www.sterlingofficemoving.com Office Services Division Company History: Of the 800 North American Van agents nationwide, Sterling is the 3rd largest with total sales of over $27 million. Our size allows us to offer many advantages, unlike most other moving companies, who use the same resources to perform all their services, (household goods,high tech and trade show transportation, storage and office moving). Sterling has created distinct divisions thatspecializes in one service area. This specialization allowsus to become much more proficient in each area, resulting in better service to our customers. Our Office Services Division is a classic example of this philosophy. Created in 1994, our Office Services Division was created to meet the needs of the diverse business community of New England. This Group was created and is managed by Jerry Markow and Michael Norton, who between them, have over 30 years of experience in selling, planning and managing office and industrial relocations. The OfficeServices Division quickly grew to over 100 people and nowrepresents over $9 million in gross annual sales; more than many full-size van Line agents.Over the past few years, we have concentrated on bringing on board the most talented people in the industry, with an eye towards offering our customers a single-source project team. We have accomplished our goal of becoming oneof the few full commercial moving groups in New England.In addition to our moving services, we offer our customers installation of modular furniture, computer disconnect/reconnect, pallet racking, inventory racking, warehouse storage, library shelving & caging. This is all handled in house. We DO NOT SUBCONTRACT these tasks as most other movers must.

Office Services DivisionCapacity:Sterling is unique in that the size of our Office Services Division allows us to perform many largeprojects simultaneously.

The size of your particular relocation dictates that the mover must have this type of capacity.Sterling will not have to stop all of our other office moves, in order to service your company, as manyother movers will. As a matter of fact, given the crew sizes needed each weekend, we perform 3-5 jobsof substantial size each weekend simultaneously. This is important since it is inevitable that the vendorselected will be needed by its other customers. A specific example of this is on one recent weekend,when we relocated 20 trailer loads for Oracle, 5 trailer loads for Cisco, 20 trailer loads for HBSR, 5trailer loads for Compaq, and 10 trailer loads for Key3Media, representing a total of 60 trailer loads.Total manpower was 114 men on Saturday.
