Moving and Delivery Guidelines

These Moving and Delivery Guidelines have been developed to ensure a safe and efficient move for you and your organization. Following these Guidelines will expedite your move and protect the people handling the move as well as your property and the building itself. These Guidelines are in no way meant to hamper or restrict your moving process, but rather to safeguard the elements involved in the process. Please let us know how we can best assist you with your move. We are happy to answer any further questions you may have. Please call the Property Management Office at (202) 872-1435.

  1. Notify the Property Management Office as soon as possible of the date and time of your scheduled move. All moving arrangements must be coordinated with the Property Manager. We strongly encourage you to schedule the Loading Dock in advance for all large moves and deliveries. In order to reserve the Loading Dock you must call the Property Management Office. This may not guarantee sole use of the loading dock but will provide you priority scheduling. All moves will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis.
  2. Large moves may only occur on the weekends or between 6:30 PM – 6:00 AM, Monday through Friday.
  3. The moving contractor must provide a Certificate of Insurance to the Property Management Office prior to the move. We suggest that you secure a Certificate of Insurance for your firm as well, to protect your property. The moving contractor must be bonded and carry single limit, property damage and public liability insurance. The Property Management Office will provide specific insurance requirements upon request.
  4. Your moving contractor will be responsible for any damage to the building incurred during the move. To avoid unnecessary damage:
    • Pad or otherwise protect all entrances, doorways, and walls affected by the move.
    • Cover all floors traversed during the move with “masonite” or a similar protective material.
  5. All move activity must occur via the loading dock at the rear of the building. Any exceptions to this entry point must be authorized by building management. If other areas of access are approved, the moving contractor must protect the building from damage. Prior to approval, the moving contractor will be required to specify the material that will be used to protect the building.
  6. All large moves must be handled through the service elevator, unless the Property Manager authorizes the use of other elevators. Tenants are responsible for protecting the elevator cab interior, floor and walls. The moving contractor will be able to provide the necessary materials. The capacity of the service elevator is 4,500 pounds. The dimensions are as follows;
    • Door Height: 82 ½"
    • Door Width: 42"
    • Cab Height: 98"
    • Cab Width: 70 ½"
    • Cab Depth: 84 ½"
  7. Your moving contractor must report any electrical problems or equipment breakdowns that occur during the move that may affect building operation. They are also responsible for removing all trash and bulky packing cartons from the Building and the Loading Dock.
  8. The Fire Marshall prohibits the blocking of any fire corridor, exit door, elevator, lobby, or hallway.
  9. Your moving contractor is expected to monitor the behavior of its employees in and around the perimeter of the building. Moving crew members are not permitted to smoke in any areas of the building. Crew members should not loiter or eat in the lobby or in the front of the building, unless they are customers at one of the restaurants and seated at a table. While working in the building crew members should keep their voices at a conversational level so as not to disturb tenants who may be working.
