How We Work

Hoffberger Moving Services wants to make your move as cost effective and hassle-free as possible with minimal disruptions to your business. Your move will be tracked on our advanced computer systems from start to finish to help facilitate open communication between our team and your staff.  Our services include:

  • Pre-Move Planning: A successful move requires careful pre-move planning to minimize disruptions to your business. Our move team will work with you to create a comprehensive plan for your relocation.
  • Move Management: Some clients prefer that we manage and coordinate all aspects of the move including pre-move planning, RFP’s, furniture/equipment plans, move meetings, labeling, actual relocation and post-move fine tuning.
  • Moving Instructions: We will provide detailed verbal and written move instructions, including packing and labeling instructions, before every move.
  • Packing: Our team is capable of packing your entire business, laboratory or office. Or, as some clients prefer, you can pack your desks and we will do the rest.
  • Crating: For artwork, glass or granite, we can build custom designed crates to protect your fragile items.
  • New Furniture/Equipment Storage and Installation: When you order new furniture or equipment, we can store it in our warehouse facilities and install it when you are ready.
  • Property Protection (Old/New Spaces): We prepare your facilities with pads, Masonite or other protective materials to cover sensitive flooring surfaces (marble, granite, slate, tile, hardwood.) Your carpeting can be protected with a plastic that bonds to the carpet to prevent damage. The walls, doors and elevators can be covered with reusable corrugated cardboard and pads.
  • Systems Furniture Assembly/Reconfiguration: Should you require systems furniture assembly, disassembly, or reconfiguration in another space, we have the know-how to help.
  • Electronics Recycling: The electronics recycling industry is rapidly changing, and we can make recommendations to help you reuse or recycle your unwanted equipment. Consider donating computers, laptops, copiers and other equipment in good, working condition to non-profits and reuse programs. Otherwise, we can help you find responsible electronic recyclers in your area.
  • Furniture Recycling/Disposal of Excess Inventory: We can help you with the many options for the disposal, donation or recycling of unwanted desks, files, etc.
  • Heavy Equipment Relocation: We have extensive experience moving heavy equipment. We have moved a 40,000-square-foot machine shop and countless pieces of large hospital equipment including anechoic chambers and mass spectrometers.
  • Sensitive Electrical Equipment: We know the complexities of protecting and moving sensitive electrical equipment. We know when to use special anti-static wrapping and packaging; we know which specialized pieces of moving equipment to use for relocation; and we know when to consult with the equipment supplier for pre-move and post-move servicing.
  • Computer/Technical: We have moved thousands of personal computers. After we are certain that you have backed up your data we will:

    1. Disconnect and protect your monitors with padded anti-static covers.
    2. Place all of the computer components and accessories in special, protective computer bags.
    3. Label and pack everything in our protective equipment carts.
    4. Reconnect the computers in your new space.
  • Post-Move Fine Tuning/Clean Out: After move in, we can assist with unpacking; shifting furniture and files; disposal of unwanted items; removal of empty crates, book carts, boxes and equipment; clean out of old space; and any other tasks necessary to complete a hassle-free move.
