First thing was that when I was ready to take it out of storage, they wanted me to pay an additional $2000. That got resolved to some degree but it was like being held for ransom and it took over a week to get any resolution.  They, and me, agreed on a price up front for the entire move, store and install.  Then they moved me in on the first of March. There were a few minor things that were broken...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
They moved me from Los Angeles to the desert. I used them because they could store my furnishings for a couple of weeks in the desert before they moved me  to the property in the desert. I paid an additional $500 for insurance.  Their pricing was a bit more than other estimates I got however, it seemed more convenient to have my furnishings stored in the desert.  They used green numbered tags and wrote up an inventory list before putting things  on their trucks. Upon the final move, they did not check off each tagged item to confirm it was installed and there are items that I have never found.

In response to the letter left by the member I will point out all the events that took place and answer accordingly. Every move that we quote, we charge on a case by case basis. We never combined moves together with one price. If the client is moving into storage, they will get a price for moving into storage. When it comes time to move out of storage they get a separate price for moving out of st...

They did a fine job. They came and packed up a house full of furniture and took it to their storage facility. It took them half a day to do this and about 10 members were there. They were very efficient. They have storage containers and that is what they used. The units are climate controlled. To access the crate, I have to call them ahead of time and they bring them down and open them up for you.

Hi [member name removed], Thank you for the review. We knew the urgency to get our of your house, so if it took 10 Men to move you out, then thats what we had to do. Your items are safe and secure in our warehouse and when it comes time to move out, we will be ready for you. Let's make it another efficient move!

It was a fantastic service that they provided. They were very throughout, polite and they had a good bid price too for the move. The guys who did the work were very pro-active. It went very smoothly. They did the entire packing, loading and unloading for us. They went from Palm Springs and moved to two different locations in LA. This was all done in one day. I wished Angie's List would let me give...

The move went fine.  The movers were very nice.  They could have used a third person.  The price was great.  I had another estimate that was twice as much.

Thank you for the Nice comments about our crew. In order to keep the cost within the means of your budget, we only provided 2 Men. A 3rd Man would have taken less time, but the cost oft he 3rd Man was not in the budget you were looking for. Im happy overall that we could work with your budget, so thank you for working with us on the number of men we provided. If you ever need us in the future, don...

Didn't use them due to start and end is at THEIR office... not our home.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Contacted Honey Reese for a quote. She was very nice and professional. We have 2 Murphy beds that need disassembly and re-install... she had to hunt for someone that COULD do it. They were quick in e-mailing a bid to estimate moving without actually coming out to assess the amount of belongings to move.  Unfortunately, they were the most expensive I found so far at $145/ hr AND would charge $400 to do the Murphy Beds on top of it.  What really discouraged me was that they START the clock when they leave the office... Indio to Palm Spings is about 45 min... and END the clock when they get back... So a free 1.5 hrs they get paid extra??? No thank you.

They were suppose to move us, however, after a rude and unprofessional meeting with the representative and our calling to speak with the owner, we never received a call from the owner but when we called in to follow up, the office person stated they were cancelling their services.  The owner and his representative did not have the professionalism or courtesy to call.

Hi [member name removed], Thank you for the nice review and remarks. We, like customers don't like surprises, so we typically quote a little higher to give enough margin just in case. I glad that the quote ended up being less than the original quote. Our crews work very hard to stay within what is quoted and even beat the sales persons quote at times. Glad this happened for you. Please think of us...
