Following these guidelines will ensure the successful completion of your move. Contact the DMM Warehouse if you have further questions or concerns. Communication is key!

  • Begin NOW to review storerooms and remove unnecessary items.
  • Vertical File Cabinets DO NOT have to be emptied.
  • Lateral File Cabinets must be emptied.
  • If you do NOT have file cabinet keys... put masking tape around the lock to prevent accidental locking of the unit.

  • Office desks must be emptied and contents packed.
  • Bookcases must be emptied and contents packed.
  • Box all materials and label the SIDE (not top) of each box with staff name.
  • Tag all equipment with staff name.
  • **Do NOT use box labels on furniture or equipment! They don't peel off!**
