But what happens when it comes to moving your office plants? Can you hand them over to a moving company? Do they need any additional care? Are there any special rules when it comes to moving plants? A lot of people will choose to leave plants behind, but trust us – you can move them without any hassle and they will continue to make your office space healthier and nicer!

How to start moving your office plants?

So, if you have decided that you want to move your office plants – there is a question. How to do it properly without damaging the plant itself? Should you od it by yourself or hand them over to a moving company. If you are moving to Brooklyn, locally, no more than 150 miles – most of the moving companies will accept the plants without any problems. Also, the important factor is that they require that the plants are not in transit for more than 24 hours. That way – there will be no watering nor possibility for a plant to die.

Can you move plants by yourself?

Depending on the type of plants, you can even move them by yourself. All you will need is a little bit of time, wrapping materials and a car. We know that this might seem scary since there are a lot of things that can go wrong when it comes to moving. But do not worry. With our tips, you will be able to handle moving your office plants without any problems!

Moving small plants

When it comes to moving small plants – you need to make sure that their pot is protected. Especially if the flower pot is ceramic. You should wrap only the pot, leaving the plant free. When it comes to transporting them, the best thing you can do is to place them on your front seat. Depending on the season make sure that they are warm. Also, you can always put your plants in boxes, but make sure that the boxes are filled so the plant won’t be moving around. This decision you need to make depending on how delicate are your plants.

Moving larger plants

When it comes to moving larger plants – you will take similar steps as with the small plants. One thing that you can do additionally is to cover the soil, so it doesn’t spill during the relocation. If the plants are higher, they will probably be little tilted. So, once you reach your new office make sure to replant them. You need to make sure that the pots with plants can not be crushed with something, and that your plants have enough space.

Once you are done moving – give them a little time

As you can see moving office plants doesn’t have to be hard. But keep in mind that they will probably be a little bit sick after the relocation. Especially if you are moving long-distance. It will take time for your plants to adjust to new climate and new space. Make sure to water them regularly and keep an eye if they need fertilizer. 

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
