About the Author

Ed Katz

Almost thirty years ago when Ed Katz founded Peachtree Movers in Atlanta, GA, he moved furniture like every other mover. And heard the same complaints.

Moving means packing and unpacking and everyone hates it. Besides the drudgery and inevitable lost and mixed-up files, productivity comes to a complete standstill effectively putting the business out of business. To add insult to injury, the mover damages walls, floors, and furniture getting to the truck. Haphazardly stacked on the moving van, many items such as glass, framed art work, and computers undergo a beating in transit and emerge at the new location marred or broken, sometimes worse. After the move, the customer feels as battered as his belongings.

Ed Katz took customer complaints seriously and began developing methods and tools to eliminate or minimize the grievances.

To minimize office disruption and downtime, he developed the Spider Crane® and Space Gobblers™ and began moving the contents in the furniture rather than the contents and the furniture. Wha-la, the "boxless" move was born. By virtually eliminating the costly downtime of packing, workers now had access to records and files practically up to the minute they're rolled out the door. Customers stayed in business and loved it.

To protect computers and other sensitive electronic equipment, Katz' Comp-U-Wraps® offer all the advantages of bubblewrapping at a fraction of the time and cost, and to minimize damage to building surfaces, his Mat-A-Door® doorway protector guards office doors, glass entry doors, and lobby-side elevator entrances and adjacent walls.

Ed Katz has changed the way businesses move. His innovations have been featured in the Wall Street Journal and have brought him international recognition as the guru of office moves. He realized early on that office moving is a service; give businesses superior service and they'll be back. Minimize the disruption, damage, and downtime normally associated with moving -- let them stay in business -- and moving becomes a painless experience.

Only Ed Katz could successfully put together Office Moving for Movers, the book every moving company operator has always wanted. For more, visit the Office Moving Resource Center at
