My best friend used this company and she had damage to multiple items. Scratches on her dining room table and broken glass also paintings were destroyed that were one of a kind .The owner
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
claimed to replace the items witch she never did because she was not insured .My girlfriend paid almost double what the original estimate was . The crew that was provided smoked cigarettes every 5 minutes because she was paying by the hour .Overall it was a nightmare experience . Items were missing when brought to the owners attention she said you

can't prove that , which is true .Bottom line the service was very unprofessional and lousy .The owner is very shady and I don't want this company to rip off anyone else because it's not fair and it's a scam business.

Worst move ever! First they did not honor the first quote
they gave me. They waited until the last minute and then charged me an addition
$1000. Then they charged me for packing (not part or door to door they said!
Then they had my container checked by customs and charged me another $1800.
Next they sent me an invoice for another $1600 from the sea shipping company
that was sent to them. And they picked up my shipment over a month ago and it
is still at LA. It has cost my almost $13k so far! Do not use this company, it
will cost you a arm and a leg and take forever!

, Butch and
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
were great. They were very professional, courteous and efficient. They handled the projects with care, optimistic attitudes and completed everything we needed done perfectly.
When they first arrived, they literally rolled out a red carpet (pad) in order to protect the floors simply for the foot traffic. They were helpful and easy to work with when placing furniture in just the right place...if they didn't think it was right, they presented a solution.
These are the kind of people you want when working with the most discerning of people and customers.
Did a great job for.
Will definitely call them for the next job in the Palm Springs area.
Thanks guys!

s.The job got done right. The 3 movers were pleasant and hard working. They responded to all of my requests. Booking them was easy. The crew showed up on time, and worked consistently.
However, I am glad that, as the homeowner, I was on-site for the entire process and available to advise about not leaning on walls, care when dealing with framed art work, and the weight involved in certain items that were unsuitable for stacking. They had problems keeping a storm door open that a previous mover had no problems with. The

movers did not seem to be used to working as a tight unit. They did not wear uniform-like attire.
Overall, for the type of items being moved and the comparatively

cost per hour,

for an entire house, with my good furniture or big appliances.

It went great. I had some Ikea items that would not fit in my car or most SUV/minivans (the sofa). Ikea only had delivery available on a day I worked.

also offers assembly and I was very tempted to have him do that but decided to do that my self. Very pleasant and professional. The Ikea team knew him. I still had to pay Ikea's home shopping fee to pick out the items (40). It did cost me 20 more than using Ikea but so much more convenient.

I first needed a small truck and some strong guys to help move the contents of a rented storage unit to my new house. I called
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
and he sent 3 guys and 2 trucks, just in case one was not enough, at no extra charge. His intuition proved correct, as we needed both trucks. The guys on the team were polite, efficient, and very concerned about making sure everything was transported safely and securely. They wrapped just about everything in cloth padding and cling-wrap. At the destination, they unloaded and unwrapped everything, continually checking with me to ensure it was to my liking. It was!
Several weeks later, and based on the positive experience I had with the storage unit move, I engaged the same crew to do a major move of my house -- over 2,000 square feet crammed full of bookshelves, computer equipment, desks, chairs, large furniture items, etc. This time,
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
sent 5 crew and 3 trucks, and the job necessitated 3 trips in all. The guys worked really hard, from 9am Saturday until 1am Sunday, with only two short breaks for meals. Then they came back later Sunday and worked for another 6 hours. All this time, they maintained the same cheerful, courteous attitude I experienced during the first job.
Everything was carried to the correct room upon arrival, and items that were disassembled before moving were reassembled after delivery. They were very careful to avoid damaging items in transit, and careful of walls and doors as the maneuvered the items in and out of the houses. They also laid down pads on carpeted areas to prevent any soiling from their shoes.
One little thing that impressed me -- one of the workers let slip a mild swear word when he jammed his fingers while handling a heavy item. He immediately apologized to me, even though I've heard much worse. This was the only time during the many hours we worked together that I heard anything that could be deemed even mildly offensive. Other moving crews I've engaged in the past used profanities in just about every sentence, and kept each other amused with sexist and racist jokes. Not so
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
-- I would have been comfortable with them moving furniture at a church or kindergarten!
Overall, I'm very impressed by
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
-- they're a lot less expensive than other movers I've used, and the quality of their work far exceeds many others I've used. I have no hesitation in endorsing them for any moving job in Los

20th!! We point
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
asked what the issue was, because this is was the 2nd time they were asking us that, and under no circumstances could those materials be dropped off early. They said there was a schedule issue, but they would work it out and someone would be there the next morning. We called again before we left for the day, and they assured us the truck would be there in the morning.

The next morning, we started calling them at 8:30 am asking where the driver/truck was, he was supposed to be there at 8am. Just after 9 am we finally got a hold of someone from their office who informed us that they were unable to secure a driver and truck for our load and that they wouldn't be coming.

My family contracted with
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
in
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
to ship a hundred year old grandfather clock from
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
to Portland, Or.
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
failed to properly secure and transport the clock. As a result of this, over $6000 worth of damage was done to the clock including physical damage to the clock cabinet and collapsing of the clock mechanism.
I have consulted with experts on the shipping of grandfather clocks (especially Herschede) who state that the clock was improperly shipped laying down. Grandfather clocks should be transported in an upright manner to minimize the risk of damage. Since
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
shipped the clock laying down, significant damage occurred to the clock.
While the vast majority of the other pieces we shipped arrived intact and undamaged, the significant damage to the clock is too much to overlook. For shipping general freight,
Allentown Courier Service Provider Name Locked
is just fine. But for valuable antiques which require a higher degree of care and expertise, I would look elsewhere.

Delivery was scheduled for between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm on August 1st.
At 1:00 pm there was no delivery and no communication of delay. When I
called to check on the status I was told it would be approx. 1 hour, at
most 1.5 hours before the delivery would be made.
At the
expiration of the outside window of 1.5 additional hours, still no
delivery and once again, no communication with me as the customer to
inform me of the status. The delivery was received at approx. 3:00 pm.
The driver was unapologetic, and annoyed with me when I wanted to
verify the condition of the item (as it said in HUGE letters on the side
of the box to do before signing) and huffed and refused to speak.
These
people WASTED my entire day since I could not leave my house and they
missed 2 of their own deadlines! The customer service people were
unhelpful and terse and kept me on hold for long periods.
The experience was horrible in it's entirety!
