|Reliable and Accurate Estimates
A written estimate is curtailed in choosing a moving company for your commercial and office relocations. Our estimates are provided at no charge. Our consultant will work with you to obtain a visual survey of your environment. They then detail the costs for packing, moving and unpacking with no hidden fees. You select only the services you want to include.
The key to a well run project is the ability
of the moving company to assist in the project engineering, based on
expertise and experience. Anderson Brothers will arrange and direct
pre-move planning meetings with all your coordinating staffs. These
meetings are designed to outline the project, direct areas of concern
and reach consensus on coordination and engineering. Our presentation
will include explanations of labeling, color coding, packing,
personnel disbursement, layout and the sequencing of preparations.
Anderson Brothers crews are in constant
communication with each other and with the supervisory staffs. We
utilize both portable cellular phones and high-powered wireless
communication devices to accomplish this level of communication.
Communication is critical in larger relocation projects, and our
experience has taught us well how to meet the project objectives
through clear and immediate contact between operations.
Consolidation and Overnight Storage Advantages
We accept, consolidate and deliver new
furniture and equipment that may require storage for an interim
period. Our location and accessibility make consolidation a reliable
and effective option for your relocation planners. We also can hold
furnishing overnight for carpet installation or panel reconfiguration.
Site Protection Systems
Although we use large rubber wheel dollies
which are designed to minimize wear and tear on flooring surfaces, we
will use plywood and masonite to cover any areas which are of
particular concern. Additionally, entrances and corners are covered
where needed to reduce the risk of damage.
We hold a complete certificate of insurance.
These certificates will be delivered to any building manager who
requires proof of insurance, but most large office buildings in
Chicago have our certificates on file. Property protection, workmen's
compensation, and the specifics of coverage are all detailed in this
certificate of insurance.
|Professional Union Labor
We employ full time professional union
movers (Local 705 of I.B.O.T.). Some of our movers and supervisors
have been certified and tested to work in one of the most restricted
and sensitive areas in Illinois, which is Commonwealth Edison's
Nuclear Power Stations. They are routinely screened for drug use, and
have passed a five years Federal Bureau of Investigation background
check. Our Supervisory and Engineering staffs are the leaders in the
industry, and have broad backgrounds in related fields.
Where the project warrants, Anderson
Brothers will schedule one or more supervisor's to direct the moving
activity, on site, for the entire project duration. This method of
on-site management enhances the moving crew's ability to work
effectively. This site manager is your liaison. He will direct the
work crews, make adjustments to plans and/or schedules, and focus on
your complete satisfaction.
Modern equipment is another key to efficient
relocation projects. Not only does up-to-date equipment reduce the
risk of injury, it makes the moving process faster and more cost
effective. Our trucks, pads, dollies and other tools are the best
available. All equipment is carefully checked and calibrated to offer
maximum performance. Anderson Brothers also innovates in the area of
office equipment. We were one of the first companies to utilize book
carts as a tool to move files, completely eliminating the need for
The labeling process begins with a careful
review of your new space. The Anderson Brothers Project Engineer will
help design a color coded identification system that will expedite the
project. We can provide peel-off self adhesive labels that will be
attached to every item being moved. Typically, these labels are
distributed to your staff with an instruction sheet which outlines
label placement and individual office letter assignments.

Brothers offers a full line of commercial support services which
