Ace Relocation Systems Inc
This moving company was great! Everyone I dealt with was punctual, polite and professional. I ended up receiving a partial refund from the company because they over estimated how much the truck would weigh. I know I shouldn't be, but I was pleasantly surprised to receive that refund. I have never received a refund before. Other moving companies have always magically been exactly correct with the weight. It's to know there are still honest companies out there.I will definitely use Ace Relocation for my next move.

Cardinal Moving Services Inc
Thank you your help in facilitating my recent move. My wife and I were in a position that we had to move within one and a half weeks and it could not have been easier because of all the help from everyone at Cardinal. The entire staff was courteous, knowledgeable, and most important fair and honest about cost and time estimate necessary to move. I had never used professional movers before, but after this experience, I will never consider going to anyone else for moving services. Arthur D.

Cardinal Moving Services Inc
I just wanted to take this opportunity to let people know how pleased my husband and I were with the quality of service from the team from Cardinal Moving Services, Inc. They were on time, professional and very fast. After pricing several movers, we decided to again go with Cardinal because the service was so exemplary from our move two years ago. After using Cardinal for two efficient and hassle free moves, we feel certain that we will never take our moving business elsewhere. In an industry with incredibly variable quality, we feel fortunate to have found a company that we can trust.
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.
