"The provider advertises on its website that "our drivers and crew are well trained in handling your furniture" and (sales rep)" promises that they only use their own men. It was two high school students who carried my things into my new place. These young men dropped my China cabinet breaking off the two front corners and breaking the glass and wooden support structures in one of the doors. Estimates to repair the damage are $1000.00; the company has offered $120.00. The provider advertises on its website that they are "a proud member of the American Moving and Storage Association and fully subscribe to the high standards required of all members." One of the benefits is that a dissatisfied consumer can request arbitration through this organization. The problem is - the provider is not a member, despite its claim. The provider assured me that the cost of long distance moves are "guaranteed" ( ), yet I was charged $159.00 more. When I called about this, he said he would speak to the driver and get back to me. I never heard from again. The provider has not responded to three letters from the Better Business Bureau (they have an F rating with the BBB) or my attorney. They did not appear in Small Claims Court, so I have a judgment against them

"The initial estimate was done very thoroughly - after going back and forth I elected to do all the packing myself and we moved some boxes ourselves to save a little" money (with these changes the estimate was ~1600). The moving crew showed up on time, quickly surveyed the house and started loading the truck. They did a great job of working around the fact we were still packing the last few boxes (they even gave us a few boxes they had on the truck to help). Everything was loaded in about 3-3.5 hours, they then drove to new house and unloaded. Things were put in the final rooms and locations (well, as best as can be expected since I wasn't 100% sure on where we wanted everything). The crew was very professional and seemed to be having a good time (even though it was 90+ degrees that day). They worked HARD. We have not found any damage on any of the furniture or anything from the boxes - which is amazing (our previous two long-distance moves were not so lucky with furniture scratched, stuff crushed, etc). I would definitely use them again.

Movers & Moving Companies

Moving every possession you own from one house to another is a major undertaking filled with potential pitfalls. Here's what you need to know to organize your move whether you are hiring a moving company or doing it yourself.

Before you get a quote from a moving company for your upcoming move, one highly rated provider shares five expenses you may not have considered.

Don't think of it as necessary because movers are paid low wages.  Tipping is always optional.  Some service industry's normally see tips, such as food service and moving.  Others such as plumbing and painting do not.  Why?  I don't know.

Generally, our movers are tipped and the prospect of a tip I believe keeps them moving with "a sense of urgency".

If you feel that the movers are already getting paid, and they are... you don't have to tip.  Some people that receive a service like to recognize service that is above normal with a tip.

Either way we hope your move went well.

If you desire to attempt to save Dollars, offer the buyer a Discount , a % OFF the settling price  to accomodate New carpet installation . Typically the carpet is replaced  and floors REfinished , to present the house you are selling at the best possible appearance , not showing the wear of your stay there.

  Think about IT , which house would you rather BUY ?

 

A home with  New Flooring , or one where you see every  scratche and stain left by the former Owners ?

 

Discount the sell price  ,DO NOT Refinish the Floors at all and Sell  AS IS ,  or  refinish and install NEW CHEAP CARPET !

I used many years ago to move a sofa I bought second hand, and friends who recently moved had used the company and were very pleased with the job they did. When I called, the company contact answered the phone promptly and was able to schedule a move within a few days. The movers had another job earlier in the day, so they only ...More had 4 hours available for the Saturday I wanted to move. I only wanted to move about half of my household in order to leave some items for staging sale of my house, so this seemed perfect. It turned out to be plenty of time, and the movers completed the job in less time than had been allotted. Two teams came: & and & . was the one who coordinated the move and packing of the truck.
These movers were professional, efficient, very hard working and a pleasure to work with. They were careful with my furniture, using furniture pads and giving additional attention to fragile items. They were very skilled at getting large items through narrow spaces, like up the basement stairs, and packaged the moving truck very efficiently. I was amazed at how quickly they were able to move everything.

did a wonderful job with our move. They came out and did a free estimate and explained how their moving process works. They then scheduled the move and completed it in a professional and courteous manner. Our crew R., , and did an ...More amazing job. They arrived on time and took care to protect of our furniture and other valuables. They were super friendly the entire time. It was a 90 degree day and they finished the task on time. The estimate was very close to the true cost which I appreciated. I would definitely use them again.

& crew did an incredible job packing our house and moving us 1000 miles away from WI. The crew was polite, friendly, and most of all careful! They completed the packing job efficiently and actually arrived at our new home FASTER than they quoted! we've done 2 other cross-country moves, and 's ...More service was far superior to both of the other companies we worked with. They also offer the added bonus of just moving YOUR stuff so it comes direct to you without stops to load / unload other move jobs AND they are so easy to work with. Plus their price was very competitive. Highly recommend.

Things did not go well. They did show up on time (early in fact). I had already moved all my boxes to the new house garage so all that was left was the furniture. It took a full 8 hours to move my furniture to the house down the street. They had given me the rate of $112.00 per hour. A few days before the move he sent me a proposed invoice. There were ...More many additions to the price he had given me including truck cost $120.00 and insurance fee $90.00. With 8 hours of labor the total was far above what was estimated even though I had given a detailed list of what needed to be moved. Once the movers had left, I found several things broken. The keys in my desk drawers had been broken (I found the pieces thrown into a box) off so the drawers are no longer usable. My dining room table had been taken apart and not put back together-there are a few bolts in loosely and many are missing. I found a bookcase leg piece broken off. My outdoor storage bins were broken apart. I was not told of any of these accidents. The owner of this company is related to a good friend of mine so I feel bad for having to write this report but I would NOT use this company.

The team was competent, on-time, and extremely professional. The mover (not ) who originally moved my household effects into the large storage bin did a very uneven job--a number of the moving boxes were cracked--which made them much more difficult to move--and the storage room was packed in a strange way. The BB team dealt ...More with these issues patiently and professionally; they treated my furniture with care, nothing was broken and no damage was done to the floors or walls of the house. I have had 4 moves in the last 8 years and the team on this move was by far the best.

They showed up an hour and a half late, and upon arrival informed my husband and I that they would only be able to stay for about 30 minutes because they were going into overtime. We told them that was unacceptable, just because their previous move had run long and caused them to be late didn't mean we still didn't need the time we'd ...More originally agreed upon (which was 2 hours). We even called the main office to complain but they basically said there was nothing they could do, if they were going into overtime they had to leave. We were from out of town and had no family or friends there to help us, and I have back problems and could only do very little lifting. So in the time we had, the along with my husband moved all the large items into the apartment (it was second story), and then unpacked the rest of the boxes out of the truck and into the garage and left. We contested the charge and ended up only paying about $100. I would definitely never use them again!

The good: The movers were mostly on time, worked with enthusiasm and worked quickly, and were very personable.
The bad: The movers arrived slightly late without any notification they were running late. They did not bring two items I had called to request the moving company supply for my move to cover my boxspring and mattress, so they were left ...More exposed in the truck. The movers, while interesting people, did not look or speak professionally.
All of the above would not have bothered me too much, except that I found multiple dents on most of the wood furniture I had moved, which is precisely the reason I use a mover in the first place. It wasn't enough that I called to complain, but I won't use this provider again in the future. If you aren't too picky about the state of your furniture, then I recommend them. However, at this price I expected my furniture to be taken care of.

was there on time and promptly went about getting things moved and packed. He had staff that was professional and hard working. Everyone was friendly, demonstrated excellent customer service, and kept a constant with moving things quickly and efficient. They set up everything in my new house. Oh, before I forget, I probably ...More have the heaviest furniture in the whole world. and team moved and not one piece was scratched or damaged. Best part, and team returned the next day to remove my garbage and junk. GREAT JOB!!
