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

Theresa P. March 2021

OU Advocacy Center
"I wanted to share my utmost gratitude for DK and his team members who adhered to my every request. He consistently checked in with me to make sure the office furniture was in the proper place and if not, he and his team immediately repositioned the item. Their professionalism and attentiveness is to be commended. They made sure everything was in place and cleaned from both the move out location to the new location. Thank you so much!"

"Your guys were great! We had no problems or concerns and will absolutely be giving you another call for future needs."

"The move was great because of the great team you sent over. They were very pleasant, professional, as well as very patient. They wound up having to stay longer than anticipated and move things around, and they never blinked. Thanks again. Looking forward to working with OMX again."

Stephanie C. February 2021

Agriculture & Food Systems Institute
"Our moving experience with Office Movers Express couldn’t have been better. From the beginning when I contacted you, to when you sent the quote and confirmed the move, it has been positive. The staff at OMX even reached-out to me when bad weather was expected and suggested moving the crate drop-off day. It made a difference! The actual move started at exactly the pre-arranged time and the movers couldn’t have been more pleasant, helpful, efficient and courteous. They all knew what they were doing, and I never once had to interfere. I would definitely suggest OMX."

Judy M. January 2021

“The movers were excellent, they even cleaned every desk before they left which we’re especially grateful for during the pandemic. They are setting the bar pretty high for all other vendors.”

John B. December 2020

Zenetex
"Fort Meade is a very difficult environment if you are not familiar with it. Your team got through a very serious security process much faster than crews of a smaller size were getting through because of how well the instructions the guard gave them were being followed. Nothing about our move was easy but your team rose to the occasion to make it look like it was. They approached the job with complete professionalism and tireless dedication from the time they arrived to the very end. We simply can't say thank you enough."

Cindy C. December 2020

"The crew they sent over same-day were terrific – very professional and organized. The job got handled a lot faster than I thought and I got to head home sooner than expected!”

Leika U. October 2020

Rider Levett Bucknall
"The team that came out was extremely professional and FAST! We really appreciated all the communication they had with us - from taking apart furniture and making sure we were happy with the way things were done, to the placement of the furniture at the new location. At the end of the move they walked through the entire space to make sure all their materials were picked up and we were satisfied with everything. The services each and every one of the team members provided was beyond what we had expected. We appreciate everything and will definitely recommend OMX!"

"The crew you sent were very professional, accommodating and quick. Thank you for being so flexible with our many changes to this process. You guys made what is normally a stressful event so easy and pleasant."
