Let’s start with this: the best and only way you should move office furniture is by hiring professional movers. 
Yes, we realize that this “advice” may seem self-serving, since we’re a professional office moving and furniture installation firm. And yes, we’d be delighted to serve your needs.

internal office move“This office move will be a breeze! After all it’s not like we’re moving to another building…”
