" was great. He was on time, quiet in our work environment, professional and gave us a very fair price. I not hesitate to recommend him." I plan on using him next year when we do our annual office clean up.

"The owner, Mr. , and his two men arrived at the appointed time and did not rush their work, carefully taking it apart and expertly wrapped" each piece of furniture with many layers of of protection. They have pride in what they do, and it shows! My called today to tell me that they delivered and unpacked it with the same care and courtesy. I've been a member of Angie's list for five years or so; I've never had a better experience.

Movers & Moving Companies

Moving every possession you own from one house to another is a major undertaking filled with potential pitfalls. Here's what you need to know to organize your move whether you are hiring a moving company or doing it yourself.

Knowing how to properly pack your items into the correct boxes can greatly aid during the moving process, says Hess. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Tammie R. of Chicago)

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 !

They came on time with a U-Haul. They came on the day they were supposed too. I Hired 3 movers for the move. They completed the move. The reason for the low rating was due to the following reasons. 2 of the three movers seem qualified the other mover was slow and not experienced. The movers came with nothing but blankets(no tools, I had to find them ...More tools, meanwhile they were staring around). They moved fast but were disorganized. What made me rate them even lower was the fact that during the move into the new apartment they lost some of the tools and hardware for some of the furniture, and the weird part was that they didn't reassemble the furniture correctly and many of the pieces were not fastened correctly or not at all. Mostly all the furniture that needed to be reassembled were missing parts because they were disorganized and cut corners. My bedroom set had some electrical that was disassembled and not reassembled at all and behind furniture. My bunk beds are now missing about half the hardware they started with. They had not idea how/what/where to reassemble furniture or where the missing hardware went. Will not use again in future.

The move went great. The guys were on time and organized, and they were very pleasant. The best part is that they said don't worry we are here to make this less stressful for you. And that's what they did. Moving into the apartment was difficult because of narrow stairs but they handled the difficulties with patience and a positive, can-do ...More attitude. I was very relieved and happy because long distance moves can be stressful. I was very happy I hired 's. And the price was fair. I received other quotes at a higher price with only 2 movers. I had 3 movers.

I've had two very negative experiences with the national moving chains (American Van Lines and Nationwide Relocation Services) and since then have been very cautious about hiring movers. This small, local business did things right from start to finish and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a mover in the area.
They answered ...More all of my questions leading up to the move.
They quoted me an exact price that wasn't based on an unknown variable such as hours worked or weight of the truck.
They showed up on time and while they loaded the truck quickly they weren't being careless or mishandling my belongings. After they went straight to (and showed up before I did). I was in communication with them on the road.
On the other end, I labeled my boxes based on what room they were going in, and stacked them neatly. They had no problem following this instruction and went out of their way to ask about the ones I forgot to label. Nothing was damaged, misplaced or forgotten.
This is a good, honest local business that I would recommend to anyone.

In a nutshell, the entire move went very badly. We called to ask questions about scheduling a move about a week in advance. We gave detailed instructions via email at the time we scheduled the move; these were not passed on to the men who arrived to do the job. When the two men arrived at 11:00a, they seems rather lost. I greeted them and showed them ...More the things that would need to be moved. They did not speak; only nodded. When I asked if they had any questions, they said no, and that they were going to go out to their truck to get their equipment. As they were leaving, one of the men said "I am leaving at 3:00, no matter what."
This worried me and I called the owner. I told him I was concerned about the level of professionalism and the fact that the men said they had a deadline. He assured me there was no deadline, and that we had all the time we needed. He vouched for the men and said that both were very professional and highly skilled. I unfortunately believed him.
We were told they would have tools to disassemble any furniture that would need to be broken down before it was moved. They arrived with only two screwdrivers. The loading processes took much longer than we thought. It seemed to us that they were moving intentionally slow, as they were being paid hourly. The truck took 2.5 hours to load. Despite the detailed instructions provided well in advance, the movers did not know where to go or how to bring the equipment into the new space.
We had told them ahead of time that some large furniture in office space we were moving into would need to be relocated. The owner said this would not be a problem. When the two movers saw the furniture, they griped and called their boss, complaining the the job was going to take longer than they planned. Around 2:00, the men called their boss to ask for more help. He said more help was on the way.
Before any additional help arrived, one of the two movers left the job at 2:30. This was not communicated to me until 4:00. I was under the impression that both men were still working. Eventually the owner showed up with 2 additional men. They didn't not arrive with any additionally tools to help reassembly the furniture. A fair amount of the furniture we asked them not to reassemble, as it was taking so much longer than we had planned.
The move was not anticipated to take more than 4 hours. It ended up taking 7 hours. We negotiated the price, due to all of the trouble. Instead of $735 (7 hours @ $105 per hour) we ended up paying $500.
I would not recommend this service provider to anyone. They were hired so that we would not have to move the furniture ourselves. We had to assist the movers significantly; otherwise, we would have been there a lot longer, waiting for them to finish the job. As it was, they did not finish till after 6:00p. The scope of services was preformed extremely unprofessionally. There was no contract, no reply to my email. The truck they used was a rented U-Haul truck. Despite their name, they were extremely unreliable.

2 movers ( & ) moved all items and were in good spirits the entire time, even though many items were heavy.
They arrived on time, helped with extra work such as disassembly of heavy items, were very accommodating and professional.
called multiple times to confirm ...More the job and ensured we were informed about all neccessary details.

The 2 workers were on time, if not early. They were extremely professional and pleasant. In no way did they dilly . They never stopped until the entire job was completed. I had a large couch that needed to go out the back patio 1 floor up and they did it without hesitation. They also took my daughters crib apart and put it back ...More together without any problems. They brought all of their own tools and pretty much took care of everything. I am a single mother on a budget and I was so pleased with the affordability as well as the feeling that I had nothing to worry about and was in good hands. I've already recommended this company to others, and will continue to do so in the future.

The woman on the phone was pleasant and accommodating. She said...no reason to come in, just sign the papers when the movers are done. They gave me an estimate on-line based on the list of items I gave them. The guys were on time, introduced themselves to us, asked what was going and what was staying, got the entire job done in less than two hours, ...More and did an excellent job. I have hired these movers in the past when my son moved and I cannot give them enough praise. The end payment was less than the estimate as they took less time than was estimated. I highly recommend this moving company.
