How to Pick the Right Mover for Your Office Move
Relocating a business can be a difficult procedure, but when you choose a good office mover, it makes the process less stressful for everyone. An office move in DC doesn’t have to take days and disrupt your entire organization for weeks. To make it easier to select the right office mover, here are some things to ask before hiring a company to manage your business move:
What type of corporate insurance policies do you have?
Getting information about a moving company’s insurance is a standard request. You should know that the company has workers’ compensation insurance to protect you against claims of injury by their employees. The company’s corporate insurance should also protect you against property damage during the move. We have damage coverage and addition insurance to protect your business.

How will you minimize disruption to our company?
Commercial moves need to have a plan before anything is packed and taken off premises. Benjamin Franklin said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” This action plan should give you information about the cost of the move, how long it will take and what type of equipment and manpower are committed to your project.

Who will be handling my commercial move?
Ideally, for a local move, the same crew should be the ones who handle the job from start to finish. You should ask about the experience of the crew and whether they are full-time, fully-trained staff who can protect your property. Our staff is trained to prevent damage to your property and injuries to themselves. This keeps your staff from being injured from lifting or straining to move large items.
Do you have local references?
Ask the mover company to provide the names of at least two businesses for whom they’ve completed a move in the last few months. This helps you weed out commercial movers who simply advertise as such, but generally only handle household moves. We have more than 35 years of experience and are happy to provide you with information from our satisfied customers. Check our our testimonial page for customer feedback.
What types of materials can your moving company handle?
It’s important to get information about how your IT and AV equipment will be managed during the move. If you have sensitive documents, you want to ensure that the security of that information is protected. Get information about how each aspect of the move is handled.
