Nov 19, 2014 — All that MBI (Memphis Business Interiors) needed to reach Rhonda Bradley’s goal of becoming the premier office mover in the company’s Memphis, Tennessee market was the knowledge and skill to do it right.
Bradley’s other company, Today’s Office, already is the only Little Rock company that is a Certified Office Mover® by the International Office Moving Institute® and has earned a stellar reputation with furniture buyers and/or companies needing an office mover.
Repeated requests from satisfied customers of her most recent acquisition, MBI—a Steelcase® furniture dealership in Memphis – encouraged Bradley, President and chief executive officer, to diversify into office moving, which is a natural addition to her core business.
Bradley again hired the International Office Moving Institute® (IOMI®) http://www.iomi.tv/about.html to teach her Memphis team the best practice methods to estimate accurately, and to ensure her moves finish on time for the price quoted with a minimum risk of damage to her clients’ furniture, computers, and the office space.
According to Ed Katz, IOMI® instructor, the MBI team is poised to make the most of Bradley’s investment. “MBI is one of the sharpest and best group of students I have ever trained,” said Katz. Since MBI already offers project management and space planning, the company earned a dual IOMI® certification as both Certified Office Movers® and Certified Project Managers®.
“Thanks Ed for doing another great job of training our team.” — Rhonda Bradley, President and Chief Executive Officer
“Ed, I loved this seminar and your training. I learned so much that we can now apply in Memphis.” — Darnell Kuykendoll, Operations Manager
“This is just what we needed Ed. Our customers have been asking us to provide them office moving services and thanks to you, we will now be able to render the best practice methods for doing their moves.” — Rob Kinney, CFO and COO
The key employees of MBI attended the training to learn the best practice methods for minimizing the risk of damage to their clients’ furniture, computers, and office buildings. Included in the training were the latest techniques for reducing their customers’ nonproductive down-time.
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.

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.
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.
