Labelling strategy for your business move

Get a Quote

Our self adhesive, colour coded labelling system will ensure that all items are identified so your Pickfords operational team can move these items swiftly and efficiently to their new location.

Your Project Move Manager will create a labelling strategy with you which will be colour coded by department and/or floor and follow a simple sequential numbering system. The labels will be provided to staff at the same time as the crate delivery, with colour of labels predetermined by the agreed during the planning stages.

Once the crate or container has been filled and closed, two self adhesive-labels are then placed on the outside, one at both ends, ensuring that it is clearly visible. Information to be written on the label should be as follows:

  • Location: Floor / area / department reference code based on the layout plan to where the item is going to.
  • Position: Details of the workstation to which the item is going to (a pre-agreed reference number linking to the move plan).
  • Name: The name of the individual whose items are in the crate.

Brief staff

Most business moves happen at the weekend to reduce downtime to a minimum and everyone must understand the timetable for shutting down before hand. No matter how large or small your company, it's important to have team meetings to discuss:

  • Arrangements for move day and time table as well as key dates
  • Organise a clear out day to dispose of any unwanted items
  • Identify archive material that can be packed and moved in advance
  • Packing plan and responsibilites - ensure teams have a contact who they can talk to
  • Ensure you have the correct crates and labels for each employee effects in advance
  • We can provide a range of crates for the packing of files, paperwork and stock

Pickfords Business Solutions helps you prepare a communication to brief your staff and suppliers about your move.
