San Jose Real Estate Reviews

"I priced out a few moving companies from those listed on Angie's list. I
ended up going with
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
because they gave me the best
deal and had the best ratings of the reviews I read. While my experience
with them wasn't as great as what I'd had with my previous movers, I was
nonetheless pleased with the resolutions reached with the company in the
end.
I'll break down my review into sections: Positive experiences and
negative experiences. Even though there were things that were negative
about the experience, let me say that things also could have been a lot
worse!
Positive experience:
- I needed to move on short
notice -- I first contacted the company 3 weeks prior to my move date
(on Feb 16, 2013 for a a March 9th move). Some other companies were
unable to accommodate short notice. So thumbs up to
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked

for accommodating me!
- I only needed to move ~2500lbs, which is very little -- only personal items and 1 dresser/night table/end table set. Many companies wouldn't move that small an amount of stuff across country.
- The owner, Ran, was accessible by phone, and gave me an approximate quote over the phone, and a more detailed one once I sent him my list of things to move. The quote process went well.
- He emailed me a receipt for the deposit check that I mailed him. He also provided receipts every time I made a payment.
- On Moving Day, Ran showed up promptly at the agreed upon time and date.
- Communication with Ran himself during the packing and loading was
very easy. Communication with the crew was more difficult (they spoke
very limited English).
- I asked him to reuse boxes and packing material (packing paper) from a previous move. He totally accommodated me on this, and then gave me a discount for providing the packing materials!
- he communicated that he would transport my stuff to his warehouse in MD, and that it would be picked up by another carrier who would bring it to California (see related negative comment about time tables below). He also explained that I would pay the balance of the moving costs to the second carrier.
- Although Ran was not immediately responsive to emails that I sent inquiring where my stuff was, he often respond next day to these emails with the schedule as he knew it.
- on the day of delivery, Ran called to let me know that the driver was coming. He also called the next day to find out how the driver did. I really appreciated his follow up.
- after I had unpacked and found broken/damaged items, he asked me for pictures of the damaged items. I sent them to him 3 weeks later (so I could finish unpacking and checking the rest of my items). He then sent me forms for claiming the items. It probably took me another month to fill out the claims form and send it back (I had moved for new job that was pretty demanding). He sent me a proposed settlement, and forms to indicate the amount. I disagreed with the settlement and we were able to arrive at a agreeable settlement very quickly.
Negative experience:
- After Ran sent the email about the deposit check, I didn't really
hear from him again until the morning he showed up to move me. Because
it's a small company and he goes out to supervise and help with moves
personally, I understand that he may have been pressed for time, but I
would have preferred to have an email to confirm he was still coming on
the agreed upon date.
- Communication with Ran's crew was very difficult, since they didn't speak very good English.
- I specifically asked one of the crew members to pack my shoes in the
provided shoe boxes, and Ran reinforced/re-explained my request. Well,
when I received them on the other end, none of the shoes were in shoe
boxes, and the shoe boxes had been put, EMPTY, into another box for
transport. This was NOT what I had asked for! And if you weren't going
to use my shoe boxes, you should at least wrap each pair of shoes
separately (this is what my previous set of movers did, since they
didn't trust the shoes boxes that I provided). However, Ran's crew
members just tossed all of my shoes, unprotected in any way, into one
big box, even though I asked them to be careful. This might not matter
to everyone, but it happened to matter to me, and I was unhappy
receiving them this way.
- Another crew member didn't wrap all of my
breakables individually. Two pairs of ceramic ramekins were wrapped
together, and consequently all 4 of them broke. Some ceramic soup
spoons were sitting in a plastic silverware organizer, but instead of
taking them out and wrapping them separately, the entire open top
silverware organizer was wrapped with all of the silverware still inside
it, and in the expected jostling of the moving trucks the jostled
silverware broke the ceramic spoons. Cups arrived with stress fractures
probably due to the jostling they received, though they were
individually wrapped. One mirror arrived with a small chip and another
mirror arrived with significant damage (it can no longer be used).
-
Some items weren't protected well (a musical keyboard stand was not
wrapped at all and arrived significantly scratched; a step ladder
lost one of its rubber feet because it wasn't wrapped, etc). Previous
movers put plastic cling wrap over EVERYTHING, including these items.
- miscommunication about the time table. I was lead to believe that my
stuff had a high probability of arriving in about a week. In
actuality, it took about 3 weeks to arrive, which was still within
contractual limits, which was 21 business days. Although I knew
that it would have to be transferred to another carrier to bring my
stuff across the country, I thought that Ran had scheduled for that pick
up to happen the next business day after he picked up my items.
However, in reality, it took 6 business days (9 actual days) just for my
items to get picked up from his MD warehouse. Then another 7 business
days for delivery of those items (another 9 actual days) in California.
While there wasn't any other company who could get my stuff to
California faster for the same price, had I known that Ran would have to
wait 6 business days for my stuff to be picked up from his warehouse, I
would have tried to have him pick up my stuff earlier since I'd have
preferred to receive it in California closer to when I arrived there.
But since I wasn't aware of the actual time table, I couldn't make an
informed decision about it.
- communication with the 2nd
cross-country mover: the cross-country mover wasn't provided a copy of
my contract so he didn't know that my contract with
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked

specified that there was to be no charge for them bringing things up an
elevator. However, once I showed him the contract, he dropped that
charge from the balance he tried to charge me.
In the end, Ran worked with me to try to provide a good moving experience. He was able to work with me on the moving and packing estimate, and he cut me a break for having my own moving materials, and he worked with me to come to an acceptable resolution for the broken items that ended being more than the industry standard in damage insurance. Also, Ran was very professional during his communications with me, and was accommodating when possible. While some things could have gone smoother, Ran did his best to make up for those things. in general, I was satisfied with the outcome of the move.

