To save time and make everything more efficient, follow the below checklist:
Clean the New Place
Before you move your equipment, the new office building should be thoroughly cleaned. If it was newly built, you will need to hire special contractors to clean up the dust and debris from the construction. Otherwise, hire a local cleaning crew to make the new place ready to move in.
Paint and Redecorate
You might want to give your new office space, if it was previously used, a fresh coat of painting and a new look to go with it. New paint indicates new beginnings. If the walls are too worn down you may not have a choice by to repaint. Then, hire an interior designer to make your new office stylish and business ready.
Move Old Stuff

If you have too many things, you might want to find appropriate storage facilities for them close by. Label everything and note down everything so nothing is amiss after moving into the new place.
Find Places for Everything
Take your interior decorator’s advice and see where everything needs to be put. If you have to too many things, it’s okay to keep them at storage facilities in Dubai until your space is cleared. Follow the labels and ask the movers to handle your things with care. You might want to cover the floor with plastic wrap so it doesn’t get dirty during the process.
