Olympia Moving & Storage Launches New Website

Just in time for moving season, Olympia Moving & Storage is so excited to re-launch their website; olympiamoving.com

The Olympia team worked on the new website for almost a year, and it is their most major website upgrade yet. As almost all our customers utilize the Olympia website to plan their move, get moving estimates, and learn more about this Boston-based moving company, Olympia wanted to overhaul and streamline the entire online experience for their clients.

The new website features:

  • A sleek, modern design that’s equally beautiful and functional on mobile devices. This was essential, as more and more of our clients are now planning their move on their phone.
  • Simplified navigation, designed to guide clients through the site to plan a move customized to their needs.
  • A complete content rewrite, clarifying and eliminating fluff to ensure that all the pages are valuable and setting the table for a transparent, guided moving experience for our clients.
  • Olympia’s industry-famous Move Planning Center has a new look and more content than ever, including a new How to Pack video series, easy access to The Olympia Move Portal (where clients can track and manage their move online), and address change tools.

This website launch is only the first phase to the changes coming to olympiamoving.com, with a new commercial website and online estimate experience coming later this year.

Special Olympics Team USA Departs for World Games With Help From Olympia Moving & Storage

Victor & Nick of Olympia Moving & Storage welcome the Special Olympics World Games athletes at the airport

Over the weekend, athletes with intellectual disabilities from all over the country flew to Washington DC for final preparations for their most anticipated event of the year: World Winter Games Austria 2017. The athletes have been training all year to complete in one of the biggest sporting events in the world, featuring 2700 athletes from 107 countries.

Upon arrival in Washington DC, Special Olympics Team USA was greeted by the professional movers of Olympia Moving & Storage, a leading Washington DC moving company. The Olympia Movers welcomed the team as they arrived and loaded their sports equipment for transportation and storage while they were in DC.

On Monday, the Olympia Moving truck filled with the athletes’ equipment joined the police escort to transport to Dulles airport for their departure to Austria in style. Cheerleaders, fans with signs, law enforcement, and the Olympia Movers were all there to cheer for Special Olympics Team USA and wish them luck at the Games.

This logistics donation was just one part of Olympia Moving & Storage’s sponsorship of Special Olympics. This is the Washington DC moving company’s fifth year donating services to the Virginia and Massachusetts teams for fund-raising events, sports competitions, office moves, and more.

“Through our work with Special Olympics, our team has seen firsthand what focus and dedication can accomplish” says Michael Gilmartin, Founder & CEO of Olympia Moving & Storage. “Our crew loves the opportunities to meet these athletes, and we were excited to play a small role in sending these athletes to compete on the world stage.”

Ellen Head, Director of Development for Special Olympics Virginia, who helped coordinate athlete send off said “Thank you to our long time Dulles Plane Pull partner Olympia Moving & Storage for helping Special Olympics USA get ready to head to Austria for the Special Olympics World Games 2017. You are just plain awesome!”

Olympia Donates to Special Olympics MA Summer Games

Olympia Moving & Storage was proud to be a sponsor for Special Olympics Massachusetts’ Summer Games. The Games took place over the weekend of June 7-9, 2013 at Harvard Stadium, and as the organization’s official logistics supplier, Olympia crews and volunteers worked hard to make the Games a success.

Special Olympics provides year-round sports training, athletic competition and other health-related programming for athletes with intellectual disabilities. Olympia Moving & Storage contributes year-round to Special Olympics; including donations of crews & trucks for events, corporate fundraising, and employee volunteerism.  You can learn more about this partnership at olympiamoving.com/specialolympics

Throughout the week leading up to the Games, Olympia picked up supplies and equipment from Special Olympics’ vendors for delivery at the venue. Olympia also kept trucks and crew on hand for Special Olympics for logistics during the Games.

Before the Summer Games’ opening ceremonies, Olympia crews greeted over 2,000 athletes as they arrived and moved them into their dorms at Boston University.

On Saturday, many Olympia employees volunteered a part of their weekend to guide the track & field athletes through their events at the Games.

On the last day of the Games, Sunday, Olympia Moving & Storage moved the athletes out of their dorms and organized their bags for easy pick up on their way home.

All these services were provided to Special Olympics Massachusetts free of charge.

Mary Beth McMahon, President of Special Olympics MA, e-mailed Olympia after the event: “I cannot thank you enough for what you guys and your team did for us this weekend. We rely so heavily on volunteers in every aspect and the work your team did this weekend helping our Coaches have a much easier time with the move in and move out and our Games Management Team help to work more efficiently and effectively with logistics is really priceless. We have received such positive comments about everything you helped us with and we will make sure we share all of the great feedback.”

Matt Ruxton, VP of Sports Management, added: “I can’t begin to explain how much it helped to have you guys on site and all your help during our advance week. I think ‘Just awesome’ sums it up.”
