Indianapolis Movers Reviews

"Move went perfect. Guy showed up on time and worked their tails off for me. It was hot, VERY HOT that day, and i never felt like they weren't giving 100%. They were very professional and I had a great comfort level with them. Will use their services again without hesitation!

"Call was answered promptly.
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
gave me a competitive rate for an "odd" moving job -- just moving 1 piece of furniture within a house -- and got me scheduled for the very next day. Two men arrived 15 minutes early for the job and were very professional. They worked quickly and were careful around tight corners. They needed to borrow my tools to take a piece off the treadmill to make it fit but were apologetic that they didn't have theirs with them.

"It went great;
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
and
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
were prompt, careful, and very pleasant to work with. i particularly liked that they took their time so that we never felt rushed as they loaded and unloaded. My wife had used them before and had been very pleased with them. We give them our highest recommendation.

"We were refered to them by a friend and we were very happy. It was bitter cold out that day, I think around 0 degrees. The guys were in good moods, were very friendly and helpful. They didnt mess around or complain. They just got the job done with care! I will bemoving again once we find a house to buy and plan on using them for that move.

"Did an excellent job from first contact, estimating, loading, storing overnight, delivering and unloading. Couldn't have asked for better service. Professional, prompt and polite.

"They were very punctual, professional courteous and so reasonably priced!!. Of course I committed to one of the worst snow days experienced in the Midwest this century. They really went the distance to protect my property and please me. I wanted good service and received excellent service. I have already referred them to my daughter and brother who are anticipating residential moving this spring. I think family referral is the strongest endorsement I can extend to these folks!

Most
Americans do not understand how moving companies operate and,
apparently, do not care. Because of their indifference, consumers pay
thousands of extra dollars pursuant to what is, at root, a near fraud.
We
obtained a number of quotes for a move of 700 miles. All companies
said that their transportation rates are based on weight. There are
other charges for packing, insurance, fuel surcharges, on and on.
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
’s
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
provided a quote under which transportation, including
insurance, fuel s.c., etc. for an estimated 7300 pounds, came to $49
per hundred pounds or $5.50/mile or some factor that remains
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
.
Theoretically, if the weight was actually 6300, we would expect a
reduction in the transportation price of 10 x $49. Makes sense?
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
’s reply – No reply, no explanation.
Another moving
company agreed to refund $22 per 100 pounds under their estimate. They
charge $49 per 100 pounds, meaning the consumer pays $27 - $49 per 100
pounds for freight not in the truck (the $49 is based on the estimated
weight, thus the mover will always estimate high!) So, the statement by
moving companies that transportation is based on weight is
mostly
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
.
I
think that we can agree that moving a load of furniture over the road
is no different from moving bags of peat moss, nuclear waste, or
supplies for your local big box store. It’s all trucking and the driver
drives no differently with furniture on board. Moving companies charge
more than double the over-the-road per mile rate (about $2 per mile to
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
’s $5.50 per mile). Reason? “Transporting furniture is
different.” How/why? No reply, because there is no true answer.
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked

and other moving companies use truck trailers that can hold three or
more households of furniture. Your furniture likely will not travel
alone. At least two other families will be paying for the same
truck/trailer at little or no additional transportation expense to the
mover. Accordingly, movers essentially will be charging three families,
including yours, for the same transportation cost. Near fraud such as
this is protected by “Caveat Emptor” – It is supposedly your
responsibility to be aware of all the cute money-making cons perpetrated by moving companies.
The
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
salesman said that we should insure our furniture through
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
, even though a consumer’s renter’s or homeowners insurance will
cover the load. From other bids, movers charge $400 - $600 for
insurance on our ESTIMATED valuation. Everything is estimated in favor
of the mover. If true measures of anything come in lower, tough beans.
We asked
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
to deduct their insurance fee from our quote as we
would use our normal homeowner’s policy. No reply, no explanation.
Note
that no moving company really insures YOUR furniture.
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
and
others likely have a blanket general term insurance policy that covers
every load they move for the year. That policy may cost them $100,000
or more. However, that amount is peanuts compared to how much they
charge families to insure, unnecessarily, their thousands of personal
shipments.
We asked
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
to include packing/crating in their
quote. To pack one small dish box, they quoted $38 and estimated they
would need eight such boxes. Total number of boxes they estimated at 57
and quoted varying prices per type of boxes, all itemized. We asked,
“Would the packing charges be reduced if only 40 boxes were needed?”
Seems reasonable, doesn’t it? No reply from
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
, no explanation. How
long would it take you to pack/wrap one small box of dishes?
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
’s
charge to pack boxes was $1600 (another mover’s quote for the same
stuff was $2400!). After calling around, we found several packing
companies that would pack all for under $500. We asked
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
to
remove the packing/crating charges from our quote as we would hire our
own packers.
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
’s only answer to our queries was, “We would like to
withdraw our name from consideration.”. End of our dealing with
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
.
In
sum, moving companies are in the business of befuddling consumers,
knowing that almost no one understands moving freight or the residential
moving business.
Chose
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
if you want, but recall the
realities and their rudeness in not responding to our seemingly
reasonable queries. Again, be skeptical of all major moving companies.
If you will pay for the move, arrange it yourself. We figure to save
$3000.

Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
and
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
showed up within the arrival window. They treated our belongings respectfully and delivered them carefully and safely to our new place. They asked us to make sure everything was in the right place and adjusted inches one way or the other as we needed. Super job!

"It went great! They were on time and went right to work. They noticed things that needed attention - glass on coffee table was broken and took appropriate action. They followed my directions about delivery - where certain things went, etc. They finished the job in the allotted time! I didn't have to pay more.
"

"Even though there was a bit of confusion about their availability and our move date,
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
(owner),
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
, and
Indianapolis Movers Provider Name Locked
(and their team) were friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, flexible in meeting our needs. They even loaned us dollies so that we could easily move boxes in preparing for the big move. We would highly recommend this company for any type of move, personal or professional.
