Moving your PC is not as quite as simple as putting a computer in a new place and pressing the on button. For one thing are many cables that need to be unplugged and replugged, two of these cables are location specific. 

Firstly, are there power sockets near your new desk? You need one for your PC and one for each Monitor. Additional items may require power, such as printers. Phones do not need power. If not, you'll need email Maintenance and ask them what your options are. This is not something that can be done overnight, so don't expect it to just happen. 

Secondly, is there a network socket near your new desk? What you need to tell us depends on your answer.

This is what a network socket looks like:

Normally there will be a label above each of the sockets. 


Yes, there is a network socket next to my new desk. 

This is the easier of the two. What we need from you:


No, there isn't a network socket next to my new desk.

If there isn't a socket next to your desk, but there is one close by, you can use this so long as you correctly manage the cable. Loose cables along the floor are trip hazards and should not be left unattended. If you cannot run it under desks or around objects you need to purchase cable mats to minimise trip hazards. 

However, normally we would recommend we put in a new socket near to your desk, as this is less hazardous and looks a lot better. The timescales for this can vary hugely, as if your office is already at capacity we need to run cables from our server room. 

What we need is:


Much of this applies if you have multiple people moving, or if you have a new staff member that requires a new desk.
