Office clearance guide: What you need to know before clearing out your space

Typically, the need to clear out your office is the result of a positive situation – a long awaited office move, new furniture to spruce up the place, a whole makeover – you get the picture. But how are you supposed to dispose of all of that tech equipment, furniture pieces, books, shelfs and so on and so on. There must be a method to the madness, right?

Of course there is! Thanks to Rainbow Rubbish Removals, you have this nifty office clearance guide that will make preparing your office for whatever you need it cleaned for easy as a piece of cake.

Ready to learn about how to clear out your office space the Rainbow Rubbish Removals way? Let’s begin with…

1. Decide what you want to get rid of

First order of business – what do you want to get rid of? This step might sound a bit self-explanatory, but in reality taking the time to go through the items that you need gone is a very important step and one that will make sure that the rest of your plan is going smoothly. We suggest making a general list of all of the types of items that you have in your office space and then going into details. Here is a good example:

Technical equipment

  1. Computer screens – X number
  2. Keyboards – X number
  3. Printers – X number

Office furniture

  1. Desks – X number
  2. Office chairs – X number

Trust us – this will make the planning process a 100 times easier. 

2. Time the office clearance 

When do you want to get your office cleared out? Decide on a day and discuss it with your disposal company. After that, you’ll need to calculate the number of hours that it will take for the removals service provider to complete the job. You can base the math on the number of items you want to get rid of and the size of the property. If you want to go into extra detail, you can add the approximate number of loads the hired team will need to load the items into their vehicle and the time that it will take.

3. Choose a removals company

Once you’ve mapped out your battle plan, it’s time to pick a removals company to complete the office disposal job. We get that choosing a service provider may sound like a no brainer and a matter of a few good reviews, but in reality, there is a lot more that you should take into account before you make your final pick. 

For starters, when doing your research, look for recent and reliable references. The last 10 to 15 reviews of the company in Trustpilot, or in any other review platform, should be a good enough tell if they are OK or not. 

Afterwards you can check the services that they provide. Are they specialised in office clearance? Do they have the necessary vehicles and equipment to complete the job? Make sure that you are hiring a company that knows what they are doing. 

And last, but certainly not least – compare price rates. Some disposal service providers are a bit too competitive and lower their solutions’ costs to snatch more clients, which doesn’t mean that the service results will be up to standard. 

4. Make sure that the items are disposed of in a responsible way

This part of the guide is extremely important – make sure that your service provider is a licensed waste carrier – if the company doesn’t have all of the needed paperwork to operate and they don’t dispose of the items in a responsible manner, you risk getting into trouble with the law. 

Once you’ve made sure that the company is legit, you can hire them with confidence. That said, we are not quite done yet. On the day of the clearance service, you should receive a waste transfer note for each load the disposal company completes at the premise of your office space. This note should contain information like the date of the service, the address of the property, details about the removed items, such as weight and size, name of the service providers, etc. This part isn’t a legal requirement, but we recommend that you request one, if not given by the hired company.
