We have used
three times during the past 10 years. Every time they've done a great job, and we had the same crew two times. I can't believe they aren't written up more on Angie's List. We always got the price in advance, because I told them exactly what they would be moving, and they showed up very close to on time and moved everything without a hitch. There were no damages, and during the second move they had to move a 36-inch Sony WEGA Trinitron TV. It's the heaviest TV ever made, and I had them move it because the previous time I moved it with my brother-in-law, which
to a hernia operation in 2008.
This company is great, and we have recommended them to at least a dozen friends over the years. Give them a try.

The packers (2) came on Sunday and packed non-stop for five hours. Efficient and very careful. Stacked boxes out of way and left home accessible for me and moving crew. My home was a two story condo in a high-rise building in Dallas managed by a very restrictive home-owners association. The 63-unit building has 2 elevators and 1 is taken out of service for a move. Hours for mover use of elevator is restricted to 10am to 3pm. An unavoidable delay made the mover's arrival after 1 pm. They wrapped and loaded fast and efficiently but could not make the 3pm time-frame. Because of
and his crew's professionalism and how they conducted their work, the
allowed a time extension until 5pm. I had a lot of stuff including a piano that had to go from downstairs up a very steep and narrow stairwell.
and his crew drove back to
and came back the next am to complete the move which was accomplished in about 45 minutes. Movers arrived in Longview about 1 pm. They unloaded, reassembled furniture and placed being respectful of my wishes to change some placements more than once. Very polite and accomadating.
Outstanding company,

and his crew arrived on time. I used them about a year and a half before and they remembered the piano as being heavy. We had very narrow stairs and a hill to roll down, but the crew was professional and moved the piano without damage to the property. Even though my piano is very old and pretty beaten up, they still treated it respectfully and wrapped everything in moving blankets to prevent damage. They were down the stairs in about 15 minutes. Excluding drive time, the entire move took about 20 minutes. Very efficient and professional.

