DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The absolute worst moving company in the New York area. Totally unethical and incompetent. They book jobs and then don't show up. And they don't even call to tell you they are not coming! This happened when they were supposed to deliver the boxes and packing material and then again when they were supposed to pick up the furniture. They are totally unreliable.USE ANYONE BUT THEM!And I suspect many of the favorable reviews on social media are contrived, likely written by employees.

I had typed out a whole long description of the nightmare move - the cut wires on expensive chandeliers that had to be rewired (at our expense!) the broken furniture, the bad attitude of and quot;Billand quot; and the massive about of damaged personal effects.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We were told this is a top moving company by several people, but we had such a bad experience I decided to write a review. To start with they billed themselves as a top quality moving company who handles jobs where antique furniture, expensive lighting fixtures, fine art, etc. The problems started immediately!

I have hired, or advised clients to hire, Padded Wagon off and on since 1986. In general I have always been happy with their work; I do think that they are a little expensive. In addition, not all of the individual workers are equally professional. I would recommend them, but would also suggest checking out some of the competition.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Moving from one apartment to another within New York City. Prior to their internal split (see New Yorker Warehouse) I used to store with them as well.

The move was as promised and the movers were great - nothing was broken and the supervisor provided boxxes before the move to make things go quicker. The only issue I have with Padded Wagon is that I thought I was billed too many hours for the drive to the storage facility and back - I make the round trip in 10 hours (without traffic) - I was charged for 18.5 hours. they did have to unload but tha...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Padded Wagon picked up boxxes and furniture from our residence and moved to a storage facility in another state
