Hyde Moving Co
Well we moved from a third floor apartment with odd stairways into a new home and we had a great experiance. the crew was very well mannered and professional, all my Furniture was safe and delivered without a problem. They showed up 5 minutes early and were done almost an hour ahead of scheadule. They sure do know what they are doing. I recommend Hyde moving to any one who wants a smooth move. My family and I are greatly satisfied, we will use them in the future fore sure.

My Bellhops did a great job! They were fast and completed the job faster than estimated, which saved me money! I wouldn't recommend if you're uptight about your furniture though. There were a couple scratches, but nothing I worried about.

Bellhops provided a great moving experience to me and my family. They arrived on time, moved efficiently, and showed more care than expected for a moving company. Would recommend to anyone planning to move.

They did a great job moving my furniture to the other side of town and even when I found myself getting emotional during the moving process, they were very understanding and very patient with me.

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.
