the boxes to the transport service providers. Be there to supervise the move to ensure no documents have been left behind. Also, supervise the delivery at your new office and account for all the documents.
