Are you planning a corporate relocation? Give careful thought to your confidential company information. Companies spend time and money to safeguard their sensitive data during daily operations which shouldn’t change during a move. Here’s how to properly dispose of confidential documents.
A shredder is a tried-and-true way to dispose of documents you don’t want to get into the wrong hands. Planning for small batches with individual office shredders or large quantities with a professional document shredding company is essential. Communicate with your employees to ensure they comply and shred the right documents before they pack them up for the move.
Before you start loading your electronics onto a truck, be sure you backup or dispose of any confidential data. Work with your IT staff to ensure everyone is on board with what they should keep and what they should remove. And create a plan for disposal, not simply deletion.
Your company certainly has massive amounts of documents and data that you don’t want to destroy. Securing a location for the hard copies or backup for the electronic information before your move day is critical. Storage in a secure warehouse or secure servers is the best way to protect your information.
To ensure the security of your confidential documents, the safety of your electronic data and equipment, and smooth corporate relocation, you need an experienced moving company. To get your company to its new location, contact the experts at Nilson Van and Storage.

One way to make moving day easier is to properly prep for the arrival of your moving company. After weeks and maybe even months of planning, when the day arrives to head to your new home, you want to be ready for a smooth process. Here’s how to get ready.
You should have all of your packing done by now. It’s vital that you don’t leave anything for the day of your move. Even a carry-with-you bag should be ready to go. Last-minute packing just slows down your movers and makes the day feel unorganized and takes longer. You can reduce your stress and increase the efficiency of your movers by having everything packed.
Don’t wait until the moving truck pulls up to ensure they have space to park. Move your cars, ask the neighbors to leave room, and even put cones out to reserve a spot. If you need a parking pass from your community or city for the van for the day, be sure to secure that ahead of time.
Kids, especially younger ones, can make moving day stressful and hectic. Hire a babysitter or send the kids to a friend or family member’s house for the day. They’ll be happier out of the commotion, and you’ll be more effective without them underfoot. The same goes for pets. Take them to a kennel, daycare, or a friend’s house for the day to make sure they don’t get stressed or injured and to prevent any escapes.
Prep for moving doesn’t end when you’ve packed the boxes. Be ready for the arrival of your moving company, and you’ll be sure to have a smooth moving day. For more tips and to schedule your residential move, contact the team at Nilson Van and Storage.

All moves have their challenges, but an international move requires even more planning and prep than one across town or even across the country. Before the panic sets in, take a look at four ways to prepare for your international move.
Moving to another country requires more paperwork than a local or domestic move. Be sure your passport is up to date, that you have any visas required for you and your family, and that you have any official documents completed that your destination country requires.
If you’re moving for work and your company is paying for your relocation, that’s a huge bonus. If not, you’ll need to create your own budget. Either way, be sure to stay within the budget’s financial limits, whether yours or your employer’s. A reliable international moving company can help you work through the numbers.
Different countries have different restrictions and regulations regarding what you can and cannot bring with you. Check the customs requirements for the country you’re moving to before you start packing.
Getting your moving company hired and scheduled is critical. What’s even more important is making sure that the company has experience with international moves.
Are you planning to move outside of the U.S.? One of the best ways to make it go smoothly from start to finish is to hire the right moving company. Contact Nilson Van and Storage for all the help you need to get from here to there without a hitch.
