  • Extreme care they had with my merchandise and belongings. Every piece they touched was handled as if it was a million dollars. Bill, the driver and Tyler was the helper. I was dissatisfied with the office crew. I received a lot of conflicting information on how I was going to be billed. Tracy and Debbie and Denise were involved by phone or in person.
  • I think everything was prompt, they packed everything, they were on time with everything. We had everything arrive, we only one toy that got broken, they compensated us for that. Other then that everything was fine.
  • Very professional and efficient. The moving crew went the extra mile to get a very heavy and challenging to remove treadmill from our basement. They didn't give up and handled the stress with amazing patience.
  • All the crews were great and ensured that every box made it safely. So far nothing broken too which is a major bonus!
  • Chuck, our first contact was very helpful and knowledgeable and got the weight and price almost to the pound. Carmen, our coordinator answered a ton of questions and made everything super smooth. Germain our driver and leader showed up with a great crew and was super fast loading up all our stuff. He then drove our things to our destination and again he brought a crew who worked hard and got stuff moved in incredibly quick. Everything was handled very well from start to finish.
