"The move went well.
and Ralf moved the furniture like the experts they are! The treadmill was very heavy, but they took their time, laid" down blankets, and successfully got the treadmill to its new location. Then they packed two other pieces of furniture -- wrapped them in blankets -- and safely delivered them to another local address. I am very happy with their professionalism and expertise. Would definitely hire them again.

"My dad died just before Thanksgiving (my mom passed about 3 years ago), and one of the items in their house that I wanted to have is a beautifully and intrinsically" hand-carved wooden swan that they had purchased when they lived in
. It was about 15 pounds, and about 2 feet in length. I took the swan and a few other small items to PakMail in
SC to have them shipped to me at home, and I emphasized to
at PakMail how fragile this swan was in particular. The wood itself was not fragile but the long swan neck could be broken if it was abused.
assured me that they would pack the shipment with the utmost care and ensure its safe delivery. The shipping alone was about $185. I insured the shipment for $200, thinking that even if the swan arrived slightly damaged, it should be able to be repaired by a good woodworker for about that amount. The box arrived more than a week later, a HUGE box, about 4 feet by 3 feet by 2 feet, and upon opening the box, which was very full of Styrofoam peanuts and bubble wrap, the wooden swan's neck had been broken. It was a clean break. I called PakMail, who asked me to go get an estimate from a local woodworker. I did so and sent him the estimate (under $200), where his instructions were that I should wait to hear from him and he would file a claim with
. I sent him pictures of the broken swan, as well as pictures of the box which showed no external visible damage. Several days later, a
truck came to my house, and the driver asked to pick up the broken swan. What? I did not know he was coming, nobody had said anything to me about this. I told the
driver that I did not have the box anymore, and questioned him about whether or not the swan could be transported safely. He thought for a moment, then said that
"does this all the time" and that he would ensure its safety. Although not offered, I would not let him take the swan without a receipt, so he (grudgingly) gave me a receipt with a claim number. I called PakMail and told them about this.
was upset since he said he had specifically told
*NOT* to pick up the swan, but he said since I did not know any better nor had been told anything differently, it would be ok. Not having heard anything from
a week later, I called
to inquire about the status of the swan, since I wanted to go ahead and get it repaired at the woodworker who had given me the estimate. After being transferred several times, I was told that the swan "had been damaged beyond recognition, and
had DISPOSED of it". What?? DISPOSED OF IT? That was NOT their call and what about the driver who said he could transport it safely?? The
supervisor took my statement to file a complaint against the driver but I knew in my heart that that would go nowhere. Talking and emailing with
[Snip] of
(who apparently is the
contact for PakMail), she finally told me after several more weeks that
would take no responsibility for this, and that since the insurance claim for $200 had been paid (and PakMail also felt bad enough about this to refund the $185 paid for shipping), that they would close this case. I told her repeatedly that even if one were to ignore the tremendous sentimental value of a very special item owned by my recently deceased parents, several Google searches showed that purchasing a replacement equivalent piece would be $500-$1000.
has demonstrated their willful destruction of personal property, their negligence in handling it properly, their unwarranted decision to DISPOSE OF IT (their exact words), and their unwillingness to do anything about it. Is that the kind of company YOU want to use to ship items that have ANY value to you at all? For me in the future, no way.
has officially responded saying that despite their "various admitted errors", there is nothing more they feel they need to do here.

I hired Flatpack to assemble 4 Ikea bookcases and assemble and mount two additional shelves. Tre from Flatpack was phenomenal - one of the best technicians we've hired for any service. Tre was very organized in his approach to the job, placing all pieces in different containers. He turned on his music, got in the zone and went to work. 6 hours later he had finished the job - not fast but careful and meticulous. Every detail was correct. He was also thorough in cleanup and took all the boxes with him. I have had some DUDS of contractors, so wanted to make sure to highlight someone very good. Highly recommend.

I wanted to donate my living room furniture to goodwill however I couldnt find a service that will pick up in my area. So I gave Flatpack a call and not only did they come out the next day and removed the furniture, they also took it to Goodwill and were kind enough to mail me a donation receipt. They were very professional and will go above and beyond for the customer. I will definitely use them in the future.

Can not say a bad thing about the crew we had
San Mateo Courier Service Provider Name Locked
by
San Mateo Courier Service Provider Name Locked
. They showed up on time and protected our furniture very well with blankets and wrapping paper. They then assisted in transporting everything to a storage facility where they unloaded as well. No damage, prompt and courteous. For a 200 deposit, they lend you their blankets to keep everything protected in storage. Will use them to help move out of storage. Thanks again.

They were very responsive and were even a little early from the
appointment time. They un-packaged everything move the new furniture
into place without hassle. They went as far as fullfilling my request to
have the old couch brought down to the basement. great guys and great
service!

We have been using their services for about three years. When our neighborhood grocery store burnt down, we had to find another place to shop. Also, we are getting older and their delivery services makes it much easier. They deliver items totaling over $60 and they are a good value. They are a great service! They provide a two hour window for delivery and always arrive in that frame. We order the delivery each week online and they deliver the next day. The drivers are very good people. I have not ever had any problems with their service.

was able to come out the next day after I called to move my 8 by 12' storage building. The first thing he did after speaking to me when he arrived was to look over the storage building. He pointed out a damaged spot I hadn't noticed. I had some work done earlier in my backyard. Fortunately, I was able to get that taken care of the next day.