"This is the 2nd time we used
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
. The 1st time was back in May 2013, that was a very small move mostly 1 bedroom worth of furniture. We clear out our house earlier and the move was super quick. The new location was less than 5miles away (the total time was less than 3hrs), but since there was a 4hrs minimum we paid for the full 4hrs anyway. Good thing we used Angie list coupon. The
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
27 2013 move was more involve. I called to schedule on12/23 hope to get anything before the New Year.
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
was able to find us the last open spot on 12/27. Since we just moved early in the year, they honor the old hourly rate (it went up like 30$/hr!!!). They helped us with furniture, stereos, big TV, boxing up loose items (kitchen, toys shoes etc...) and clothing. The truck called us before they left the office (in
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
) to give us an estimate time (to south San
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
) and arrived on time (8:15AM). We were very disorganized this time like we "forgot" to ask for the wardrobe boxes until almost all the furniture was loaded onto the truck already. According to
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
(the leader), we had 11boxes!!! They quickly helped us pack the closet up and double check for us in all rooms if we are missing anything. One disappointing thing: they folded our mattress!!! I caught them and I told them they damage the spring inside, is there other way of moving the mattress. They offer to package it up with cardboard boxes (yes, the box cost like 30$). I gladly pay for them, if they have ask me before they folded and tapped the mattress together. That really get me upset!!



The first stopped was the condo. They helped set up the
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
table (add the leaf in the middle & place the glass on top) & moved all the boxes to the correct room (l labeled them with different color post-it) . I quickly unload the 11 wardrobe boxes and didn't get charge for "borrowing" them. The 2nd stop was the storage unit down the road. When we got to the place there was other people blocking the exit & gate.
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
told me they have another job in Mountain view afterward but his men still work very carefully and patiently around the other blockage people. They nicely line up boxing and items in our storage unit for us so we can access them easier. It was a full 7hrs work. Later that night, my husband pointed out there was a missing piece of glass in the stereo cabinet. I sent an e-mail to
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
and didn't hear back until 12/30. She didn't know about the glass and she contacted the dispatch right away. They were able to located the glass in one of their truck and
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
drop it off at our front door (we weren't at home). He carefully propped it up with our doormat & flower pot to make sure it will not break. Very happy with
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
and will gladly recommend them to any one and use them again any time. One praise:
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
point out to us about a yelp deal ($60 for 90$) and we were about to saved $50 for our 2nd move! One complain: the 2nd move the crews didn't wear any plastic covering on their shoes while the 1st move crews were putting them on before we even mention anything.

"First I would like to say that the representatives I worked with were very detail oriented asking many questions that at first you think may be out of ordinary but I assure you that these questions that are asked are for your own benefit! The team arrived morning of the move and walked through the home with me and made sure i agreed to all the terms prior to starting the job. I have used movers in the past so i was sketchy. however i could not find the man power so i had to resort to movers again. The guys handled my belonging with care and worked very fast. I would recommend them to anyone and will be using them for my future upcoming moves.

"3 movers showed up. They were polite and professional. They packed my clothes in the closet into their portable closet. They disassembled and reassembled the king bed for me. The only thing I had to pay extra was the tapes they used which they informed me at the arrival.

"I had a hard time deciding which company to use for this move and joined Angie's List just to get recommendations on who to trust with this valuable furniture. I had a very good experience with
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
. My furniture was well taken care of and arrived in excellent condition. The truck drivers were pleasurable to work with at loading and unloading. The shipment took a little longer to get here than I expected, but I was not in a rush, so that was not an issue for me. The customer service people on the phone were very responsive, courteous and helpful. They seem to work with a number of small family owned businesses with which they have long relationships, so while shipments are consolidated, they aren't given out to totally random people.

"Crew of three arrived on time and worked diligently and carefully to complete the move promptly with quality well within budget.

"We moved from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 2-story home and were really concerned about the movers being careful with our newly painted walls and newly cleaned carpets in the home. Therefore I made sure that
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
knew about our requirements ahead of time so that the crew could come prepared with carpet runners etc.
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
(Foreman),
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
and Artem arrived in a timely fashion and once again when our requirements were voiced to the crew they were super careful with our furniture and ensuring that they put down the runners down prior to taking the boxes and furniture into the house. They were also super careful about nicking the walls as they brought the heavy furniture up to the second floor and into the house in general.
The only thing that perhaps could have gone smoother is the time that the paperwork took. I feel that the paperwork ate into a lot of the time that could have been spent on the move. When you are paying by the hour, this is particularly important. Therefore, I felt that it could have taken a little less time than it did for the move to be completed and therefore we could have saved a bit more money on this end.
Overall, we were happy with the professionalism of the crew and the office staff and their understanding of our needs.

"Fantastic!
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
was a pleasure to coordinate with. The price was slightly higher than other estimates we received, but
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
sounded like a stand-up professional guy & another site's reviews gave us a good idea of what to expect. My husband was there for the pick up, and said that the guys were all very nice, professional & efficient. My mom reported back that the delivery of that spa went very smoothly, and the guys even took the time to show her how to use it. Very pleased with the service provided. Thank you
San Jose Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
& team!

"Only supplier that came out for an inspected quote. Expectations were clearly communicated. Quote was similar to others for price. (got a small break as the final invoice was written up, think they liked my prep work) 3 Man crew. Finished in about 2:35. Only a slight writedown as the youngster of the crew was a bit more eager than aware as he moved with loaded hands (no damage, just a few knocked doors)
"

"The movers arrived right on time, they were efficient and nothing was broken or scratched. I would highly recommend them, there are probably other companies that may charge less but Shamrock was worth the price for the service we got.
