Moving the iconic Ford Theatre was a delicate and sensitive project but Movers USA managed to pull it off In a brilliantly professional manner

Ford's Theatre

We were all extremely proud and excited but we knew it was not an ordinary project. Almost everything you see and touch is antique and highly valuable. We had to be extra careful in every aspect

Ford Theatre, one of the most recognizable historic places in the US, was built in 1863. The theatre garnered immense popularity for its famous stage performances and became the site of President Lincoln’s assassination in 1865. In 2000, the second renovation project was started by the authorities. Being one of the most experienced leaders in the relocation and moving industry, Mover’s USA, was chosen for the job.

The decision of choosing Movers USA was made after another moving company was not able to live up to the requirements of the project. The authorities canceled the contract with the company and opted for the best in the industry. When Movers USA picked up the project, there was still a lot of work to be done. “We were all extremely proud and excited but we knew it was not an ordinary project. Almost everything you see and touch is antique and highly valuable. We had to be extra careful in every aspect” said Movers USA founder and President Gil Ben Shoushan, who is also the former chairman of the Maryland Movers Conference at the MMTA (MD Motor Truck Association).

The most difficult and delicate part of the project was removal and packaging of 800 antique and original seats from the theatre. The company sent in a team of twelve most experienced professional movers along with a fleet of six transport trucks. It took them less than 24 hours to complete the job in the most sophisticated manner.

Ford Theatre was a gigantic project and Movers USA team was only a small part of the project. It took around nine years to re-open the theatre for public again in 2009. For two years, antique chairs from the theatre remained stored in the company’s climate controlled warehouses. During this time period, the condition of the chairs was inspected twice a year by the expert from Movers USA. Ford theatre officials also carried out regular inspection of the items along with the premises.
The whole project was a success and the theatre is once again in its most glorious form. Learn more about the Ford Theatre renovation project and services offered by Movers USA by visiting the website
