As Christmas approaches and 2014 draws to a close, there’s every chance that throughout the business year your office has become a little on the cluttered side. You might have tired and dated furniture that has seen better days, piles of paperwork that has been stacking up for months, or old and broken computer monitors that you know you really ought to get rid of.
So when you take the Christmas decorations down in early 2015, why not think about having a clear out and a spruce up ready for the New Year? A clean, tidy and uncluttered workspace does wonders for productivity, helping you to get more done in your place of work and motivate in your attitude. So where to start? Clearance and Clean Up office clearance Sheffield have a few tips for you..
Take a look around your office and think about what you could do to make it look tidier. Do you have lots of files stacked up on desks or on top of filing cabinets that really need to be filed away? You may have a few desk chairs that are looking shabby and could do with being replaced, or a box of lost property that’s been there since the Christmas party last year and could be taken to a charity shop.
It’s also important to think about the impression you make to possible office visitors; decent looking furniture and tidy desks are far more professional than clutter.
Sometimes a good coat of paint can make a lot of difference to an office. The walls and doors of a busy office are easily scuffed and marked, so a quick redecorate in the New Year is a great way to smarten things up. You could even go for a different shade; studies have shown that colour can profoundly affect how productive you are.
For example, blue colours are supposed to affect your mind; yellow your emotions; red your body; and green your balance. Blue is often classed as the most productive colour as it stimulates your mind and makes you more productive. If you work in a creative industry, consider yellow as it is supposed to stimulate your ego and spirits, and make you more optimistic.
It’s also worth thinking about the layout of your office. Think carefully about whether you are making good use of the space available. If you’re thinking of making some changes, try drawing up a floor plan which will give you a better idea of alternative furniture arrangements.

Whatever the reason for your office move, businesses need to consider the best options for the process of relocating the location of their company in order to reduce the amount of hassle and fuss. It’s absolutely essential that office moves are carried out quickly and efficiently to minimise delays on the business, which can be costly. There are some simple things that you can do to make sure your office move is as stress-free as possible. As experts in office clearance Sheffield, Clearance and Clean-Up have put together four helpful tips on moving offices.
Everyone knows that regular de-cluttering is essential for a creative and productive working environment, but it’s easy to let it fall to the wayside when life gets busy. When packing, deciding what to bin and what to keep, and generally sorting through the contents of your office, start small. Empty drawers, clear desktops and tackle bookcases first. Getting these smaller items out of the way will allow room for moving furniture and shifting larger items such as desks, shelving units and chairs.
Take care when packing and sorting out what to keep and what to dispose of. There may well be a number of sensitive documents containing private information or customer details, and you need to ensure that they are treated appropriately. For those you need to keep, make sure they are clearly labelled to prevent them being misplaced, and for those that can be destroyed, ensure that they are done so in the correct manner. Any archived files should be removed, clearly labelled and stacked neatly.
Getting rid of waste, rubbish and unwanted office items isn’t as easy as you may think. As a company, you have a duty of care to make sure that your waste is disposed of in the correct way. As experts in office clearance Sheffield, Clearance and Clean Up posses a full waste carriers licence and are compliant with the waste electrical directive to ensure that electrical waste (WEEE) is directed away from landfill.
A sensible way to ensure that your office is cleared on time is to agree a date by which it needs to be cleared and work back from there. It’s worth leaving a few days spare in case the clearance overruns; it’s easy to underestimate just how much needs to be done.
If you are planning on an office move or relocation of your business, there’s a simple way to ensure that the process is as stress free as possible. Our office clearance Sheffield services are fast and efficient, meaning that your business will be back up and running in your new office in no time.
