Moving Rules & Regulations


The purpose of the Movers' Rules and Regulations is to establish the procedures by which a mover employed by a building tenant at The Offices at Park Ten must conduct any move-in, move-out or miscellaneous interim move. These rules are designed to protect the Building's common areas from abusive and / or irresponsible behavior by moving company personnel. Adherence to the rules and regulations below will minimize the likelihood of accidents. The tenant and its mover are responsible for curing any damage, accidental or otherwise that might occur during any move activity.

  1. No move will be allowed to proceed without an approved Certificate of Insurance from the moving company on file in the Property Management’s Office.
  2. Access to the tenant's space and freight elevators must be obtained through the tenant.
  3. All moving must take place after-hours, between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., Monday through Friday or on weekends.
  4. A supervisor employed by the moving company must be on-site at all times to supervise all moving personnel.
  5. Masonite or some other protective covering (but, not paper) must be used to line the walls and floors in all corridors and/or elevator lobbies along the move path leading into the freight elevators and loading dock. This is the mover's responsibility, no such material will be provided by the Property Management Office.
  6. Under no circumstances will any doors be left propped open in any way shape or form (including the loading dock doors), except on the move floor in which case, any propped doors must be returned to the closed condition and locked at the end of the move.
  7. Smoking is prohibited in the building. Smoking is only permitted in the designated smoking area. Any moving personnel observed smoking in the building or on the grounds except in the designated area will be instructed to leave the property immediately.
  8. Radios within the move destination are permissible subject to any conflicts with the Tenant's directives and acceptable volume levels. If the radio can be heard from an adjacent tenant’s space, the mover may be instructed to lower the radio volume. If a second request is necessary the mover may be instructed to remove the radio from the building.
  9. Loud talking, profanity at any volume level and crude behavior as judged by building staff is not permitted. If such behavior persists, the mover personnel engaging in such behavior will be instructed to leave the property.

(Landlord does not consider tattoos offensive in general.)
  12. Moving personnel are not authorized to go anywhere in the building other than the move destination and the pathway to the loading dock. Moving personnel discovered anywhere else in the building will be instructed to leave the property immediately.
  13. All furniture and or materials must be moved from the tenant's space through the delivery entrance in a continuous fashion. Under no circumstance should any cargo be left unattended to block a corridor or passageway.
