The move went exceptionally well. We used Big

's for our move from 84th St. to a larger apartment on 90th St. in 2011 and they were superb. We didn't even bother to get a quote from another company for our move to the suburbs yesterday (with our 20month old and dog in tow this time).
As with the previous move, we got a free estimate (from a very friendly and professional estimator-- and the estimate was spot on). We were given a number of options (including storage, etc.) which was especially helpful as our closing was rescheduled a couple of times. Vivanne and all the representatives I spoke with in the office were incredibly helpful, accommodating and understanding (we had to reschedule our move several times). The crew arrived a couple of minutes early (for a 7:30 am move) and worked very quickly (and seemingly without a break) getting us out of the apartment.
The cost is dependent on timing and all 5 guys were working at top speed for the entire move. The crew were friendly, professional, gentle with our stuff and amazingly quick. Moving is always stressful but the Big

's crew were incredible. Once we were packed (which was the hard part), we were literally able to stand/sit back and watch them do their thing.
We were moved in to our new house before 4pm yesterday (including a stop to clear out our storage locker), which allowed us to start unpacking and be back at work today, which I think is incredible. Hopefully we'll not have to move again for years, but if we do, they'll certainly be our only call. I recommended them to my mother-in-law for her move and they did a similarly superb job. Her move also came in under the quoted price.

I’m very happy I chose Roadway Moving as my moving company. From start to finish they did a first class job with my move. I felt my belongings were safe with them, and on top of that they provided me with free storage time. Each and every worker put forth full effort to do their job to the fullest capacity. Thank you very much for making this experience mostly pleasant.

We decided it was time to let professional movers handle the packing, the loading and the drive to Philsdelphia. We invited several companies to give us estimates and chose

not only because their bid was among the lowest, but also because of the professional approach. A week later, after a handful of helpful up calls, a crew of three men arrived promptly on the day scheduled for them to pack our things. Things progressed well, and they asked if they could also load the truck that day instead of the next day as originally planned. After clearing the logistics with our coop's staff, the way was clear to move ahead with loading the truck. And then, the crew went further ahead with the schedule by loading the furniture in our storage locker. The result is that the second day, originally scheduled for loading the truck at our apartment and our storage locker began ahead of schedule.
When the crew arrived in Philadelphia, they continued in a very professional manner to unload the truck and deliver our things.
Nothing was damaged, everything was done ahead of schedule, and the company was helpful every step of the way.

My initial dealings with
New York Movers Provider Name Locked
was great.
New York Movers Provider Name Locked
helped us schedule the move. She was pleasant and helpful.The move was disappointing.
The foreman immediately got to the paperwork. He began by talking about tipping saying that it was up to me but it is customary to tip 15-20% and that it is hot and on he went. I said that I had researched this matter ahead of time and would tip them. He wanted to know about the payment. I said I was going to use credit card. He said that no, I should run to the bank and get cash or a certified check. I tried to explain that I am from out of state and that I needed to charge and understood that I could charge it. He said it would take extra time to drive to NJ.with his charge paperwork. I said that I was sure that I could call his office and give my charge info over the phone. We went back and forth on this. It was very unpleasant. I felt beaten up by this manipulation. Finally, I said , " I will be reviewing you on Angies list." He took my charge card and got on with the move. Then, he wanted to add the tip. I said, no I had cash for that.
The crew was pleasant and they worked quickly. My son had a desk from IKEA that had suffered in a move from Boston to NYC. After the movers left, he discovered that it was proper together but when he tried to move it, it fell apart. We had one box packed with glasses wrapped in newspaper in a box marked Fragile Glass. The top

, 4 glasses were in pieces. The lower glasses were fine. Everything else was moved safely.

I can't speak more highly of the service that Red Line provided and how great they were to work with. Kieran (from Red Line) came to give us a quote on a busy weekday morning, he was an hour late due to unavoidable rush hour traffic on the bridge. Even though he was late, he was calling frequently to let me know his ETA and upon arrival was incredibly apologetic and had a great attitude. They gave a us a competitive quote which was better than any other quote we got except one (though they included more men, extra boxes and an extra pick up outside of the city).
On move day they showed up right on time and despite being impeded by our apartment building who scheduled too many moves that day and delayed us significantly, Kieran and his team kept really positive attitudes and worked really hard to get all of our furniture protected and out the building. Kieren worked like a champ and still cracked jokes, was extremely professional and did everything he could to make sure we were taken care of.
We ended up getting a flat rate deal with them and though our move ended up taking 12 hours, Kieran and his team never complained about anything, unless out of

for a good laugh. We had some very heavy and delicate furniture and everything was packed very carefully and delivered in one piece.
These guys were well worth every penny and not sure any tip would have been too much for their service and positive attitude! Moving sucks and they made it as enjoyable as it could've been. If you have Kieran and his men on the job you won't be disappointed!

bad experience and wont use them again for the following two reasons:
- I sent them a list of all items and just at drop off location they tried to charge for about $ 400 more. we didnt accept this.
- they left trash at drop off location and they ignored the neighbors' call not to do so and we had to report the incident to the local police
- came little late to the pick up location

We purchased the "deal" from Angie's list, for $299 for 3 guys, a truck and 3 hours. Although we described the apartment and furniture when we arranged this, it ended up taking many, many hours. The 3 guys who showed up (20 minutes late), were lovely, and while not exactly fast, they worked steadily and cheerfully, well into the evening. We have no complaints about the actual workers who, again, were careful, extremely pleasant and courteous. However, the owner of the company is another matter. When the guys arrived they looked at the (upright) piano, and told us that they had not brought a "piano board" that would allow them to move the piano and that we had to speak with their boss. The boss got on the phone and told us it was OUR responsibility to have told him in advance that we had a piano, despite the fact that he (the professional mover) set up the appointment with us and that he asked the questions and that he never asked about a piano. We (the consumers) have moved this very piano across the city and across the state with multiple other movers, who never said a word about it one way or the other and happily moved the piano -- how on earth would we know that for this company they needed advance warning? After much back and forth with the incredibly nasty owner, which took a very long time for which we paid (and during which not much moving occurred) the owner said that he would try to do something and would get back to us. Initially he said that maybe he would arrange for a piano board to be dropped off, but this did not happen. His "doing something" ended up being him calling us in the late afternoon with the phone numbers of 3 other moving companies that he seems to have gotten online or from the yellow pages -- that is, he did NOTHING. He did NOTHING but make this our problem. We ended up having to hire another company for an additional $300 to move this one item. It is fortunate indeed that our lease on the old apartment extended another two days, which is what it took to schedule a second set of movers to move this item.
