"This was a very big move for us. My wife and I are "empty nesters." Like many of our "baby boomer" , we were facing" the daunting task of downsizing from a capacious suburban home on a large treed lot, to a more compact urban location. Deciding what to keep, what to sell, and what to throw away after 20 years in the same home was quite stressful. Our plan was to keep half our possessions, dispose of as much as possible via an estate sale, and then discard or give away the rest. Closing of the sale of our home was uncertain right up to the final closing day due to the buyer's behavior, and my wife was scheduled for major surgery just one week after the targeted move date. I used Angie's List to select four highly rated movers with long track records of consistently top reviews. Three came out to our house and gave written estimates, one made their estimate by phone. Even estimating was a challenge because, at the time, we were still deciding what to move and what to sell. Plus, there was just so much "stuff" crammed into every cupboard, drawer, closet, attic and the garage. We got very good pricing from all four because (1) They understood that since we were sourcing movers from Angies' List, they had real competition from who are the best in the business, and (2) winter is "off-season" for movers and hourly labor rates are much lower than in months of peak demand. We narrowed it down to two, and then selected 's as having put forth the best plan for a two-day move with pricing of a 4-man team at $120/hour plus a 24 foot truck on day one and the same team plus two trucks on day two. CMS also moved furniture in our storage unit back to the house for the estate auction. CMS arrived on time both days. The crew was professional, clean cut, physically fit, polite, willing and personable. All spoke very good English. They worked two long days almost without pause, like pistons in an engine. The crew was a man short on the first day, but the other men just worked harder and longer. adjusted the pricing to $95/hour for the short-handed crew on the first day. The second day we had the full 4-man crew. Day one they worked from 8 am to about 6 or 7 PM. Day two, they worked from 8:30 am to 11:30 PM. , the crew leader, was an amazingly productive and efficient packer. CMS was very careful with our things and, although we have not completed unpacking (due to wife's surgery) we have yet to find a single broken item. The crew humped heavy furniture and boxes of books down one flight of stairs and into the trucks on the move out and humped up as many as three flights of stairs on the move in. They disassembled a huge electric massage chair that was too heavy and fragile to move in one piece and correctly re-assembled it in the second floor master bedroom of our town home. They took down three wall mounted large flat screen TV's and a sound system. They packed and moved many precious possessions, glass items and fine art with care. I thought for sure that we would blow through our budget because there was so much to do. But the men worked at a steady rapid pace long into the night. They never seemed to tire no many how many times they lugged heavy objects up stairs. I think the crew's efficiency and stamina was a big factor in keeping down the cost of our move. I was pleasantly surprised that the final tab came within estimated minimum-maximum. We were so delighted with the exemplary service that I tipped the crew $200 although no tip was requested. We give our highest recommendation.

"Prompt, friendly, honest, responsive to our needs and questions. They moved with urgency while still caring for our belongings with more professionalism than I" thought possible from a moving company on such a large task. They wrapped everything with care, moved with care and with incredible efficiency. Honestly, we thought they underestimated our job based on other bids. We called them in advance of the move to ask if they were certain of their numbers and they said regardless, they would stand by their bid. The movers were amazed when they arrived and ended up requiring two vehicles instead of just the semi that was initially projected. But good to their word, the bill was exactly as expected. We made sure we tipped well. Our experience with these guys was outstanding. In fact, I joined angies list if for no other reason, to give them a great review. My wife and I were extremely concerned about the move and getting quality movers. It was simply not something to be concerned about based on the job they performed for our family. I would recommend them to my family and friends without reservation. They also stored our possessions for approximately three weeks, everything was fine, no issues whatsoever.

Before you get a quote from a moving company for your upcoming move, one highly rated provider shares five expenses you may not have considered.

Don't think of it as necessary because movers are paid low wages.  Tipping is always optional.  Some service industry's normally see tips, such as food service and moving.  Others such as plumbing and painting do not.  Why?  I don't know.

Generally, our movers are tipped and the prospect of a tip I believe keeps them moving with "a sense of urgency".

If you feel that the movers are already getting paid, and they are... you don't have to tip.  Some people that receive a service like to recognize service that is above normal with a tip.

Either way we hope your move went well.

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 !

I've used this company once before without any problems however this time was a complete disaster. To make a long story short the sales rep failed to provide the necessary equipment to move all of my belongings. One truck was was initially all that was needed however the movers could not fit everything into the truck. A second truck was requested ...More and a small van showed up. Ultimately, the van couldn't fit everything and we were forced to leave some belongings in the garage, with permission of the new owners of course.
The day was extremely hectic and Statewide Moving made it 100 times worse. I had my property stored overnight with the expectation the trucks be at the new place the next morning....they didn't show up until the afternoon. The movers, themselves, were descent and nothing was broke or missing. Oh, and additional fees were required due to their failure and I got hounded until I paid.
Do yourself a favor and avoid this company. Moving day is hard enough...save yourself the aggravation and hire someone else.

The crew arrived promptly in the morning. Kumaul was there himself along with a crew of 5. They worked hard all day till 7 pm. They were professional and friendly. I have a lot of glass and fragile furniture. Everything was delivered and even my glass end tables came with no problems. I requested Kamaul be here in California to oversee the unloading ...More of the truck. He not only came himself but brought his right hand man.

and his team were exceptional in taking care of all aspects of our office move from one building to another in downtown White Plains during a torrential downpour. This was a complicated move for any professional mover and the difference between this move and our previous office moves with different companies over the past twenty ...More years was night and day. This move went smoothly because of the attention to detail that and his staff devoted to this project. They handled all of the packing and preparing of our items so that we could devote our time to our business. From the supervisors to the individual staff, the professionalism displayed was outstanding. Great care was devoted to safe guarding fragile items.
We put our trust in could not have asked for a better experience. If you are looking for first class service, is the company to choose

The 3 men that provided the service were wonderful-- prompt, very friendly, professional, and accommodating. They worked quickly and needed minimal direction. Once we arrived at the home, they unloaded the truck quickly and placed the items in the home. These 3 young men appeared as if they really enjoyed their work. I will be moving to South ...More in 2 years, and I wish I could use them for that move!

Broke numerous glass picture frames, and damaged furniture. it took two days to pack. I gave the guys a very nice tip after the first day, thinking it would be for both days of packing. The most annoying aspect was that after the conclusion of packing on the second day, the guys were hanging around incessantly hinting about the need for a second tip. ...More This put me into an extremely uncomfortable position. I didn't want to antagonize the crew, since they still needed to complete the move, and I didn't want them to carelessly damage my possessions.

After the move was completed, and I discovered the damaged items, I called the owner to let him know. I never got a call back.

I definitely would not utilize their services in the future. Some of the guys were very nice and respectful. But enough of them had their hands out, that I felt taken advantage of. Then, on top of that to have damaged goods, and no call back from the owner one would be foolish to use these movers just because their price is reasonable.

are the best! I received a quote that day and coordinated the date & time with over the
phone. , Atilio and arrived on time and were awesome! They carefully disassembled my bedroom furniture and entertainment ...More center. They wrapped all of
the furniture in plastic and then reassembled them perfectly in my new home.

They were very attentive as they maneuvered my furniture going upstairs and between
doorways. Once all the furniture was back in place I did my walk through and I
was happy with the move. Wonderful guys. I appreciate the care they took was
thrilled at how well the job turned out. I will gladly recommend them to my
friends and would absolutely hire again!
