The International Office Moving Institute (IOMI®) is not an alliance, a trade association, or a moving company, but an independent, unbiased office moving resource and training organization beholden to no one. We accept no advertising. The links from within our pages to other web sites are reciprocal.

For more than a decade, many in the moving industry and companies planning a move have come to rely on officemoves.com as a steadfast source of best practices. We advocate, and through the International Office Moving Institute (IOMI®), teach:

Minimizing the risk of damage to walls, floors, doors and elevators during your move. IOMI® Certified Office Movers® and Certified Project Managers® learn the best practice methods for installing extensive building protection.

Minimizing the risk of damage to furniture and computers during your move. IOMI® Certified Office Movers® and Certified Project Managers® learn the best-practice methods for wrapping every monitor, printer, CPU, server, and copier with two layers of anti-static bubble wrap (with the bubbles facing the bubbles) instead of pad-wrapping computers with filthy furniture pads.

Timing is of the essence on your office move. If your mover doesn’t finish the job on time, it can cost your company thousands of dollars of nonproductive downtime. IOMI® Certified Office
Movers® and Certified Project Managers® learn an estimating formula that’s based upon man-hours instead of the unreliable method typically used on household moves that's based on weight.

The IOMI® proprietary estimating formula is uncannily accurate because it factors in not only volume but the unique logistics of both the building you're moving from and to.

IOMI® certifies next generation DC office mover
NOV 28 - 30, 2011 CARTERSVILLE, GA - At 26, Sunny Singh has already amassed quite an impressive resume.  He’s worked in business development for Staples corporate, became one of the youngest bank branch managers in the US at the age of 21, purchased Ace Moving & Storage three years ago, and has just completed Certified Office Mover® training by the International Office Moving Institute (IOMI®).

Ace Moving & Storage is based in northern Virginia and serves the metro Washington, DC market.

Singh accomplished the three-day training at Georgia Highlands State College here, where he learned the IOMI® proprietary formula for accurate estimating.

Singh feels confident he can now determine the number of trucks and movers necessary to
complete any size job on time for the price quoted.

“This is just what I needed to be as successful in office moving as we have been in residential moving. Your seminar gave me everything that I need to out-market and out-perform the competition,” said Singh.

IOMI® Trainer Ed Katz sees great things ahead for this next generation office mover.

“Based upon his drive, passion, intelligence and past business experience, this fellow will become a leader in the office moving arena.”

IOMI® proudly partners with Georgia Highlands State College, which awards Continuing Education Credits for Certified Office Mover® and Certified Project Manager® training when held at the Cartersville campus.

Chief Craig Millsap, coordinator and instructor of emergency management for Bartow County, GA, invited Singh for a VIP tour of Bartow County's command headquarters facility. Chief Millsap helped develop and teaches Homeland Security for Office Moves, online training for moving companies exclusively from the International Office Moving Institute (IOMI®).
Beef brisket at Slope’s Barbeque is sure to help speed Singh on his way as a successful office movers. It's said that Slope's authentic Southern barbeque puts the power in Cartersville "power brokers". It must be true because they all eat at Slope's. According to Singh, he never tasted barbeque as good as the lunch at Slope’s.

Why hire an IOMI®
Certified Office Mover®?

1. On time for the price quoted

One of the biggest complaints about movers is that they often badly underestimate the cost of a move and then don't finish on time. An International Office Moving Institute (IOMI®)-trained mover learns a formula for accurately estimating cost. By calculating the number of trucks and movers for how long, IOMI® Certified Office Movers® can base estimates on man-hours, volume, and logistics, and not weight, which household movers typically use when quoting an office move. As a result, the chances of a move completing on time for the price quoted is greatly improved.

2. Minimize risk of damage

IOMI® Certified Office Movers® learn the latest techniques to minimize risk of damage to furniture and computers, and are trained in extensive building protection to minimize risk of damage to carpet, walls, doors, and door jambs.

3. Minimize downtime

There is a better way! IOMI® Certified Office Movers® understand that their customers can't afford to shut down operations during a move, and are trained in techniques to keep client employees working. Many IOMI® graduates offer the "boxless" move -- moving the contents in the furniture instead of the contents and the furniture.
