Movers hired? Check. Moving day scheduled? Check. Packed? Um…
Packing boxes may seem easy (though time-consuming), but there are right and wrong ways to do it. This how-to guide can help you have a good moving experience.
Before you throw canned and dry goods away, know that food pantries will gladly take them off your hands.
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 !

offer the option of choosing to wait for an estimate based on weight. I questioned this regarding items she did not list in packing but was told this was a firm estimate with only exclusions being a shuttle fee & added value insurance coverage, both of which I knew would be needed. Now that the move is complete, they are claiming I owe an additional $200+ for items which were
never invoiced to me. I have no idea what this fee refers to but as I told her, the initial fee was declared firm, and I would not have chosen a company who could add on fees at will when the move was complete.
The demeanor of the move was horrendous. On moving day the head guy got extremely angry because they forgot to bring the large size boxes for final packing. He turned to me and yelled that it was my fault for having so many demands! As I told him, I made requests of
Packing was extremely disappointing in that items were packed haphazardly with lids in one box, containers in the other. Many items got sent to my storage unit without my permission so that I have ended up having to re-buy items. They neglected to
pick up the rug which was scheduled to be picked up along the way as they dropped off the piano at my son's residence, so that I incurred an additional cost to hire someone to do this after the move.
Damages incurred were as follows:
Dining chairs torn on corners
Glass table top scratched
Wooden bed leg split
Original wall sculpture broken
Large framed print significantly damaged, glass broken, mat damaged
2 floor lamps no longer usable, due to threads being stripped on one and another failing to function.
Shelf decor broken
While I realize that these damages are limited compared to all the glass items I own, the problem occurred afterwards.
When I asked for claim forms for these items I was told I would not be given claim forms until I paid this newly created balance due of $200+ I said I would not be paying that after already having paid approx. $9000, as the original estimate was supposed to be firm. Now nearly 8 wks later I have received a letter from this company offering me $375 to let this claim go. As I told him them the damaged items would come to well over $1000 but I was willing to settle for $600, the price of the added-value insurance policy which I purchased to avoid having to deal with the claim process. Since I refused the $375, I have not heard back from
this company despite my letting them know that the end of
Moving crew was great as well and helped packing up all the stuff that we needed overnight (toiletries, linens, etc.). We made two trips due to all the stuff that we had and given that we were only moving a couple of blocks away. I had just had my carpets cleaned in my new house and they were very accomodating to take their shoes off and have an alternating inside and outside crew.
They helped make moving a much more enjoyable experience and I would definitely use then again and recommend them.
I would highly recommend this company!!!
