5 Things to Consider Before Hiring Office Movers

OMX blog cover

Is your office looking to make a big move this year? If so, there’s a lot of planning that you need to do to get your team ready. One of the biggest things you need to do is to hire an office moving company. But, with plenty of moving companies out there, which one should you choose? Make the right choice, and you’ll have a smooth and easy move that brings minimal disruption to your business. But, choose the wrong company, and you could easily have a disaster on your hands. Don’t worry, we’re here to make the decision an easy one. Check out this guide to learn the top things to consider before hiring office movers. 

 

 

1. Get Recommendations from Those You Trust 

 

Before hiring office movers, you should first talk to those you trust for recommendations. 

Considering that 40 million people, or 14 percent of the population, move each year, there’s a good chance that you have someone in your life that you can trust for a recommendation. 

It’s possible that someone you know had a bad experience with a reputable company. On the other hand, it’s possible someone had an excellent experience with a relatively new company.

While Google can certainly be reliable for finding a moving company, asking for recommendations from those you trust can help you read between the lines. 

 

 

2. License and Insurance 

 

Before hiring an office moving company, you also want to look into their license and insurance. 

Never, under any circumstance, should you use a moving company that isn’t licensed and insured. 

If you are relocating your office within the state, then it’s important to note that each state has different rules and regulations when it comes to licensing, so it’s important to look into your own state’s information. 

Insurance is also extremely important for a moving company, as without insurance, you could end up footing the bill for a mover who gets hurt on the job. 

 

3. Experience 

 

Obviously, you want to make sure the moving company you hire has a few years of experience under their belt. 

However, you also want to make sure that the company you hire has experience in your specific type of move. 

Moving from one house to another is a lot different than moving from one high-rise office to the next. Therefore, you need to make sure you hire a company that has experience with office moving. 

Only an office moving company will know the ins and outs of moving fragile office equipment, finding parking in busy downtown areas, and fitting heavy office furniture in elevators and up staircases. 

 

 

4.Review the Estimate Carefully 

 

Last but not least, you want to make sure you review the estimate the moving company gives you carefully. Make sure you cross those T’s and dot the I’s, and read all of the fine print. 

If you get a super cheap rate from a moving company, it may be tempting to immediately say yes. But, you often get what you pay for, so tread lightly. 

Before you sign, make sure the company you hire is transparent about all of their charges.

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

"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."
