The very first task to assure a stress-free office move

Moving, by its very name is chaotic. And you’re not in business to balance the challenges of a once-in-however-many-years office move with the everyday demands of your “day job”. So exactly where and how do you begin? 


With nearly four decades of office-moving successes, mistakes and discoveries we’ve created The OMX GUIDE TO OFFICE RELOCATION as a step-by-step resource and “how-to” moving handbook. Our goal is to make your office move both less disruptive and less stressful whether working with a mover or packing yourself. 

Important office moving timelines, tips and templates

The OMX GUIDE TO OFFICE RELOCATION begins with a timeline that encompasses everything from reserving the elevators months in advance of your move to post-move reminders about updating your contact info. 


It identifies: how far in advance your plan should start; who should be on your moving team; what you should budget for; any/all I/T considerations; plus any artwork or other unique/high-value items to be moved, like the $800,000.00 Laser OMX moved for Carnegie Mellon to MIT last year. Equally important, the Guide illustrates a simple tagging system to get all your furniture, files, computers, etc. to the right room on the right floor of your new offices. 


The four must-haves in an office mover

Office moving is a specialized service that requires trained professionals. The first qualifications you should look for in an office movers are: office moving experience, a set of pertinent skills, time-saving technologies, and certifications such as the International Office Moving Institute (IOMI) designation (which is not required for residential movers). The OMX GUIDE TO OFFICE RELOCATION explains why choosing office movers with these abilities benefits you, your team and your entire organization. 


In a Customer Bill of Rights section the Guide lists nine fundamental services you should expect from any professional office moving company. 


How to pack almost anything in your office 

At Office Movers Express, we get more questions about what can be moved and how to pack it than almost anything else. Our Guide tells you everything you need to know from efficient, earth-friendly e-crating instead of boxing to how you should pack and move personal items like plants, pictures and small electronics. It even shows you how to guarantee your office furniture and fixtures not only get to the right office, but also to the right spot and position in your office. 


The last, but not least important task before turning off the lights

Cleaning out (and cleaning up) your existing office  – decommissioning – is both a lease requirement and an opportunity for green disposal of , re-purposing and/or donating unwanted furniture and electronics to charity. The OMX GUIDE TO OFFICE RELOCATION explains the various choices available to you. 


Finally, the Guide answers frequent questions like “How to keep costs down”, “Can you store new furniture pieces until the new office is ready” and “Are there any items you cannot move”. 


It’s simply the one A-Z office moving resource you’ll need for a successful relocation.
