, and Kollin were AMAZING! They hustled, moved everything in a timely manner and made the process as smooth as possible. Quality got a B because after the dust settled from the move, we noticed minor bumps and scratches on our furniture. This is obviously expected, but was sad to see a huge scratch on the front of my baby's crib :( Besides that, the overall experience was as harmless as could be thanks to

I used Allied/Atlas (Poway) for a move from San
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
to Seattle (August 2014). They were recommended by several realtor/friends. This is only the second time I have done a long-distance move.
Every step of the process was handled professionally, and I was very pleased with all aspects of the move. I got estimates from two other companies, and all prices were within 10%.
While I packed 90% of the 750+ items myself, the move was complicated in that my hillside home in San
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
, as well as my rural suburban home in the Seattle area, required the use of “shuttles”, since the 18-
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
could not accommodate the unusual street conditions.
“Bill” the driver, and his assistant, “
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
”, as well as four additional local laborers, showed up right on schedule for loading. All had a very high degree of professionalism, and a sense of humor, which instilled confidence throughout the loading process.
My SD home has a steep/long driveway, and despite the heat, the crew never complained as they busted their butts for almost 10 hours. (They seemed genuinely surprised and pleased by the $50 tips at the end of the day; believe me they earned every cent). I was also pleased that the crew carefully tidied-up before leaving. There was no damage (dings & scratches) to my home, which was closing escrow the next day.
The driver communicated with me daily by cell phone, to indicate his progress and status, and he arrived right on schedule in Seattle the fifth day. Unloading in Seattle, again requiring a shuttle, also went smoothly. I had the easy part, as I simply sat in a chair and noted the condition of every item as unloaded, and reconciled them with the shipping inventory (bill-of-lading).
Now, for the highlights of my experience:
There were no
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
charges. Allied “guaranteed” and honored the quoted price, despite the fact that there were about 20% more items than estimated, and final weight was also about 20% greater than estimated.

There were no missing items, despite the fact that my shipment shared a trailer (partial load) that went from Los
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
to
Bellevue, WA, before arrival at my home (all of this had been explained to me before loading day).
There do not appear to be any damaged items. Again, I did 90% of the packing, and now 4-days later, with most boxes unpacked, I haven’t found any damaged items. The very expensive and delicate items (big screen TV’s, computer systems, antique furniture), which Allied boxed/crated, were undamaged.
Long distance moving is one of life’s most stressful events. The people at Allied/Atlas (Poway) made the process far less stressful. Based on my experience, I would HIGHLY recommend them for a long-distance, interstate move.
Based on the sticker on the trailer, I can see why Allied named this Poway franchise: “Agent of the Year - 2013.”
Well Done!

For the move out,
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
and
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
were both professional and efficient. They moved all of my items out of my apartment and informed me of every step of the process since they had to transport my items into their own on-site storage until my new apartment was ready.
For the move in,
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
and
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
worked diligently to transport my items from their on-site storage to my new apartment and then worked efficiently to get everything into my new apartment and even asked for specifics on where I would like certain items placed.
I have used them in the past for other moves and will continue to do so.

