how to export visual force and customized platform information

Hi all, 


I'm wondering if there is a way to export visualforce customizations from Salesforce? I.e. if you were transitioning a company to a larger organization or if you wanted to archive your current salesforce developments, is that possible? Is there a way to export all custom object information as well? If so, how? If not, are there any workarounds, besides manually saving the code for each customization? 


Thanks very much!
