Grand River Moving Features:

Grand River Moving has moving consultants who specialize in office moving, with the expertise to properly have your office relocated. We have coordinated and moved both small and large moves. You should not just choose any local mover for moving an office especially where more than one truck load is required. We ask that the space at your new location will be properly marked with directional signs and placards to expedite the placing of all furniture and equipment upon arrival.

Items Being Moved
Any items inside of bookcases, shelves, desks, wall units, or cupboards should all be packed securely in boxes. Filing cabinets do not need to be emptied. Just make sure that they are locked or securely fastened with string or heavy packaging tape.

Personal Items: Grand River Moving cannot be responsible for your personal possessions, such as legal papers, money, lighters, fountain pens, pictures, plants, etc. For your own protection, we suggest you move these items privately. If you need special containers, ask your Moving Consultant.

Desks: Pack all contents. This includes current working papers, letter trays, books and other desk items. Seal paper clips, pencils and all other loose materials in envelopes and then pack them in boxes. Protect all glass with paper or other stuffing.

Security Files: All files should be locked prior to moving. If security regulations require escorts, advise the Moving Consultant and he/she will make arrangements with the mover. Security files may then be consolidated.

Supply or Storage Cabinets: Pack all contents in boxes. Cabinet doors should be locked or tied.

“Do Not Move”: If items are not to be moved or if equipment and furniture are to be discarded, be sure to tag them with “Do Not Move” labels. This will eliminate any unnecessary expense.

We Offer Removal Services if Needed!

You may not have control over many aspects in a corporate move. You must follow a certain guideline that is provided by the company. Larger office moves often you have to make sure you give yourself at least 3 months of preparation.

Most people are completely unfamiliar with how to prepare for a medium to larger corporate move. Unfamiliarity can cause much headache and stress. That is why it is even more important that you plan ahead and ask Good Ol Boys Moving to give advice and be your mover of choice.

Here’s a simple checklist to make sure nothing gets left behind or overlooked:

  • Desk empty?
  • Supply cabinets cleared?
  • File cabinets cleared?
  • File drawers locked?
  • Wall items taken down?
  • Breakable items properly packed?
  • Computers and other machines disconnected?
  • “Do Not Move” tags placed?
  • Liquids drained from equipment?
  • Desk pads and chair pads labeled?
  • Have a set of spare keys available.
  • Make sure that your Internet connection is ready to go and that the phones and fax machines are working. The sooner you get back to work, the sooner you can continue working and making money.
  • Make sure the electricity works.
  • Make sure the bathrooms work.
  • Don’t forget to throw away (or use as scratch paper) any old stationary that has your old address on it and create new stationary with the new address on it.

Access to Floors Above Ground Level

Be sure to examine the building before hand and be aware of all elevators. Make sure they are in working order and large enough to move the furniture. If there are no elevators, be sure to inform the moving company so they can come prepared.

Moving Electrical Machines
Before moving any technological machines, make sure you know what you are doing. Many machines need to be handled certain ways. If you are renting any of your equipment, make sure you notify your rental company before the day of the move. Disconnect and dismantle computers properly.

Make sure there is an employee that knows what he/she is doing when taking apart the equipment. Remove all fluids from the photocopy machines. There may be loose parts that can easily be lost, so make sure that all parts are securely fastened or put them in a separate box close by.

Remove all items from the vending machines. Empty water from any water dispensers. Make sure to take extra notice to any machines that are dismantled. Items get lost very easily in a move.

We Make Moving Easy

Moving Coverage

Insurance for your goods is referred to as cargo (or transit) protection. All Licenced Long Distance Moving companies carry many forms of insurance coverage, one of them being cargo insurance. A Lot of Local Moving Companies do not. What movers offer you is an option to be compensated for any loss or damage to your goods

Senior Moving

Grand River Moving offers properly trained consultants to view and go over the moving needs of seniors. Our Specialists will assist in moving the senior from point A to point B, and/or packing/storage services if required. Senior Move Management may require our consultant(s) to make several trips to the seniors residence

Save Money on Moving

Since there is nothing you can do to change the mileage between your old home and new home, unless you move closer, the charge that will most impact your long-distance move will be the weight of your shipment.
Here are some tips to reduce costs on your long-distance move:

Here is what some of our clients
are saying about Grand River Moving

Grand River Movers helped me move last month. This is my second time using this company and both times I have had positive experiences. Lum and David were my movers this time and they were both friendly and helpful and good to work with and got the job done. Jesse was helpful in getting everything set up beforehand as well. Thanks for another successful move! I would use Grand River Movers again.

Grand River Moving took care of my move today. Lum and David moved me from a third floor apartment to a third floor apartment with no elevators and didn’t even make a fuss. The boys worked hard and got everything to my new place in one piece. Superb movers who offered superb customer service. Thanks again boys!!!

We used Grand River moving for our recent move the end of September 2020. We can’t say enough good things about our experience. Dan, Alex, and OB were our crew and our day couldn’t have gone any smoother. We downsized from a 4 bedroom home to a small bedroom and they were able to pack our home into their truck and transport it to our new home. …More

I had Grand River move us this past summer (2020). We ended up doing it on the hottest day of the year. The guys were awesome. They were very professional, safe, and didn’t damage a thing. Even tho it was a miserable day doing heavy work …More

Amazing company, professional movers. Very accommodating of our move needs. The movers worked hard and the prices were good. I’m sure you could find cheaper on Kijiji, but if you value your possessions I recommend using this company instead