Let me start off my saying that I have used movers to move me to new apartments every few years for the past 10 years. I have used 6 different moving companies. In the past, I have always hired 2 movers and it would take them about 3 hours, give or take 15min (including drive time). I have had approximately the same items to move each time to a new apartment about 15 min away. In all it has never cost more than $300.
About a month ago, I saw this deal on Angie's List for 3 movers for 3 hours from
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
and Storage for $279. Seemed like a great deal to get an extra mover for the price I usually pay for 2 and bought it. If you call ANY moving company and say you need to move a 1 bedroom apartment, they will tell you it is a small job and with 2 movers it will take around 3 hours and 3 movers it will take around 2 hours. I called to schedule my appointment for 8am August 1st. They told me that they would let me know the day before if that time would work as it would be later if they could book a bigger job.
The day before Aug 1, I received a message that my movers would arrive between 8 and 10am - annoying to have a window since I had work to do that day but I could make it work, after all, I was planning on them being done after 2 hours.
At 8:30am on August 1st, I received a call from one of the movers to let me know that one of the movers had called in sick and they were waiting on another to arrive and would then be on their way. All 3 arrived at 9:45am. They did not give me any paperwork to sign at this point but did remind me that it would be $125 an hour if the move went over the 3 hours. They then all expressed how happy they were that this was going to be an easy move with not a lot of stuff.
I had all of my belongings packed in boxes and neatly lined up and ready to go. My doorway was directly in front of a small stair case of 6 stairs but they were just stacking the boxes up on a dolly and rolling it down the stairs rather than carrying the boxes so that shouldn't have slowed them down. About 45min in, one of the movers disappeared. A mover who was sitting on my living room floor taking a break explained he had gone to throw up and wasn't feeling well. They all continuously took breaks. I should have said something but didn't want to be cruel as I wasn't doing any of the lifting. I never imagined I would be charged for their time to recuperate or vomit. Finally the truck was loaded at noon. They said they wanted to stop at the store and but some drinks and they weren't feeling well. They asked me where the nearest store was. I said there was one 2 blocks down as well as a 7/11 in my building we would be driving to. I took off in my car. They showed up an hour later. It took me 12 minutes to drive there. They parked in the loading zone right in front of the entrance to my building. From there it is a straight shot to the elevators about 25 ft away. My apartment is right when you get off the elevators on the 8th floor. The elevators were not being used by other tenants since it was the middle of a workday.
They unloaded at an extremely slow pace and became obvious that they were not feeling well and trying to move slower by asking where to place EVERY SINGLE TRIVIAL ITEM - JUST PUT THE RED VASE DOWN! They told me there was no way they could fit my couch in thru my hallway. I explained that the previous tenant had the same size couch as me and got it in. They offered to do me a "favor" and "take my [extremely expensive
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
leather] couch off of my hands" -
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
thanks! Why would I give away my furniture to the movers I don't know?! All 3 of them stood around for awhile looking at it. I finally asked if they had finished unloading, they said they hadn't. 2 of them continued to unload, 1 spent 20 minutes talking to my maintenance man about my couch and asking if he knew where I could rent a crane - ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
They FINALLY finished unloading everything at 2:45pm. My couch was left in my hallway. At 3:15 one of the movers showed up with paperwork (and tried to charge me for the 30 min he had supposedly been doing paperwork). He had me sign a few papers and then had me sign one that he said he had "forgot" to show me up front that stated my move would not exceed his quote of $1200!!! $1200 to move a 1 bedroom apartment which has cost me $300 with 5 different companies in the past?! If I had seen that upfront I would have told them to get out and would have called another company -it would have been clear that they were going to take their time and rip me off. He then gave me a bill which I disputed with him. I told him that this move should have taken 2 hours, 3 at the absolute most and shouldn't have to pay for their breaks and vomiting. We argued about it and I finally paid an additional $424.89 (in addition to the $279 I had already paid thru Angie's List) to get him out of my apartment.
At this point, it was 3:45pm. The point of hiring professional movers was to have my entire apartment moved in the morning so I could go back to work in the afternoon. This move wasted my entire day. My dad came over that evening and he and I (keep in mind that I am a 5'3", 110lb woman) moved my couch into the living room without damaging the walls or the couch....or hiring a crane. This was the couch the movers left in my hallway and tried to get me to give them.
The 3 movers were all extremely polite and personable, however that doesn't justify taking over 6 hours to move a 1 bedroom apartment with 3 movers, when it has always taken 3 hours with 2 movers 5 times in the past.
I have filed a dispute with my credit card company and they are reaching out to the company for me. I don't feel that I should pay for anything over 3 hours. I will also let Angie's List know and see what they can do about it. I will update my review with regards to how the company handles this.

The actual move went very well. They took great care with my furniture and my boxes. NOTHING was broken or scratched or mishandled. The new apartment had wood floors - they protected the floors before bringing in any boxes. The three movers were polite and professional at all times. They did a super job and never once complained.
The old apartment was on the second floor and they had stairs to contend with. The new apartment had an elevator and the unit was a fair distance from the elevator. They never complained. They never stopped working. It was an even pace from start to finish. While they tried their best to do the move within the three hour deal I purchased it was not possible. When we got to the new apartment one elevator was broken and someone within the building was moving out. The circumstances slowed the process but the movers kept going.
I did have to pay for two hours of service over the three hour deal. Each hour cost me an additional $150. Some insurance was included. When I originally called to set up the date I requested a morning move and was told they would try but could not promise. When I called a few weeks later to confirm they said they saw the request for a morning move and would try but could not promise. The movers called me at 7:15AM to say they would be to my place by 8AM! It was in that call they asked if I needed wardrobes, special packing, packing services.
I would use this company again for moving services.

I was thinking of doing the move myself. At the very last minute I called
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
and Storage. I was so lucky they were available. They were on time, they gave me call when they were heading to my apartment.
8Byron &
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
were amazingly fast and efficient when it came to moving my items and getting them loaded into my storage unit!! They moved me fast and were like professional Tetris players when it came to allocating the space in storage! I under estimated how much stuff had to fit into the storage unit, it was tight but they got it all in for me.
Never again will I think about moving myself, I'll just call

It went fast... my team of three were awesome. I had a card with their names on it, however, I must have lost it in the unpacking stage. Sorry Guys!! I do remember
San Diego Movers Provider Name Locked
, as it is different and he was the most talkative. My team leader was prompt and explained everything to me. The guys moved me in less then three hours from a two story with a LONG walk to the truck to a new two story. I will defiantly refer my friends to

Move went smoothly with no problems. I paid $99 for the Big Deal. Two men for two hours and the job took about 1 hour 45 minutes, so I was within the time frame. However, I wasn't aware that an additional charge was applied due to 'doubling' the time while driving. This was not realized or mentioned until the job was done. It would have been nice to know this as part of the 'Big Deal'.
