When planning, managing and executing an office or commercial move in Houston, it is important to ensure that the mover you select has the correct credentials to get the job done legally, and without delay. Company certification/licensing, worker training, insurance, etc., might all seem like items that every mover would have, but the fact is that many do not.
Here are a few items that you should ask for when selecting a professional mover:
Certificate of Insurance (COI)
The Certificate of Insurance (COI) is a very important document from the moving company’s insurance company, because it verifies that the moving company is insured. In many cases, the building management in the office location that you are leaving or moving to, will require this document in case the moving company damages the building during the moving process. The COI protects your company from future claims from building management.
Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC)
The Transportation Worker Identification Credential, also known as TWIC®, is required by the Port of Houston for workers who need access to secure areas of the nation’s maritime facilities and vessels. TSA conducts a security threat assessment (background check) to determine an organization’s eligibility, and issues the credential. oleRRelo has completed this certification to enable access to the Port of Houston for our customers moving needs.
The Houston Area Safety Council (HASC)
The Houston Area Safety Council (HASC) conducts hands-on, instructor-led and computer-based safety training classes for industrial safety training, general safety, professional development and company, and site-specific orientations. oleRRelo is a member of HASC, and our employees go through comprehensive safety training before working on our moving and relocation teams.
Sometimes the basics get overlooked when selecting a mover for your office or commercial move. Make sure the companies you are comparing have the right credentials to get the job done, and that they have the protection you need.
