Kern Legal Services, Inc.
I recently had Kern Legal Services, in Bakerfield serve on defendant evading service, and couldn’t be more pleased with them. The individual I spoke to on the phone was extremely helpful. The online forms were simple to use, and within minutes of emailing my documents they sent confirmation telling me it was received and would be going out for service. I warned them that the defendant would be difficult to serve, and they did not seemed at all concerned about it. He did try an evade service, but after a few attempts, They got him! I paid one reasonable fee which they took care of the rest by sending an email notification regarding completed service on defendant and providing a proof of service for filing with the court. I had never needed to use a process server and didn’t have a idea on where to go. Now, I have a clear choice and will be recommending them if the opportunity ever presents itself again.

The UPS Store
This location is conveniently located in Southwest Bakersfield, around the corner from my apartment. I opened a mailbox there because I simply couldn't trust the one at my apartment complex. The staff is always pleasant and willing to help, despite being a busy location. Great service!!

Tips & Advices
Yes, it’s best to empty drawers, wardrobes and chests before a move. Items always get knocked around a bit, and doors can fly open even if they’ve been taped. In fact, more often than not, movers will want to remove the drawers from a dresser--or disassemble the wardrobe to be more space-efficient.
Yes, it is customary to tip movers, but the amount varies widely. For full-service moves, a 5 percent tip is suggested, although, for extra service, some people go up to 10 percent . For small local movers, you can give each mover $10 for a few-hour job, or $20-$40 for jobs that take longer.
A bill of lading is the legal contract for the move. It provides a detailed receipt, in addition to a contract between the client and the mover. It authorizes the mover to transport the goods from one specific point to another, and it outlines the exact scope of services, with cost breakdown for those services. It also provides an itemized list of the inventory, and carrier liability protection for each declared item. Finally, it specifies the payment arrangement. Make sure to go over your itemized list extremely carefully before finalizing the paperwork--and get a copy of the full document. A good mover will go over everything on the bill of lading with the customer.
There are several items that moving companies will not move – those items will be listed on a document as “non-allowables.” These items typically fall in three categories: perishables, sentimental/personal items, and hazardous material. Perishables are food and plants. Sentimental/personal value is up to the client to decide, but usually includes jewelry, medical and dental records, personal paperwork, valuables and collectibles. Hazardous material is the tricky category, since it includes a lot of everyday items found in the garage, garden or kitchen. For example, cleaning liquids and pesticides both are considered non-allowable by many companies. Some go so far as to disallow nail polish and batteries.
A binding estimate means that the moving company cannot charge more than the stated amount, though they can lower the final bill if the scope of the job was smaller than expected. A non-binding moving estimate is more likely to wind up costing more than expected, since the movers can increase their rates for unforeseen variables like stairs, “long carry” and materials.
