Why Choose Emerald City?

Our Greatest Asset Moving Your Greatest Asset

Your employees are your greatest asset. As your workspace grows and evolves, it’s important to keep workspace changes seamless and employees connected. Our goal is to take the hassles out of everything from local office furniture installation and commercial relocation to asset management programs and day to day facility and storage services.

The Emerald City Moving & Storage (ECMS) philosophy focuses on a commitment to a culture of Rapid Continuous Improvement (RCI). RCI is the way we approach continuously training and empowering our employees, our greatest asset, to proactively think about streamlined process improvement for:

Safety: Our Safety Mission is built on the simple core value – to halve the bad and double the good. Reduce work-related incidents by 50% each year and double the member safety awareness every year.

Efficiency: We incorporate LEAN Methodologies into our daily operations and are committed to a culture of RCI. The continuous process improvement leads to efficient projects, improved response time, and superior quality facility and storage services.

Value: Efficiency increases value and allows us to complete projects faster than industry standards – on time and on budget.

Emerald City Moving & Storage measures success by always exceeding expectations through our employees, our technology, and flawless execution. We do moving work – because work moves.
