for your business.

1. First and foremost, visit the warehouse for a walk-through and meet the team


● Call ahead to make an appointment.

● Walk through the warehouse and be observant. Is it climate controlled? What type of security measures do they have in place? Is it entirely equipped to meet your business needs?

● Meet the team face-to-face. This is the best way to find out if personalities align and how you’ll work together in the future.


2. Ask questions!

During your visit to the warehouse, don’t be afraid to ask questions. How do they stay organized? What experience do they have? What services do they offer? How do they handle paperwork? If something is damaged, or an issue arises, how do they make it right? Knowing the exact details of how the warehouse is run and how they will handle your items is extremely important. A professional and dedicated company like OMX will go above and beyond to rectify any situation.


3. Are their employees certified?

Highly trained employees make all the difference. At OMX, our team members are all IOMI & AMSA certified and experienced in reading floor plans, installation documents and shipping/receiving records.


4. Does the company offer white glove delivery and installation services?

A quality company will offer services such as white glove delivery, where your items are received, inspected, inventoried, and installed by a highly trained professional. This is OMX’s specialty.


5. What does their warehouse offer?

Having multiple options like short and long-term storage, secure storage options, cross-docking and same-day delivery within certain areas, as well as a fast pick up with no exit fees, means the difference between a basic receiving company and a great one.


6. Can you access your inventory at all times?

OMX gives you the ability to view your inventory through their Warehouse Management System. This means you have full access and transparency to your items 24/7, including packing slips, receiving paperwork and inventory photos.


7. Does the company offer any additional services?

At OMX, you get the benefit of added services such as security notifications, padded-van service, concierge evaluations, and uniformed team members with multi-faceted abilities.


Choosing the right receiving company may be tricky, but when you select OMX, you cannot go wrong. A quality receiving company will always give you full transparency, offer multiple phenomenal service options, and have certified employees. A trusted quality receiving company will also give you full transparency, offer multiple phenomenal service options, have capable, trusted team members, and provide you with the peace of mind you cannot find elsewhere.

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."
