With the exception of hand held items, all deliveries must be made through the loading dock serving 1700 Pennsylvania Avenue, located on G Street. We do not allow deliveries through the main lobby to prevent damage to the lobby floor and doors, and to avoid inconvenience to other Clients in the building.
Routine deliveries may occur between 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM on weekdays. A routine delivery is one made by a clearly marked delivery truck that consumes 15 - 30 minutes of time on the dock. Routine deliveries are allowed on a first-come first - served basis. Examples of routine deliveries include delivery of office supplies, caterers, bottled water, or kitchen supplies. This also will include US Post Office deliveries and pickups, services from FedEx, UPS, DHL, and other major delivery services that require the use of a hand cart or hand truck.
Routine delivery personnel must use the freight elevator only.
A scheduled delivery is one that consumes more than 30 minutes, but less than two hours. Scheduled deliveries should be cleared by calling the on-site Management Office 48 hours in advance.
Moves or lengthy deliveries (requiring more than two hours) need to be scheduled after 6:00 PM on weekdays, or on Saturday or Sunday. Please call the Management Office at least seventy-two hours in advance to coordinate your after hours delivery. Your mover or delivery company will be required to produce a Certificate of Insurance naming The Mills Building Associates and The John Akridge Management Company as additional insured.
Moving of safes, loaded files or other heavy objects must be coordinated with the Management office in advance, to coordinate elevator usage, as well as the loading dock.
Please remind your movers that they must provide masonite protection for floors and carpets from the loading dock to the elevator and from the elevator to the suite. We may require that a Building Engineer and/or Porter be in attendance for large moves, at Client expense.
