Is your company growing? Moving to a new office in a different part of town? In any business, time is money and any unnecessary downtime costs you money.
At ANC Movers, our team of commercial movers has been helping businesses relocate for more than 15 years. We know how important it is that your move be completed quickly, efficiently, and without any unexpected surprises.
“I was dreading the thought of moving our office. ANC Movers literally helped me relax in this stressful situation I was in. We relocated 100+ people in a weekend. I was very pleased with how smooth the move went, and how friendly the movers were. I will use them time and time again!”

Whether you need an all-inclusive commercial move where we pack, move, and unpack your office, or one where we pick up your pre-packed boxes and drop them at your new location, we’ve got you covered.
Preparing for Your Commercial Move
Choosing Commercial Movers in Vancouver WA
Moving your business can feel like a daunting project. You don’t want to inconvenience your employees or want to minimize lost working hours. That’s why you need to choose a commercial mover you can trust.
Your business is valuable. Make sure any mover you choose is properly insured (at ANC Movers, we carry a $2 million dollar policy). You’ll need to confirm they have a valid state-issued permit from the Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) by calling (800) 562-6150 or checking online.
Scheduling Your Move
For many businesses, a full-service Friday or Saturday move is ideal. That way everything can be ready to go for your employees on Monday. If you’re planning for a few days of downtime, you have more flexibility and can comfortably schedule a midweek move.
Packing & Labeling Tips
If you’re packing your office up yourself, there are two keys to keep in mind:
- Use the right tools. Tape guns with strong packaging tape make securing boxes much easier. Avoid using flimsy boxes for heavy items and make sure to pad and protect valuable or fragile items securely.
- Box labels should include both contents and destination. If a box says, “Customer Files,” that’s great, but where should we put them? Accurately labeling every box with its contents and where it should go in your new office will make the move go faster and make unpacking much easier, especially if you’re doing it yourself.
The Day of Your Move
With the right preparation, moving your business can be something you actually look forward to. You’ll see the potential of your new office come to life before your eyes, without stress and worry.
On the day of your move, you’ll meet your movers at your pickup and dropoff location and depending on the commercial moving service you’ve selected, that may be all there is to it.
Our Commercial Moving Services
Some businesses choose to do all of the packing themselves (for some startups, it can be a fun team-building experience). Others want a full-service commercial move that dots all the i’s and crosses all the t’s.
No matter what you’re looking for, no matter how unique your business, ANC Movers can create a moving service that works for you.
You Pack & Unpack
You’ll wrap and pack all your office furniture, equipment and belongings. We’ll load and transport everything to your final destination. Then we’ll unload everything and let you unpack and set up your new office.
We Pack & Unpack
Our comprehensive package. We’ll pack your entire office, load it up and transport it to your new location. Then we’ll unload and unpack everything just the way you want it. And you’ll be ready to get back to work.
If you’d rather let us pack your office but unpack everything yourself, that’s fine. We can create a combination package that works for you. Please ask about these options when you speak with an ANC Movers sales assistant.
Need to drop off some old office equipment at a donation service on the way to your new office? Stop at a furniture store to pick up new desks for your team? We can accommodate these and other special requests that you might have.
