COVID Office Moving Case Studies

As the pandemic’s winds have yet to shift in our favor, countless companies have been forced to change course. Many businesses have decided to go long-term or even permanently remote, making big moves in the process. With CDC protocols and PPE procedures in place, Office Movers Express has been able to help its client adjust smoothly and safely. 

Group of business people moving into a new office wearing facemasks during the COVID-19 pandemic - reopening of businesses

Case Study #1:

 To remain both safe and operational, 9 different public relations and marketing firms (each ranging from 25-120 employees) within one building all needed to move due to the number of employees working remotely. However, it can be challenging to coordinate packing, the discarding of unwanted items, and unpacking in the middle of these ongoing transitions with so few employees present at the offices. Also, since all of these agencies needed to move within a similar time frame, there were a lot of logistical hurdles. 

With so few people present in the office, our team performed virtual walk-throughs and avoided in-person interaction while packing up and relocating the 9 different agencies. The clients chose to have our movers provide a full service move, meaning we were responsible for packing files, storage rooms, common areas, and providing IT disconnect/reconnecting services. This allowed these firms to move without the requirement of having their team to be onsite. Each agency’s move took less than a week, which allowed plenty of time to decommission and remove all of the furniture and surplus contents from both floors.


Case Study #2:

A large tech company needed to move to a newly renovated space, however it was still undergoing renovations. They needed to coordinate with their employees, a majority of whom working from home, to come in and collect their personal items beforehand. They also needed to figure out how to create a small temporary office space while also storing their additional office equipment in the meantime. 


For safety and convenience, the tech company preferred OMX be responsible for packing office items and desktop computers for their 120 employees, and store their items temporarily for the 4 months needed before their space was finished. Our movers then staged all of their items at a nearby swing space and used a time-slot schedule for their employees to come pick up their contents to ensure social distancing measures were taken. 


Results: 

OMX’s procedures allowed each move to be done efficiently, with little to no in-person contact. With all of our available resources, we were able to cater to each of these business’s needs in a safe and timely manner.

"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!"

"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

"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."

“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.”

"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."

"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!”

"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!"