I cannot think of enough negative adjectives to adequately describe our moving experience with
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
and Storage. Never in my life have I been taken for so much money while receiving so very little in service. To say my experience was awful would be doing a major injustice to the word "awful." I blame myself entirely for not researching
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
and Storage adequately, despite being told by many friends that moving companies have virtually no watchdog organization overseeing their businesses and practices. I researched about ten moving companies online and interviewed three companies in my home.
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
and Storage was by far the most expensive company among the three that actually came out and inventoried our home prior to giving us an estimate. I took this as a good sign, assuming that I would have to pay a premium if I wanted to be guaranteed a quality, hassle-free move. There were so many things that went wrong with this move that I have had to sit down and make a list to be sure that I did not leave anything out. From here on through the remainder of my overall experience, I will do the best I can to leave out personal narratives and will recount factual information only. We were sold on Element because of their glossy brochures and savvy salesperson. His name was
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
. He was very knowledgeable about the moving business, and he had a way of calming our fears about moving that no other company had done. He assured us he would be with us from start to finish. He collected our $750 deposit, (10% of the cost of the move) which reserved our packing and loading dates and we never saw
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
again. We did talk to him twice after this during the move process in hopes that he could straighten out some of the mess, but all he could do was take messages and deliver them to the owner, Elle Nesher.
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
and Storage arrived at our home on February 27, 2012 to pack the entire contents of our home and prepare for shipment from Dallas, Texas to Westport, Connecticut. We had agreed on a February 28 move-date and were not aware that it had changed until they arrived on the 27th. They responded by saying that they left us a message explaining that they had to shift dates because the cleaning crew that we hired through the company would not be able to fit into our schedule otherwise. They explained that if we did not allow them to start packing when they arrived that we would
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
our $750 deposit and we would have to hire another moving company."We left you a message. Sorry. It is today or you
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
your $750 deposit." So we let them start packing and signed a contract with a start-date of February 27. The next day would have been our load date, but they never showed up. They arrived February 29. To our surprise, the contract that we signed and have in our possession had been changed by Element to reflect a load date of February 29. Our half of the contract still reflects a load date of February 28 and theirs reflects a load date of February 29. There is very little you can do if something like this happens in the middle of your move. The bottom line is that we did not have the money or the time to argue about the dates or to hire another mover. We had sold our home. We needed to be out of there immediately, so we went ahead and let them load our entire home. After packing everything up, they put our belongings in storage because we did not have to be in Connecticut until mid-April and at this point, we did not even have a new home to which our belongings could be transported. The next hiccup came when Element called us and told us that our street was too narrow for their moving van to access. We would have to pay an additional $1,700 for a shuttle to carry our belongings from the moving van to our home if the distance from the truck to our home was more than 100 feet. We said no, we would carry them ourselves if the distance was more than 100 feet, which we did not think it was. We were okay with this because we (accurately) belived that the distance from the truck to our home was less than 100 feet. It said in our contract that the movers would carry our goods up to 100 feet for no additional fee, so we were fine. The ship date was our next issue. Despite many pleas for a week's notice prior to shipment (we were driving cross-country with a four year old and a cat) I finally called Element one last time begging for a ship date. I knew that our belongings had left our storage facility, but I had no idea how long it would take the driver to arrive in Westport. We had no idea how many other shipments they were dropping off prior to ours, how many hours a day the driver would be driving, etc. I knew our ship date was approaching the one week
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
, yet Element would not return my phone calls to confirm a date. When I finally did get a live voice at Element, I asked once again for a firm ship date. Their response? "Your shipment is there! You have until Thursday (this was Monday) at the latest to meet the driver or we will put your possessions in a storage unit. This will negate the insurance policy you bought, and we won't refund it. Also, you'll have to hire your own movers to actually re-load and unload in your new home if we have to store your belongings." After two full days of accusations between us and Element, they finally agreed to push our shipment date forward by one day to Friday. It was now Tuesday evening. Our contract on our new home did not begin until April 9, so we also had to try and convince our new landlord to let us into our home three days early. She agreed, at a cost of $250 a day. We left Wednesday morning and drove straight through to make it on time. We were reminded by the owner, Elle, that our belongings would be placed in a storage unit if we were not there to meet the driver on Friday morning, April 6, at 8:00 am. If we were late, Element would no longer be financially responsible for any missing, broken or damaged items. We made it to our new home at 7:00 am on April 6. The driver arrived at 12:30 pm. He was held up in traffic in New
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
City. The driver looked at our street and quickly determined that it was, in fact, too narrow for his van. We agreed, as it was very narrow. Our contract stated that Element would move our belongings from the truck to our home up to 100 feet. Anything over 100 feet would cost us greatly. The driver did not measure the distance and admitted that it appeared to be less than 100 feet, HOWEVER, he was instructed by the owner, Elle Nesher, to place our belongings right outside of the moving truck, in the middle of an intersection. We were not prepared for this. We assumed that what was written in our contract would be honored. It was not. The driver was acting on direct orders from the owner, and though we pointed out that the distance was clearly less than 100 feet, he would not budge. My husband and I had to carry the entire contents of our home ourselves while the delivery men sat and smiled at us. They refused to stay once everything was unloaded so that we could at least check our inventory sheets to make sure everything was delivered. We had marked about five items that we could see were entirely broken or damaged beyond repair. Upon unloading, we found my husband's $700 jacket that was being used to "securely" wrap an expensive vase. Element had run out of wrapping paper and had wrapped our breakable goods with our own clothing. It was not until after they left that we discovered four boxes of items we had checked off of the inventory list actually belonged to someone else. That meant that at least four of our boxes had not arrived at all. We notified Element's owner promptly, and the next day one of the movers (we later found out that the move was actually contracted out to an entirely different company) showed up in his car with a box of our belongings. He said if we wanted what was in the box (we had no idea of the contents) then we would have to give back one of the boxes that didn't belong to us. We did what he asked and he left. We were still in the process of taking inventory of our shipment when we discovered that our entire collection of china (Philipe Deshoulieres, valued at about $4,000) was nowhere to be found, nor was a large portion of our crystal. Not only did Element fail to deliver our household goods safely, as several high-end items, including my husband's Ducati motorcycle, were broken, but they failed to deliver some items at all. We are still waiting on those boxes, but we don't expect to see them. Nor do we expect that Element will live up to its contract and replace the lost boxes. Elle was extremely accusatory when we confronted her with the lost boxes and she demanded a receipt from the china. As it was inherited from my grandmother, we do not have a receipt. Apparantly, this too negates the insurance policy, according to Elle. It is now May 18, 2012 and we have not been given a single update as to the status of our missing boxes. We provided Element the box numbers from the inventory list and sent a picture of what it looks like. We have learned a valuable (around $15,000) lesson in all of this. Read your contract, re-read your contract, and then read it again. If it sounds fishy, it is. If it is written only in the best interest of one party, don't sign it. don't assume any company will live up to their end of the contract, if doing so will cost them a penny, without being forced in a court to do so.

These are the guys that you want to move your baby grand piano. They showed up with just two men. At first I thought they would never be able to safely move the piano because I had seen three large men move it only with great difficulty. But they knew what they were doing. Those two men moved it with less difficulty and more care than the three men before had done. They only move pianos and they know how to take care of them. They are a little more expensive than other movers but not much and probably a lot less expensive than repairing a damaged piano. I would highly recommend them for moving a piano.

First day they packed and moved front of house over. Second day they moved in boxes and bedrooms. Very organized, very careful, best moving experience I have ever had. Nothing broken. Set up everything perfectly and were willing to do whatever I needed.
Recommend highly and excellent pricing. Consistent workers who know what they are doing and take pride in their work.

, a family business, did an outstanding job properly wrapping, moving, and delivering our 100 year old baby grand piano. The piano moving team was knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. The piano was picked up and delivered as scheduled without any problems.

The price was quite reasonable. We were able to save a significant amount of money by using the option the company owner offered which was to ship the piano when their truck was already scheduled to deliver other pianos in the same geographic area rather than moving only our piano from Dallas to Round Rock on a certain day.

The company has adequate insurance to cover the value of the piano.

We are very happy with the work performed. We highly recommend using this company to move pianos in Dallas or in other cities in Texas.

Went very well. They called me about 20 minutes before they showed up as a ''courtesy'' call. They were right on time. They loaded it up quickly. The porch steps in our new house are kind of tricky, but they took their time and got the piano in without damage.

Great to work with except for one thing. I called the day before and told them that my regular movers and the
Dallas Piano Movers Provider Name Locked
were both scheduled to arrive between 9 am and 10 am. I asked if they could be there as early as possible so as to not have a conflict between the two movers. I was told that they would be there at 8:45 but unfortunately they did not show up until almost 10. They did have a good excuse, but it made me miss a very important appointment. Other than that, everything went great, piano moved without a scratch.
