Kansas City, MO/Feb 10, 2005 – Ed Katz, left, of the International Office Moving Institute (IOMI®) brings out the big guns to help building managers protect their properties. Katz warned that trouble in the moving industry may result in building damage as movers scramble to make up revenue shortfalls in interstate household business by going after local office moves. According to Katz, building managers armed with the right ammunition can mount a proper defense against potential building damage. The founder and former owner of Peachtree Movers in Atlanta offered solutions such as hiring or recommending that their tenants hire a certified moving company specifically trained in extensive building protection to guard against potential repair hassles. Katz began advocating building protection after facing opposition from property managers while running his moving company. Katz addressed more than 100 members of the Kansas City chapter of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) at their monthly luncheon. As keynote speaker at the BOMA chapter’s monthly luncheon meeting, Katz offered the property managers solutions, like elevator protection and door padding, from the hassles of building surface repairs.
