I felt the customer service was not an automatic, required thing like in so many places. I felt these people were sincere, interested and caring. A possible problem instantly became a non issue in such a nice way. I would recommend them to anyone and would use them again if needed.
So this is my "Thank You" to them.....
In preparation, I had most everything boxed and LABELED prominently with colorful large stickers (6" x 8"), very little furniture - a total of 21 pieces which would be a sofa, recliner, bookcases, armoires, two patio chairs - only one piece required special attention ...
I also have two large pieces of artwork which required extra wrapping and a nice wall mirror ...
I had moved 90% of ALL OF MY BOXES to the room just off the front doors which is the point they used to enter and exit my home and they were all neatly arranged by room designation
When I made the appointment I was under the impression that the movers would take everything - didn't happen ...
In fact, when the movers realized they could not pack the truck in such a manner to accommodate everything (which I don't understand because there was a ton of vertical space available when I looked in before they closed it), I STRESSED they needed to pack everything LARGE because I only have a small car!
Didn't happen! In fact, my saving grace was that I was fortunate enough to have a
On top of that, when the movers were getting ready to close the truck they discovered the truck they were using was not set up to accommodate the ramp being stored on the outside of the truck (which they of course had to know before they loaded it) - they made a 15 minute adjustment for trying to figure out how to get it inside the truck before leaving ... didn't have time to watch and figure out how much time that took because I was looking inside my house trying to figure out how I was going to move the stuff they left behind!
My move was to a first floor apartment with a garage so it was fairly easy to maneuver - I realized it would be easier for them to stack the boxes in my garage .... now that I'm able to start unpacking I noticed that many of the boxes are placed UPSIDE DOWN and some things are broken - HARDLY ANY OF THE BOXES ARE PLACED TOGETHER FOR THE SAME ROOM -
VERY DISAPPOINTED after spending DOUBLE WHAT I had ANTICIPATED the move would cost and having to move the rest of my stuff for several hours - would not recommend!!! Very BAD EXPERIENCE!
These movers were professional, efficient, very hard working and a pleasure to work with. They were careful with my furniture, using furniture pads and giving additional attention to fragile items. They were very skilled at getting large items through narrow spaces, like up the basement stairs, and packaged the moving truck very efficiently. I was amazed at how quickly they were able to move everything.
