Consistency is a great thing. Becoming skilled at one thing increases efficiency, but sometimes doing things the way they’ve always been done isn’t always the best way. In the world of corporate relocation, when a unique project arises it’s imperative that a company is flexible and creative enough to adapt.
Recently, Moving Masters was faced with a unique commercial moving problem. Upon arrival at the client location in Crystal City, VA, our team was tasked with moving a 2,600 pound oversized crate, which is comparable in size and weight to a 2013 Honda Civic. The lift gates on our trucks are capable of supporting 4,400 pounds, but this crate created some logistics issues because of its size. Rather than simply abandoning the project, our team of experienced professionals used creative problem solving and teamwork to tackle the task at hand.
After some collaboration, the Moving Masters team decided to put two trucks back-to-back, and used the now two times larger lift gate to hoist the crate. The weight and size was distributed evenly between the two lift gates, and the operators were able to simultaneously lift the crate without any problem.
Moving Masters CEO Alex Klemko is extremely confident in his team members. “If there’s a way to get something done, I know they will figure it out. Most of our movers have been working together for over ten years, so they trust each other to get the job done.”
Moving Masters is a full-service commercial moving and storage company located in the Washington, DC metro area.
