Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can you move me today?
A: If you need to move today, we can probably do that. If you require a written estimate, you should call about 7 days to 2 weeks before your move. We generally ask that you give as much notice as possible.
Q: Can I leave my items in their drawers?
A: As long as there are no liquid or fragile items left in the desk, you should be fine. Just know that the desk will be turned up on its end to be loaded, so any items you do not wanted shifted inside the desk should be removed.
Q: How long will Bart’s Office Furniture take to pack my goods?
A: Every office is different, but we can normally pack an office in 1-2 days.
Q: So what can or can’t I take with me?
A: Generally speaking, dispose of all flammable items, liquids, foods, and other items that should not be shipped. Anything that can deteriorate should not be shipped. If you have a question about something, just call and ask.
Q: What are my responsibilities?
A: Be prepared, first and foremost. This allows the move to process faster, lowers your cost, and you’ll feel better about your move.
- What’s more efficient? Always ask one of our specialists what you should pack and/or move. The common thought is “the more I do myself the less I’ll have to budget for my move.” Not true. We come prepared with the right equipment. That means it will take us a fraction of the time compared to you doing it yourself.
- Be present during the packing of your belongings.
- Take personal responsibility for high value items.
- Check and sign the inventory of your belongings.
- Ensure that no prohibited items are packed.

Q: How long does Bart’s Office Furniture need for an office estimate?

- Insurance requirements: Commercial companies carry a higher level of insurance coverage for your contents and building.
- Equipment: We purchase equipment that is a better fit for commercial use, and specifically designed for specialized office furniture.
