I had the unenviable task to downsize my mother's 2000 sq ft home, once she moved into assisted living. My mother, who lived through the Great Depression, was like many others of that generation -- "Never throw anything away, as you never know when you'll need it". This resulted in my mother's home as a "clean hoarder" home = lots of clothing & stuff with dust ... but nothing decaying that required a HazMat suit to approach or handle.
I contacted and interviewed a number of companies who specialized in downsizing / organizing ... of which a few also did estate sales. As I had to do this job solo (minus active participation from my siblings), I needed to choose between companies who would Downsize & Donate everything ... verses Downsize & Sell as much as possible. I chose to hire
based on their approach (downsize & sell), their sizeable following (people who are on their email list for sales), and their contacts for other services as needed.
The huge challenge was that my mother had So Much Stuff, that it was impossible to resolve all within a single Estate Sale event. Even then, we were challenged to have enough space for items that could sell (verses other items that were immediately donated).
The overall process went reasonably smooth... where I was involved in determining if an item was of Family Historical Value (not always obvious). I requested and received regular updates of their schedule, so I'd know what days they would at the house or not (some days they'd work for another client or take a day off).
I had 20 or so boxes of personal correspondence, newspapers, and photographs to sort through ... where I needed to negotiate to identify space in the home that would not be used for The Sale (so I could continue my job to sort through those boxes). Once identified, I was able to continue my work and
could continue their work for The Sale without either of us hindering the other.
One area of concern... for old, valuable items -- that given the option to sell only via an Estate Sale would not likely sell.
folks did online searches to determine the value or sale-ability of the items, and didn't necessarily check with resources knowledgeable in those areas [exceptions: fine jewelry, high end costume jewelry, dinnerware, and furniture]. Note:
(owner) is knowledgeable on crystal, glassware, silverware and silver plate ware. .... Yet, in order to clear things out and get the items SOLD -- I understand the need to price the items to sell at the Estate Sale. I did choose to remove an antique collection of plates from the sale, in order to save them from chips and cracks inflicted by unknowledgable customers at the sale.
So... after 3 months, 3 residential sized dumpsters, 700+ garbage bags of stuff donated, several cases of bottle water -- the house is finally empty and is nearly ready for sale.
Overall, I am VERY PLEASED with my decision to hire and work with
of Central Ohio (
). It was a good team effort working with them and resolving issues as they arose.

were prompt, cheerful, courteous and thoroughly professional throughout. They handled antiques, weird configurations in the industrial loft and the long hallways easily and without mishaps. We had a last minute schedule change but the office had no problem accommodating us. This is the third time we have used Moving Ahaed Services and we will most definitely call on them any time we need moving help in the future.

We hired movers to make our move because well its easier that way! The price was right and it seemed like a good idea at the time. By the time we rented a truck and talked the friends and family into helping us hiring someone to do the job was just much easier so that's what we did.
We were very confident by the phone conversation that we had when we did our quote that this was a good choice to make. It
seemed like something we could afford, it allowed us to not do the heavy work, and they were able to work within our timelines. We agreed to the move date and everything was a go. Move date came and everything went off without a hitch.
We had everything packed and disassembled and ready to go all we needed was for the movers to come in and move the items into the truck then unload the items at the new place. Seemed like it shoudl be easy and well needless to say it was easy. They had it loaded onto the truck within the time frame that was allotted on the quote and we were off to the new house in no time it seemed.
We got to the new house and the unload went just as smoothly. They unloaded with plenty of time to spare. Which made us all happy. They were also very professional in the sense that they did not trash our furnishings. The took great care to make sure that things did not get broken or scarred. For this we were grateful! We certainly couldn't afford to replace most of the stuff that we have. We would recommend these movers to anyone that will listen. Do yourself a favor the next time you move...hire someone to do it!!

was efficient, polite, and professional. I was also drawn to them because, unlike other moving companies I inquired with, they had a flat rate and didn't hint that there "might be additional fees upon delivery." I would absolutely recommend this company.

