In a nutshell, the entire move went very badly. We called to ask questions about scheduling a move about a week in advance. We gave detailed instructions via email at the time we scheduled the move; these were not passed on to the men who arrived to do the job. When the two men arrived at 11:00a, they seems rather lost. I greeted them and showed them the things that would need to be moved. They did not speak; only nodded. When I asked if they had any questions, they said no, and that they were going to go out to their truck to get their equipment. As they were leaving, one of the men said "I am leaving at 3:00, no matter what."
This worried me and I called the owner. I told him I was concerned about the level of professionalism and the fact that the men said they had a deadline. He assured me there was no deadline, and that we had all the time we needed. He vouched for the men and said that both were very professional and highly skilled. I unfortunately believed him.
We were told they would have tools to disassemble any furniture that would need to be broken down before it was moved. They arrived with only two screwdrivers. The loading processes took much longer than we thought. It seemed to us that they were moving intentionally slow, as they were being paid hourly. The truck took 2.5 hours to load. Despite the detailed instructions provided well in advance, the movers did not know where to go or how to bring the equipment into the new space.
We had told them ahead of time that some large furniture in office space we were moving into would need to be relocated. The owner said this would not be a problem. When the two movers saw the furniture, they griped and called their boss, complaining the the job was going to take longer than they planned. Around 2:00, the men called their boss to ask for more help. He said more help was on the way.
Before any additional help arrived, one of the two movers left the job at 2:30. This was not communicated to me until 4:00. I was under the impression that both men were still working. Eventually the owner showed up with 2 additional men. They didn't not arrive with any additionally tools to help reassembly the furniture. A fair amount of the furniture we asked them not to reassemble, as it was taking so much longer than we had planned.
The move was not anticipated to take more than 4 hours. It ended up taking 7 hours. We negotiated the price, due to all of the trouble. Instead of $735 (7 hours @ $105 per hour) we ended up paying $500.
I would not recommend this service provider to anyone. They were hired so that we would not have to move the furniture ourselves. We had to assist the movers significantly; otherwise, we would have been there a lot longer, waiting for them to finish the job. As it was, they did not finish till after 6:00p. The scope of services was preformed extremely unprofessionally. There was no contract, no reply to my email. The truck they used was a rented U-Haul truck. Despite their name, they were extremely unreliable.

2 movers (
&
) moved all items and were in good spirits the entire time, even though many items were heavy.
They arrived on time, helped with extra work such as disassembly of heavy items, were very accommodating and professional.
called multiple times to confirm the job and ensured we were informed about all neccessary details.

The 2 workers were on time, if not early. They were extremely professional and pleasant. In no way did they dilly
Albany Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
. They never stopped until the entire job was completed. I had a large couch that needed to go out the back patio 1 floor up and they did it without hesitation. They also took my daughters crib apart and put it back together without any problems. They brought all of their own tools and pretty much took care of everything. I am a single mother on a budget and I was so pleased with the affordability as well as the feeling that I had nothing to worry about and was in good hands. I've already recommended this company to others, and will continue to do so in the future.

The woman on the phone was pleasant and accommodating. She said...no reason to come in, just sign the papers when the movers are done. They gave me an estimate on-line based on the list of items I gave them. The guys were on time, introduced themselves to us, asked what was going and what was staying, got the entire job done in less than two hours, and did an excellent job. I have hired these movers in the past when my son moved and I cannot give them enough praise. The end payment was less than the estimate as they took less time than was estimated. I highly recommend this moving company.

The owner called me the day that I reached out to him to set an appointment up. He also called me the night before the appointment to verify and to see if I had any changes to discuss. He also gave me the names and phone number of the men who would be coming in the morning.

showed up on time after calling me and could not have been more professional, efficient, helpful, and accomodating. I would use them again and recommend them to my friends and family. It was difficult to find a mover who would handle small as well as large jobs.

They showed up on time ready to go. We ended up getting one more person to help because it was a bogey job than originally thought. But definitely the right call. The guys worked hard 8.5 hours straight. I don't know whati would've done without them. Alk very professional, hard working. Would absolutely recommend them.

They were an hour or so late arriving because the prior move went longer than expected but, once they arrived, things went great. They worked extremely fast and were careful with my things. I would use them again.

No move is fun but

's professional handling of the packing and actual move made the whole process a lot less stressful.

, who handled the estimate and provided support throughout the move was both very professional and responsive. The packers were just great ... wish I had gotten their names. Carefully packed everything and supplied all the materials. They took most of the day on Thursday to pack things up and thoughtfully left me a bed and TV unpacked for the night.
The movers arrived around 9 AM the next morning. Cheerful and ready to get to work. They came in 2 large trucks. All four worked very happily and quickly together. Their names are

. All assured me that I should just sit, relax and leave everything to them. Everything was loaded on the trucks by noon and we headed out for the forty minute drive to my new house. Upon arrival at my new house, all I needed to do was to direct them to the appropriate rooms for each box or piece of furniture. They worked quickly and efficiently, reassembling everything they had dismantled. They were done by 5PM.
All in all, it was a great experience with a moving company and I know that is not always the case. Having spent the last 3 weeks unpacking, I can say that I have not as yet noticed anything damaged or missing. On the pricey side but I believe this is a case of you get what you pay for. Highly recommend.

Great.
The job took no time at all so they helped me move several other items around my house. All of the workmen were pleasant and courteous. They even helped reconnect my cable TV.

This moving company was great. I HIGHLY recommend them based on my experience. It was truly the smoothest, stress free moving day I could have hoped for.

gave me an incredibly accurate estimate and list of items to be moved and a competative rate. He also took the time to always answer all my questions and concerns leading up to the moving date. He even called his foreman on moving day to make sure everything was going smoothly.

was helpful in answering questions and calming my 'moving fears'.

and his crew showed up right on time with a new, clean, well organized truck. Blankets and pads were all neatly folded and straps all hung on hooks etc. I knew right away that they knew what they were doing and were very professional. I even appreciated that they brought a sense of humor to what is typically a stressful day.

and the crew are extremely experienced. My belongings were going to two locations, a unit and a home. They carefully went through the house and took all items that I had marked for one location first and then finished loading the other items. I had concerns about everything fitting in the truck but no problem, the truck was well packed and they got it all in. (only one issue with a little damage to a cabinet). The loading day went smoothly which was a huge relief since I was already stressed and tired. It was professional all the way. They worked extremely hard and finished earlier than I had expected. They even delivered the day I needed which ended up being on a weekend!

drove the truck across the state and it was unloaded at both locations without incident. They were punctual and this crew was also VERY experienced and professional. They took great care with my belongings. I was very stressed about the move after hearing and reading so many moving horror stories about other movers. This company dispelled all of them. Moving can be a positive experience with the right movers. My experience with Ideal Move was top notch and professional. I HIGHLY recommend them.
