Fox Movers
I was referred to Fox Mover from a friend. I called and was very happy the way they explained things to me. They came to my house right on time and was happy to see how professional and respectful they acted. They gave me the best service I have ever had from a moving company. They did moved everything out quickly and carefully, I was truly impressed. They unloaded everything quickly and with great care. Normally moving can be a painful experience but Fox Movers it as painless as possible. I would gladly recommend this moving company to all my friends and family.

Fox Movers
I had two bad experiences with one of the removal company. They promised to deliver things on time and with great care but they failed to keep their promise. Recently I took help of Fox Movers and I was completely satisfied by their outstanding service. They didn’t give me any chance to complain. Highly recommend them.

We used Fox Movers because we saw them working at our friend’s moving. This was my first moving inside the US and I will use them again next time! And I must say that they really cover a vast area for moving. We hadn't to worry about anything because their manager made me promise that he is going to provide me with the nicest team and so he did. They took care of all our belongings. The price was great. The customer service was helpful and easy to contact, even through email. These guys are really great to work with!

Vitesse Moving & Transfer Inc
I hired Vitesse Moving & Transfer to move my office. There were a lot of fragile items which I was a little concerned about, to make things worse it was also raining that day. When movers started unloading and unpacking at the final address I was pleasantly surprised to find out that none of my office belongings was damaged or even got wet. Everything was packed so carefully and thoroughly that I did not have to worry about any possible damages. Vitesse movers showed high level of professionalism and expertise. I would give them 10 stars if I could.

Smooth Relocation Van Lines
We needed to be picked up in 2 days and no one I spoke with could get it done. Well 2 or 3 companies could do it but they were charging me a "last minute reservation fee" of $1200. Finally I found Bill with Smooth who did not charge me as much and was able to get me picked up last minute. These guys are professionals and they are life savers. I highly recommend them especially that they told me last minute moves are no big deal for them.

Smooth Relocation Van Lines
After a terrible experience moving a few years ago (lost stuff, rude movers, delays), I almost tried to do the whole thing myself. My sister convinced me to try Smooth Relocation and that was the best advice ever, sometimes she's a help lol. The movers were not only punctual, careful and polite, they were good enough to keep me updated of where they were throughout the transit stage because they could tell I was nervous. I almost couldn’t believe it when the whole thing was completed on time and nothing was damaged/lost.

Infinity Movers
I had a great experience with Infinity Movers!! I was scheduled to move on 5/5 and they were set to arrive at 11a.m. Right around 10:30 they called to let me know they were ready....great! When the two movers arrived, they were polite and had all of my furniture loaded onto the truck in roughly 20 minutes. We proceeded to the new apartment and they had everything unloaded very quickly. Once they got the furniture unloaded they helped set up the tv, move the tv stand and place the pieces of the couch in their proper position. I was so pleased with their service, skill, and attentiveness, that I will not hesitate to use them again and recommend them to friends and family! Thank you!

Infinity Movers
I had a HUGE move out of a 3 story walkup, into a 1st floor (thank goodness). I was completely packed which is always important. Movers can work faster if you are ready! These guys did a fantastic job. They could not have worked any harder and they did not waste any time. The move did take 10 hours, and that's what it takes. We have lots of furniture, lots of stuff. Everything arrived with no damage. The guys were all great to work with. Recommendation...YES!
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.