Who would have thought that moving day would turn into the least stressful part of my move? The movers were extremely professional, quick, and just generally good people. They had me moved in a little over 3 hours, which was crazy fast and more than 2 hours quicker than my estimate. They did not doddle, lollygag, or even take a smoke break. Admittedly, I was really organized, but these guys went above and beyond, disconnecting my washer and helping me tighten the legs on a wobbly dining room set. I really couldn't be more pleased.

One mover arrived about an hour before the truck in Columbus to start inventory. By the time the truck arrived, he was almost done, and the guys were able to start moving right away. They walked the house with me, and I knew the reasons for the change in price-I had not listed everything that needed moved. It wasn't much more. There is always more in your house than you think (or remember) and they were extremely thorough in the inventory. They efficient, courteous, and very careful. They left the house in great condition.
When they arrived in Pittsburgh, they had to park on the street to unload. The driver and packer in Columbus was the driver to Pittsburgh, so we knew him already. He called when he was 20 minutes or so from the house. We walked the house with him, so he understood where everything was headed. Some beds and a futon had to go thru a 3rd story window (couldn't make the turn up the 3rd story steps). Those two men unloaded the truck (26') and placed everything where it was labeled and required. They set up rooms so they were usable right away. With only one lunch break, they finished unloading and set-up in about 8 hours. They were careful and courteous. I don't want to move again, but would use them again if needed. Great crew!

and his team did a wonderful job. From the initial setup through the move. They were all professional, courteous and hard working.
The three men that did our move were friendly, moved our belongings carefully and even helped move a piece of furniture that was already in our new place.
They also gave the most complete estimate of moving costs,

I don't plan on looking at any other companies if/when we move again.

I can't say enough good things about these guys. Scheduling was easy, and I appreciated the fact that they charge by the piece instead of by the hour. The estimate

provided was extremely accurate and there were no surprises. On the day of the move

were careful with my things, efficient, and thoughtful. The packing job they did was excellent. And when my treadmill proved very difficult to get into my new house, they didn't give up and stayed late (on a Friday!) to find a solution. My previous moving experience with another company was a complete nightmare--I will never use anyone but Efficient again.

is the most crooked and dreadful business I have ever dealt with in my life. We relied on them to move everything we own from Atlanta to Ohio and then store our belongings till we found a house. Nine months later when they delivered everything, 1/4 of all of our stuff was ruined due to mold and water damage. Their trailer had a large hole in the ceiling that they had patched with duct tape and let it sit for the entire time it was in storage. The "contract" we signed did not give us another option for coverage except for "standard" which only covers $.10 per lb of what was ruined. Therefore the glider my parents had custom made for me when my first born baby was born that cost $800 -
Columbus Movers Provider Name Locked
would give me $20 for it.
Also no where on the contract did it say anything about our items being ruined by knowingly dysfunctional equipment. I understand that they will not reimburse for items damaged due to travel. But I was trusting them that my stuff would be safely and dryly transported and stored and paid them a ton of $$ to do so - but instead they haphazardly covered up a hole in their trailer with duct tape. Having no respect for my belonging, the money I was paying them for this service, or themselves as a company.
Please never ever hire them for any of your moves. It will only result in thousands of additional dollars spent in addition to needing to replace all of your ruined belongings.

The proces started out slow. I called and waited a few days for a return call. When I got a call back the process was pretty easy. I informed him what I wanted moved and how much stuff there was and he provided me with a quote. I agreed that the quoted price was a good deal and we discussed the types of things that would make the quoted price change. I was aware that this was just a quoted price but that barring anything huge the actual price should be fairly close.
On move day the moving men were a little late coming but there was an accident of some sort that blocked their way. I was understanding of this. They got right to work. They were nice young men, very efficient and professional. They seemed to be ok with their job and they did it well. One of the young men said its a good workout! I was impressed with their expertise as to loading the truck and taking stuff apart. The lead person did the disassembly and reassembly of my stuff and seemed to really know his stuff.
They were quick and efficient with no damage to my belongings at all. It took a little longer then was expected and the price was off the quote just a bit but nothing to get excited about.
I tipped the crew for doing such a good job and was completely happy with the service that I received from this company. I

use them again and I will recommend them to other.
