Moving to a new office is exciting and often follows a period of growth where more space is needed for new team members, but whether you are one branch of a big corporation or a small independent team, moving offices can often be a stressful experience. Your business relies on its setup to operate and relocating all of your computers, desks and furniture can seem like a daunting task.
Thankfully, professional office removal companies and relocators are here to help, whether you need the service in London or across the country. Hiring a professional company to carry out your office removal means that you can relieve yourself of the stress of the move, minimise your team’s downtime and instead turn your attention to more important things!
Finding The Best Office Removals Company
Once you’ve decided to hire a professional office removal company to help with your relocation the next challenge is finding a good one, and this is where Shiply can help.
Rather than spending hours scrolling through search pages and flicking through phonebooks trying to find a reliable office removals service you can simply fill out a quick form on the Shiply site and companies will bid for your job, sending quotes directly to your inbox.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s just a few miles down the road or across Europe, thousands of companies and transport providers are on Shiply and will try to complete your job. Furthermore, companies on Shiply are often making similar journeys already, meaning that not only are prices often up to 75% cheaper but the environment also benefits as there are less unnecessary vehicles making journeys on the road.
You should factor in things like how long the company has been on Shiply and their feedback score to decide which quote to go with, the cheapest option isn’t always the most reliable.
Preparing To Move Offices
There are still some simple steps you can take to prepare for your office relocation before everything is packed up.
- Create A Timeline - Putting all of the important dates of the move in a calendar can help with organisation and also give you something to share with your employees so they stay informed about the move.
- Plan The New Space - Visiting your new office and working out where everything will go will help immensely when it comes to setting it up. A visit will also tell you whether anything needs doing in the new office before you move in, for example painting the walls. This is also a good opportunity to sort out the gas, water and electricity.
- Have A Clearout - Moving offices is a great chance to have a proper clearout. We all have draws full of old documents or printers that don’t work sitting around our offices and moving all of your equipment is the perfect time to (responsibly) dispose of items that are no longer needed.
- Create An Inventory List - Along with clearing out old things, an office move is also a great chance to take stock of what you have. This can not only ensure that nothing gets lost during your move but also gives you the perfect chance to work out whether there’s anything you need to buy for the new office.
- Update Company Details - Make sure to update all of your company details with the new address and inform anyone who needs to know, such as banks.
Once the job has been completed, please make sure to leave feedback for the company, good or bad, as this helps other users make a more informed decision about office removal companies in the future.
Good luck, and happy moving!

Who Will Carry Out My Delivery?

When Will I Receive A Quote?
You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes. If you are worried about the lack of quotes, try adding some more detail to your listing as transport providers may be unsure of dimensions or weight and feel unable to provide an accurate quote. If your delivery is urgent, you can try our 'featured delivery' feature which moves your listing to the top of the search page for couriers.
How Many Quotes Will I Receive?
Whilst there is no guarantee of quotes, 98% of our listings receive at least 3 quotes, so you are likely to find someone who can undertake the delivery of your items.
Does Shiply Provide Packing Materials?
If your item requires packing materials or extra care then you should make sure this is highlighted in your listing and discussed with any transport provider whose quote you are considering. Couriers on Shiply are able to provide all levels of service and can help pack your items, just ensure you inform them of your needs.
Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?
Transport providers will almost always tie up an item in the transport vehicle, as the risk of damage from moving around during transit is high. You should always confirm safety precautions and packing needs with transport providers before accepting a quote.
Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?
Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.
Can I Travel With My Goods?
The majority of transport providers on Shiply are only insured for the transportation of goods, however, some are also able to take people. If you need to travel with your goods, make sure to mention this in your listing and highlight this to any courier who quotes on your listing.
What If I Need To Cancel My Booking?
If you have accepted a quote and paid the deposit but wish to cancel the delivery, then you should first inform your chosen transport provider that you no longer require the delivery. You should then contact us at to have your deposit refunded.
Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?
If you have not yet accepted a quote then you are able to change the address of your listing. Note that editing details of your listing after publishing will result in active quotes being voided, so you will have to wait for new quotes to come in. If you have already accepted a quote and need to change the address, please let your transport provider know and contact us at .
