Call Me Van Lines
100% positive experience! I've moved several times in the last handful of years so I have plenty of comparisons to rely on. This company was just plain great to work with. I loved that they were a family run business. The whole staff was completely accessible, available, and even cheerful about offering useful advice and answering my questions beforehand, as well as delivering packing supplies, etc. Their staff working in the office had the same helpful attitude. The estimate was very reasonable, prompt and professional, and I felt confident that there would be no surprises. As it turned out, I was right. Mine was a 20-day move about 2,000 miles. The crew who loaded my household onto the truck was fast and efficient, and used extra caution and good sense. The truck was tightly packed to the gills when it became apparent that a few items were just not going to make it on the truck, despite their planning and maneuvering.

Arman Jewelers
My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to purchase an engagement ring. I wanted something very specific and didn't think i was going to find what i was looking for in a case at a jewelry store. My mom had just recently got her ring custom done at Arman jeweler and highly recommended him. My boyfriend and I went into Arman and showed him a few pictures of what we wanted the ring to look like. He was a great listener and gave great suggestions also. Being that we had the ring custom made we had to wait a couple of weeks. It was defiantly worth the wait! It was exactly what my boyfriend and i envisioned it would look like,maybe better. Through out the wait he kept us up to date on what process the ring was in and it defiantly made the wait exciting! I couldn't imagine going to anyone else if I were to look for another piece of jewelry. If you are looking for someone that has you in mind, he is defiantly the person to go to.

Van Gundy Jewelers
They'll make you a hero!In November 2010 I custom ordered an engagement ring for my now fiance. The Van Gundy team made it one of the most seamless processes ever! It was a huge purchase and they helped me every step of the way. Needless to say, the end result was absolutely amazing! I would recommend this jeweler to anyone in Ventura County and beyond. You have to give them a try. The prices are fair and they treat you just like family!
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.
