The Story of OMX

As the region’s only full-service mover exclusively serving businesses, find out the story of how Office Movers Express (OMX) was launched after 40 years of preparation.

Office Movers Express (OMX) manages the re-branded, full-service moving subsidiary of Washington Express, the region’s oldest and largest courier company. The newly-launched moving company is the only mover exclusively serving business in DC, MD and Northern Virginia and specializes in short-notice internal or external office moves of all sizes. For nearly 40 years the office mover had operated as a division of parent company Washington Express.

 

“Since 1981 attorneys and business professionals have  retained Washington Express for a host of on-demand services. Increasingly we have  been called upon for short notice internal and external office and personnel moves, as well”, said Mr. Miller.  “To satisfy the growing demand along with added requests for regional shipping and large item storage, we have greatly expanded our geographic coverage and moving services. We have opened a secured access storage facility with a state-of-the-art warehouse management system, expanded our staff, upgraded training and certified skills among our moving techs and customer service teams,  and re-branded our moving division into a full service commercial mover exclusively serving business in WashingtonVirginia and Maryland.”


To direct strategic marketing and operations, OMX added moving industry veteran James A. Durfee, as Vice President and General Manager. Mr. Durfee was a former Executive Vice President for what was the nation’s largest commercial mover.  


Office Movers Express recently moved to a  new 40,000 square foot Beltsville, MD  office with climate-controlled warehouse, offering clients both short and long-term storage.  In addition to small and large office moves,  services  now include everything from IT relocation,  packing and crate rental, distribution and 3PL, conferences and conventions  to warehousing, shredding, office decommissioning and recycling. And for every service, OMX provides real-time online tracking and transparent invoicing.


“We call it all the ‘x-factor’ in office moving, a comprehensive  portfolio of rapid response, and personal services developed strictly for business and symbolized by the bold red “X” of our OMX brand,” said Mr. Miller.


With nearly four decades experience responding to the needs and exacting requirements of business,  Office Movers Express is committed to  building long-term relationships  by creating a uniquely professional and personalized niche in an oft-times unskilled business sector.  Whatever the size, wherever the move throughout the region, OMX’s goal is to move business smarter, faster and more cost efficiently than any other mover.

Customer Reviews

Kay K. December 2021

Barbara Bush Foundation
"I wanted to thank you for sending a great group of men to move us – they were wonderful!"

George B. December 2021

Mintzer Sarowitz Zeris Ledva & Meyers
"I wanted to compliment the crew that you sent to handle our move. The project manager, supervisor and the entire crew did a great job. They were all a pleasure to work with. The team leads kept us informed during the entire process. Every single member of the crew was very respectful, courteous and polite throughout the move. The group worked extremely well with each other and us to address the few curveballs that the space threw at us as far as getting things to fit in some tight areas. Requests to move certain items after they had already been set in place were happily accommodated without any reluctance. The entire crew should be commended."

Mary H. December 2021

"I can’t say enough about how wonderful the team from OMX was to work with. Every single person involved in the move was helpful, professional, kind, and patient – even when I didn’t have answers to questions that I should have. There were many times throughout our three days together that frustration could have taken over, but the OMX team was always calm and willing to troubleshoot a solution to an unexpected challenge. This is our second move with OMX and I wouldn’t want to do another move without them. A big thank you to your wonderful crew – they’re the best!"

Michael B. November 2021

"Everything went great. My coworkers and I were very impressed with the speed, efficiency, and care that was shown by the OMX moving crew."

Midhat P. September 2021

District Capital Partners
"Our move yesterday was great! I don’t think many people can say that about a move but the guys were efficient, communicative, polite, and all around awesome. I really appreciate you making this a smooth process."

Jonathan A. September 2021

"Thank you very much for the great service your team provided. We were changing plans and re-thinking things and your team helped us find solutions. Looking forward to working with you again!"

Tom K. September 2021

"I wanted to let you know what a great job your crew did yesterday. Just really warm, helpful and efficient. The move went smoothly on both ends and they even added an extra stop for us when requested, and helped our CEO rearrange her office to accommodate a piece of furniture that initially seemed not to fit. Just a great experience all around. I will definitely recommend OMX to others. Well done and thanks!"

George H. September 2021

Mission Square Retirement
"I want to send a special thank you to the entire OMX team. I truly value all of your hard work and excellent customer service! You guys are always willing to go above and beyond. I look forward to having your team back onsite very soon."

Jennifer A. September 2021

Hogan Lovells
"I’ve managed countless moves for Hogan Lovells and this was one of the smoothest moves, if not the smoothest move I have ever been involved with. Trust was the most important factor for choosing OMX. There were a lot of moving parts to our move (things to dispose of, other things to be donated) and OMX handled all of this accurately and easily."

David M. August 2021

US Dept. of Homeland Security
"I have to say your OMX team was unbelievable. They were professional, responsive, hard-working, and above all, they were the best. All of my personnel were grateful for your team’s work. I would highly recommend your company to any agency that has to move. Thank you again."
