Although you might have some spare time to pack your belongings for the long distance movers in Washington DC, you might find this process to be disruptive. This may partly be due to your office being unorganized and in limbo while you move.

Pack Your Office Last
Packing will take the average three bedroom family home at a minimum of one week to get done, unless you can take time off work or you hire professional Washington, DC long distance movers. For the time being, pack any nonessential office items now. Examples of this may include, books you won’t need, framed photos, artwork, outdated/old/unused photos, or another decor that doesn’t actually involve your work.
If you are able to find another place to work, you might consider packing or disassembling your office furniture. Your computer, router, printer, phone, or other equipment should be left out and packed last. Be sure to label your boxes so you know exactly where your important items are.
Set Aside Any Important Office Equipment

Turn the Utilities On
The last thing you want is to arrive at your new home only to have forgotten to ask the utility companies to turn on your electricity, water, gas, and internet.
