OMX is the only mover exclusively serving business in DC, MD and Northern Virginia and specializes in short-notice internal and external office moves of all sizes.

Ed is an American Moving and Storage Association Certified Office and Industrial Consultant and a Certified Office Mover by the International Office Moving Institute. Ed manages many of our moving projects and works with our clients from the initial planning process through to completion. He has quickly integrated into the OMX family and we are excited to see what the future holds. 

 

What is the most challenging aspect of managing office relocations? 

“Sometimes you have to get a little creative and think outside of the box when planning the most effective way to do a move. Especially when dealing with a lot of stairs, no loading docks, very long pushes, etc. I recall one move where we were bringing approximately 4,000 boxes down 4 flights of stairs. We flattened out some commercial bins and placed them over the stairs, with a mover on every landing we slid the boxes down the 4 flights like an assembly line. A lot faster and easier on the back!”

 

What is the most rewarding aspect?

“When I work with a client from the initial site visit, to proposal, to acceptance, to pre-move planning and moving day, and when it’s all said and done and the client tells you how appreciative they are for the work we did and how happy they are with results. That’s why we do what we do!”

 

How did you get started in this industry?

“Many years ago I was a single parent raising my son and daughter. I was working full-time but decided to look for another part-time job that I could work on Saturdays to make some extra money. I came across an opportunity to work as a mover for an office moving company and signed up to work Saturdays. After the second Saturday I signed up for Friday nights as well and did that for 2 years. At that point I realized there was something about the office moving business that I thoroughly enjoyed. I resigned from my job and went to work for the moving company full-time in a sales rep capacity. That was 31 years ago. “

 

What is the most interesting thing you’ve been asked to move over the years? 

“I once moved a rather large simulator that a company used to train ship captains how to dock very large ships. It actually has a sort of ship’s bridge where the captain would stand, and a very large screen on the wall that made it seem very realistic, looking out onto the ship towards the bow of the ship. It was very cool! I also did a move for a small law firm, moving the owner’s furniture to a farm and into their barn. The hardest part of this was they had a goat that kept chasing the movers!”

 

How do you like to spend your time when you’re not working? 

“I like to meditate and spend time traveling with my wife. I’m also a big music lover and used to play drums and the bass guitar in a band. Many years ago we would travel around the northeast and play gigs.”

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

American College Health Association
"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

Law Offices of Brown & Brown
"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

Orrick
"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

Visit Alexandria
"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."
