A & A Moving
Avoid this moving company. Unprofessional and antagonistic to the customer. They don't follow any directions or requests. Rude language and damaged property. They took their time, over charged. The owner refused to make up for the cost and broke his verbal agreement to offer labour hours instead of repaying the difference for the overcharge. They packed my storage unit even worse and damaged expensive items. Generally, I would recommend A&A Movers to no one. The owner does not respect his customers.

I had firearms and jewelry kept separate from everything else. Told movers I would move those things myself. I went to work and got back to my home. A couple was packing, and one of the movers was playing with one of my firearms. They also packed everything I asked them not to, and put the items in different boxes in which some things were ruined and missing. They shoved a firearm at the bottom of a box with heavy items in it. They scattered jewelry and medication in boxes from kitchen to bathroom stuff. I also had dirty car part put in with expensive cloths and jackets. When I tried to get help I was told to call police about missing jewelry and they would do nothing. Then they hung up on me. I was then told they would come down and go through boxes at a later date to help find missing items and they did not. I was told to file a claim with my insurance and they would do nothing.

This moving company was very unprofessional. They damaged my furniture and stated they would fix it right away. They did not follow up on their word. They denied damaging anything. They did not care about my belongings they were pretty rough. I would not recommend this moving company to anyone.
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.
